The air disperser (4) for a spray drying apparatus has an air inlet (81) leading to a space (45) defined within an inner radius and an outer radius in which a set of guide vanes (7) is positioned. A top, a bottom and an outer circumferential wall are defined, and an air outlet (82) at the inner radius is adapted to be positioned above a feed outlet from atomizing means. Each guide vane (7) has a pre-defined length in the radial direction. At least the bottom and outer wall of said space (45) are provided by a base module (5). The top is provided by a top plate (6) and the set of guide vanes (7) is releasably secured to a fixating device (10, 11) to form a framework, and the framework is secured relative to the base module (5) in the axial direction by the top plate (6).


In the air disperser (4) having a number of components including a top, a boom and an outer circumferential wall forming a space (45) defined within an inner radius and an outer radius and having an air inlet (81), a set of guide vanes (7), and an air outlet (82) at said inner radius adapted to be positioned above a feed outlet from atomizing means, at least some of said components are formed by precision metal forming such as metal spinning.

Patent
The Babcock & Wilcox Company and GEA Process Engineering Inc. | Date: 2015-05-21

The present invention relates generally to the field of emission control equipment for boilers, heaters, kilns, or other flue gas-, or combustion gas-, generating devices (e.g., those located at power plants, processing plants, etc.) and, in particular to a new and useful method and apparatus for reducing and/or eliminating various liquid discharges from one or more emission control equipment devices (e.g., one or more wet flue gas desulfurization (WFGD) units). In another embodiment, the method and apparatus of the present invention is designed to reduce and/or eliminate the amount of liquid waste that is discharged from a WFGD unit by subjecting the WFGD liquid waste to one or more drying processes, one or more spray dryer (or spray dry) absorber processes, and/or one or more spray dryer (or spray dry) evaporation processes.

Disclosed herein is a process for production of an instant coffee product in a high yield, comprising the steps of extracting roast and ground coffee beans with water having a temperature of 80C or less, to produce a first extract and spent coffee grounds, adding water to the spent coffee grounds to produce an aqueous suspension, hydrolysing the aqueous suspension using a hydrolysing enzyme to produce a second extract and spent remains, adding the first extract to the second extract, optionally after concentration and/or drying of the second extract, to obtain a combined extract, and drying the combined extract to obtain an instant coffee product. The high yield is obtained due to the reduction of enzyme inhibiting substances.

The closure element (201) is adapted to be installed in a vessel wall provided with an aperture and has a peripheral flange (202, 222) and a central cover unit (203). The closure element (201) is provided with at least one light source (241) within a predefined zone (235) located in the central cover unit (203) and the light source is confined within the central cover unit.


The rotary atomizer is intended for a spray drying apparatus and comprises a feed supply pipe (104), a drive motor (102), a drive shaft (107), one or more bearings (111, 112, 113) supporting or guiding the drive shaft, and an atomizer wheel (106). At least one of the bearing or bearings (111, 112, 113) is a foil bearing. An additional supply device (114) for air or gas may be provided to be connected to the at least one foil bearing (111,112). Furthermore, the additional supply device (114) may be connected to further opening into a position nearby the atomizer wheel (106) by means of a branch connection (115).
