Vibrating fluid bed dryers and coolers are available with an optional air conditioning system, from process equipment manufacturer The Witte Company. Moisture is removed from the inlet air to maintain processing conditions in facilities with humid ambient air or in facilities affected by seasonal changes to the humidity of ambient air. Combining a chilled water coil and heating coil, the Witte air supply system cools the inlet air to the cooling zone and condenses the moisture then heats the dehumidified air to the desired temperature.
The Witte conditioning system is ideal for processing sugar, salt, fertiliser, paper, cocoa, agglomerated coffee, powdered milk and long-chain polymers such as nylon, polycarbonate, acrylic, PET and ABS, among other products.
It was developed for drying and cooling hygroscopic products, which absorb moisture from the air and tend to cake, clump and become sticky in humid conditions.
The conditioning system is available custom-engineered and for retrofit on Witte drying and cooling systems in the field.
