Description

Fully automatic powerful seaweed drum drying equipment is accessible with distinct capacities and the drying system can be fully customized according to your needs.

The rotary drum dryer operates in a closed ring system based on the circulation of forced hot airflow. Part of this system is a rotating perforated breathable drum with algae feed-stock. The airflow temperature is maintained by an electric heater and fan built in the system. Moisture is removed from the system by a special condensing system in the form of liquids. The drying time and temperature are determined individually according to the kind of material, moisture level, and structure. Seaweed up to 5 meters are loaded into a drum and are gently dried by rotating the bag with the raw material and the flow of hot air.

In order not to lose the properties of the raw algae material, the drying temperature can be adjusted accordingly to the species of the algae. The raw material is removed from the dryer at the end of the set cycle.

With the help of the seaweed dryer, up to 90% of moisture can be removed from the raw algae material. Reducing the amount of heat energy consumed and the drying cycle time can be shortened by practicing primary dehumidification by mechanical means. A natural gas, bio-gas-based system, or liquid fuel system can be used as a heat source for the dryer.

Seaweed dryer uses heat exchange technology to provide a heat source instead of traditional energy. Its low power consumption, heat, and fast dehumidification characteristics greatly help reduce operating costs.
