Available from ENCON Evaporators
ENCON offers the ENCON Drum Dryer for dewatering concentrated slurries and sludge to a dry condition. These systems are electrically heated, operate in batch mode, and are controlled on a time and temperature basis. Typical applications include: bottoms from ENCON Thermal evaporator, concentrate from ENCON MVC Evaporators, concentrated salt slurries, viscous solutions such as water based inks and paints, other water based sludge applications.
The ENCON Drum Dryer offers numerous advantages over other types of drying equipment including: Constant circular and vertical mixing of sludge or slurry to ensure homogeneous drying, Drum can also be the disposal vessel to minimize handling, Timer controlled to avoid over drying, Temperature controlled for safe drying, and Pneumatic lift system to easily remove mixing system from drum.
The ENCON Drum Dryer completely encapsulates a 55 gallon drum of sludge or slurry and heats it from outside the drum. Since the heating elements do not contact the sludge or slurry there is no requirement to clean the heat transfer surface. Temperatures are controlled with a thermocouple and timer system to provide consistent heating and accurate level of dryness. Hi torque motor and gear reducer provide gentle and consistent agitation even as solutions become more viscous and solid.
