Petkus Belt Dryer
The Petkus Belt Dryer unites drying effectiveness with quality results. An ingenious air flow solution allows for highly efficient, yet gentle drying. The integrated belt cleaner reduces manual labour and eliminates cross-contamination with materials such as chemical residues.
The Petkus Belt Dryer was developed to gently and flexibly dry seed after chemical treatment. During the coating process large amounts of liquid are sometimes sprayed leading to moisture pick-ups of up to five percent.
Warm air is fed from the side through two hot air channels by two separate fans allowing air to flow through the product homogeneously from below. The temperature can be individually regulated. Four temperature sensors allow for optimal monitoring and control of the drying process thus preventing product from overheating and preserving germination capacity/vigour.
