Komline-Sanderson’s Rotary Atomizers are used in:
- Coal fired power plants – flue gas desulfurization systems
- Municipal waste combusters – (municipal waste to energy incinerators), semi dry scrubbers
- Mineral smelting – off-gas treatment plants
- Coke Ovens – off-gas treatment facilities
- Spray drying – plants in chemical and minerals industries
Komline-Sanderson’s variable-speed Rotary Atomizers represent a dependable approach to atomization and spray drying. The compact, rugged, direct-drive, high-speed motor, utilizing only a few parts in one rotating assembly (no gear, pulley, gearbox or coupling), reduces the need for traditional mechanical maintenance. High quality, oil-mist lubricated precision bearings (ABEC-7), of ceramic-ball design, provide maximum reliability for flue gas desulfurization or spray drying applications.
Our Rotary Atomizer units can handle any pumpable feed material, solution or slurry, covering a wide range of feed characteristics in terms of solids content, density, and viscosity. Process material can be fed to the atomizer by a low-pressure positive displacement pump, or even by gravity flow from a head tank. The atomizer converts the feed into a spray or atomized cloud of fine droplets, typically 30-50 microns in size, suitable for spray drying.
All systems are provided with an atomizer control panel/lubrication stand, housed in a NEMA-4 (IP66 equiv.) enclosure, and designed for location adjacent to the operating atomizer. The panel permits control of the oil mist generation system for the lubrication of the atomizer bearings, and flow control for the cooling water to the atomizer stator. The panel also includes all start/stop controls and monitoring functions, including an optional PLC-based atomizer control and system monitoring capability.
K-S Rotary Atomizers feature a variable frequency drive (VFD), using the state-of-the-art pulse width modulation principle for generating a high frequency power supply. The VFD is in a NEMA-1 (IP20) or NEMA-12 (IP55 equiv.) enclosure, intended for location in a remote electrical equipment room area.
