EVAPOR: a centrifugal-flow thin-film vacuum evaporator suitable for food, pharma-chemical, biochemical and other industries where other types of evaporators encounters difficulties.
Typical applications: enzymes & antibiotics – protein solution & fermentation broth – chinese herbal extract – seasoning – extract – oil & fat – vitamins – synthetic resin.
RIBOCONE: a conical ribbon mixer dryer. The product is lifted entirely from the bottom to the top of the cone with its specially designed rotating ribbon screw. The ribbon screw is designed to be wider from the bottom to the top.
The vortex breakers enable the product to be mixed or dried uniformly and efficiently. To increase its efficiency, this equipment is enclosed in a jacket that can be used to heat or cool down the product inside the vessel.
Typical applications: electronic & IT materials – ceramics – magnetic materials – chinese herbal medicine – seasoning – animal feed – resin powder.
SPRUDE: a bottom nozzle type continuous fluid bed spray granulator. This unit directly converts the liquid into granules. The heavy granules (600 kg/m³ or more) that are difficult to be produced on a conventional top spray system can be produced in this equipment. Installation space and manpower can be saved since it works as a spray dryer and a fluidized bed granulator on a single equipment.
Typical applications: seasoning – health foods – soups – sweeteners – black tea – coffee – cocoa – organic acids – enzymes.
