The dry bottom ash solution DRYCON Compact is designed for coal-fired boilers as well as for biomass and waste to energy plants. DRYCON Compact is based on the proven DRYCON technology, but - with regards to the requirements of the stated industries – with a more concise design, thus a lower investment.DRYCONTM - a pan belt conveyor - is used to convey and cool the bottom ash by means of ambient air. The pan belt conveyor is designed for operation under difficult conditions, like extreme temperatures and strongly fluctuating quantities of bottom ash. Due to impact beams below the pan belt elements and special damping mechanisms, DRYCONTM can cope with large quantities of slag suddenly landing from a great height without suffering lasting deformation. DRYCON™ can be retrofitted into existing facilities where space is at a premium.
