Technical Drying Services (TDS) provides product drying services with the help of desiccant based dehumidifiers.
The desiccant based dehumidifier removes moisture from the air by chemical attraction rather than condensation. Humid air is directed across a desiccant material that acts as a drying agent. The moisture is collected in the desiccant. The moist desiccant is dried using second hot air stream that heats the desiccant and releases the moisture. Then the desiccant is reused to provide more dry air. In a continuous process the air is dried by the desiccant, at the same time the moist desiccant is dried for reuse so that dry air is available at all times continuously.
The main USP of TDS services is that it provides highly qualified technical manpower along with all the required equipments. As the service is provided on rental basis it can be availed whenever required.
Product drying services provides the following benefits:
- Smoothness & crispness of product is maintained.
- Flavour of spices are retained.
- Caking & Lumping of products can be avoided.
