The Pasta Production Plant

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

Long Pasta Line

Spreading 

After the shaping process, 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-drying 

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%).

Drying

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%).

Cooling

The temperature drops to 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 10% (+/- 0.5%).

Storage

Pasta is stored at different floors in the silos and is kept there until the packaging process. In the remove and cut unit, pasta strains are removed from the sticks and cut to their final length and transferred to the appropriate packaging line.
