The extracted Meal Conditioning Plant, meal emerging from the D.T. is quite hot and at around 100 deg. C. It is received in the meal conveyor. This is ventilated conveyor in which the meal is cooled down to a convenient temperature as it is transported to the meal conditioning section. The cooling may also be effected by draft of air through cyclone and blower system.
Thus the cooled meal is received in the humidifier. In the humidification unit the desired quantity of water is metered in and finely sprayed on the material under process which is vigorously agitated and mixed. The emerging material generally contain moisture of over 10%. The Humidifier is generally located at 2 mtr. level from ground in order to enable direct packing of the material from it through a bagging device.
