The dry processing segment of the food engineering arena includes everything a food processing plant would need to produce dry goods like flour, cereal, and spices, as well as what they would need to remove moisture from an ingredient.

Powder and bulk material handling is at the heart of the dry processing segment, but such a nebulous category includes a range of equipment from extruders and feeders to mixers and ovens. In this section, you will find more than 70 categories to help with your dry processing operation. Many of these are made up of several subcategories.

Because extrusion enables mass production of foods like pasta, dry types of bread (croutons, for instance), cereals, and snacks, it is a vital piece of equipment. Extruders in this category are broken down into those for continuous cooking; forming and shaping; pasta and macaroni; twin screw; and bimetallic barrels and screws.

Feeders for dry processing are important as well, and even though it would seem simple to feed ingredients into a process, there are many different types of feeders available depending on your application. This piece of material handling equipment regulates the flow of bulk materials into a machine for further processing. Feeder types include centrifugal, gravimetric, loss-in-weight, oscillating, screw, vibratory, and volumetric.

Whether you need to aerate, grind, or blend, mixing is another crucial step in the dry processing operation. The mixer category offers nearly 50 subcategories. So whether you are in need of a batch unit, one that can be installed in-line, or a spice blender, you will want to check out this section.

Of course, ovens are vital when it comes to dry processing. With more than 15 subcategories, including gas-fired, electric, convection, and infrared, there is a range of ovens from which to choose that will fit your dry processing application.
