Dismantling of a Spray Dryer in a German Dairy

WEKA Industrial Services was commissioned by a large dairy from Armenia with the dismantling of a spray dryer for the production of milk powder. In addition to the disassembly, WEKA has also taken care of the packaging and loading of all the part of that plant.

Project Brief

Our task for an Armenian dairy was to dismantle, package and load a complete system for the production of milk powder at the Rimbek plant at the DMK Group. The customer placed particular value on the complete documentation of the dismantling so that an assembly at the destination could be carried out by a domestic company.

Manpower and duration

On average, 8 of our dismantling specialists were permanently employed in this project. Depending on the complexity of certain parts of the plant, we had to provide additional manpower to ensure that work was carried out quickly and on schedule.

The project had a duration of approx. 8 weeks.
