From ANDRITZ Gouda we offer drum dryers for drying of viscose, adhesive and pasty products.
The drum dryers are continuously working contact dryers. The product to be dried is applied as a thin film onto the steam-heated drum.
The dried product film is scraped off the drum and is reduced in size for continuous processing or bag filling.
The typical steam consumption for drying is 1.2 - 1.4 kg steam/kg water evaporation.
Drum dried products normally have a relatively high density.
ANDRITZ Gouda offers mill sifters for coarse size reduction of the dryer film from the drums and also for control sifting.
Certain products require pre-cooking or pre-sterilization for which ANDRITZ Gouda's JET-COOKER can be used.
For sharpening of scraper knives ANDRITZ Gouda offers special knife sharpeners.
