Continuous drying, which is always a fully automatic process, is suitable for high output applications and short throughput times. The quantities produced every minute or second may be dried, completely and gently, in exactly the same time. This can be done using a sophisticated combination of extremely dry air, targeted air routeing, and non-compressed air blowing technology, if required.
One of the outstanding features of Airgenex® condensation drying systems is their closed air circuit. Continuous belt drying involves openings at the tunnel's entrance and exit ends of the drying chamber. We always try to minimize these to prevent undesired air loss and to keep the precious heat in the system.
Specific parameters such as belt length, belt speed and air routeing are determined by drying tests run on our in-house pilot plant station. Then, we work out a successful drying solution in close co-operation with you!
It might be advisable, sometimes, to consider replacing continuous with batch drying. Projects realized have demonstrated the benefits of batch drying in situations where it relieves the need for product separation for placement on a belt and allows immediate drying of a full pallet of autoclaved products at a time. Fancy brainstorming?
