We have developed the eggshell dryer for drying crushed eggshells in a continuous industrial process. This dryer heats the eggshells to 130 degrees to give a pathogen-free, fine-grained and high quality lime with a maximum moisture content of 1%.
No odour nuisance
This end product can be marketed as a soil improver or lime for the animal feed or cement industry. By removing the moisture odour nuisance is a thing of the past.
Less than 4% moisture
The eggshell dryer is a machine with a single screw and operates as a paddle dryer. The machine requires little installation space in an automated line that breaks the eggs to separate the contents from the shells. After dehumidification the line crushes the shells, after which they land in the eggshell dryer. This removes the last moisture from them, leaving less than 4% moisture.
The eggshell dryer exists in designs for an output of 250, 500 or 1000 kilo per hour. We make the eggshell dryer under the trade name Celsius. The screws for it come from our renowned Van Beek workshop. Our screws are known for their wear-resistance and clean finish.
