Dewatering shaker[widgetkit id=3813]
The vibrations of the dewatering shaker make it possible to dispose of excess water on products. Water in food which is not bound to food molecules can support the growth of bacteria, yeasts and molds (fungi). The term water activity (aw) refers to this unbound water. The less moisture remains on the product, the lower the water activity or aw value. The water is shaken from the product and collected underneath the shaker. It is advised to recirculate this water. The dewatered products can easily be sorted now. The machine can measure up to 2000 mm in width and is completly made from stainless steel. The drive consists of a vibration motor with springs or an electromagnetic drive with optional frequency control.
