Coconut Milk Powder Plant

Various products can be obtained from the coconut like Desiccated coconut, Coconut cream, Coconut Milk etc. Coconut milk has a wide range of applications in food industry and food preparation. Coconut milk is spray dried in order to have a long shelf life; less storage place is required, lower cost of bulk packing.

Process Description

Feed Preparation

White meat of the coconut is extruded and further use as raw feed to Feed Preparation section. This is a simple process which involves mixing of various ingredients in a proper proportion by auto weighing system. The large tanks with agitator arrangement are provided to mix the ingredients. The tanks are also provided with the heating arrangement so as to maintain proper temperature. The feed is homogenized in a specially designed homogenizer.

Spray Drying

The feed is then dried to powder form in a spray dryer. The feed is atomized to fine droplets in a large spray chamber by using either disc atomizer or series of high pressure nozzles. These atomized particles come in contact with hot air and water in it gets evaporated. The feed droplet temperature never reaches the temperature of hot air as it is cooled by evaporative cooling. The dried product is discharged at the bottom of chamber. The dried product entrained with the exhaust air is separated in a high efficiency cyclone separator. The exhaust air is further passed through a wet venture scrubber for recovering the fines not separated in cyclone. Clean air is then vented to the atmosphere the process air is handled by means of two centrifugal fans. The entire operation of the plant is monitored and controlled through a locally mounted control panel or through PLC.

Storage, Mixing and Packing

The dried powder is stored in storage silos from where they are weighed in auto weighing system and mixed with other dry ingredients in right proportions. The mixture is further weighed and sent in the packing section where it is packed in the required quantity.
