This is an extremely versatile dryer which responds perfectly to the drying requirements of special shaped pasta such as nests, coiled or folded pasta, lasagna, jumbo shells, cannelloni or manicotti.

Completely redesigned, the dryer now rests on a base frame fitted with support legs just like all the other production lines manufactured by our company.

The dryer is arranged with a series of trays which hold and carry the product within the dryer, so that its shape remains unaltered. The trays are built in various dimensions, therefore the dryer can satisfy different drying diagrams in function of the production requirements.

An outstanding innovation has been made in the very first part of the horizontal predrying section, where the pasta is exposed to high temperature treatment with a highly efficient ventilation system.

After the traditional vertical column predrying, which has also been improved in mechanical construction and upgraded in ventilation, the trays enter the multi-tier dryer designed with a longitudinal development that provides a particularly extensive surface.

No other dryer with equal dimensions can provide as much usable surface on which even extremely lightweight pasta goods can be processed.

The uniformity of the heat treatment is ensured by the fact that all trays pass trough the same ventilation points.

The final section of the cycle is reserved for stabilization, and at the end of this phase, the product is cooled in two highly efficient cooling units fitted with cold water coils.

In order to satisfy the current packaging requirements, the line features two combined tray storage systems, alternately full and empty trays, to cope with possible operational downtimes of the packaging machines.

The above solution separates the packaging from the production cycle, thus making product packaging more flexible.

The tray with pasta can be emptied in bulk or in packaged form; in the latter case, the tray is automatically conveyed to the relevant packaging system.

The dedicated control system and the process automation of drying, both supervised by the PLC, ensure a simple and safe operation of the line through all the steps of the production cycle.
