Many solid materials can exhibit self-heating, which — if unchecked — can progress to a fire or even explosion. And even if the situation does not get that far, it is likely to affect the output of the process, in terms of product quality degradation, for example. Recognizing that your product in powder or granular form can self-heat is the first step in controlling the risks associated with...

The Planex System is a patented, horizontal paddle vacuum dryer developed for vacuum drying of wet powders obtained from a centrifuge or filter press. The system consists of a fixed cylindrical chamber with an eccentric agitator inside with two independent movements: it can rotate on its own axis and tangentially to the cylindrical chamber as well. This combined double...

Due to their simplicity of construction, lack of moving parts, ability to operate at a wide range of temperatures and pressures, low capital and operating cost, cyclones have been the workhorse for gas-solid separation in a wide variety of industries. If properly designed and installed, cyclones can be used to control particulate emissions as low as 5 microns in size, and sometimes to smaller sizes in...

[Originally published in the May 1995 issue of Chemical Engineering] Cyclone dust collectors have been used - and misused - all over the world for more than 100 years. One reason for the misuse is a common perception among users that all cyclones are ``created equal'' - that is, as long as a cyclone resembles a cylinder with an attached cone, it will do its job. However, to maximize separation efficiency...
