Disk Driers



Gusset stay bars.

Disc Type Driers for low temp plants and Cookers for  high temp plants.

  • ASTW understands the function of the disc machines
  • Most disc driers and cookers run at 70% capacity due to old style design.
  • ASTW has spent over 10 years R&D to improve the disc driers and cookers and has installed more than 15 pilot machines in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, trying new designs and gaining experence.

New generation - some of the specs:

  • More pitch = distance between the discs - optimized.
  • Better material flow, less wear and better process control.
  • Better internal steam and condensate flow for higher capacity.
  • No more stay bolts and no more stay bolt leaks - use of (gusset) stay bars.
  • Always bulb type steam jacket - superior and cheap heating surface.
  • 12 mm mild steel discs with U - caps or 10 - 12 mm stainless steel discs.
  • Heavy duty stainless steel cladding.
  • Complete with insulation, galvanized walkway and stairway, temperature control, steam system and heavy duty SEW drive.
  • All spare parts in stock.

ASTW driers always have steam jackets as it is very effective heating surface and increase the efficiency of the drier.Note that steam pressure should be maximum 6 bar.Higher pressure will burn and destroy the proteins in the fishmeal. Inspected and certified to British Standard BS/PD 5500 cat.2, European PED and Australian AS1210.
