Chrysanthemums are often used in our lives. If the freshly picked chrysanthemums are not processed in time, the petals will easily change color and wither. To facilitate the storage and transportation of chrysanthemums, chrysanthemums need to be dried and dehydrated. Our chrysanthemum dryer uses pure hot air to continuously circulate through the drying chamber. In the process of heating the material, the hot air takes away the moisture generated during drying to achieve the purpose of drying. During the drying process, the materials are placed in stationary trays, which is not prone to adhesion and can maintain the original shape and color of the materials. Based on the above characteristics, the drying room is especially suitable for chrysanthemum flower drying which has high-quality requirements.
Why choosing our flower drying equipment?
The drying process of flowers plays a decisive role in the shape, luster, and fragrance of chrysanthemum. However, the traditional drying technology can not keep up with the demand, resulting in dried chrysanthemum products have poor coloring, light fragrance, poor appearance, and other problems that affecting the product value seriously. On the contrary, if the chrysanthemum can be dried well, the value of goods will also increase.
The traditional way of drying is generally sun drying. Why abandon the traditional ways? Because it will have some problems like low thermal energy conversion, low degree of automation, heavy pollution.
However, our flower drying machine can solve these problems effectively. Our heat pump dryer uses only a small amount of electricity to absorb a lot of heat in the air to dry the chrysanthemum. Not only the energy consumption is small, the energy conversion rate is high, the quality of drying is also high. The whole process is completely pollution-free and the dryer adopted an automatic temperature control device that can realize 24 hours continuous drying. Based on the above advantages, our heat pump dryer has won the support and trust of the majority of consumers.
The process of chrysanthemum drying
The drying process mainly include four phases
- Phase1: First, preheat the drying cabinet to 35-40°C, put fresh chrysanthemum in the cabinet, and then hold the temperature at 40°C for 4-6 hours while removal of moisture is enhanced.
- Phase2: Raise the temperature in the cabinet from 41 to 48°C gradually within 5-7 hours. Make sure that the temperature is no higher than 50°C while the removal of moisture is enhanced at the same speed. After 9-13 hours of low and medium-intensive drying and strong removal of moisture, chrysanthemum becomes dried half.
- Phase3: Remain 50-54°C in the cabinet for 2-4 hours while slowing down the removal of moisture to help raise the temperature. After this phase, 80% of the water in the chrysanthemum is removed.
- Phase4: The temperature shall be 55-65°C in the drying room, and no higher than 70°C for 2-4 hours, while removal of moisture shall be slowed down properly. With the procedure, halt the dryer according to the color of the chrysanthemum.
