Optimisation of a drying plant for the production of additives for baking mixtures

A manufacturer of drying plants for the production of baking mixtures had to increase its capacities. In the traditional process, the paste was directly led into the grinding dryer. A Leiblein infra-red dryer was connected ahead of the grinding dryer which tripled the capacity of the existing machine.

Functional description

The paste was applied as a thin film onto the drum and the water content evaporated. The dough reaches a cake-like consistency and is transported by a conveyor screw into the existing grinding dryer. Another advantage is, that the dough already went through the temporary “sticky-state” when it enters the grinding dryer, thus enhancing the operational reliability.

Leiblein infra-red evaporator – an ideal solution!
