Installed within the infeed section where material enters the drying system, the airslide inlet tray directs the heated airstream through a series of small openings in the stainless steel plate that face downstream and parallel to the infeed deck. Incoming products begin drying immediately and advance gently and consistently to the primary drying zone while the potential for sticky products to block up the infeed and cause a troublesome cleanup is virtually eliminated.
