TCM E.CO.SYSTEM Technology

Applied to short goods lines up to 6000 kg/h

TCM E.CO.SYSTEM Functional diagram

The TCM E.CO.SYSTEM drying line was created to meet the needs of high capacity lines to be installed in very limited spaces in terms of length, by exploiting the height of the factories. It represents a compact solution with a high technological content to guarantee maximum operational flexibility. The single-body dryer integrates the predrying, drying and stabilization phases.

The TCM E.CO.SYSTEM dryer is combined with a press, which has a dough mixing system that can be one of the following: Total Vacuum, Stabilization Belt or Traditional Mixer, a 3-tier shaker predryer and a single-tier belt cooler. The constructive and technological characteristics of this line allow to obtain ideal drying diagrams for each and every raw material used.

The 3-tier shaker exploits an oscillation system that ensures that the product is shook continually, to avoid it from sticking, and that there is an efficient air flow. The shaker is equipped with multiple coils which create optimal temperatures to prepare the pasta for the next drying phase. The sides of the vibratory trays are sealed with special teflon diaphragms to keep small-sized shapes in position despite high pressure ventilation.

The TCM E.CO.SYSTEM dryer, thanks to a high efficiency ventilation system with ducted fans, is equipped with a high speed air predryer in the upper tiers. This section is physically separated from the lower drying and stabilization section to maintain independent thermohygrometric conditions. In the lower part of the machine, the ventilation is designed in such a way that the final drying and stabilization phases ensure a perfectly stable product adequately prepared for the next cooling phase.

The qualifying element of the TCM is the slotted metallic belt, a patented and unique system, which guarantees elevated performance levels.
The uniqueness of this belt lies in the fact that the air, which flows through the large number of slots in the belts, crosses the pasta uniformly ensuring a very efficient product treatment. In fact, the air flows through the product uniformly across the width of the belt to ensure that each and every pasta shape is treated in the same way. The air porosity of the slotted belts combined with the high load capacity per square meter provide high production capacities in limited spaces, while the construction and technological features of this dryer allow you to obtain optimal drying diagrams for each of the raw materials used.

The final cooling phase is done in a single-tier belt cooler. The air, cooled either naturally or by cold water coils, flows through the product according to a maximum efficiency principle, ensuring a balanced and efficient cooling of the pasta that is subsequently conveyed to the storage section in optimal condition, ready for packaging.

The innovative electronic supervision system is intuitive and easy to use and ensures that you can run the line and all the production cycle phases in a flexible and reliable manner. It integrates perfectly with the pasta factory control system to guarantee the exchange of all process data necessary for production control and product traceability.
