The laboratory Drum Dryer is designed for food, chemical and pharmaceutical research.
The unit can be used for product development and educational use, ideally demonstrating the many drum drying and flaking applications to students. The equipment is supplied fully assembled and ready for connection to site services. Conversion to flaking operation can be achieved within minutes.
The design is fully interchangeable so that any configuration can be achieved by fitting the relevant accessory. The unit is constructed from stainless steel, providing cleanliness and resistance to chemical attack. The drums are cast iron and engineering hard chrome plated to ensure maximum heat transfer and the ability to scale up results to production sized equipment. The shaft mounted main drive speed is simply adjusted by electronic inverter in the control panel.
Vapour Extraction System
This is fitted above the dryer and draws the vapours produced when drying away through the fan and duct assembly.
The stainless steel feed tank and variable speed pump deliver the material to be dried through the solid pipeline to the dryer feed.
The applicator roll can be used on both drying and flaking applications, and gives extra control for those materials requiring it.
Feed Roll Assembly
The double drum dryer can be easily converted to operate as a single cylinder feed roll drum dryer with this accessory.
The dip tray is positioned under the drum and is used to simply apply a film for either drying or flaking purposes.
