It is a continuous process to cool an incoming molten product by applying it in a thin layer to a revolving Drum on which the material cools, Solidifies and is flaked. Cooling Drum Flakers are utilized in food, chemical, environmental, and pharmaceutical applications for products such as acetic acid, calcium chloride, caustic soda, edible oils, fatty acids, polyethylene glycol, steric acid, waxes and zinc stearate.

Drum Flaker, Consist of a rotating drum with a cooling liquid sprayed on the inside and an Applicator by which the product specific application method for applying the molten product to the drum surface,(standard applications methods isto dip feed pan usually used for low viscosity products, applicator roll usually used for heat sensitive products or agitator roll usually used for super-cooling products).

The solidified product is 100% removed from the drum surface by ridged knife bar assembly. Cooling drum requires precision construction and machining to assure uniform efficient heat transfer. Standard drum materials of construction can range from cast-iron, to hastelloy and are built to comply with ASME.

Enclosures specifically suited for dust containment or toxic vapor containment are provided Due to various types of products and operating environments, almost all aspects of a drum flaker's mechanical design, operating components and ancillary equipment are customizable to meet individual application needs.

We at Mathesis Engineers, design the cooling drum flakers as required by the product specification and process and then take pilot-run, which gives us reliable data to scaleup for correct dryer configuration and drum surface area to meet each individual process design application. The drum length of any given cooling drum diameter can be adjusted for exact cooling surface area requirements to meet and balance upstream (molten liquid) process and downstream (flaked solid) capacity design.

We provide Reliable and Customized solution for processing liquid products to obtain solid flakes.
