Our products have a long life cycle, low maintenance and high quality for their different applications.
Superheated Steam Dryer (SHSD)
Invented in the late ’70s at the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, our world-leading Superheated Steam Dryer uses superheated steam as media for drying of solid materials like paper pulp, sawdust, wood waste, animal feed, wet distillers grain, peat, sludge, tea, EFB (Empty Fruit Bunches), agro biomass, bagasse, sugar beet pulp, wet solid waste, etc. The applications are many, and the results are great.
Medium pressure boiler steam (7-17 bar), High-pressure steam (17-50 bar), biogas, natural gas, oil, flue gases, thermal oil can be used to indirectly supply drying energy. Of which we can recover 85-95% of the energy.
Key Features of Superheated Steam Dryer:
No Fire or Explosion risk due to the oxygen free environment within the dryer
No emissions to the atmosphere due to a closed loop design
Short residence time of few seconds, but still a dryness close to 99,9% dry solids can be achieved
The short residence time and absence of air ensures non-oxidised product and no risk of fire or explosion
Complete sterilisation of the product is guaranteed
Very small footprint, built on height
Easy Maintenance and high availability due to few rotating parts
Easy integration with other processes for energy optimization
Possibility to treat the generated steam condensate separately
The Exergy Superheated Steam Dryer can operate at pressures from 0,5 bar to 4 bar gauge, thus the moisture vaporised from the wet material can be used as a secondary steam. By utilising this steam over 95% of the drying energy can be recovered and used in other processes like process heating, evaporation/distillation, electricity production or district heating
