Recent advances in mixer and blender designs have contributed to the growing success of food companies, meeting their requirement for consistency and developing new products while lowering production costs. By Charles Ross & Son Company
The Guedu vertical dryers provide decisive quality and productivity improvements for processors who require drying of powders for cosmetics or food applications.
Unlike hot air dryers and tray dryers, vertical dryers stir powder under vacuum, allowing for an improved drying time—by a factor 2 to 10 compared to tray dryers—and a total cycle time reduction by a similar ration as the necessary handling is reduced.
Vast savings can be made due to total cycle time reduction, as well as from improved heat transfer during drying— minimising utility costs. Further, the mechanical mixing during drying improves product homogeneity, allowing for powders to come out evenly dried.
