The SD+ option for AeroDry dryers represents a complete redesign of its dryer and results from collaboration with customers in the breakfast cereal industry that identified specific sanitation needs. The SD+ option features include one-piece slab roofs and floors that are pitched to one side of the machine to eliminate water pooling; a comprehensive water management system that directs water and other cleaning fluids out of the dryer; a non-tubular open channel frame design that eliminates water and fines entrapment areas; minimized flat horizontal surfaces, crevices and other collection points making cleaning easier and faster; vertical and horizontal support members that have been turned 45° to further decrease cleaning time; access doors that feature a continuous weld on all seams combined with surface mounted hinges and handles, providing an unbroken barrier against water penetration and bacteria growth; and a number of other design improvements.
