Offering the food industrial fan to meet your exact specifications.


Food industry is a series of food related businesses that supplies the food that is consumed by the world population. These businesses include food processing, conversion, food preparation, food preservation and finally food packaging. To further subdividing food industry, it could be segregated into categories below:

  • Agriculture
  • Manufacturing
  • Food processing
  • Marketing
  • Wholesale and food distribution
  • Foodservice
  • Grocery, farmers’ markets, public markets and other retailing
  • Regulation
  • Education
  • Research and development
  • Financial services

Even with advanced agricultural technologies implemented in harvesting, processing of raw ingredients, the majority of agricultural activities  still use conventional agricultural processes to produce food, raise livestock and grow plants. According to the statistics, more than 70% of the food consumed by the world population is harvested from terrestrial agriculture activities. Food processing plants handle both livestocks and plants. It utilises modern food processing facilities for cleaning and processing harvested raw ingredients and livestock, and goes through a packaging process to produce consumer food products. Some perishable food items are required to use certain cold storage facilities to ensure the freshness of food products.

There are many forms of food processing, for example, from grinding grain to make raw flour and from industrial methods to make commercial food products. There are 3 classifications for the food processing, namely primary food processing, secondary food processing and tertiary food processing.

Primary food processing means to process the food at its primary level, commonly known as raw ingredient level. Industrial activities in primary food processing transform raw plants, wheat or livestock into edible products, for instance, cutting meat, canning food and vegetable oil. Most of the processing in this category still uses the traditional way, for instance, drying, de-shelling, milling grain, smoking fist, pasteurising milk. Extra care and regulation are enforced to prevent spoilage and contamination in the processing line as it is affecting public health in large scale as the foods are used widely among the population. Many methods are implemented to keep the food for longer shelf life and improve food safety. Rules and regulations  are also enforced to ensure food processing firms strictly follow procedures and standards.

Secondary food processing involves food processing firms, from small bakery to large factory in creating food from ingredients that are ready to use. The food products in secondary food processing include wine, beer, sausages, fermented fish and baking bread. Basically, food products of this category use the ingredient or output from primary food processing. 

The last category is tertiary food processing, that is commonly known as processed food. These food products are ready-to-eat or sometimes heat-and-serve foods. One of the examples is reheated airline meals.

asta dryer consists of sheet steel panels that are painted with hypoallergenic epoxy paints on the external walls and filled with polyurethane foam, which, in addition to greater insulation.

These steel panels components inherently provide better soundproofing and better structural strength. Humidity and temperature values are critical inside the dryers.

These values are controlled by the electronic control panel with a hygrometer and thermostat. A ventilation system composes of pasta dryer fans, with low noise, heat resistant, with substantial air displacement capacity and system pressure. The hot air, heated by a hot water heat exchanger, circulates inside the dryers.
