The production of dry foods, such as milk powder products, infant formula, baby food, coffee and many other specialty food ingredients, require the use of spray dryers. These dryer systems must provide the highest food quality using a hygienic, robust and efficient process.
Working with Dedert, a leading manufacturer of dryer and evaporator systems, Calnetix has developed a Magnaforce™ motor system on Powerflux™ magnetic bearings for Dedert’s Magnetic Rotary Atomizer in its spray dryer systems to eliminate the need for high maintenance gear drives, belts, bearings and lubrication systems. Dedert’s Magnetic Rotary Atomizer is a compact and mechanically robust design, offering low maintenance and high reliability compared with conventional rotary technology, and can accommodate a broad range of liquid feeds, including abrasive products.
Dedert Atomizers are provided with a Calnetix Vericycle™ variable speed drive and a fully automated PLC-based utility control and monitoring system. Dedert Atomizers also can be readily adapted to existing installations to increase spray dryer capacity or greatly reduce maintenance costs.
Another ideal product for the food industry is an oil-free compressor. Working with a major compressor original equipment manufacturer (OEM), Calnetix has developed a Magnaforce motor system on Powerflux magnetic bearings for the OEM’s oil-free compressor product line to eliminate all risk of oil contamination, as well as reduce operating costs.
