Granulizing-drying system

February 1, 2009


Kason’s granulizing-drying system consists of a centrifugal screener, a spheroidizer, circular fluid bed dryer and a vibratory screener that converts non-flowing moist solids discharged from cartridge and vacuum filters, filter presses, mixers and other equipment into uniform, compact, dry, de-dusted, free-flowing granules ready for storage, shipping, packaging or secondary processing. A centrifugal screener uses rotating helical paddles to break up lumps and drive non-flowing materials through apertures in a horizontal cylinder, producing moist pellets continuously at high rates. The unit handles smooth lumpy, sticky and otherwise difficult-to-handle materials.
