Our company has developed the special drying equipment for coconut coir, coconut fiber drying production lines, which can be directly connected with the coconut shell opening and sorting machines. Coconut bran sorting, desalination, dehydration, drying, and the coconut fiber drying process can be finished within 40 minutes. Pipeline operation, labor saving, energy saving and environmental protection, the coconut coconut coir and fiber quality can be guaranteed to the maximum extent, after high temperature treatment, the coconut fiber and coir is more clean and environmental protection. This production line is the essential equipment of mechanization, scale and intensive production of coconut coir and fiber.
Coconpeat process: after desalination and dehydration, the 50-60％ moisture cocopeat will be fed into the dryer and achieve flow drying, Cocopeat will be continually raised and dropped by the shovelling plates inside the dryer, spirally forward, through the inner, middle and outer three layers of dryer, the cocopeat and hot air will heat exchange, the dry cocopeat will be quickly moved and discharged by the wind, the wet cocopeat can't move quickly because of itself weight. The cocopeat will be fully dried inside the dryer, and the moisture will be reduced to 14-18%( can be adjusted according to customers’ requirement), when finished the drying process, the cocopeat will be discharged by screw conveyor. There is special device inside the dryer, it can prevent uneven drying effect of the cocopeat.
Hot air process: we configure the high efficiency energy-saving hot air furnace for our dryer, the fuel can be natural gas, diesel, coal, wood, straw, rice husk, etc. It will supply the 500-650℃ Oxygen poor hot air, after precipitation and ash removal, it will go into the dryer, then will evaporate water and dry the coconut coir, when discharge from the dryer, the hot air temperature will reduce to 50-65℃. The wet and contain dust exhaust gas will through the professional dust collector, then can reach the discharge standard.
Characteristic of coconut coir dryer
1. Specific design and manufacture for silk fiber materials. Unique structure, low energy consumption and high thermal efficiency.
2. Safe heat exchanging mode. The dried silk fibers keep same color, strength and flexibility.
3. Frequency conversion control & automatic temperature control. Flexible set of operating parameters based on the required drying effect.
4. Unique residue cleaning system. The wrapped residue in silk fiber is cleaned in the drying process.
5. Modular design and manufacture, solid structure, easy installation, low maintenance costs and long service life.
6. As a whole production line, the dryer can be used together with palm fiber extraction machine, and screening machine.
