This 8.5' (2.6 m) wide perforated steel belt dryer from Sandvik Process Systems Inc. is designed to reduce the necessary floor space required for dehydration of fruits and vegetables. The air circulation system achieves high air velocities through the product, resulting in a 50% reduction in processing time. Between 80 and 95% of air is recirculated during the drying process, yielding energy savings. Multiple stage design adds flexibility for future expansion.
