Various kinds of powder, cut materials and granules are sterilized continuously and instantly (four to five seconds), using superheated steam.
High Pressure Rotary Valve
This rotary valve is a critical component in the system which seals the pressurized sterilizing line from the atmosphere for continupus feed and discharge of the material.
Aseptic Air Filter
The primary (pre), secondary (medium preformance) and tertiary (HEPA) filters keep the sterilized product from secondary contamination by foreign matters in drying and cooling processes. The entire system is maintained under positive pressures as a double safety measure.
Vibrating Dryer Cooler
The fine powder can be dried and cooled in the standard system. The large cut materials and granules, however, should be dried and cooled with an optional vibrating dryer cooler since they need long drying and cooling time. The material is dried and cooled at a time floating on the vibrating perforated plate by filtered hot and cold air.
- Excellent Sterilizing Effect
Superheated steam with big thermal energy kills E coli, viable cells and thermoduric cells instantly.
- Minimal Product Deterioration
Short heating time, anaerobic atmosphere and constant temperature in the pneumatic pipes minimizes the product deterioration such as loss of active ingredients or oxidation.
- Flexible User-friendly System
The changeable pressure and temperature make the system flexible for kinds of powder and granules.
- Easy Cleaning
The pipe interior can be cleaned by flushing water from the material inlet, and dried with the inline heater.
The recycling of superheated steam saves energy to increase the thermal efficiency.
