Food Processing

About The Food Processing Industry

Food processing combines and re-configures raw ingredients to produce a viable, marketable food product that is simple for the modern consumer to prepare and consume. However, with convenience comes challenges. The food industry is increasingly challenged by issues with purity, storage, contamination, environmental impact, worker safety, and energy consumption. The control and eradication of bacteria is also an ever-present concern.

Vulcan® Drying Systems offers direct-fired dryers for processing food materials. Mainly consisting of an inclined rotating drum with internal flighting, this dryer exposes the material directly to heat as it moves from one end of the drum to the other. The internal flights lift the material as it travels the drum’s length and let it fall, allowing for the direct transfer of heat to the material. The use of a high-temperature direct-fired dryer significantly reduces the risk of contamination.
