- ShurGreen Farms Contributes to Danone's North America Goal to Achieve Zero Waste to Landfill By 2025
"When our plant achieved Zero Waste to Landfill in 2020, the full force of our facility and local community came together to support a culture of waste reduction and redistribution," said Elizabeth Masteller, Environment Health & Safety Manager at Danone North America's Minster, Ohio plant, which produces popular yogurt brands including Activia®, Danimals®, and Oikos®. "In 2021 alone, we sent more than 2,500 tons of waste to ShurGreen Farms to be transformed into renewable energy, crop nutrition, and animal feed, while repurposing product packaging. This is an eye-opening amount of waste diverted from landfills, and a further step in our company's One Planet. One Health frame of action." > READ FULL STORY

WHY SHURGREEN FARMS Baker-Rullman Triple-pass Rotary Drum Dryers Baker-Rullman direct heat rotary drum dryer machines have been chosen for their rugged build, ultimate reliability, and excellent ROI. Our direct heat rotary drum dryer machines rely on contact between the material and process gas to dehydrate a very broad variety of materials. ShurGreen Farms partners with the Baker-Rullman out of Watertown, Wisconsin, to customize and install a Rotary Drum Dryer System to convert wet byproducts into dry poultry and swine feed. > Baker-Rullman triple-pass rotary drum dryers < Triple-Pass Technology Baker-Rullman Triple-Pass Technology remains the superior dehydration system by optimizing operating costs, efficiency, and end-product consistency. STEP 1 Wet material enters the inner cylinder, propelled through the system via a hot gas air stream. The material is continuously lifted by the cylinder flights and showered through the concurrent stream of hot gases. The three full-length interlocked concentric cylinders rotate together designed for the highest velocity in the inner pass. As lighter particles quickly lose 60% of their moisture and move out of the cylinder, heavier, denser particles are retained until they lose 60% of their moisture. STEP 2 Particles graduate to the next cylinder only when they have shed enough of their moisture to be carried out. Progressively larger diameters of the cylinders cause the velocity to decrease with each subsequent pass. In this section, the partially evaporated particles are handled more gently, again only graduating to the next pass when they have shed the proper amount of moisture. STEP3 Because of the earlier retention time in the first two passes, the material is relatively uniform by the time it makes it into the gentle third pass. This means the product is guarded against over-drying or under-drying and ensures the optimum use of heat while producing a consistently high-quality end product. Equipment Advantages Baker-Rullman’s energy-efficient, high-performance rotary dryers have developed a global reputation in ultimate reliability. Here are some key factors that have contributed to this unequaled record of dependable equipment Full-Length Cylinders - All three cylinders in the Baker-Rullman triple-pass dryer system are full-length, giving the customer the maximum effective length and residence time in the smallest possible package. Drive Components - The drum dryer drive arrangement uses engineering class bushed-roller chain and sprockets, specifically designed for this type of drive application. Trunnion Rollers - Our trunnion rollers are made from Class 50 cast iron with a minimum roller face hardness of 270 BHN. The inboard tapered roller bearings, which have a ‘B-1-’ life of 15 years, allow the roller to rotate around our stationary roller shaft supported by our hold-down pillow blocks. Baker-Rullman has proven this to be more reliable than the smaller diameter roller with an integral cast shaft system offered by our competition. Drum Tires - Baker-Rullman drum tires are designed and manufactured significantly different from those used by other vendors. Each tire is hot forged from a single billet of AISI 1025 teel, then finish machined. There is no weld seam, and the steel grain structure is oriented for greater wear resistance and strength. It is forged into a “T” cross-section instead of the usual rectangular bar cross-section other vendors generally supply using rolled and welded bar stock. Product Advantages Baker-Rullman’s triple-pass dryer design remains the most trusted dehydration technology for optimizing operating costs, efficiency, and product consistency. High BTU efficiency - Better heat utilization created by longer residence times, robust temperature control, and drum insulation allow the Baker-Rullman triple-pass rotary drum dryer to achieve efficiencies better than 1,500 BTUs per pound of water evaporated. Consistent evaporation - Baker-Rullman’s triple-pass dryer design protects your product from under or over-drying. Heavier, wetter product moves slower than fine particles, giving uniform drying to all particles. That’s why our rotary dryers have long been known for protecting the protein value of food by-products and the integrity of all types of material. Reduced Volatile Organic Compounds (V.O.C.) emissions - V.O.C. emissions can cause pollution problems and restrict your production rates. Heat utilization in a Baker-Rullman system is superior to that of the other rotary drum dryers by virtue of the triple-pass rotary dryer design, eliminating unnecessary V.O.C. emissions. A properly sized and tuned system suited to your input volume is the key to planning an efficient system, and Baker-Rullman engineers are dedicated to accomplishing these goals with each and every installation About Baker-Rullman Known for our industrial innovation and engineering expertise, Baker-Rullman is a worldwide leader in rotary drum dryer machine manufacturing, installation knowledge, drum dryer reconditioning services, and a network of used drum dryers and portable rotary drum dryer rentals.
