Heyl & Patterson White Paper: Dryer Maintenance Recordkeeping

Posted by H&P Blog on Wed, Jun 13, 2012 @ 11:18 AM

The increasing sophistication and cost of dryers used for bulk solids handling operations make rotary dryer maintenance very complex, which can affect your operation's profit.  Haphazard recordkeeping can hinder any industrial dryer maintenance program, which can eventually impair the dryer's operating efficiency and even reduce production.  To make maintenance for a process dryer more effective, establish and maintain a record of all information concerning your dryer's operation and maintenance.

Heyl & Patterson White Paper: Torrefaction of Wood Biomass

Posted by H&P Blog on Wed, Oct 26, 2011 @ 11:04 AM

Torrefaction is the thermochemical process in which the moisture content of wood biomass is reduced while its energy density is increased, transforming it into a charred material resembling charcoal.  Torrefaction can reduce the mass of the wood by up to 30%, resulting in a denser, higher-valued material that can be transported more economically than wood chips.  This energy-dense end product can be used as a replacement for coal or co-fired with coal in electric power plants.
