JHD type drum yeast dryer is a single-cylinder dryer, can be used for drying of various kinds of slurry, especially for recovery of the waste yeasts in the brewhouse, dryers of different specifications can meet the production demand of brew houses at the scale of annual 30,000 tons to 100,000 tons of beer. This machine is also suitable for the drying treatment in food, chemical and medicine, etc.
The factors that influence the performance of the machine are as follow:
(1) Steam pressure(0.1-0.4Mpa)or the temperature of the heating medium
(2) Rotating speed (4～10r/min)
(3)The thickness of the film(that is the thickness of the material attaching to the surface of the dryer cylinder)
(4)The characteristic of the material(such as the content, fluid and temperature of the solid matter)
The dryer cylinder in contact with the material is made of high grade cast iron subject to ground finishing, with characteristics of anti-corrosion and free pollution. This machine adopts conductive heating, there’s no heat loss taken by the drying medium, so it is high heat utilization and low energy consumption, usually above 70%. It is also characterized by compact structure, less room taking and convenient cooperation and maintenance, etc.
Beer yeast is a typical top fermentation yeast commonly used in beer production. In addition to brewing beer, alcohol and other beverages, it can also ferment bread. The bacteria have high vitamin and protein content and can be used as edible, medicinal and feed yeast，most of the time we used the brewery yeast as the feed for animals.
