Enhanced efficiency for can dryer system"We needed a better drying system because one of the most important elements during the labelling process is the dryness of the can. With the ACI drying system we forgot about this problem," said Daniel Mitrofan of Scandia Food about the successful installation of Air Control Industries' can drying tunnel at the company's meat products plant in Judet Sibiu, Romania.
The ACI can tunnel is a retro-fit installation on a meat canning line with a throughput of up to 12,000 cans/hr. Cans on the line have diameters of 73mm, 83mm and 99mm and heights from 48mm up to 110mm and the ACI system can cope with the all the different sizes with equal efficiency. With the introduction of the ACI system cleaning operations have been simplified, helping to enhance hygiene functions. In addition, because of the superior efficiency provided by the new can tunnel drier over the previous system, operating cost have been reduced significantly.
The ACI system is an 'EL' version of the company's DRI-Line Series. It comprises a can tunnel plus a blower housed in a leg mounted acoustic enclosure. Cans pass through the can tunnel and air is delivered via precisely configured slots. This arrangement ensures all moisture is removed and contained so as to avoid dispersal of moisture to prevent it being deposited again on cans or elsewhere.
