The ANDRITZ Gouda drum flaker is used primarily for solidification of chemical and pharmaceutical products. However, more applications for these machines are also being found in the food industry.
The closed design is ideally suited for processing of toxic or offensively smelling products. With the drum flaker, a molten product is converted into a solid form. A thin layer of the liquid adheres to the outside of the rotating, internally cooled drum in a continuous process. Heat is extracted from the product by contact with the cooled drum surface and the product solidifies. The drum flaker is primarily used to produce flakes, but there are also ways of converting your product into easily manageable pastilles or flakes.
