Drying capabilities designed specifically to process a full-range of dairy products at the lowest capital and operating costs in the industry.
Recognized as the world leader in lactose processing technology, RELCO®’s L-TECH™ Lactose Drying System is designed specifically to process lactose to a high-quality edible powder at the lowest capital and operating costs in the industry. Each process step is engineered to maximize yield efficiencies. RELCO® has the technical and practical experience required to manage the flow of whey from cheese making through separation, ultrafiltration, evaporation, crystallization, refining, drying and packaging. This experience is built into the process design, equipment, and automation.
Sized for customer requirements; CIP capable; easy to operate; automated for efficient maximum crystal development
Fully automated for easy operation; counter-current washing; CIP capable; low-volume water usage; efficient purification process
Small compact size; low air velocity and high air temperature; attrition action breaks up the agglomerates into uniform particle size; product inlet is gravity fed from the basket centrifuge; product moves in a heated air stream from the dryer to an interstage cyclone for reduced dust loading on the bag house
Efficient final stage drying and cooling; CIP capable
Hot and cold baghouses collect fine particles from the attrition and fluid bed dryers; fines removed from bag filters are reintroduced to maximize yield; safety explosion venting; sanitary design; easy top-loading bag
The CrystaLac™ Crystallizing Evaporator is an evaporator specifically created and used with the L-TECH™ Lactose Drying System.
