Heated Cob Meal Dryer

FGD Series Heated Cob Meal Parts Dryers, 4-28 Cubic Foot Models

Machine Design

  • Bel Air's Conduction Heated Cob Dryer have wide U-shaped process channels constructed of heavy steel. It is mounted on a rigid, round base and suspended with heavy-duty springs. An internal separation system allows for the easy separation of parts from the media.
  • Wipes parts clean as it dries, eliminating spots and stains, normal process times in minutes.
  • The conduction heating system produces constant and even heat. There is no possibility of fire or burns to the operator. No worrying about hot spots from ceramic heaters, or extreme localized heat requiring a cooldown after the process is finished.
  • Lubrication System: A low-pressure oil pump is provided which provides lubrication to the main shaft bearings. A dual pressure switch system monitors the oil pump.

Standard Features

  • Parts Load Chute: Parts loading is accomplished by use of a built-in loading chute, located under the separating screen deck. The chute has a UHMW polyethylene liner on the bottom.
  • Heating System: The machine is heated with a Conduction Fluid heater, which heats a fluid that is circulated in a sealed layer on the bottom of the finishing chamber. This innovative system eliminates the exposed ceramic heaters of the past that can burn the operator, and all combustible materials (cob dust) to come in contact with an ignition source.
  • Electrical Controls: Standard equipment includes: an ON/OFF vibratory control enclosure, 115-volt control circuit, and overload motor protection. Available in either 230/3/60 or 460/3/60. Available as optional equipment: Digital Process Timer, IEC free standing pedestal mounted control enclosure or NEMA free standing pedestal mounted control enclosure.

Optional Equipment

  • Bypass Gate: To facilitate batch processing, a gate can be installed to divert the mass around the machine for multiple pass drying.
  • Sound/Dust Cover Hood: A soft EARSAVER suspended cover is furnished. We also offer a cover crane to suspend the cover, for applications without a crane, the customer must provide a structure to suspend the cover.
  • Dust Collection System: A 100 CFM, 30 bag dust collector is integrated with the sound enclosure hood. Electrical controls are integrated into the dryer control panel. Requires purchase of a hood.
