Dryers

Cost effective uniform drying
Our range of dryers are specifically designed to produce a variety of airflow systems across a wide range of applications that include cereals, snacks and nuts, pet food and aqua feeds and much, much more. Each machine provides an excellent drying performance so ensuring a uniformly dried product and a cost effective operation.

The drying process is created by an even circulation of heated air through a bed of material as it is carried through the dryer chamber on a conveyor band.

At Planet Dryers we fully understand that many processes require absolutely precise temperatures. So the drying chamber can be divided into any number of drying sections, each including an air heater and circulating fan together with fresh air inlet and exhaust facilities, giving the ability to have counter-flow air systems.

Our bespoke range of conveyor-band dryers are individually designed to suit each application and to take into account every industry’s specific requirements for hygiene, accessibility and efficiencies.

The range of band dryers include: single pass, single pass / multi-stage and multi-pass units.

All Planet Dryers are of modular design to minimise installation times and reduce transport costs.

The heating systems can be tailored to operate by gas, steam, thermal oil or electric; whichever matches your individual operating requirements.

Features include: stainless steel construction, full access doors all around the drying section, a range of belts including woven mesh, woven mesh with integral side guides and slatted band, upwards/downwards airflow, fully insulated panels and doors, even air distribution, variable speed conveyor drives and air recirculation. Tempering sections, Apron Feeders, ’Picking’ devices and granulators to suit specialist applications.

Coolers

Custom built to your specifications
Each unit can be designed to provide either fixed or variable speed fans and to include air distribution plenum plates.

As each application is frequently unique the coolers are built to provide filtered ambient or chilled air which is then passed through the product at the specific required speed to suit the product’s size, its density and duty.

In most applications, especially concerning food hygiene, ease of cleaning is imperative; so all our coolers have access panels, hinged hoods and swing away product guides to give full access throughout.

A variety of belt types and materials can be used depending on the suitability of the application.
All Planet Dryers’ coolers are manufactured from high Grade 304 stainless steel as standard.

About us

Company details

In any specialist field nothing compares to experience and the ability to stay ahead of the competition. Since forming in 2007 Planet Dryers’ success and allied growth has been built on listening to our customers, working with them as strategic partners, so producing and developing a diverse portfolio of machines and unique capabilities.

In both 2013 and again in 2014 we moved to new larger premises, a much needed evolution to accommodate not only the increasing production levels but to expand the research and development facilities.

Location is a prime concern for all businesses. Centrally based in Peterborough, with its long standing history of specialist engineering, we are literally a stones’ throw from the A1 and the main East Coast railway. This provides first class links to the UK’s road network, a short connection to London and aids export capability.
