Drying capabilities designed specifically to process a full-range of dairy products at the lowest capital and operating costs in the industry.
RELCO®’s L-TECH™ Permeate Drying System is specifically designed for drying edible permeate resulting from milk or whey filtration. Solids are concentrated from 60 to 70+ percent through a Hi-Con falling film-finished evaporator. The system’s Triple C Processor is capable of continuous cooling and crystallizing of high-solids permeate with a counter-current flow, providing further solids concentration to levels near 75 percent. The L-TECH™ Permeate Drying System’s Air Lift Dryer is fed from the bottom, increasing residence time. An integrated circular fluid bed at the bottom of the chamber provides second-stage drying and fines agglomeration. The recovered fines are conveyed to the drying chamber for agglomeration.
Low fouling; compact design; achieves high solids.
Continuous product flow eliminates tanks for crystallization; concentration occurs with rapid cooling; inlet feed is non crystallized material.
Easy access for filter replacement; stainless steel; horizontal-stacked coils provide compact design; self draining.
Easy top-loading bag, convenient, safe inspection; designed to extend bag life; safety explosion venting.
Bottom air and product inlet allow for two-pass drying; two-pass drying improves efficiency and cost with a compact chamber design; safety explosion venting; integrated fluid bed completes drying and fines agglomeration.
