Kiremko and Idaho Steel Roll Out the Biggest Drum Dryers Ever Built
Kiremko and Idaho Steel have joined forces and build four drum dryers with a total maximum capacity of 4,500 kg potato flakes per hour. The two collaborating partners have incorporated the latest technologies and know-how to crate the biggest drum dryers ever built.
These drum dryers have components built in Idaho Falls, U.S., but the drums were assembled in the Netherlands. The drums allow higher quantities of potato mash to be dried and subsequently milled to flake or powder. They are part of a complete production line, consisting of sorting, peeling, cutting, blanching, cooling and cooking equipment of Idaho Steel and Kiremko.
At the same time these drums were being assembled in the Netherlands a further six were being built for various clients in the U.S – ten of the biggest drums ever built, delivered in the first half of 2019.
“These projects demonstrate the level of interest in the latest design of the drum dryer and show that together, we can deliver state-of-the-art turn-key solutions for the potato industry all around the world. For over 23 years, our strong partnership has resulted in innovative products for our customers,” said Davis Christensen, director at Idaho Steel.
“These drums are an excellent example of the strength of our partnership with Idaho Steel. Together we make unique projects like this. Our combined knowhow and engineering power guide us to leading technology,” further commented Andy Gowing, director at Kiremko.
