Spark and plug-up detectors keep dryers and cyclones out of harm's way

A potential for spark-related dryer explosions, as well as labor downtime and production loss from dryer cyclone plug-ups, prompt a nondairy creamer producer to install spark and plug-up detectors.

Dean Foods, Pecatonia, Ill., produces nondairy creamer for retail sale and sale through coffee services. Raw materials received for creamer processing include 2,000-pound bulk bags of maltrin [a powdered corn product], 55-pound bags of powdered casein [a milk-derived precipitate], and tanker trucks of corn syrup and vegetable oil.
