This dryer replaces the last of the European dryers furnished when the plant was built. All four dryers are equipped with the energy-saving and exhaust-limiting Automatic Dryer Exhaust Control (ADEC) system.

Since its first Coe dryer installation in 2007, this powerful dryer feature has significantly lowered the plant’s energy and exhaust treatment cost. Like its recently installed predecessor, this latest dryer will be erected fully and then towed into place.

When this new dryer is commissioned, the combined capacity of both six-deck dryers will be more than double the combined capacity of the earlier installed 18-section four-deck (2007) and 20-section four-deck (2009) dryers. USNR was chosen as the dryer supplier.
