EPOC Dryer

In several industries (pulp industry – pulp dryer, paper industry: paper machine, wood-based materials industry – chip dryer, impregnation channels, wood industry, food industry) drying or dewatering represents an essential process step.

With the focus on emission reduction and the environmental goals following the EU taxonomy, the energy-intensive drying process is increasingly becoming the centre of attention. We have the corresponding process know-how in the industries mentioned. The experience from many implemented projects is already anchored in the pre-configured EPOC Dryer.

Different dryer designs are taken into account – drum dryers, belt dryers, entrained-flow dryers. We are thus in a position to quickly record the respective situation based on data and to put the EPOC Dryer into operation in compact implementations with short processing times.

The EPOC Dryer regulates process temperatures and product quality in advance with the given control variables. This includes the control of the heat source with the objectives of creating optimal combustion conditions for low-emission operation and ensuring an optimal drying process with smooth balancing of heat demand and heat availability.

With the EPOC Dryer you improve the energy efficiency of your plant, save fuel, reduce the CO2 footprint of your product, comply with emission limits and contribute substantially to continuous product quality thanks to uniformity (residual moisture).
