CA - Drying Zone

It is usually placed after the pasteurizer to dry the product with hot air, with a customizable percentage of humidity. Constituted of a single treatment belt that feeds the product while the two ventilation systems dry it superficially. 

Once the product exits the pasteurizer it is humid on the surface and the Drying Zone allows to dry it and prevent that products stick to one another. 

Internal structure of the machine with circular section to avoid product stagnation and ease the washing process.

Two ventilation systems place below and under the belt, made ofbattery with steam smooth tubes and ventilators controlled by inverter.

Extracting system for humid air through a ventilator controlled via PLC. 

In order ease the washing process, the machine features a stainless-steel structure and rinsing ramps to reduce machine washing time. 

The bottom panel is inclined on the sides to drain washing water. Openable lateral panels hinged for accessibility. Thanks to peripheraleaves washing water can be collected in different points.

Machine performance

  • Usable belt width: 750 - 1500 – 2000 mm;
  • Drying chamber length: 3-6 m.

Machine designed to dry the product on its surface

the CA HE is usually placed after the pasteurizer to dry the product with hot air, with a customizable humidity percentage. It is constituted of a single treatment belt that feeds the product while the two ventilation systems dry it superficially. Once the product exits the pasteurizer it is humid on the surface and the Drying Zone allows to dry it and prevent that the products stick to one another. 

Internal structure of the machine with circular section to avoid product stagnation and ease the washing process.

The upper ventilation system is composed ofbattery functioning with steam and ventilators controlled by inverter for the heating of the water used during the treatment.

The bottom ventilation system is made of battery functioning with freon/glycolyzed water and ventilators controlled by inverter to monitor humidity in the air. 

In order ease the washing process, the machine features a stainless-steel structure and rinsing ramps to reduce machine washing time. The bottom panel is inclined on the sides to drain washing water. Openable lateral panels hinged for accessibility. Thanks to peripheraleaves washing water can be collected in different points.

Differing from the standard version, the HE features a ventilating system equipped with a condensation system to monitor more accurately air humidity. This allows to have a greater control on the quality of the finished product. 

Machine performance

  • Belt usable width: 1500 – 2000 mm;
  • Drying chamber length: 5-8 m.
