One of the most popular styles of industrial dryers is the tunnel dryer (dehydrator), whose cost is dependent on its size and output. Since both terminologies are frequently used, we have used both in this article even though the dehydrator is the same as the dryer. We shall provide a brief description of the tunnel dehydrator's specifications and use in the text that follows.
An industrial tunnel dryer is used in the food sector to quickly and uniformly dry a variety of items, including fruits, vegetables, herbs, powdered materials, and other products.
In this part, we describe the industrial tunnel dryer's structure. These types of industrial dryers (dehydrators), as their name suggests, are in the shape of tunnels and can vary in length and width as well as in the number of levels, input capacity, body material, and other factors.
Depending on your order, this sort of dryer may run on electricity, gas, or diesel.
According to the customer's specifications, the tunnel dehydrator's body can be made of steel, iron, or any other material, and the thermal insulation can be made of XPS, rock wool, etc., depending on the temperature that is required.
Tunnel and cabinet dryers (dehydrators) differ somewhat in terms of operation in addition to how they look.
Contrary to cabin dehydrators, which must be manually loaded, tunnel dehydrators have a conveyor that feeds goods into the machine and removes it after the drying process.
The quantity of input capacity and drying time between these two types are also different; in this aspect, the tunnels have a bigger capacity and provide the dried product faster.
Of course, tunnel dryers often take up more room and are larger than cabin dryers.
If you have any concerns about the design or the distinction between a tunnel dehydrator and a cabin dehydrator, post them in the comments section and we'll respond.
When asked how the tunnel dryer operates, I must admit that it is simpler than other dryer models to dry a product using the tunnel machine. The conveyor that the machine is equipped with directs the product to the device. Due to the fact that each product's drying time varies, the product remains within the machine for the predetermined amount of time. This is when the product is beginning to dry in the machine. The finished product is moved through the conveyor out of the machine following the drying stage.
This machine is also known as a Continuous Dryer because of the way it continuously enters the product from one side and departs from the other.
It is also known as a conveyor dryer because of the belt that is a part of this dryer equipment.
I'd like to now continue my discussion of the tunnel dryer produced by Arad Machinery.
For the tunnel dehydrators produced by Arad Machinery Company, three phases of power are needed.
The humidity, temperature, and conveyor speed of our machines can all be altered via the control panel.
The output product is consistently homogenous in Arad equipment dryers because of the circulation.
Depending on the customer's order, the dryer's thermal insulation and body may differ.
