Drying potatoes for feed in a direct-fired, rotary drier. Economic feasibility of the process

Abstract

A practical method has been developed for making potato feed with a direct-fired, rotary, alfalfa-type drier. A plant processing 62 tons of potatoes daily would produce about 13.8 tons of feed, at a cost of about $30.09 per ton. This plant would cost about $92,500. If cull potatoes are available at 25 cents per hundredweight, the cost to make a ton of… (More)
