Latest development in steam drying of beet pulp* [Full subscriber]

Abstract One of the most effective ways of reducing energy consumption in beet sugar factories with drum-drying of pulp is to introduce steam drying. This does not require changes in the boiler house, but the power production will be affected negatively. This can though be partly compensated by an economizer built into the steam dryer. With reference to case studies of installations of EnerDry’s steam dryers in factories in Europe and Japan, this paper highlights, in particular, reduction in total energy consumption by one third. Further, the installation of EnerDry’s steam dryer also prevents the loss of beet pulp dry…
