Introduction of drum flaker

A drum flaker, also known as a drum dryer, is a type of industrial equipment used for solidifying or cooling molten materials into flakes. The process involves the application of a molten material onto the surface of a rotating drum, where it solidifies and is then scraped off in the form of thin flakes. This equipment is commonly used in industries where the production of flakes or solidified material is required for further processing or packaging. Here’s a basic overview of the working principle:

  1. Drum Rotation: The drum flaker consists of a rotating drum. The drum is typically cooled internally to facilitate the solidification process.
  2. Molten Material Application: The material in a molten or liquid state is fed onto the surface of the rotating drum. This can be achieved through various methods such as spraying, pouring, or other application techniques.
  3. Solidification: As the molten material comes into contact with the cooled drum surface, it starts to solidify. The rotation of the drum ensures that a thin layer of the material adheres to its surface.
  4. Flake Formation: A scraper or knife is used to scrape off the solidified material from the drum surface. This results in the formation of thin flakes.
  5. Collection: The flakes are collected and can be further processed, packaged, or used in various applications depending on the specific properties of the material.

Vacuum Drum Dryer  

Applications of drum flaker

  1. aterial Loading: Wet material is loaded onto the rotating drum of the Vacuum Drum Dryer.
  2. Vacuum Operation: The system creates a vacuum within the drum, lowering the pressure and boiling point for enhanced moisture removal.
  3. Heating: Heat is applied to the drum, and the vacuum facilitates the efficient transfer of heat to the material for evaporation.
  4. Continuous Rotation: The drum continuously rotates, exposing the entire surface of the material to the vacuum and heat for uniform drying.
  5. Moisture Evacuation: Evaporated moisture is promptly removed due to the vacuum, preventing reabsorption and ensuring thorough drying.

Advantages of drum flaker

Drum flakers are commonly used in the chemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries for processing materials such as chemicals, polymers, resins, and food products. The flakes produced by the drum flaker have advantages in terms of handling, transportation, and storage compared to the original molten material
