Solvent-wet Organic Solids


The drying problem was the removal of aromatic solvents from several different, heat-sensitive, granular, organic-solids products. Thorough cleaning of equipment at changeover is required to avoid product contamination. Previous drying methods required two rotary vacuum dryers. Successful pilot-plant tests at Wyssmont proved to be very reliable in forecasting full-scale results. They resulted in the purchase of a TURBO-DRYER®. The TURBO-DRYERS® advantages include automatic operation that provides manpower savings of one operator per shift ($25,000 per year). Large access doors allow quick, easy clean-up of dryer at product changeover and reduce downtime. Recovery of solvents substantially reduces operating costs. Precise temperature control provides uniform product quality.
