Steam Tube Rotary Dryer – Ethanol Processing
Why we were called:
A new ethanol plant was built in Iowa. PBMSC was contracted to provide new lubrication systems and provide open-gear lubricant for eight rotary steam tube dryers.
How we helped:
Single lubrication systems were provided for each dryer. Solid film lubricant was used to lubricate the gears.
Lubricant consumption averages 250 lbs. per dryer per year. Gears are showing insignificant wear after nearly eight years in operation.
