A hybrid dryer is a flexible combination of the systems of an adsorption dryer and condensation dryer. Adsorption dryers are mostly used at low temperatures. A hybrid dryer first condenses the air before adsorbing the moisture from the air.
A hybrid dryer dries the process air in two stages. First, the hybrid dryer ensures that the moist process air is cooled to below the dew point. The cooling system causes the moisture to be condensed on the cold fins of the evaporator. In the second stage, the cooled dry air travels to the rotor where it can release even more moisture. The energy used for cooling and condensing is used to regenerate the rotor. In this way, very energy-efficient drying can be performed at a low regeneration temperature.
A hybrid dryer can be used excellently especially in processes where the drying temperature is bound to a maximum. A maximum drying temperature is often used to ensure product quality. The cooling system has more residual heat than just the condenser heat. This heat can be put to good use in your factory. Our hybrid dryers are optimized to minimize energy consumption.
A major advantage of a hybrid dryer is the subsidy possibilities for the heat pump technology that the hybrid dryer uses. Reinders Industrial can guide you in applying for this subsidy.
Hybrid dryers from Reinders Industrial are designed in-house according to your specific situation. We have the knowledge to examine your drying process or production process on efficiency, process parameters, energy consumption, product quality and yield. Because we continually invest in research and development, we are able to realize the most energy-efficient system possible with lower consumption costs and faster payback times compared to conventional techniques. One of our spearheads is the realization of ‘turn-key’ projects. We can take care of the complete project planning for you: from research and design to installation and maintenance.
