    Seiten / pages: 40

    Spray dryer and fluid bed plants are widely used in the food processing industry for producing dry particulate materials from liquid concentrations in a continuous process. The drying process involves product handling in a warm and humid environment and thus a potential hygienic risk is involved. Therefore, applications in the food industry require that spray drying should meet hygienic processing standards and all components in contact with product should be hygienically designed and preferably be EHEDG approved. This document describes the design and operational features of spray dryer and fluid bed plants with integrated or attached fluid beds that produce food and food related products.
