Successful drying solutions for

Corn Wet Milling Industries

Corn is cultivated worldwide and is one of the most produced cereals besides wheat and rice. Apart from the fact that corn can be used as animal feed, it can also be processed into its ingredients like

  • corn starch
  • corn gluten
  • corn germ
  • corn fiber/corn feed
  • corn oil
  • maltodextrin
  • lysine
  • amino acids

and special products (by-products).

A number of high-efficient, approved and reliable installations in various wet processing plants are operating around the world.

In the wet milling process the corn will be processed through a number of process steps mainly cleaning, steeping, milling and separation, fine grinding and screening, separation of starch and gluten. Further on the starch can be either dried as starch or further processed to syrup and finally to dextrose, maltodextrin or amino acids.

As the entire process will be done under wet conditions at the end of the process this water needs to be removed. VetterTec offers the entire range of mechanical dewatering and all type of dryers necessary to dry the desired products.

On the bases of our broad product portfolio we can offer for some products as germ and gluten different technologies. Depending on customers’ needs and focus VetterTec is able to select the best fitting technology without any preference.

Drying of products consumes a significant amount of the total energy for the process. Thus cost efficient drying is essential for a profitable operation of the plant.

VetterTec offers the complete range of drying and dewatering technologies for corn wet milling plants and acts as a strategic development partner, a system supplier or equipment supplier for this industry globally. A partnership with VetterTec secures the sum of expertise and technologies of world-class specialists in drying, and therefore a profitable operation of the plant.
