How to reduce humidity in a powder drying process?
DESSICA provided a solution for FUCHS in Germany. The manufacture and packaging of food powders such as spices and condiments require a low-humidity production and packaging environment.
DESSICA’s customer is FUCHS, a manufacturer of spices, herbs and condiments for the retail and food industries.
Economic challenges: How can we prevent food powders from setting and clogging?
- Preventing powders from sticking together
- Prevent mould growth
- Prevent contamination (such as salmonella)
Technical challenges: How to prevent food powders from regaining moisture?
- Provide air at 11°C and 3g of water/kg of dry air
- Provide a dehydrator that complies with the sterilisation and pasteurisation processes (VOW group)
DESSiCA supply a 1400 m3/h DP dehumidification system for industrial processes, with pre- and post-dehumidification boxes (upstream and downstream).
The system has enabled FUCHS to reduce production stop and product sticking on the food powder production line.
