Powder Systems Technology


Spray Drying

Coulter Dryer & Fluid Bed Dryers are constructed to produce creamers of a wide density range with the minimum amount of fine particles products are all Kosher approved.

  • Homogenization: particles of fat are reduced in size to 2 microns for excellent creaming
  • Pasteurization: ingredients can be heated and held for a determined time and temperature to assure proper stability
  • Wet Mixing:
    – Liquid corn syrup: stored and processed hot
    – Handling of bulk liquid vegetable oil
    – Conversion of casein to caseinate
  • Packaging:
    – 2,000 lb Supersacs
    – 40-50 lb bags per pallet (stretch wrapped)
    – 50 lb multi walled paper bags, heat-sealed
    – Metal detection

FILTERMAT Spray Drying

The FILTERMAT® spray dryer provides gentle, flexible and economical drying for a variety of ingredients, including hygroscopic or sticky food and dairy products, which are difficult to handle in other drying systems.

It is ideal for the gentle and economical production of a free-flowing, agglomerated powder. Our extensive experience provides complete control over crucial aspects of the drying process, including:

  • Final moisture content
  • Final product structure

We also offer a Tote Tumbling System for gentle blending of bulk materials, a Gas-Injected, High Pressure Homogenizer Drying System for foaming creamers.

Foam Drying

Gas injection of air into liquid dairy or non-dairy mixture before spray-drying. Very low bulk density of finished powder that contains trapped air for a large amount of foam release when added to coffee or hot chocolate.
