Electric Heaters for Spray Drying

Interview with Lars Ejstrup, Project Group Manager, Small Scale Plants, SiccaDania

Where do you use heaters from SAN Electro Heat?

SiccaDania uses heaters from SAN Electro Heat for spray drying systems used in the food and dairy industry, for e.g. ingredients and flavourings. Everything from garlic and vanilla to proteins and milk powder - everything you can imagine getting into your food. These are flavorings such as used in ready meals.

What types of heaters do you buy?

95% air heating and 5% heating cables.

We mostly buy direct flow heaters / square duct heaters and closed coil heaters. The closed coil heaters are ones we developed together with you (SAN Electro Heat) many years ago, because they are a bit specially designed. The idea is that we heat up the air that we take in. It takes some of the heat from the tubes that the heating elements are inside, and then they are heated up at the bottom. So we actually preheat them, but the advantage is that it is cold on the outside, that it is also used as insulation, because it draws in cold air, and then draws it around the heating elements, which are then quietly heated up, and then it gets the last shot in that tube that sits inside.

What are the heaters used for?

The heaters are used in spray drying systems. We have to heat air to approx. 200°C. The temperature depends on the product, but typically it is between 170°C to approx. 220°C.

We typically use the Closed Coil Heater to heat our process air.

Compact Design Saves Space

What do you like about our heaters?

The heaters are reliable, they work when we need them. The best thing about your closed coil heater is that it fits our design. If I went out and got any other type of heater of 15kW, it would be square and somewhat larger in dimensions than SAN's heater, also I would have difficulty making our compact design.
