Experience a new level of Tea Engineering


Home   /    CTC Tea Machinery   /   CTC
QUESTEA is specially designed for quality CTC, Green and Orthodox teas, and for trouble free operations. The Drier consists of a 4’/6’ wide chamber with insulation walled construction and 3 tray circuits for 6-stage drying. Multi-pass of hot air results in higher heat transfer rate and reduced fuel consumption.
  • Salient Features & Advantages
  • Technical Specifications

Specially designed steel chain with rolling contact for high load carrying capacity

Adequately glass wool insulated chamber to minimize radiation losses

New edge folded trays with thicker tray tumblers ensure no bridging of big bulk

Aero dynamic over-ground plenum chamber ensures uniform distribution of low velocity air to all sections of drier without any turbulence

Advanced electronic tripping arrangement provided to eliminate jamming of trays

Variable speed drive pulley arrangement for flexible retention time

In-built feeder unit with spreader and leveler for uniform feed

Compatible with a variety of hot air generators i.e. Oil firing/ Wood firing/ Coal firing
