A single-pot system for the food industry

Mixing, granulating, coating, drying and heating and cooling can be performed in this company’s “single-pot” process developed for the food industry. The process performs chemical reactions or mechanical product treatment in one machine; several process steps can take place without having to isolate the intermediate products. Depending on the application, all reactants can be added into the machine right at the beginning of the process or sequentially, as required. The system consists of a mixer composed of a horizontal, cylindrical drum equipped with a main mixing shaft fitted with a shovel that generates a mechanical fluid bed by rotating. Vacuum drying can then be performed in the same machine, saving time and treating the product with care. — Gebr. Lödige Maschinenbau GmbH, Paderborn, Germany
