The TCM E.CO SYSTEM drying line represents a state-of-the-art technological solution which exploits the air permeability of the patented slotted metal belt system.
The uniqueness of this belt lies in the fact that the air, which flows through the large number of slots placed on the belt slats, crosses the product uniformely ensuring a very effective product treatment.
The equipment encloses in a single body both the predrying and the drying and stabilizing sections and is completed by the shaker predryer and the cooler.
The shaker predryer features three parallel tiers and makes use of an oscillating system to ensure optimum product feed and to keep the product perfectly detached and permeable to air.
The shaker predryer is equipped with multiple coils which allow to reach very high temperatures, whereas the side construction of the trays, sealed by special teflon diaphragms, avoid losses of small-cut pasta through high-pressure ventilation.
A high-efficiency ventilation system with ducted fans allows to obtain highspeed predrying in the TCM E.CO.SYSTEM upper levels which, being physically separated from the underlying sections, maintain very severe thermohygrometric conditions.
The equipment lower section is designed for final drying and stabilization; the latter treatment is necessary to make the product perfectly stabilized and suitable to endure the next cooling process.
Final cooling is obtained making use of vibrating belts. The air, cooled either naturally or by cold water coils, crosses the product according to a maximum efficiency principle.
The PLC-controlled sophisticated regulation system and drying process automation (C.A.E.) ensure a simple and safe line management through any step of the production cycle.
This equipment has been specifically designed to meet the demand for high production rates in short spaces through optimum use of building height.
