Know About the Band and Combination Dryers Used for Coconut Processing

Drying is one of the oldest preservation methods applied to the food market and processing industry. Drying inhibits the growth of bacteria, mould and yeast, through water removal. The machinery speeds up the drying process and gives a more efficient outcome.  The band dryer is excellent coconut machinery used to make different items. It includes desiccated coconut powder, chips, coconut sugar, flakes, threads, and other products.

What is the Band Dryer?

The advanced machinery called the band dryer finds its application across a wide array of food processing requirements. You can also use it for chemical and mineral products, where drying is done continuously.

Band Dryer

The mechanism is based on hot air circulation through the bed of material placed on the conveyor belt. There are separate drying sections/enclosures, each with a circulating fan and air heater. This facilitates air inlet and exhaust.

The drying happens with precise temperature controls, further reducing installation time and future extensions. The machinery is designed keeping in mind hygiene, effectiveness and accessibility.  

The manufacturers enhance the drying method after embedding – 

  • Upward and downward airflow 
  • Even distribution of air 
  • Double skin insulated panels 
  • Sealing the dryer enclosures 
  • Driers with variable speed conveyors 
  • Recycle of air

Some special features can be attached too, to suit requirements – 

  • integral but separate cooling sections 
  • band cleaning brushes, both wet and dry
  • explosion venting 
  • band scrapers
  • heat recovery
  • exhaust air clean-up
  • pre-wired modular control panels for easy installation

Band dryers made of stainless steel material and access doors on both sides fasten up the drying process. The client can also ask for specifications like internal/external construction changes, external appearance, static or moving guide rails, or more.

What are Combination Dryers?

This is the compressed air dryer system that works on a combination of low-pressure dew points and energy-saving functionalities. You can switch it off at intervals. The machinery is reliable and cost-saving, with compressed air between 2 to 150 m³/min. You can set the PDP levels between -40 and +3 degrees Celsius. You can opt for numerous configuration options and other special optional features like integrating the container module, working pressure up to 16 bar, automatic switching for summer and winter modes etc.

Combination Dryer

The design contains the following elements integrated inside –

  • The air/heat exchanger
  • The refrigerant exchanger
  • The condensate separators 
  • Micro-filters with the condensate drain
  • Refrigerant compressor
  • Condensate separation system with automatic condensate drainage
  • Switch over valve  
  • Outlet diffuser 
  • Particulate filters 
  • Desiccant bed for drying  
  • Regeneration air heating, air inlet and outlet
