Reduce energy consumption by biomass dryers and cook reactors, e.g., acid hydrolysis cellulosic cooking, both first- and second-stage hydrolysis vessels and acid reconcentrator towers.
- Dryer shells and internal agitators constructed with highly efficient PLATECOIL® Prime Surface Heat Exchanger panels.
- Vessels constructed with PLATECOIL Prime Surface Heat Exchanger jackets.
- In both cases, more efficient heat transfer to the biomass or to the cook.
- Reduced steam consumption.
- More even heating.
- Prevention of scorching or overcooking.
