Chili itself is a flavored food. Its drying method is the most critical step. Otherwise, no matter how delicious it is, it will not be able to meet the requirements of foodies.

Mechanical drying method The pepper dryer production line is based on the variety of peppers and the drying curve required by the processing technology. Multiple temperature zones are set in the horizontal and vertical directions of the equipment. The peppers are naturally turned during the rotating movement from top to bottom in the drying chamber. After different temperature zones, the three drying processes of preheating drying, uniform speed drying and deceleration drying are successively realized. job result. It can meet the processing requirements of industrial production and consumption of chili peppers, maximize the preservation of the inherent quality of chili peppers, without any pollution in the production process, and the equipment and processing technology meet the national pharmaceutical and food hygiene standards.
