Superheated Steam Processor (SSP

By: Gea Barr-rosin  09-12-2011

The Superheated Steam Processor (SSP™) is a closed loop pneumatic conveying system. The solids are fed into the flow of pressurised superheated transport steam by means of a pressure tight rotary valve, plug screw or similar. The Superheated Steam Processor (SSP™) can be used for drying and/or heat treatment of many products.

Rotary Dryer / Rotary Cooler

In the indirect dryer, which is more suited to fine and dusty materials, there is little or no contact between the product and the drying gases since they are heated from the outside, via a stationary jacket fitted with either multiple burners or other external heat source. The directly heated rotary dryer operates on the principle of lifting and showering the product through a hot gas stream moving either in parallel or counter-flow.


Products - Fluid Bed Dryer

The process air is supplied to the bed through a special perforated distributor plate and flows through the bed of solids at a velocity sufficient to support the weight of particles in a fluidized state. Very high heat and mass transfer values are obtained as a result of the intimate contact with the solids and the differential velocities between individual particles and the fluidizing gas.


Ring Dryer

For slurries, pastes, or sticky materials, our specifically designed feed system allows backmixing of the wet feed with a portion of dry product to produce a suitable conditioned material for feeding into the dryer. This selective extension of residence time enables the Ring Dryer to process many materials which were traditionally regarded as difficult to dry in a Flash Dryer.


Flash Dryer - Pneumatic Drying System

Elevated drying temperatures can be used with many products since the flashing off of surface moisture instantly cools the drying gas without appreciably increasing the product temperature. For slurries, pastes, or sticky materials, backmixing of the wet feed with a portion of dry product to produce a suitable conditioned material is required.



GEA Barr-Rosin supplies industrial drying systems and offers numerous systems and technologies to dry wet materials, ranging from granules, cakes, and powders to sludges, slurries, and solutions. Our systems are custom designed to meet the customer's exact requirements.
