Flexibility is an important part when new technology is introduced, which is why we work to integrate our solutions with customers’ operations in the idea and design phase. All operations have different conditions in terms of waste heat, space, hygiene requirements and control systems, therefore it is important to understand the conditions early on to optimize the process and keep energy use down. For us, the customer is in focus and a key for us is that we work in close relationship with the customer to find the best possible solution. Do you want help or are you wondering how to get started with drying your residual product for use in food production? Scroll to the bottom!
Already in the idea phase we try to optimize the design process and minimize sources of error. This allows us to find the best solutions for your needs. With our products reCirculating Food Dryer for drying of food products and Freeze Dry Unit for dewatering, the variations can be large based on the conditions of the customers. Is high hygiene required? What volumes are required? Is the process continuous? Is the material sticky? And so on. Based on these conditions, a solution is developed.
When it comes to recycling residues from Plant Based Food & Beverages, it can be important to find a solution that can be implemented directly to access the great values, economics and nutrients, in a dried residual flow with food quality, even if the dried end product needs to be sent initially for animal feed. However, when you as a customer are ready, the facility needs to be able to start switching over to recycling this material back into the food chain. To be able to do this, reCirculating Food Dryer and Elajo Technology Solutions help you through the process of realizing the strategy of going to a circular production and maximizing the value of the residual flow.
We value quality and knowledge very high. We place great demands on our suppliers and partners because we know that our customers demand the best from us. Elajo Technology Solutions is part of the Elajo Group and this gives us great access to Elajo Mekanik’s entire knowledge of mechanical manufacturing and production in the mechanical field. Through Elajo El- och Energiteknik, we bring with us the market’s highest competencies in electricity, energy and automation.
This makes Elajo Technology Solutions a complete supplier. We become a natural and competent partner to our customers where we in close dialogue with the customer guide you through the entire process, from A to Z and where we put the puzzle to unlock the value and recycle the residual flow.
Elajo Technology Solutions’ qualified team is involved in commissioning, training and the handing over of the facility so that the customer’s own operating staff receives a good and qualified training of the entire system.
Elajo Technology Solutions will also be available in the future for any service issues, remote access, spare parts or remote monitoring. However, the basis of our solutions is that it should be easy to handle and in a short time be able to be handed over to the customer’s operating organization. Of course, Elajo Technology Solutions is a long-term partner where we want to be the given partner when you want to develop your business and include more residual flows, increase volumes or the like.
Elajo Technology Solutions will help you through the entire process. From where you are today all the way until you start delivering dried material. Of course, we can also via partners or contacts help to sell the dried product. In this way you can get started quickly and easily and be able to take advantage of all the values that are in your residual product.
A process can look like this:
Step 1 – Contact Elajo Technology Solutions for a deeper understanding of reCirculating Food Dryer. In dialogue with you, we look at your specific production, which gives our experts a good picture of the situation, both technically and what you want to achieve with your dried material.
Step 2 – A material test is carried out in our lab. After that, a solution is discussed and Elajo Technology Solutions presents a proposal.
Step 3 – Elajo Technology Solutions takes the entire project from order to delivery. This means that we are put demands on installers, electricity, piping, flows, etc.
Step 4 – Start up, tuning and training. The plant is then handed over to the operating staff on site. Elajo Technology Solutions is of course involved and supports and provides support after the plant has been handed over.
Step 5 – Drying begins and you can start taking advantage of the value of the material.
Step 6 – A possible way to gradually increase the processing of the dried product is to initially dry for animal feed. Dried material has a significantly higher value than a wet one. Gradually, one can suggestively increase the degree of reusing it for food. In this way, you can start to take part of the value in the residual flow and gradually increase the value, economic and nutritional use, and maximize it when everything ready to be turned into food.
Oat fiber from oat beverage production has a very interesting and valuable food content, among other things due to its high protein and fiber content.
This makes the material ideal for making foods such as:
