Spray  Drying (equipment under development)

 

Pulse Detonation Drying Advantages

Spray drying is widely used across multiple industries and is known to be energy intensive. Spray drying with HRC technology reduces energy consumption and consequently the CO2 and NOx emissions.

Feed Requirements in spray dry applications

  • Any pumpable or augured feed materials — dissolved or suspended solids
  • Particle sizes from sub-micron to 5mm
  • Feed Solids as low as 1% converted to powder in a single pass
  • No upper limit for percentage solids in normal feed stock
  • No chemical additions required to raw feed

 

Operation

  • From a cold start-up to a dry products in less than 2 minutes
  • Low maintenance, no moving parts in the HRC dryer system
  • No high pressure nozzles or atomizing wheels or nozzles to wear out
  • Adjustable for fluctuations in particle size and moisture content
  • Computer controlled: only one person in attendance

 

Product Quality

  • Residual moisture adjustable automatically or manually
  • Product solids average 80°C controlled product feed and evaporation rate
  • Can process heat sensitive feed streams and food grade products

 

Emissions

  • Reduced CO2 and NOx emissions
  • No water discharge
  • Closed system operating under slightly negative pressure
  • Lower air vent volumes – less scrubbing required
  • Used with wet/dry scrubbers, HEPA filters, or electrostatic precipitators
  • Can be used on hazardous, radioactive, inorganic, organic process waste

 

Capital and Utility Costs

  • Less than an evaporator
  • Less than a spray dryer
