The continuous dryer GATEDRYER® represents an important evolution of the traditional spray-drying technology.
Its unique horizontal configuration (in place of traditional vertical towers) allows the GATEDRYER® to be counted among the most innovative machines of the huge Drying sector. When comparing the GATEDRYER® to a vertical tower having the same evaporation capacity, ceteris paribus, the GATEDRYER® presents significant advantages.
First of all, because of its small volume, GATEDRYER® requires much less installation space, compared to traditional spray-dryers.
Furthermore, from a thermodynimic perspective, GATEDRYER® technology is characterised by drying processes with short residence time, thus making it possible to increase the operating temperature, even when dealing with thermo-sensitive products. This also allows for better dried product quality and overall lower fuel consumption.
