Afterwards, large quantities or numbers of substances to be dried – viscous or solid – can be placed onto the cleaned robust PTFE conveyor belt again. This is due to the fact that EL-A uses either glass-fiber-reinforced or aramid-reinforced endless belts for processing that are extremely resistant and withstand temperatures of up to 250 °C.
The products pass through 2 to 8 drying chambers, which can all be heated separately, each equipped with two electric hotplates below the continuous belt. The plates are responsible for direct heat transfer to the product and – thanks to the division into three heating circuits – they allow a differentiated temperature control for an individual drying process according to customer requirements. If required, it is also possible to install additional infrared modules or a radiant heater above the product line. With this, the separately heatable chambers in combination with optional infrared modules ensure a homogeneous drying result – and thus faster process handling.
It is possible to laminate the robust belts; as a result, dirt particles cannot penetrate the material via micropores. Thus, apart from dyes and pigments also dry ceramic materials, abrasive metal pastes or waste sludge can be dried.
