Cut product loss with this dust-recovery hood
The new dust-recovery hood from this company is intended for vibrating fluidized-bed dryers and coolers, and features a proprietary design that allows on-specification particles that are entrained in the airstream to be captured and gently returned to the process for recovery as finished product. Engineered with an expanding, tapered profile that reduces the airflow velocity as the process air rises, the dust-recovery hood cuts the volume of product lost as waste while also boosting the ratio of finished products at discharge per unit of input, and support dust-control efforts. Undersized fine particles entrained in the airstream that need not be recovered for recycling can be captured in a dust collector. The unit is designed for drying foods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, aggregates, plastics, wood products and others. — The Witte Co., Inc., Washington, N.J.
