Wheat is cultivated worldwide and is one of the most produced cereals besides corn and rice. Apart from the fact that wheat can be used as animal feed, for bread baking, etc. directly after milling, it is also possible to process the wheat into its major ingredients like
- wheat starch
- wheat gluten
- wheat germ
- wheat bran
- wheat germ oil
- 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.
For the separation of the different ingredients, a number of different processes are available. All of them utilize water to liquefy the wheat flour in order to be able to separate its ingredients by means of decanters, centrifuges or other separation equipment. At the end of the process, this water is usually removed in order to obtain a storable and tradable product with a long shelf-life. In many wheat processing plants around the world, this is done on VetterTec dryers.
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 wheat processing 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.
