Ventilex has a 5-year history as one of the world’s leaders in industrial product drying. Their equipment is trusted in a number of industries including pharmaceuticals, food, dairy, chemicals, biomass, energy and minerals, among many others. We favor Ventilex because their equipment is not only top-performing and reliable, it also saves energy—vital to cost control in any drying process. We will work with you to custom-match Ventilex equipment to your application based on the properties of your product.
Fluid Bed Dryers
Fluid bed drying is a process that essentially “fluidizes” your product by floating it on a bed of air. This allows air to circulate around all product evenly, which results in extremely reliable, uniform drying. Ventilex has improved this process with first-in, first-out movement of product; the ability to “sub-fluidize” for longer drying times; and low energy costs. You will never over-dry or under-dry your product or deal with overheating again.
Fluid Bed Coolers
Ventilex’s fluid bed coolers use a similar concept for controlled evaporative cooling of product. They are superior to other fluid bed dryers because they do not use an electrical airflow to finish the evaporating process—instead, they harness latent heat. This results in energy savings of up to 10% with no change in the properties of the finished product.
Steam sterilizers are used for organic products such as spices which may have been contaminated with bacteria. Essentially, they are fed into a pressurized chamber that uses steam to rapidly exterminate bacteria, then moved into a fluid bed dryer. This results in a high temperature/short time (HTST) process that’s highly effective. Ventilex’s sterilizers treat powders and whole herbs alongside one another, a massive advance over competing equipment.
Ventilex’s pasteurizers allow you to independently set time, pressure and temperature based on the specific pathogens you need to eliminate. They work with a special distribution plate that fluidizes the product, allowing perfectly even pasteurization throughout. Highly effective with low operating cost.
Belt dryers help you offer quality dehydrated products with properties similar to those of the original product. Ventilex belt dryers are sanitary, durable, and reliable—and they give you total control over temperature and humidity no matter what the inlet conditions.
