FlowDrya FD60WS

FlowDrya FD60WS – Waste Series Drying Solutions

Economies of scale

High capacity waste to energy dryer – more tonnes processed, more m³ throughput. All leading to better economies of scale with improved saving and earning potential.

Modular, moveable construction means you can build up FD60WS units side-by-side to reach your target site scale. Still very space efficient and compact, transforming many tonnes of refuse each day into added value, high calorific fuel.

Extremely tough. Highly reliable.

Extremely tough, highly reliable Hardox 450 wear plate in the FD60WS dryer copes with varying waste fractions and aggressive environments, day after day.

In waste management facilities, input material can be unpredictable and threaten the reliability of your equipment. Hardox In My Body, coupled with a tough-built, monocoque chassis and a well proven Siemens PLC console combine together to build-in reliability.

With Zero to Landfill regulations driving a change towards increased recycling, you need robust, reliable and long life FlowDrya equipment.

    Zero to landfill

    Zero to landfill targets, coupled with residual heat sources (e.g. landfill gas CHP), are driving recognition of FlowDrya’s value. Waste is a valuable material for the production of alternative energy which for too long has been under-utilised, wastefully-disposed of in landfill.

    Fulfilling your Zero to Landfill targets while drying waste to energy enables practical, economic and environmental benefits.

    • Landfill diversion. Processing waste into SRF is cheap, sustainable and environmentally-friendly.
    • Reduction of imported fossil fuel costs and non-renewable fossil fuel usage.
    • Improved processing and fraction recovery rates from screening, tromelling and sorting.
    • Reduction of NOx and CO₂ emissions using substitute fuels instead of lignite or coal.
    • Reduction of transport costs by road, rail and sea.

    Waste to energy streams

    The FD60WS dryer is designed to operate with Construction & Demolition (C & D) waste; Commercial & Industrial fractions; Municipal Solid Waste; Waste to Energy RDF / SRF; Fines fractions; and even heavy, dense materials like incinerator bottom ash.

    Green heat sources provide the best mass balance outcomes, including residual heat from Landfill Gas Engines; Energy from Waste (EfW) plants; and Waste Wood Biomass Boilers. Coupling FD60WS with a residual heat source culminates in a high output of useful, dry fuel.

    FlowDrya WS is fully compatible for use with green energy schemes. We would be pleased to discuss your waste drying requirements while optimising waste heat for positive outcomes.
