Food drying and feed industry

  • Whenever a hygienic or sanitary design has high priority, fluid bed systems are the preferred solution in the food and feed industry. Together with a gentle and uniform drying result, fluid bed systems are capable to preserve a high quality of the handled ingredients.
  • Fluid beds are used for drying, cooling , roasting, expanding, solvent removal, cooking, and heating.
  • For gentle drying at lower temperatures and extended drying time, TEMA Process dryers use multiple temperature zones with air recycle for energy saving.

Special food applications

Citrus fruit

drying of citrus peel and pulp ethanol stripper / dryer with ethanol recovery.

For high quality pectin extraction TP developed a system for stripping and drying of citrus peel and pulp : Washed peel and pulp , after dewatering are dried in a TEMA Process combined ethanol stripper / dryer with ethanol recovery.

For high quality pectin extraction TEMA Process developed a system for drying citrus peel and pulp. The TEMA Process Fluid bed dryers are widely used to dry orange and lemon peels and offer advantages such as good mixing of solids, high heat and mass transfer rates, ease of operation and maintenance and lower capital costs.
