Industrial Hot Air Banana Drying Equipment & Fruit Drying Guide
△Tips for color protection of banana chips
Banana meat contains phenolic substances, which can cause browning during processing and storage of finished products. In order to obtain a good color product, it is necessary to carry out color protection treatment. Dip the banana slices in lemon juice. This can improve the flavor and increase vitamins, but the main purpose is to prevent the bananas from turning brown.
△Drying temperature guide for banana chips
Bananas are rich in sugar during the drying process.
If the temperature is too high, for example, when it reaches 80 degrees Celsius, it will cause sugar caramelization.
If the temperature is too low, the baking time will be too long, neither of which meets the requirements.
Therefore, the drying temperature should be controlled at 60 to 65 degrees Celsius, and the drying should be completed in 18 to 20 hours. The moisture content of the finished product is required to be 13-16%.

△The right temperature
△A lot of hot air flow
△Dehumidify in time
The heat pump dryer uses a small amount of electric energy to drive the heat pump compressor to operate. Through the evaporator, compressor, condenser and expansion valve of the heat pump device, the working fluid is continuously evaporated, compressed, condensed, throttled, and evaporated. The circulation process transfers a large amount of solar thermal energy scattered in the air environment to the heat required for drying in the drying room.
Through the fan with large air volume, heat is transferred to the entire drying chamber, the moisture of the food is vaporized and evaporated, and the evaporated water vapor is discharged from the dehumidification system to achieve the purpose of drying the material.
The dehumidification system is equipped with a heat recovery device, and the recovered heat is used for fresh air heating, which can save 70% of the energy consumption of fresh air preheating
