Supercookor® (shown top right) Mixing raw materials while it heats them to produce a highly uniform product, Supercookor is the most durable and efficient system available for continuous cooking applications. See More.

Continuous Hydrolyzor™  Ideal for consistent, high-quality product, the Dupps Continuous Hydrolyzor processes feathers and other hydrozlyzed material at up to 30,000 lbs./hr. See More.

Batch Cookers Dupps Batch Cookers are available in two configurations—with a heated jacket, and with both a heated jacket and heated shaft. Both offer unsurpassed durability and reliable performance. See More.

Discor® (shown middle right) With up to 6,000 square feet of transfer surface, the large-capacity Dupps Discor gives you more cooking or drying capacity per square foot of floor space. See More.

QuadPass® Rotary Drum Dryer  Dramatically better dryer performance than traditional single- and triple-pass rotary drum dryers. See More.

Ring Dryer (shown bottom right) This flash dryer grinds, dries, conveys and produces heat ... all in one system that handles any material that can be entrained. See More.

Dupps Airless Dryer The innovative Dupps Airless Dryer is a rotary drum dryer that features superheated water vapor at atmospheric pressure as the drying medium. See More.

New Dupps evaporator plant one of North America's largest.
When West Coast Reduction, Ltd made the decision to build a brand new rendering plant for non-SRM beef products at their Alberta Processing Division location in Calgary, one operating criterion took precedence: the new facility had to be energy efficient.

The solution: an evaporator system that takes advantage of recycled waste heat from other plant systems to dramatically reduce natural gas consumption. It's one of the largest and most advanced evaporator plants for rendering ever built, with a raw material capacity of up to 65,000 lbs. per hour.

The new Dupps hybrid HCPR™ (High Compression Press Release) screw shaft for Pressor® high-pressure screw presses can extract more fat by dramatically lowering residuals in most rendered products.

The patent-pending HCPR design combines high compression with a release/re-compression feature. By compressing material twice, the HCPR releases more residual fat. In the same way that squeezing a household sponge twice releases more moisture, the HCPR shaft can release more fats by eliminating voids in the feed as it travels through the press.

Combined with precision-cut barrel bars, the HCPR shaft can provide up to 25% lower residual fat in pressed crax for most rendered products. Which means that depending upon Pressor capacity, the HCPR shaft can deliver up to 110 lbs. more fat per hour. Download brochure

With its steam-heated “paddle” shaft construction that exceeds A.S.M.E. Code, and up to 4,400 square feet of heat transfer surface, the Supercookor is the most durable and efficient cooker available for continuous cooking applications. Low agitator rpm means gentle cooking action; end-point temperature and operating level are easy to control. A full-length vapor dome provides more area for vapor release, allows less entrainment and better cooking, plus easy shaft access. Download Supercookor brochure.

Every part of the high-capacity Continuous Hydrolyzor that touches product is constructed of stainless steel. Proven screw feeder technology provides a positive seal for the hydrolyzing vessel, and a steam-heated agitator shaft ensures optimum heat transfer and steam efficiency. Valve-controlled product discharge maintains a proper residence time and minimizes steam use.

Heated jacket Batch Cookers offer up to 10,000 lb. (4,500 kg) capacity, and feature a special agitator arm design that evenly distributes dry products—ideal for feather hydrolyzing and similar applications. The pressure vessel meets ASME Code construction standards for 100 psi internal and jacket pressure. Download brochure.

Batch Cookers with both a heated jacket and heated shaft provide shorter batch times and higher throughput. Less exposure to excess heat results in product with higher nutrient value. Available in capacities up to 17,200 lbs. (7,800 kg); ASME and TÜV/PED code standards. Download brochure.

Discor's rotary disc 'closed-loop' steam system prevents condensate and non-condensable gas build-up in the discs for more efficient heat transfer. Discor also features extra corrosion allowance, and fewer exposed welds, on the discs for longer life. Discor's durable, rigid drive mounting features a direct-coupled, base-mounted reducer.

Unlike ordinary three pass drums that can over-dry, the QuadPass dries each particle of material at its individual drying rate, regardless of size, density or moisture. Lower voc emissions, better product color, more uniformly dried product and reduced fire danger are just some of the advantages of the patented four-zone QuadPass rotary drum dryer.

Because it exposes the material to heat for only a few seconds, the Ring Dryer gives you a cooler product, ready to bag or store, with accurate moisture content and no wet spots. And because it recirculates 50% of the heated drying air, you save on fuel costs.
• Recirculating the heated exhaust air reduces odor
control costs.

• Short exposure to heat retains product digestibility
and lysine bioavailability.

• Product has light, uniform color.

• Available in an airless configuration.

The Dupps Airless Dryer offers a number of important operational benefits over conventional hot air dryers: 

• There is minimal risk of in-drum fires because of the oxygen-
starved environment.

• It's an indirect heated dryer—the products of combustion are isolated from the process loop of the dryer.
• Minimal odor control equipment is needed.

• There is no visible plume of dryer exhaust.

• The dryer's exhaust is essentially water vapor, which can be
condensed to recover thermal energy and used
elsewhere in the plant.

• No pressure vessel is required because the dryer operates at
atmospheric pressure.
• Exhaust volume is much less than comparable heated air dryers.
So if an RTO is used, it will be considerably smaller, and less
expensive.
