Meat processor Scandia Food enhances efficiency with ACI blower-powered can drier

25 February 2013

“We needed a better drying system because one of the most important elements during the labelling process is the dryness of the can," said Daniel Mitrofan, Manager Tehnic for Scandia Food.

"With the ACI drying system we forgot about this problem.” Daniel was discussing the successful installation of Air Control Industries Can Drying Tunnel at the company’s meat products plant in Judet Sibiu, Romania.

Scandia Food is the leading canned-meat products company in Romania with over 50% of the market offering liver pate, stews, meat sauces and traditional Romanian dishes under the brand names of Scandia Sibiu, Bucegi and Sadu.

The ACI can tunnel is a retro-fit installation on a meat canning line with a throughput of up to 12000 cans/hr. Cans on the line have diameters of 73mm, 83mm and 99mm and heights from 48mm up to 110mm and the ACI system can cope with the all the different sizes with equal efficiency.

With the introduction of the ACI system cleaning operations have been simplified, helping to enhance hygiene functions. In addition, because of the superior efficiency provided by the new can tunnel drier over the previous system, operating cost have been reduced significantly.

The ACI system is an ‘EL’ version of the company’s DRI-Line Series. It comprises a can tunnel plus a blower housed in a leg mounted acoustic enclosure. Cans pass through the can tunnel and air is delivered via precisely configured slots. This arrangement ensures all moisture is removed and contained so as to avoid dispersal of moisture to prevent it being deposited again on cans or elsewhere.

The leg mounting option for the blower provides flexibility in positioning and an easy-to-clean environment with facilitated access all-round. This installation is installed straddling the canning line saving valuable floor space.
