Industrial fans for dryer applications
Halifax Fan can meet the needs of every dryer application.
Dryers basically use dry air to remove moisture from a product, either as a batch or continuous flow process.
The web-based process employed in the manufacture of paper, board and wallboard require the continuous high speed flow of heated air over the product to reduce its moisture content. Both ID and FD fans can be employed to control the humidity and temperature in rotary drum and spray dryers. Bi-directional fans reverse airflow in curing rooms where a longer drying cycle is required to process the entire contents of the space.
Batch drying of smaller quantities may need simple recirculation fans to pass heated air through the drying pans. On all of these applications efficiency is an important consideration along with the selection of the right material to ensure long-term reliability.
