DESICCATED COCONUT DRYER
 
Kilburn have developed a Desiccated Coconut (DC) Dryer based on the principles of Vibrations & Fluidisation.
This dryer is compact , fuel efficient and produces D.C. of very high quality meeting American and European food industry Standards.
The conventional dryers have several limitations of product quality, hygiene, fuel efficiency and maintenance.
 
Coconut drying process
 
KILBURN has pioneered the innovation of TWO TEMPERATURE ZONE DRYING for heat sensitive materials. The higher temperature zone evaporates most of the moisture at a constant rate of drying. The material is then subjected to a lower temperature in the second zone where balance moisture is reduced to the desired level. This concept prevents discolourisation of desiccated coconut. Concurrently the cost is approximately half that of conventional dryers.
 
Compact design of the Kilburn VFBD enables single pass drying, making it an ideal and fuel efficient drying equipment for the manufacture of quality desiccated coconut.

 
THE PROCESS
 
A measured quantity of wet grated coconut is fed onto a specially designed stainless steel perforated vibrating plate, mounted on an aerodynamically designed plenum chamber. The entire assembly of plenum chamber and perforated plate is suspended on leaf springs and vibrated with an eccentric shaft drive. Hot air from the heat source is sucked in and forced through the plenum chamber by a hot air blower.

In the first zone, hot air removes most of the moisture. Cold air is then introduced in the second zone by a cold air blower to reduce air temperature. Two sets of Cyclo-refirers, mounted on top of the dryer casing, exhaust wet air and separate product fines. The fines are re-charged into the dryer and finally collected in cyclone seperators placed adjacent to the dryer. The dried and free-flowing desiccated coconut is discharged from the other end of the dryer at the room tempetarture.
 
ADVANTAGES
 
Apart from being fuel efficent, Kilburn VFBD produces Desiccated Coconut with a very low Allowable Plate Count (APC), Low Total Viable Plate Count (TVC) and low coliform compared to Desiccated Coconut produced on conventional dryers.
Desiccated Coconut produced on Kilburn VFBD is used by internationally reputed companies for manufacture of high quality confectionery, chocolates and associated food products.
