The Flake And Drier Cooler is used to reduce moisture and cool flakes/collets. It has a modular design for flexible capacity increase. The hot air is passed through the warm and damp flakes to dry them and achieve the desired final moisture content. In this the flakes are either conveyed to a Dryer-Cooler (DC) or, in the case of a Crown DTDC, they pass through the rotary valve, directly into the drying section of the DC. The Flake And Drier Cooler is very efficient and useful.
