1 Feed Hopper
No two materials are made of the same consistency. Material handling equipment can be selected based on the consistency of the material, the necessary arrangement of the feed equipment, and the end use of the product. More InfoVulcan® Systems provides many options for any material being processed, whether equipment such as bar screens (seen in photo) are needed, or whether a material is clumpy, lumpy, or sticky.
2 Feed Conveyor
After passing through the feed hopper, materials are transported up a feed conveyor, prior to being dried in the rotary drum. More InfoVulcan® Systems utilizes Tuffman® Conveyors in order to provide state-of-the-art material handling for each system manufactured within our facility.
3 Rotary Drum Dryer
The work horse of Vulcan® Systems Rotary Dryers is the heavy duty, direct fired, rotary drum dryer. More InfoThe dryer is extremely energy efficient and can be configured to utilize a variety of fuels or waste heat to perform the drying process. The dryer can be configured with either a parallel or counter-current gas flow, heating the material at different times during the process. For materials such as animal manure, our blending, dosing, and recirculation system can be added, producing a high value fertilizer pellet. All systems are available as stationary plants or can be built on a mobile platform.
4 Material Discharge
On discharge, all processed material is sent to the client mandated location for re-purposing, and if appropriate, re-sale. More InfoHowever, Vulcan® Systems Rotary Dryers do not stop there. This system ensures that all particulate matter is removed in a safe and secure fashion, through the Air Pollution Control System.
Processing some materials is not without an odor. Fortunately, the included Vulcan® Air Pollution Control (APC) equipment removes particulate and abates the stink. More InfoAdditionally, for clients processing manure with high levels of ammonia, our multistage condensing and dosing systems ensure that the stink is limited to the sweet smells of success.
6 Venturi Scrubber
After particulate and vapors are passed through the system, the Vulcan® Venturi Scrubber provides a secondary precaution to help remove ammonia and particulate matter from vapors. More InfoVulcan® Systems takes environmental control and regulations very seriously, seen through our use of Venturi Scrubber technology in all of our manure drying systems.
