We specialize in low energy & ecological options that will significantly reduce your costs
Using clean steam rather than products of combustion, LOUISVILLE Steam Tube Dryers are one of the most ecological drying technologies. LOUISVILLE Steam Tube Dryers are indirect heat dryers utilizing the latent heat from clean low temperature saturated steam rather than hot gases from fossil
Higher thermal efficiency means lower fuel consumption and lower operating costs than other drying technologies.
Many industrial processes now utilize waste heat boilers, boilers designed to use process waste
LOUISVILLE Steam Tube Dryers do not use heated air as energy to drive the drying process. Only a very small amount of air is used to carry out the water vapor generated in the drying process. With such a small exhaust volume discharged from the dryer, the size and horsepower requirements of the air handling equipment are normally 80% less than direct heat dryers. And in some processes, the small amount of exhaust gas is sent directly to the boiler as combustion air completely eliminating air emissions. The larger volumes of dryer discharge gas from LOUISVILLE Steam Tube Dryers are used in many industries to convert process waste streams into valuable secondary products.
In the manufacture of Soda Ash, LOUISVILLE Steam Tube Dryers are used to convert Sodium Bicarbonate into Sodium Carbonate where CO2 is generated, captured in the dryer, and returned to the process to make more feedstock. Direct Heat drying technologies would contaminate the valuable CO2 by-product. Waste paper sludge which for decades had been sent to landfill is now being dried in LOUISVILLE Steam Tube Dryers and returned to the boiler as fuel.
