Egg powder manufacturing process:

We all know that poultry eggs are very delicate and breaks very easily, Its so serious that even temperature can affect egg preservation. Eggs can not also be kept for a long time. Egg powder production business has the following production process:

  • The egg is broken in batches and separated from the shell
  • Then pasteurized the egg to stop or reduce growth of bacterial. In this process the yolk is boiled at 140 digrees for 6 to 15 minutes depending on the egg powder quality we intend to get.
  • The egg pulp is spray dried to get dried powder. The egg spray drier consist of a egg feed unit, an egg atomizer that distributes the egg feeds into droplets and blows out hot dry air.The dry hot air is sent to the drying chamber through a highly pressurized tunnel. The Hot air is produced using air heaters.

So the combination of the egg feed, atomizer and hot air chamber makes possible the powdered egg manufacturing
