Pet food is a snack food specially provided for pets and small animals. It is a high-end animal food between human food and traditional livestock and poultry feed. The main function of pet food is to provide pets with nutrients needed to ensure growth and health. Pet food needs to have the advantages of comprehensive nutrition, high digestion and absorption rate, scientific formula, convenient feeding and use, and prevention of certain diseases. For many pet feed manufacturers, drying in the production process is a very important part. Next, I will show you how to use a microwave dryer to efficiently dry pet food with high quality.
The introduction of pets food drying machine
Microwave drying is a new type of drying method, there is a large number of experiments and data show that microwave drying is the fastest drying method. The microwave dryer has a very wide range of applications, especially suitable for drying powdery, granular, and semi-liquid materials such as food, medicinal, meat, etc. At the same time, in the drying process, it also has the effect of sterilization, so that the finished product after drying can maintain the original nutritional content and traditional flavor.
Microwave drying does not need to be equipped with a heat source, because the microwave energy directly acts on the medium molecules to convert into heat energy. The penetration of the microwave enables the material to be heated inside and outside at the same time without the process of heat conduction. It has the advantages of fast drying speed, uniform drying, easy accessibility, and non-pollution.
Our dryers have standard models, it can also be customized according to customer needs, please send us your needs, we will make suitable equipment for you according to your required output, material characteristics, size dimension, etc.
Why choosing the microwave drying equipment？
There are many traditional ways of drying pet food, from the first drum drying to the later hot air circulation drying room, and the latest microwave drying. In the early days of pet food drying, people did not have high requirements for the quality of pet food. Drum drying is favored by many manufacturers because of its huge processing capacity. However, the integrity of pet food cannot be ensured during the tumble drying process, which can easily cause particle breakage, unequal size, and color, etc., Nowadays, this method can no longer meet people’s requirements for pet food. However, the later hot air circulation drying rooms also gradually withdrew from the stage of history because pet food was mostly granular and light in specific gravity, which was easily blown away by hot air. Moreover, the heat sources of traditional drum drying and hot air circulation drying are mostly electric heating tubes, coal-fired boilers, oil burners, etc. These methods consume a lot of energy, not only consume a lot of costs but also require special personnel to supervise them. In some areas with strict environmental protection measures, combustion-type heat sources also have many restrictions.
To meet the drying needs of the pet feed market and solve many problems such as the high cost of pet food production enterprises, we have launched a tunnel-type microwave drying&Sterilizing equipment. This equipment not only can efficiently dry pet food when the material remains stationary but also has a short drying time, and the food quality is reliably guaranteed. The key components of this equipment are made of anti-corrosion materials which can effectively solve the corrosion in the food drying process. And for the pets’ food drying, dehumidification is a very critical link. Because the meat fillings used in pet foods will cause acidification under the conditions of poor moisture removal, which will affect the quality of drying. Therefore, our microwave dryer is specially equipped with a strong dehumidification function, and twice the dehumidification pipe is added to the top to ensure the quality of pet food.
Advantages of pets food dryer
- Quickly drying speed and high drying quality.
- Adopt PLC intelligent control system, timely response, sensitive control.
- Drying and sterilizing are carried out at the same time to improve product quality.
- Microwave heating area is small, avoid environment high temperature, the intensity and condition of labor are greatly improved, clean without pollution.
- Microwave directly acts on the material, no heat loss, high efficiency, energy-saving.
Applications of the microwave pets food drying machine
Our machine can not only be used to dry meat products, but also can be used to dry fruits and vegetables, nuts, seafood, condiment, flowers, medicine, the chemical industry, etc.
