Dryer Models & Performance

Here you can find the performance values for our different Dryer Models, including gas and electrical requirements as well as sludge loading capacities and pellets produced per day. Values are relative to the percentage DS, given in examples of 15%, 20%, 25%, and 30%. Which model is right for your plant? What is the dry solids content of your filter cake? How much sludge do you need processed per day? Consider implementing multiple units for larger applications and guaranteed continuous processing.
