Taking drying to a new level
The HiDri range of commercial dryers represents considerable innovation in drying technology. Rather than using fixed-floor systems that can create hot-spots, or belt-fed systems that have limited efficiency, the HiDri system uses patented designs to greatly reduce the physical footprint of the system and increase efficiency, whilst offering very detailed levels of control.
The HiDri range offers continuous drying of a vast range of materials, from organics to plastics to RDF. What is more, the same unit can be programmed to deal with different material streams in succession, making this one of the most flexible concepts on the market.
The dryer comprises a walking (or moving floor) of multiple parallel plates moving in a pre-programmed sequence. This creates interference between material on one bar, and material on the neighbouring bar, meaning the material is constantly, and gently, mixed.
The moving floor is made from patented perforated plates which allow the warm air to be pushed evenly through the entire system.
The unit can be adapted to the material to be dried by screening it through a metering drum with adjustable height to set an appropriate depth for the material. The metering drum also ensures an even depth across the full width of the product layer.
We monitor multiple factors throughout the process including moisture content, air temperature, relative humidity, and air flow rates on each level of the multi-stage dryer.
How it can help you
High for a reason:
Each stage of the drying process sits above the next, creating a layered or staged system. With up to 6 levels, this provides up to 63m2 of drying surface in a unit only 6m long. Where space is limited, or you would rather use floor area for something else, HiDri is your best option. Each level of the dryer is served by a different input plenum and exhaust, so that each level receives its own dry input air with maximum moisture carrying capacity.
Every stage of the HiDri has dedicated control of air flow rate and temperature, allowing higher efficiencies, lower costs, and faster drying times than conventional dryers.
Maintenance is only required around once or twice per month for an hour each time. The system can be simply cleaned by adding wood chips to run through the system between different materials.
Of course, we realise that the dryer will not operate in isolation, and we offer matched equipment to sort and separate the material including bag separators, bag openers, refuse sorters and bale breakers for both paper/cardboards and plastic waste.
Due to the patented floor perforations and plate system, many different types of material can be dried in the same HiDri unit, allowing you to diversify your business model if necessary. Even unconventional materials such as manure and slurry can be treated within the system.
Maintenance and Monitoring
- The HiDri is easily maintained with a recommended quarterly maintenance visit.
- Includes a 2 year warranty.
- Emergency parts included with machine and more can be provided through Prescient Power.
- The HiDri also Includes a continuing monitoring as standard to ensure that the system remains at optimum efficiency.
Where We Operate
Based in Leicestershire, we normally operate in the East Midlands and West Midlands, including Leicestershire, Rutland, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Birmingham, Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. However we have had many requests from further afield and have still been competitive.
Contact us to find out how we could help you save money on your energy.
Whilst we can (and do) conduct biomass maintenance anywhere in the UK, we mainly operate in nine counties of the Midlands region – Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, West Midlands, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire. We offer rapid response and out-of hours call-outs, but will of course try and minimise cost by first diagnosing the problem over the phone or internet (if you biomass boiler is web-connected).
