The plant is designed to dry 1500 kg/h of whey protein. The highest point of the plant is the bag-house filter with a height of 7.9m, while the height of the chamber is only 4.9m. 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.
