For over 40 years APISA has been manufacturing and marketing three types of dryer: vertical dryers, trommel-type rotary dryers and horizontal band dryers. The company also manufactures a range of complementary products for drying processes, such as silos, lifts, screw conveyors, Redler-type chain conveyors, structures, grinders, pelletisers, baling presses, bagging scales, etc.
During this period of continuous enhancement and technological innovation to adapt to customer needs, APISA has built dryers for a wide range of products, such as: fodder, grains, sludge, slurry, DDGs, sawdust, wood chips, and industrial confectionary pulp and waste. The company has built complete plants for the extraction of oil from oleaginous seeds, plants for waste shredding and pelletisation, small plants for the continuous production of animal feed, wood pellet plants for fuel production, etc. It has also produced systems for the retrofitting of biomass hot air generators to existing drying processes, as well as facilities for the recovery of residual heat from CHP or ORC plants.
APISA has traditionally served the Spanish market. However, in recent years, supported by major investment in R&D&i, the company has sought to enter new markets and has increased its sales in countries such as: France, China, Portugal, Rumania, Russia, Moldavia, Italy, Kazakhstan, the USA, the Cameroon, Argentina, etc. In recent years, APISA has increased revenues in the agriculture sector by constructing eight fodder dewatering facilities in Rumania and the company is currently installing its second fodder dewatering facility in Argentina. In Spain, APISA has constructed the largest cereals drying and storage facility to be built in recent years. The plant features silos with a capacity of 90,000 cubic metres and two dryers with a capacity of 50 MT/h.
