KENKI DRYER which can dry sticky and adhesive materials that no other dryer can is an innovative drying apparatus having unique technologies with 2 patents in Japan, 9 patens in 7 abroad countries, 11 patents in total. Please consider about KENKI DRYER as dryer for organic waste with high moisture content, sludge dryer, slurry dryer, dryer for digestive fluid from the methane fermentation and waste recycling dryer.
It has 11 patents in 8 countries which are Japan, Taiwan, the Unites States, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Swiss and Canada.
Since amount of saturated steam used as heat source of KENKI DRYER is small, there is no need for installing new boilers, and decarbonization and fuel cost reduction is possible by using redundant steam from the plants.
|About remote control with IoT|
By using remote control with IoT, operation of KENKI DRYER can be done without going to on-site while doing other tasks at factory office or at home.
IoT linked to AI makes it easy to control KENKI DRYER remotely even the operator is not a skilled worker.
Because the remote control, you can avoid contact with people and take measures against infectious diseases.
|the remote control with IoT|
There are three things that the IoT remote control can do.
1. Operation status check
2. Error notification
Operation status of KENKI DRYER is collected every second and drawn as graphs.
Graphs showing the change of temperature at each part, rotation speed of motors and electricity current are displayed.
These data are continuously collected and used to build AI model.
Also, data about amount and moisture content of fed material can be input and more accurate AI model can be built by using these data together.
The devices running the remote control are alarmed when the dryer is stopped abnormally and the devices show the reason of the error. Recovering instructions are also displayed and anyone can recover it.
Error information is also collected and used for building AI models.
The range of abnormality can be determined at PLC, and also at AI.
Simple and user-friendly touch panel displays are used and anyone can operate remotely.
Dryer starts unattended operation by clicking the operation start button.
While the dryer is running, no-one needs to be involved in the driving operations and can do other tasks.
When error occurred, alarm will be displayed and recovery can be done by following the instruction displayed together.
In case that the dryer needs to be stopped, it can be done by simple touch panel operation.
With IoT remote control of KENKI DRYER, measures against labor productivity improvement, the declining birthrate, labor shortage and infectious diseases can be taken.
Alignment of AI, IoT and PLC is very important.
Work environment with KENKI DRYER which uses low temperature drying is very good in safety and hygiene prospective.
Decarbonizing dryer KENKI DRYER
KENKI DRYER is an eco-friendly decarbonizing dryer which is safe and does not generate CO2.
KENKI DRYER has already started AI･IoT development.

|■ Product characteristics|
KENKI DRYER has three main characteristics. They are 1) Any materials can be dried as expected including sticky, adhesive and viscous materials and raw material slurry that no other company can deal with, 2) dried material can by recycled or utilized as raw materials because of its low-temperature drying method, and 3) there is no need to assign operator since its continuous operating system makes 24 hours unattended operation possible.
|■ Drying process|
The unique and original drying mechanism of KENKI DRYER is also International Patented Technology. Because 4 drying mechanisms which are crashing drying, agitation drying, circulation drying and indirect drying work simultaneously and add heat to material being dried repeatedly and continuously, inner part of the material is dried thoroughly and quality of discharged material after drying is stable. This series of drying mechanisms prevents agglomeration which causes insufficient drying from feeding process of the material into the dryer until discharging process after drying completed. Various ingenuities to conduct heat surely into inner part of the materials are exercised and stable heating and drying are proceeded continuously.
|■ Self-cleaning screw / Steam Heated Twin Screw Technology
（ SHTS technology ）
One of the International Patented Technology that KENKI DRYER has is a self-cleaning structure called Steam Heated Twin Screw technology (SHTS technology). No matter how materials are sticky, adhesive and viscous is, they can be dried without clogging inside of the dryer because of this unique structure that no other products has.
For example, even materials stuck to the blades of one screw, blades of the other screw in the dryer’s body forcibly peels the materials off as they rotate. Since the blades rotate by peeling the material off each other, any sticky, adhesive and viscous material does not adhere to the blade, and the blades continue rotating, peeling, agitating and heating material without stopping while they carries material further. Also, since surface of blades are always renewed and kept clean, heat near the blades is not blocked and it is conducted directly into the materials.
|■ Heat source, Saturated steam|
Even KENKI DRYER uses only saturated steam as its heat source, it is outstanding in safety and hygiene point of view with its unique drying mechanism based on combined use of conductive heat transfer method and heated air method. Since steam is a stable heat source, quality of discharged material after drying is also stable and equable. Maximum allowed steam pressure is 0.7Mpa and adjustment of steam pressure, adjustment of drying temperature in other words, can be easily done. Saturated steam is commonly used in many factories so that it can be said as a familiar and handy heat source. In comparison with drying methods using burner or hot blasts, saturated steam method is an indirect drying applying heat exchange via pipes that steam is passing through, therefore, it hardly burns the materials and is outstanding in safety and hygiene point of view.
|Please consider KENKI DRYER for drying of sticky materials, adhesive materials and materials in liquid state that no other dryer can deal with.|
|Initial, running and maintenance costs are low because of its simple structure based on internationally patented technology.|
|For sludge drying, costs of our dryers are estimated to be retrieved within 2, 3 years by reducing industrial waste disposal cost.|
|For raw material slurry drying, laborious works of manual operation will be decreased significantly by replacing box shaped compartment tray dryer with our dryer|
|In case of organic wastes drying, the waste can be recycled as fuel, fertilizer, soil conditioner and feedstuff after being dried.|
