S&B’s History

October 29, 2008

In 1922, Stelter & Brinck, Ltd. was founded as a manufacturer’s representative agency selling the first industrial burners and controls. Over the years, S&B built a second-to-none reputation among their customers not only for quality equipment, but also for engineering expertise and excellent service. As more and more customers began looking to Stelter & Brinck for complete packaged systems, the company began making the transformation from representative agency to manufacturer.

Today, Stelter & Brinck has been designing and manufacturing industrial combustion equipment out of Cincinnati, Ohio for over 50 years. We are proud of our long history as a supplier of combustion solutions to industry but we are most grateful for our heritage of honesty and quality as reflected in our company motto: “Treat The Customer As You Would Be Treated.”

Because we embody our motto in every aspect of our work, we partner with our customers to ensure each customer is provided with the highest quality services from engineering through equipment start-up. We keep our customers informed at all stages of a project, no matter how small or large. Our customers’ needs become our needs and their problems become our problems.

With over 80 years of experience, S&B is here today, and in the future, to support your combustion needs.

               Typically when purchasing a new process system, the company will get bids for each piece of equipment. Each individual piece is shipped to the end destination and then assembled together to make up the system. There can be a number of problems associated with this type of purchasing: scheduling, installation, and commissioning.

               Integrated systems by Stelter & Brinck are meant to solve the above issues. S&B designs and manufactures custom process heat equipment units and packages them together, allowing the components to be purchased as an entire system. Installation is easy because prior to shipment the equipment has been test fired in-house. Below is an example of a skidded packaged system.Image

For original blog: http://www.stelterbrinck.com/blog/spray-dryers/

            Spray dryers are a type of industrial dryer that are utilized in the food and dairy powder industry. Industrial dryers commonly use process air heaters as their hot air source. Thermal sensitivity will determine what type of air heater (direct or indirect fired) would be used along with the spray dryer.

            A few examples of products that require spray drying are: Inorganic chemicals, instant mixes, and powdered colors. Liquid is pushed through the drying chamber where it is introduced to hot air. At this time the liquid is turned into powder via water evaporation. After drying, the material is separated.

Below is a diagram of a spray dryer.
