Many powders and products attract and retain moisture.
This leads to sticking and caking problems which leads to a reduction in product quality. It also causes difficulties in transporting and packing of the products.
Sticking and caking problems are associated with high humidity. When these products are stored in silos or bins or transported in pneumatic conveying systems, moisture causes these ingredients to stick to silo walls and cause blockages in the conveying lines and packaging.
The results of sticking and caking problems are lower productivity, higher production costs and reduced product quality.
Dehumidification systems are a simple and effective way to combat humidity problems. These systems are widely used to prevent condensation and other moisture related problems such as sticking, caking or lumping. This translates into higher productivity, lower production costs, lower down time and a higher quality product.
Ingredients, food, lozenges and coatings pick up moisture when handled, conveying systems continually draw large volumes of air from the atmosphere and (depending on its humidity) moisture can transfer to the product. Products can become so sticky that they are rejected due to unsatisfactory quality and high speed wrapping machines are unable to cope.
The Munters dehumidification system removes water from the air surrounding the processed product or during packaging to solve the problem. Desiccant dehumidifiers condition the air and prevent condensation, generating a safe and hygienic processing environment where products are kept dry, free flowing and hygienically clean.
