Fluid bed dryers for spray drying

Fluid bed dryers for spray drying

Spray drying is a method of producing a dry powder from a liquid by rapidly drying with a hot gas. This is the preferred method of drying of many thermally sensitive food products, like milk powder, proteins, vitamins, nutraceutical etc, A fine powder is produced with a spray dryer but it can have a poor product flow.
Instead of drying the liquid in one stage, drying is done through two steps: the first step is the spray dryer. In the second […]

Natural sterilization/pasteurization of products with pure steam

Natural sterilization/pasteurization of products with pure steam

Food safety ! Natural sterilization/pasteurization of products with pure steam has gained significantly in popularity with the introduction of the continuous HT-ST “In-Flow” steam decontamination process.
The very short contact (20-40 seconds) with high pressure steam (autoclave) at a temperature that may vary between 102°C and 122°C makes it possible to decontaminate heat sensitive food products without adverse effect on quality.
After the thermal steam treatment, the product is dried on a fluid bed dryer.
Suitable for spices, herbs, seeds, nuts etc. #steam#sterilizer

NEW: Cooled Bed Plate for the Tema Process fluid bed dryer [video]

NEW: Cooled Bed Plate for the Tema Process fluid bed dryer [video]

Heated process air is supplied to a special perforated distributor bed plate. Via the bed plate the hot air flows through the layer of solids at a velocity sufficient to support the weight of particles in a fluidized state. The heat in the air is used to evaporate moisture from the product. The drying air picks up moisture and cools down during the evaporation. This means that for example the supply air can be 90°C but as a result of […]

Drying minerals with a heavy-duty Tema Fluid Bed dryer

Drying minerals with a “heavy-duty” Tema Fluid Bed dryer.
In the first stage of drying, free (surface) moisture is removed from the product and all available energy supplied as heat (gas burner) in the drying air is used for evaporation.
The temperature of the air moving through the fluidized bed drops as it absorbs moisture up to its saturation point. If there is a change in the moisture content of the feed or in the feed rate, the temperature of the air […]
