Geelen Counterflow dryers stand out because of their superior energy efficiency when compared to any alternative dryer. Compared to the best horizontal dryers, we can guarantee an energy consumption that is typically at least 15% lower. When replacing older horizontal dryers, savings on energy can be up to 50%.
The use of gravity flow allows us to engineer dryers and coolers with a minimum of moving parts and without any wear parts. Nearly 30 years after they were first installed the first counterflow coolers are still running successfully. You probably already know about the lack of maintenance that is required for a counterflow cooler. A counterflow dryer is no different.
Moisture uniformity and control play an important role in the profitability of the any dryer operator. Geelen Counterflow dryers can achieve the same moisture uniformity as the best horizontal dryers. Improvements over older dryers lead to high savings in product and energy costs. Our patented control system with integrated microwave moisture sensor enables fully automatic moisture control, with burners responding quickly and accurately to changes in product recipe, extruder output, air temperature and air relative humidity.
The use of gravity for product transport ensures an uninterrupted product flow, leading to a large reduction in cleaning frequency and cleaning costs, whilst maintaining the highest possible standards of sanitation.
