by Aquafeed.com Staff
Bühler Aeroglide has announced its 2017 drying seminar series, where each participant learns the principles and techniques for optimal drying, regardless of their make or model. Past participant Miriam Villen Rodriguez talks about her experience in Food Australia. (Excerpts republished with permission.)
“As a chemical engineer with Stahmann Farms in Queensland--a tree nut processor using many drying technologies to produce premium quality products--I was interested in a course that would help me make real changes to the business,“ said Miriam Villen Rodriguez, sponsored by the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology.
Rodriguez identifies her top takeaways related to moisture uniformity, dryer evaluation and airflow. “I believe that to improve processing capacity, product quality and energy efficiency, it is important to understand the foundations of the technology you are using,” said Rodriguez.
She further explains how “large deviations force the system to over dry to maintain the batch specification and since most products are sold by weight and water is the cheapest ingredient of every product, this is an area to take into account. “Knowing how to evaluate a dryer will optimize performance and troubleshooting. To obtain consistent product moisture, every piece of product should be exposed to the same airflow and temperature.”
'Drying Theory Put to Practice' explores drying basics including parameters, balancing, evaluating, mechanical inspections and troubleshooting with a dryer simulation. It also teaches advanced drying concepts and measurement practices in a hands-on lab session combined with advance calculation methods used for dryer sizing.
Following is a list of the dates and locations for Bühler Aeroglide’s 2017 seminar series:
- May 23-25, 2017 – Wuxi, China
- June 20-22, 2017 – Braunschweig, Germany
- October 10-12, 2017 – Raleigh, NC
- November 7-9, 2017 – Joinville, Brazil
