Takraf USA’s Philadelphia office recently designed and supplied a Roto-Louvre Dryer to process sodium metabisulfite material for an important client in Texas.
This is the first dryer unit that is designed and supplied under the Takraf brand name, following the acquisition of FMC Technologies’ Material Handling Systems division by Takraf at the end of 2016, which brought with it more than 75 years of experience in the field of rotary dryers and coolers.
The Roto-Louvre is claimed to be a specialised, compact and versatile vessel that facilitates the gentle and efficient processing of bulk material, as well as boasting low machine maintenance requirements.
According to Takraf, a Roto-Louvre Dryer is the best option to pursue when uniform drying is an important requirement. The new Roto-Louvre Dryer, along with all the ancillary equipment, arrived at the jobsite in January of 2018. During the month of February, the customer self-performed the installation and commissioning of the unit with technical support from Takraf USA.
The company said that the installation process went smoothly without any major issues or delays. “Currently, the dryer has been operational for nearly three months and the customer is extremely satisfied,” stated Takraf. “Recently, the customer reached out to us to personally thank us for our support throughout the project especially during installation and start-up.”
Tom Gramling, president of Takraf USA, commented: “The trademarked Roto-Louvre brand now belongs exclusively to Takraf. We believe this recent dryer award is the first of many for the Dryers and Coolers segment of our business, and we are excited to include and boast this new product line under the Takraf brand.”
