Shell Dryer

Our energy efficient shell drying unit provides a virtually moisture free shell to the packaging area

Our unique shell dryers recirculate the air through moisture eliminators, which keeps the air dry and hot. Air knives are strategically located to provide the very best drying possible. Up to 99% dryness can be obtained.
