Efficient centrifugal dryer for any application
CYCLO® is energy-efficient pellet drying with minimal space required. The dryers are suitable for use with both PEARLO® underwater pelletizing and M-USG and P-USG underwater strand pelletizing systems. Well thought-out and highly accessible components, such as the core rotor device, serve to provide excellent operating characteristics and efficient servicing.
Basic principle of pellet drying
The drying operation as part of the pelletizing process consists of three individual steps:
- Pre-dewatering: Up to 95 % of the process water is removed by gravitational force.
- Primary drying: Bigger water drops adhering to the pellets are largely removed through airflow or mechanical movement.
- Final drying: The residual heat of the pellets is used to evaporate the remaining surface moisture.
