Today: FTG is the leading player in delivering energy-optimized plants on fishmeal and MWWT plants. We have unique R&D expertise and more than 40 years of experience. Our process solutions are engineered by market-leading expertise, with patented drying technology to optimize the consumption and flow.
FTG has a vision on reducing CO2 footprint and energy consumption on fishmeal and oil plants by up to 50% by 2022.
Fjell Technology Group already has several new patent-pending process optimizations, and our ambition is to establish a new quality standard for parchment flour and oil over the next few years.
Background: The indirect steam heated rotadisc dryer is invented by Peder Solheim from Leirvik at the island Stord, Norway in 1955. The dryer was introduced in the fish meal market in the late 50ties by Stord Bartz, and quickly became a “must” for factories worldwide due to superior energy efficiency, safety, reliability and low odour emissions.
Fjell Technology Group, is a former supplier to Stord Bartz / Atlas-Stord. In the year 2000 we hired a group of key-personnel from Atlas-Stord with altogether 150 years of experience from market, process design and machine design to develop a new generation of Disc Dryers named Fjell Turbo Disc Dryer (TD dryer).
The dryer has a unique endurable patented rotor design without traditional welding, which stays exposed to tear, wear, fatigue and corrosion. The smooth outer disc surface with no high stressed welds is the best way to secure a long and troublefree dryer operation without being haunted by regular steam leakages, which is a common experience for many plants.
The Fjell Turbo Disc Dryer is our main product for Protein Recycling, and many processes are designed around this dryer.
