Food Dryers Featuring Low-Maintenance CIP and Stainless Steel Construction
Fluid bed drying systems from Ventilex are easy to disassemble and clean making them ideal for a variety of food and dairy manufacturing processes, including cheese drying. The sturdy stainless steel construction and cutting-edge CIP design of our food dryers makes it simpler to maintain hygiene and safety standards while improving product output and quality.
The Ventilex PLC-controlled drying system utilizes controls that feature state-of-the-art instrumentation. This results in predictable and consistent product quality. Your product is never heated or dried more than necessary and the data logging facility ensures your products are always processed for the right length of time and at the proper temperature.
Ventilex PLC controls and MCC control panel are customizable and can be adjusted for:
Food Drying Systems Reduce Waste and Increase Yield
Fines created in the drying process represent a significant loss of revenue for many material producers. Ventilex fluid bed dryers feature low frequency processing of your product, resulting in a lower impact shaking action that reduces waste.
Our fluid bed dryers, engineered and manufactured by European craftsman, generate a gentle shaking motion that never creates more than 1g of force, compared to vibrating fluid bed mechanisms that generate as much as 8g. This gentler approach to drying your product creates substantially less fines.
Fewer fines = less waste = more revenue.
Combine state-of-the-art sensors, PLC controls and the most sophisticated drying algorithms in the world with our unique approach to fluidization and you get the best return on investment of any dryer technology for high-value product drying. For example, through the use of our drying system, Castle Importing was able to boost production by 168%! The company used our equipment to transition from a week-long drying process in a dehydration room to a machine-driven process that takes only one hour.
What makes our fluid bed dryers right for your business?
- They feature a computerized PLC control system with a graphical user interface. This makes it easy to monitor the drying conditions and alerts users to problems, should they occur.
- They utilize gentle shaking and lifting motions that prevent degradation of the product, which is a common problem when processing fragile materials.
- They dry at a precise temperature and humidity level that is regulated to preserve texture, taste, and color.
