Ventilex feed dryer for animal feed or biomass industry
Recycling and energy recovery from biomass play an increasingly important role in both residual stream management and global energy supply. The Ventilex Fluid Bed dryer enables residual streams to be upgraded for reuse in the food chain. For example, we process potato residue into animal feed and soy protein into fish feed. We also upgrade grain slurries from breweries to DDGS. Due to its high protein content, it can be processed into cattle feed.
Ventilex is also deployed frequently for direct applications, such as the fluid bed drying of fish or animal cattle granules.
High humidity and variation in particle size are no problem for Ventilex
Within the animal feed sector, product streams typically differ greatly in particle size and tend to have high moisture content. The Ventilex Fluid Bed guarantees high vapor extraction at low temperatures and minor energy use.
Due to its unique propulsion, we can build very large fluidized beds. Moreover, by using product recirculation and blending, we can also treat liquid products. Please note that the Ventilex solution is corrosion-resistant.
Naturally, the removal of odors is also important. Ventilex engineers achieve this by using a closed system, air recirculation, a biobed, and thermal post-combustion.
