Granules and powders

The equipment required to produce and process granules in the food industry can vary depending on the specific product being produced. However, here are some common equipment types that may be used:

- Mixer: A mixer is used to blend the ingredients together to form a uniform mixture.

- Extruder: An extruder is used to create a dough-like mixture and then form it into the desired shape, size and texture of the granules.

- Dryer: A dryer is used to remove moisture from the granules, which is important for long-term storage and to prevent microbial growth.

- Coater: A coater is used to add flavor, color, and texture to the granules.

- Sifter: A sifter is used to remove any unwanted particles or clumps from the granules before packaging.

- Packaging equipment: Various equipment such as bagging machines, filling machines, and sealing machines are used to package the granules for distribution.

If you need to produce or process any powder such as powdered milk, protein powder,  cocoa powder,  spice powders,  baking powder, instant coffee, maltodextrin, seasoning powders,  baby formula, instant soup mixes and others, you will need some more equipment additionally to the list of equipment mentioned above.

To produce or process powders  also uses such an equipment:

o Evaporators, to produce the powders from raw products. Evaporators remove water or other liquids from a product by heating it under reduced pressure to allow the liquid to vaporize.

o Mills: These are used to reduce the particle size of the powders to achieve a specific fineness and consistency.

o Grinders: Similar to mills, grinders are used to grind powders into a finer particle size.

o Sieves: These are used to separate particles of different sizes and remove any impurities from the powders.

o Vibratory feeders: These are used to move and dispense the powders to other processing equipment.

o Spray dryers: These are used to convert liquid materials into dry powder by spraying them through a heated chamber.

o Fluid bed dryers: These are used to dry powders by fluidizing them in a stream of hot air.

o Freeze dryers: These are used to remove moisture from powders by freezing them and then removing the ice through sublimation.

o Packaging machines: These are used to package the powders into containers for distribution and sale – the pacing machine fpr powders are rather special because of very small particles.
