Pasta Production Plant

The pasta production plant is able to produce around 72,000 tons of pasta annually. The plant has 5 automated production lines, 2 for long cut and 3 for short cut pasta products.

Long Pasta Line


Spreader

The dough has turned into multiple strains of pasta. These strains are passed through a hot ventilation system so they do not stick together and are spread onto sticks remaining there throughout the course of the following processes.

Pre-dryer

Τhe temperature reaches 70 °C and the average residence time of pasta ranges from 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the line of each manufacturer and type of pasta produced. At the end of the pre-drier, moisture of the product should be 18% (+/- 1%).

Drier

The temperature exceeds 85 °C and the average residence time of pasta in the drier ranges from 6 to 10 hours depending on the line of each manufacturer and type of pasta produced. At the end of the drier, moisture of the product should be 12% (+/- 0.5%).

Cooler

In the cooler, the temperature is 25 °C and the average residence time of pasta ranges from 30 to 40 minutes depending on the line of each manufacturer and type of pasta produced. At the end of the cooler, moisture of the product should be 11% (+/- 0.5%).

Storage Silos

In the storage silos, pasta are stored at different floors and are kept there until they are packaged. In the remove and cut unit, pasta are taken off from the hangers and cut to their final length and transferred to the appropriate packaging line.
