Utility for Spray or Freeze Drying
Two different systems
10.00 — Equipment for pre-treatment of milk — Dry-matter goes from 10% to 45-55% before feeding the Atomizer or the Freeze trays. This can take place in a falling film evaporator, or a UF Unit.
10.01– Spray tower with an Atomizer in the top leaves the milk in very fine droplets — Meeting hot on the way down, this evaporate the moister from the fine droplets — Now it’s powder.
10.02 — Freeze-drying is a different approach as the product is solidly frozen while it’s drying under high vacuum
10.03 — Final drying & Instantising so powder is easy to dissolve, can take place in a Fluid-bed as well as other systems, please ask.
10.04 — Packaging equipment for powder.
Both systems are expensive to purchase and operate
