Page 10 Improving Dryer Yield with Intelligence Controlled drying parameters help to ensure that a food or feed product is shelf-stable. However, one single pro- cessing deviation can dramatically affect batch results and yield.

The system includes a 15-gal col- lection drum, and with no expensive electrical components or moving parts, is ideal for high-volume recovery of fine powders and combustible dusts, making it intrinsically safe. It features manual blow-back filter cleaning with a static-conductive PTFE pre-filter and secondary cartridge filter, and static- conductive casters. Dust, debris, and fine powders are collected in "off-the-shelf" static-conductive polybags, eliminating the "mushroom cloud" that comes with drum dumping. Standard construction includes anti-sparking stainless steel in 304SS or 316SS bead-blast finish, and is suitable for food environments. Vac-U-Max, Belleville, NJ 800-822-8629 www.vac-u-max.com Blender and Tank Drying System The PharmaDry is a portable system engineered to dry large blenders and tanks in 30 minutes or less. A powerful, high-efficiency blower drives this system. It uses forced air to dry blend- ers and tanks up to 2300 gal with minimal operator atten- tion. The PharmaDry can also dry parts, tank exteriors, walls, and floors. This drying system allows quick reuse of blenders and eliminates alcohol wipe downs. In short, the PharmaDry maximizes production time, blending capacity, and facility safety.
