EcoWave Introduces 1000 Series Dryer

The 1000 Series biosolids drying unit from EcoWave is designed to produce a Class A product using a microwave/near-infrared process that is energy efficient and highly scalable. It produces little to no odor, has low operation and maintenance costs and minimizes emissions of secondary pollutants such as dust, CO, CO2, NOx and SOx. A 50-wet-ton-per-day machine has less than a 900 square-foot total recommended install area.

 

The technology combines the heating characteristics of microwave and near-infrared rays. The action of microwaves generating heat inside and the near-infrared rays heating the surface enhances heating and drying. The electric drying technology uses an agitator-equipped screw conveyor that agitates the material being moved in the dryer in order to apply heating evenly, for a uniformly dried product. EcoWave has fully functioning pilot unit mounted to a truck available for demonstrations. 321/217-3181; www.ecowaveusa.com.
