Press release date: November 8, 2013

GEA Barr-Rosin recently secured a landmark contract with AB Amilina, in Panevezys, Lithuania to retrofit its SSD™ (Superheated Steam Dryer) technology to an existing wheat feed ring dryer as part of the modernisation of the company's existing wet wheat mill. The project will be completed by the mid of 2014. 

GEA Barr-Rosin's SSD™ technology won the GEA Innovation Award in 2003 for its ability to harness highly recoupable energy through its closed loop system. This has the effect of doubling the energy efficiency of the system installed at AB Amilina because bleed-off energy from the dryer is recovered for use in the multi-effect evaporators completely eliminating the need for live steam. In ordinary systems excess energy from the dryer is sent into the atmosphere after one circuit. The GEA technology makes maximum use of the heat available and allows any emissions generated in the dryer to be eliminated using the heat generated for the dryer as an internal oxidiser.

Heat is applied to the dryer via a heat exchanger thereby eliminating any direct contact between the flue gases and the product.  This simultaneously maintains product quality and allows AB Amilina to use renewable biomass fuel as part of its environmental policy.

Dominique Kuehner, Sales and Marketing Manager for GEA Barr-Rosin commented that the new instillation in Lithuania had combined a number of technologies to create a much more efficient system for the customer.  "We have integrated our technology to achieve high energy recovery from the ring dryer; have separated flue gasses to prevent contamination and allow the use of environmentally sustainable fuel; and eliminated unwanted emissions while significantly reducing the overall energy consumption," he explained.  "It is a very challenging project and one that we plan to repeat in similar applications worldwide."

GEA Barr-Rosin is a market leader in the supply of industrial drying systems and technologies with more than 40 years of experience.  To date the company has installed over 2500 industrial drying systems worldwide.
