Pet Food & Treat Dryers

HeatTek designs and builds both conveyor and batch style pet food & treat dryers required for all types of pet food and treat products including, but not limited to, natural treats and food, rawhide products, injection molded treats, and extruded treats.

Our pet food dryer system will remove moisture from the dog treats by gradually warming the product, while simultaneously monitoring and controlling the humidity levels and removing the excess humidity to meet the required final moisture levels of the treat.

Our pet food drying equipment is capable of meeting zoned humidity and temperature parameters required for optimal drying conditions. HeatTek’s pet food dryers are designed for not only the most efficient product drying, but also with the most energy efficient components to reduce as much of the equipment operating costs as possible.

For years HeatTek has been a leader in custom industrial drying equipment. We bring this knowledge to the pet food industry. HeatTek dryers can be customized to accommodate most any product size, production rate or cure time. The size of your equipment will vary based on those factors as well as the preferred conveying method suited best to your dryer design.
