General Kinematics’ New Alternating Flow Cascade (AFC) Indirect Cooler significantly improves the cooling process for Lithium Chloride and other hygroscopic products. Based on the company’s core Two Mass Technology, the cooler is designed with linear conveying coupled with the true horizontal drive action evenly spreads and maximizes the product contact with the cooling decks. The modular deck design further tumbles the product for increased uniform cooling. Designed with a liquid plenum beneath each deck, cooling fluid is circulated in an opposed direction to the product, following a serpentine motion to optimize the cooling effect. Sealed feed, discharge, and deck chambers eliminate the need for dust collection and prevent moisture from entering making this unit ideal for hygroscopic products.
