English term or phrase: cake
to supply two spin flash dryers, used to compress cake, filter solids or thick liquids and dry them to a fine powder.

He encontrado "torta", "terrón", "masa". Alguien conoce la traducción exacta de "cake" en este contexto industrial?
Muchas gracias

torta
Explanation:

Cake : en el proceso industrial de filtración , la torta ( o cake ) es lo que queda retenido en el filtro ( que luego de separarse del liquido se seca y recupera o se descarta )
"...la suspensión a filtrar entra en el conducto inferior, penetra por orificios que se encuentran solo en los marcos que son cuadrados vacíos destinados a recoger la torta resultante de la filtración..."
( explicación del filtro prensa extraída de la guía de seminarios de farmacotecnia II de la Facultad de Farmacia de la Universidad de Buenos Aires )

Masa


Explanation:
Yo utilizaría "masa" porque ya sabes que en este tipo de contextos todo se trata de una forma general; además, después habla de "thick liquids", algo así como líquidos espesos o consistentes y la masa podría tomarse como algo muy parecido a eso.
Espero haberte ayudado.
Suerte.
Cristina.

Does this text have something to do with production equipment for commercial bakeries?


Explanation:
Is levadura of any kind mentioned? If so, seria paquete de levadura. Te doy sitios para que veas lo que se dice sobre el uso de "yeast cake".
"Red Star (RTM) compressed yeast has been used for decades by veteran bakers and is still popular today. Also known as 'cake yeast', compressed yeast must be refrigerated......Packaged in 2 ounce, foil wrapped cakes, it is still available in limited areas, etc, etc.
Same reference FAQ: "How much dry yeast does it take to replace a cake of yeast?" "This yeast is also known as Saccharomyces cerevisiae/budding, baker's and sometimes brewer's
I have used yeast cakes which are a moist form but now prefer the powder form which is called for in most retail products vs. commercial bakeries..
Hope this is helpful, if not we both know something new. Awatts
