Midfield Meats Dryer Installation

Client: SPX FLOW Technology
Year: 2016
Sector: Dairy


Foodline Projects was contracted by SPX Flow Technology to install a 3.9-tonne milk powder plant for Midfield Meat International, the end client. The installation was completed over a period of seven months and comprised of an evaporator, dryer equipment, and all associated pipework. Foodline was also engaged to complete and install the ducting for the project. The sequence of the project timeline involved the installation of all main equipment including the MVR and TVR Calandrias (both EFB & IFB), bag filter, and homogeniser. Foodline assembled the dryer cone and chamber and then installed these components with the evaporator and dryer.


This project specified the ductwork to be internally polished and required specialised tradesmen to assemble and fabricate. All weld seams in the dryer were Dye Penetrant (NDT) and Foodline provided extensive weld maps and logs to the client throughout. All associated pipework was fabricated and installed to AS4041 and installed ductwork and pipework were insulated by Foodline to AS4426 -1997 and labeled as per AS1345. All steam and SAF 2205 were X rayed to 10% of the welds.


Austline Fabrications manufactured and fabricated the specialised platforms and handrails for installation in the milk powder plant and dryer project. The complex platforms were fabricated at TFG’s Welshpool factory and then transported to the site to be installed by qualified tradesmen.
