Drying capabilities designed specifically to process a full-range of dairy products at the lowest capital and operating costs in the industry.
RELCO®’s Timing Belt Drying System is designed to be used downstream of traditional pre-dryer crystallization (crystallizer tanks). The conversion belt system allows secondary crystallization to take place on a timing belt conveyor. This secondary crystallization promotes the production of free flowing, non-caking, non-hygroscopic whey and permeate powders. The Timing Belt Drying System is designed to produce free flowing whey and permeate powders. Crystallized whey/permeate is feed to a tall form bustle dryer where it is atomized with spray nozzles. Partially dried powder falls to a lactose conversion (timing) belt conveyor where secondary crystallization takes place. Final drying and cooling is done in an external fluid bed.
