Drum drying system Drying and granulating in a single step Energy efficiency from combined heat and power generating (with a gas motor for example) The electric current for operating the sew- age sludge drying plant is supplied by a gas motor operated as a co-generation unit. Having no direct contact between CHP waste gas and the dryer system results in simple safety management The thermal energy required for drum dry- ing is provided from the gas motor exhaust mode to burner mode without impair- air and also from their cooling water shell. Efficient heat recovery is a very important Fast...

Safety engineering in ANDRITZ SEPARATION drying plants In this sector, dust explosions bear the highest risk potential. Measures must be implemented to prevent damage to individuals and to equipment as far as possible. Three requirements must coincide to create a dust explosion: Spark detection If at least one of these requirements can be reliably excluded, there will be no explosion. The primary safety measures derived from this and which are implemented in ANDRITZ SEPARATION belt dryers are strong dilution of any dust concentrations occurring, as well as monitoring of these concentrations...
