Need a way to dry material to reduce the weight and volume going to landfill? Want to claim RHI payments by using waste heat? Want to dry an unusual product that’s light or non-free-flowing? The Perry of Oakley Belt Drier allows you to do exactly that & more.
In the last 12 months the Belt Drier has delivered significant results by drying product quickly and efficiently, plus also reducing running costs and operating man hours due to its continuous flow process as opposed to batch systems.
Perry of Oakley Ltd have seen a wide range of applications for their Belt Driers, including drying woodchip, digestate, grass, refuse and paper pulp across the UK and internationally. Traditionally drying some of these materials has been achieved by rotary drum driers, however this method has many disadvantages, including:
- High risk of fire due to the average operating temperature of 426°C (800°F).
- Balling up of products.
- Potentially volatile emissions which may require additional permits.
- Not suited for heat recovery due to their higher operating temperature.
The Perry Belt Drier overcomes these issues whilst being more economically efficient due to the lower operating temperature and providing the opportunity to recover waste heat. The Perry Belt Drier is ideally suited to drying almost any non-free flowing product or more granular products that require a lower throughput capacity.
The Perry Belt Drier has an all galvanised construction and is built with a modular design, allowing for machine extensions at a later date if required. There are no louvres or perforations to become blocked, providing consistent air-flow. Because the air is drawn down through the product bed it means there is minimal product lift to contend with, making it suitable for drying light products such as straw and saw-dust.
