LDT-50/5D Air Drying Tunnel
The LDT-50 Air Drying Tunnel is suitable for all types of salad leaf.
- Thermal drying
- Closed system
- Integrated cooling section
- Hygienic design
In the drying tunnel, the product is dried in an air stream that is oriented upwards, at a temperature of 25 to 30 ºC. The air speed is such that the product will float, causing as much moisture as possible to be released.
The air stream that is in circulation is cooled down in a heat exchanger to a temperature of approx. 5 ºC. Some of the water vapour is removed from the air stream because it condenses on the cold fins of the heat exchanger.
The air is cooled down and warmed up by using a refrigerant of approx. 0 ºC and, respectively, 33 ºC.
The air drying tunnel enables moisture values of less than 2% on the surface of the product to be reached.
The LDT-50/5D air drying tunnel is equipped with it’s own cooling installation. No additional refrigeration is required.
Capacity – Up to 600 kg/h .
