  1. A Computational Tool for Design and Operation of Coolers/Dryers for Feed Pellets

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cooling and drying of feed pellets are the most important operations in the feed manufacturing industry. These operations are carried out simultaneously, in a single machine, by passing ambient air through a moving bed of pellets. However, simultaneous control of both these processes is very difficult. Overdrying of pellets is a common problem that costs several million dollars to feed processi ...
