Screw Heat Exchanger Keeping Itself Clean

09/11/2015 - For many industries that produce, process, or handle bulk solids, the screw heat exchanger is a well-known piece of equipment for heating, drying and cooling. With the same working principle as a conventional screw conveyor, however, most screw heat exchangers rely on the flowability of the bulk solid for good mixing and to keep their heat transfer surfaces clean. As a result, these standard screw heat exchangers cannot be used for sticky, pasty or adhesive materials or slurries. read...
