Re-Circulating Air Sludge Dryer

The modular nature of the Gryphon dryer enables us to “bolt” modules together to form larger units. This enables us to price our technology into any sized operation without replicating massive dryer units. In addition, it enables us to manage and control our air stream. From an operations perspective, the Gryphon system is a closed-loop air system. The design reflects a means of reducing/eliminating odors and provides for efficiencies in heating, which in turn reduces operating expenses.

Compressed, heated air is injected into the sludge as the vacuum is applied to the underside of the sludge. The drying process occurs swiftly and the air is then pulled through filtration to remove any dust particles before going to a condenser. The cooled air is then passed back through chamber on its return to the blower unit. This enables the dryer to utilize any heat that was not absorbed by the sludge within the chamber. A final filtration occurs prior to the air entering the blower and the process then repeats.
