Whey/Whey Permeate Drying Systems – One System, Multiple Products
Evaporator Dryer Technologies’ whey systems process Mineralized or De-mineralized whey products resulting in the same – powder that is absolutely non-hygroscopic and free-flowing. When producing whey and whey permeate powders it is very important that lactose is processed to the proper degree of crystallization for low hygroscopicity.
In EDT whey systems, powder is exposed to low process temperatures for conversion of β-lactose to α-lactose crystals in the whey products. The result – powder that is non-hygroscopic and free-flowing.
Components of this system configuration include a Hi-Con evaporator, feed system, drying chamber, powder crystallizer, vibrating fluid, cyclones, and wet scrubber. This type of system is extremely energy efficient, with energy costs up to 24 percent less per lb. of powder compared to traditional straight-through spray drying methods.
