TUBE BUNDLE DRYERS – PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
The steam heated tube bundle slowly rotates in a fixed housing and conveys the product to be dried axially through the dryer. Shovels transport the product along the circumference of the housing, where it falls through the heated tube bundle for each rotation.
The economic and gentle drying is achieved by contact with the tubes and convection. The heat source is typically saturated steam between 4 – 10 barg, solutions with lower steam pressure are available.
