Softgel Tray Cart


Standard Tumble Drying

  • 1 to 6 baskets
  • Drying trays in tunnels

Continuous Tumble Drying
  • 8 to 16 baskets
  • Larger baskets and blowers
  • No trays or tunnel

Tray Drying - The softgels come out of the tumble dryers and are placed on paper lined drying trays. The trays are then stacked on dolleys and pushed into drying tunnels. This method is used in a multiple product process.

Continuous Drying - Continuous drying uses more and larger tumble dryers, the softgels spend more time in the dryers. This method is usually found in a single product process.
