Technical features of mesh belt dryer

The belt dryer machine is mainly composed of a box, mesh belt, transmission device, feeding and distributing equipment, air inlet duct, moisture discharge duct, fan, heat source equipment, conveying equipment, control cabinet, etc.

  • Durable mesh belt material:
    Imported PET woven mesh belt is used, which has high transportation and ventilation efficiency, and the drying efficiency is increased by more than 25%. The dried materials will never be damaged or deformed.
  • Circulating hot air:
    The drying hot air in the drying section adopts left and right directions and up and down convection circulation. Therefore, the material particles are dried evenly up and down, left and right, and the moisture error rate is within 2%. The dry hot air is recycled and utilized to greatly improve the heat exchange efficiency and save a lot of steam energy.
  • Precisely control the moisture content of the material:
    The drying time is adjusted steplessly by frequency conversion, making it easy to control the moisture content of the product to within the standard range. The distributor adopts a swing distributor, which ensures uniform distribution and good moisture uniformity.
  • Strong heat exchange function:
    The mesh belt dryer heat exchanger is equipped with a high-efficiency drain valve to effectively remove air and condensed water in the steam pipe. After the steam pipe (air, condensed water) is removed, the heat exchange function can be improved by 10%.
  • Automatic temperature control system:
    According to user needs, an automatic temperature control device is optional. The drying temperature control adopts a microcomputer PID automatic temperature control system, combined with a proportional pneumatic control valve, and the temperature control is accurate with a plus or minus error of within 3°C.
    After the temperature is set, the steam volume is automatically adjusted to effectively stabilize the moisture content of the finished product and reduce unnecessary steam waste during the production process.

In order to obtain the best drying effect and appropriate output from mesh belt dryer, the moisture content of the material, the linear speed of the mesh belt, the air volume and the air temperature must be appropriately, reasonably and organically combined.

RICHI’s balanced dehydration concept is to effectively control the dehydration rate and improve the quality of the dried materials through appropriate temperature and humidity control during the different stages of material drying and dehydration.

Advantages of belt dryer machine

The mesh belt dryer is a common automatic drying equipment. Compared with traditional sun drying and other automatic drying, the mesh belt dryer adopts a multi-layer mesh belt structure.

Not only does it have a large drying area, but it can also be used for drying while feeding and discharging materials to achieve large-volume continuous drying production. It has high production efficiency and is very suitable for manufacturers and growers who dry large quantities of materials.

  • Customizable: The box length of the belt conveyor dryer machine is composed of standard sections. In order to save space, the dryer can be made into a multi-layer type. Common ones include double-layer, three-layer, five-layer, and six-layer. Length 6-40m, effective width 0.6-3.0m.
  • Wide applicability: Suitable for large-volume continuous production, processing and rapid drying of various feed pellets, grains, foods, flowers, fruit slices, stem root slices, agricultural and sideline product slices, medicinal slices, and industrial products. Universal.
  • Low energy consumption, unique structure, high thermal energy utilization, energy saving and environmental protection.
  • Circulation drying process, small moisture difference in finished granules, long drying time, large output, and good drying effect.
  • Horizontal layout, simple structure and convenient operation.
  • Variable frequency motor controls the speed, and the drying quality can be flexibly adjusted.

Working principle of mesh belt dryer

The continuous conveyor dryer is a batch and continuous production drying equipment. The main heating methods include steam heating and heat pump hot air heating.

The main principle of the industrial belt dryer is to spread the materials evenly on the mesh belt. The mesh belt is made of 12-60 mesh PET woven mesh belt, which is driven by the transmission device to move back and forth in the dryer. The hot air flows between the materials. Then, the water vapor is forced to be dehumidified and discharged through the dehumidification fan, thereby achieving the purpose of hot air drying.

The drying process of materials is generally divided into two stages, the constant speed stage and the speed reduction stage.

  • In the constant-speed drying section, the speed at which moisture inside the material diffuses to the surface can keep the surface of the material fully moist, that is, the moisture content on the surface is greater than the maximum moisture absorption capacity of the drying medium, so the drying speed depends on the surface vaporization speed.
  • The moisture in the deceleration stage is vaporized inside the material, and then diffuses to the surface in the form of steam. Therefore, the drying rate in the deceleration stage completely depends on the diffusion rate of moisture and steam inside the material. Therefore, the deceleration stage is also called the internal diffusion control stage.

Mesh belt dryer price

The mesh belt dryers currently on the market have different specifications and models, and the prices are also different. Therefore, when consulting the price of mesh belt dryers, you must first determine your own needs, and secondly, consider the heat source method and material of the equipment.

Only by clearly understanding your needs, required equipment configuration, etc., can we provide customers with corresponding equipment quotation information, or provide customers with dryer customization services.

In fact, there are many factors that affect the price of belt dryer machines. Generally, the size, material, heat source matching, equipment quality, production efficiency, after-sales service, manufacturer strength, etc. of the mesh belt dryer need to be considered.

  • Size of the continuous belt dryer: The larger the equipment, the greater the material drying output, and the more expensive the mesh belt dryer is;
  • Material style: Currently, polyurethane, color steel, baking paint, stainless steel, etc. can be used to produce continuous vacuum belt dryers. We can also choose according to our own production needs;
  • Heat source matching: There are many heat source methods for mesh belt dryers. They can use gas, steam, electricity, heat pump air energy, coal, firewood, biomass pellets, etc. Different heat source methods have different matching heat exchangers. Likewise, the cost of equipment will naturally vary.
  • Equipment quality: Mesh belt dryers made by different manufacturers are very different in terms of performance and production efficiency, so the equipment prices will naturally be somewhat different.
  • Manufacturer strength: Different belt dryer manufacturers have different strengths, and their technical levels are also very different. When we face mesh belt dryer manufacturers, generally large manufacturers have good equipment quality and strong manufacturer strength, but the equipment price will be a little more expensive. Equipment from small manufacturers is relatively cheap, so we still recommend that you choose drying equipment from large manufacturers so that you can have good protection.
  • After-sales service: This is still related to the strength of the mesh belt dryer manufacturer. The after-sales service of large manufacturers is generally relatively complete, and the market reputation is naturally good.

mesh belt dryer design

Here, RICHI will show you the principles and key elements of our engineer team’s design of mesh multi-layer belt dryers.

belt dryer manufacturers

As drying technology accounts for an increasing proportion in life and production, people have put forward higher requirements for drying functions. Aiming at the common problems of existing drying equipment such as low heat utilization efficiency, serious pollution, and large floor space.

Therefore, in response to these problems, RICHI MACHINERY’s engineering team designed a mesh drying equipment with relatively complete functions. A versatile drying equipment should be able to meet the requirements of small footprint and easy maintenance.

RICHI mesh belt dryer can fulfill the above basic requirements to the greatest extent possible under the prerequisite of drying large quantities of feed, food, snacks, nuts and agricultural products.

So, how is a belt dryer with such obvious advantages designed and manufactured?

  1. First of all, an excellent mesh belt dryer should have an efficient hot air circulation system.
    The design of the hot air circulation system directly affects the energy consumption and drying effect of the dryer. Through reasonable hot air circulation design, RICHI can make full use of the thermal energy of hot air, improve thermal energy utilization and reduce energy consumption. At the same time, good hot air circulation can also heat the materials evenly and improve the drying effect.
  2. Secondly, the structural design of the mesh dryer is also very important.
    RICHI mesh belt type multi-layer dryer usually consists of upper and lower multi-layer mesh belts. Materials enter from the upper mesh belt and go out from the lower mesh belt after passing through the drying area.
    Therefore, the design and layout of the mesh belts have been carefully considered. Properly designed mesh belts can ensure smooth transportation of materials and avoid problems such as blockage and material leakage. At the same time, appropriate mesh belt tension adjustment can also ensure the stable operation of materials.
  3. In addition, the temperature control of the continuous belt dryer is also a key element.
    The control of hot air temperature directly affects the drying speed and quality of materials. RICHI engineers have reasonably set up the hot air temperature control system to ensure that the hot air temperature fluctuates within an appropriate range to avoid adverse effects on materials caused by excessively high or low hot air temperatures.
    At the same time, the drying characteristics and needs of different materials should be taken into consideration and corresponding temperature adjustments should be made.
  4. In addition, the durability and ease of maintenance of the mesh belt dryer are also important considerations.
    RICHI engineers select high-quality materials and components for customers to ensure the stability and reliability of the dryer during long-term operation. In addition, the reasonable establishment of equipment maintenance facilities such as inspection openings and cleaning openings can facilitate daily maintenance and cleaning work and extend the service life of the equipment.
  5. Finally, the safety of the belt drying machine cannot be ignored.
    Reasonable safety protection facilities can prevent operators from accidents during operation. For example, RICHI engineers have installed overload protection devices, leakage protection devices, etc. to ensure the safety of the operation process. In addition, for flammable and explosive materials, corresponding fire prevention and explosion-proof measures should be taken to ensure the safety of the operating environment.
