Homogenized Blends, Precise Temperatures & Faster Processing Times
With the OptimaDry - Microwave Mixing and Drying System - you get the best of two worlds: our industry-leading Fluidizing Paddle Blender technology by American Process Systems® combined with microwaves, a highly accurate and controlled heating/drying method for a wide range of products. The result is achieving an homogeneous blend while gently and very efficiently drying your product.
The blender's fluidization action assures homogeneous mixes independent of large range of particle size, shape, or density. It is also extremely gentle with fragile ingredients. The OptimaBlend® Fluidizing Paddle Blender is available in capacity sizes from 1.5 ft³ to 400 ft³.
Drying through microwave heat offers precise, uniform, and consistent temperatures, as well as fast processing times and low energy consumption. This drying technology is especially suitable for heat-sensitive products where aroma, color, nutrition, consistency, and other characteristics must be maintained. The advanced microwave generators are scalable and easy to operate.
