Extru-Tech horizontal dryers are the leading industry tool for the production of a diverse range of food and feed products, including pet and aquatic foods and foods for human consumption. Extru-Tech has taken dryer technology to the next level with the new Advanced Feature Dryer, which features improved performance and new sanitary dryer features.
Extru-Tech’s innovative design enhances both the speed and ease of the customer’s sanitary operation allowing the Advanced Feature Dryer to be cleaned in as little as 15 minutes. The Advanced Feature Dryer is equipped with augers along the full length of the dryer side plenums to remove fines, along with a dump gate at the air supply plenum to allow quick cleanout at a common collection point. The spreader design is open and allows for ease of cleaning and reduced horizontal ledges.
Extru-Tech Dryers are available in a wide selection of heating systems, including natural gas, propane, propane butane and steam systems. With the steam option, manifolds are included that vent air and remove condensation. Extru-Tech’s state of the art airlock hinge design improves sanitation and reduces airlock failure. Modified internal flashing and reduced endplate clearances offer deeper product beds, which reduce the potential of air or eliminating internal air short circuiting.
Our standard design includes stainless steel in all product contact and high corrosion areas. Fully insulated stainless steel hinged exterior doors provide complete access to heat chambers for maintenance.
