Several different types of Dorset Dryers are available
The choice depends on the desired capacity and the material that needs to be dried.
The choice depends on the desired capacity and the material that needs to be dried. After careful consultation, a decision is made on what type and design of Dorset Dryer suits the customer. Depending on the circumstances, this will result in either a customized dryer or a standard unit.
Benefits of the Dorset dryer
Low energy consumption
Highly compact and flexible
Requires little maintenance
Fully automatic operation without supervision is possible
Through the remixing function, a pre- treatment of the digestate is not necessary
Low dust generation through low air speed
What variables to consider?
Relevant variables that are possible in the design of the dryer include (among others):
- Remixing capacity, separation, or a combination of both
- Multiple layer drying or single layer drying
- Container placement (outdoors) or placement in the production hall (indoors)
- Transport conveyors or jack screws

plate belt dryers
Our dryers are belt dryers that use a belt made of metal plates
The Dorset drying system uses plate belts. These belts consist of perforated steel plates that are linked to one another. The steel plates are pulled around by a roller chain.
Dispensing the digestate starts on the top layer, after which the product is transported through the dryer via the plate-belt. During this process, warm air is pulled through the plates and product. The plates have been galvanized and powder-coated, in order to provide sufficient protection against aggressive substances.
Because the belt is made of steel plates, it can carry a high layer of product on top. A high layer of product is important for drying efficiency. If the system is operated properly, the steel plates will not require cleaning.
We continue to develop our dryers so as to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness.
