More than 100 Conquest Dryers in operation for Orthodox Tea Manufacture in Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia and other tea growing countries.

Conquest dryers have been specially designed for quality orthodox tea outputs at medium to moderately high hot air temperatures, making optimum use ofboth power and fuel. The material to be dried travels on perforated tray circuits before entering the fluidization zone

  • Salient Features & Advantages
  • Technical Specifications

Tea is first pre dried before being fluidized. This ensures optimum utilization of energy.

The hot air fan uses aero foil design blades which reduce power consumption.

Combination drying ensures gradual moisture removal. This eliminates case hardening and improves liquor quality.

Fully steel fabricated insulated plenum chamber minimizes radiation losses. The plenum chamber's aerodynamic profile ensures even distribution of air over the distributor plates.

Can handle particles ranging from 1 mm to 25 mm. Orthodox big bulk and CTC dust can therefore be dried with equal ease.

Energy efficient and perfectly air balanced dust extraction system for optimum cleaning efficiency.

Inbuilt full width Feed conveyor regulates feed of fermented tea into the drying chamber.

The trays carrying fermented tea are fitted on specially designed high load carrying capacity steel chain. Eliminates possibility of disruption in manufacture due to snapping of tray carrying chain.
