Application

The final, still wet pigment cake is heated on a belt dryer. At the end of the belt dryer, the dried coarse pigment powder is discharged into a silo ready for final milling and grinding into a fine powder. The feed through the belt dryer is controlled both by the flow through the chute and level in the silo.
