Food industry

Drying food enables a long shelf life as well as a reduction in weight and volume. In addition, a deliberate change in taste can be achieved, e.g. through roasted aromas or a crispy texture, as with some cereals. This makes food dryers a crucial component in the refinement of various kinds of food.

stela is a manufacturer of such drying systems and supplies food producers with customised technology. Food dryers from stela stand for gentle drying so that your product meets the highest quality standards in terms of appearance and taste.

stela's drying systems are characterized by their quality, high energy efficiency and ease of operation. In times of rising energy prices, stela supports you with innovative concepts to increase efficiency. stela is a leader in the use of waste heat, recirculation drying, heat recovery and RecuDry®. The automatic control and monitoring of the drying process also saves important resources and ensures the high quality of the dried food.

From initial trials in our laboratory to successful commissioning, everything at Stela comes from a single source. Due to the high level of in-house production, spare parts are quickly available and first-class support is guaranteed.

stela food dryers are equipped with a special plate belt in which the joints between the individual plates are concealed. This makes the belts particularly hygienic and easy to clean. Of course, depending on the product to be dried, fabric belts, cam belts or link chain belts are also used. In this way, the optimum belt is determined and installed for each drying product.

Since every food product is different and requires a specific drying temperature and time, stela offers its customers individual dryer systems depending on their requirements. Each dryer is designed appropriately in terms of size, ventilation intensity and direction, zoning, number of belts and many other aspects. This is the only way to ensure optimal results in drying all foods. This gives you the certainty of achieving your drying goal.

You too can rely on a reliable and effective drying system from stela - your experienced partner for drying!
