Turn Key Sand Drying Solutions

If you’re hunting for a cost effective and efficient solution to process mineral or sand from wet feed
to dry graded product, your search is over. iBulk Solutions, one of Australia’s leading innovators in
the Fine Particle Separation and Processing Equipment industry, has invested heavily in the design
and development of a new system that speeds up through-put times, thereby reducing the cost per
tonne.

“Our team of talented engineer’s have combined our proprietary technology with vibrating process
equipment, conveyors, iBulk /Carrier Dryers and Rotex Gyratory Screeners to develop a turnkey
plant that can be installed for 10-15 tph of sand that can be dried from 10-12% down to whatever
you require,” explained Tony Webber, managing director, iBulk Solutions.

Not only is iBulk’s solution extremely compact, they have actually gone so far as to make these
plants transportable, as they only require the electrical and gas services to be connected on site.

“Vibrating fluid bed drying is the world’s leading technology for sand drying,” said Tony. “In fact,
the National Industrial Sand Association recently documented the efficiency comparisons between
vibrating fluid beds and rotary drum dryers and the difference is remarkable.”

The results showed that plants using vibrating fluid bed drying technology could expect operational
savings on fuel alone to be as high as 30% per annum when compared with rotary drum dryers.

Tony then went on to explain that additional savings are available as annual maintenance costs for
vibrating fluid bed drying are minimal.

“In addition to these advantages, utilising vibrating fluid bed drying technology can also assist
companies’ to combat future Carbon Taxation requirements,” said Tony. “In conjunction with
Carrier, we have developed dryers for coal drying and processing that removes excess moisture from
bituminous coal before it is used in boilers and similar applications.

“Additional saving on emissions can be achieved by the ability of our drying systems to recycle hot
air therefore reducing the amount of combustion required to achieve the drying requirement,” he
added.
