Salient Features

Kilburn has developed a Desiccated Coconut (DC) Dryer based on the principles of Vibrations & Fluidisation. This dryer generates DC of extremely high quality and meets international food requirements. It is also small and fuel-efficient. KILBURN has pioneered the innovation of TWO TEMPERATURE ZONE DRYING for heat sensitive materials. The compact design of the KILBURN VFBD (Vibrating Fluid Bed Dryer) permits single pass drying, making it a perfect and fuel-efficient drying tool for the production of high-quality desiccated coconut. In comparison to Desiccated Coconut produced on conventional dryers, KILBURN VFBD generates Desiccated Coconut with a very low Allowable Plate Count (APC), low Total Viable Plate Count (TVC), and low coliform. Desiccated Coconut produced on KILBURN VFBD is used by internationally reputed companies for manufacture of high quality confectionery, chocolates and associated food products.
