How Dry Cuttlefish by Tsix Fish Dryer

1 Selection

Cuttlefish should be selected and classified according to size and freshness before laparotomy, so as to facilitate uniform dryness and facilitate grading packaging of finished products.

2 sections

Hold the back of the fish, the belly of the fish up, slightly pinched, so that the abdomen protruding, holding the knife from the abdominal cavity straight into the profile or straight before cutting the tail gland mouth. When cutting to the gland hole, the handle should be lowered so that the edge of the knife is gently cut up to prevent the cutting of the ink bag. After the abdominal cavity is dissected, the head and neck are straightened, and the incision is cut directly from the center of the ventral top water pipe to the middle of the head's wrists. When cut to the fish mouth, the knife edge oblique left and right everything, cut the eyeball, so that the eyeball water discharge easy to dry. The joint between mouth and esophagus is cut off with a transverse knife to facilitate drying and removing viscera. Cut the knife edge to be straight, left and right symmetrical, the first knife cut to the gland hole to leave a little distance, otherwise the sun is easy to curl, will water deterioration, dry slowly.

3. Removal of internal organs

Remove the ink sac before going to the viscera, gently pull up the ink sac gland, such as the ink sac should be pulled back slightly, then gently pull forward later, then carefully remove the ink bag, stop ink pollution white meat surface, affect washing and beauty. When removing viscera, start from the tail end, tear to the head, tear near the gills, and peel off the gills and liver attached to the muscles with your nails.

4 washing

Put the cuttlefish removed from the viscera in the fish basket, about 5 kg per basket, put in the sea basket to wash, the ink dirt on the stick cuttlefish body wash off.

Drying process for cuttlefish

Drying is generally required at a relatively low temperature, temperature setting about 40℃ in Tsix seafood dehydrator. In order to avoid excessive temperature, its protein denaturation, damage the quality of drying. At the same time avoid rapid drying, resulting in cuttlefish surface crust, forming false drying. In the heat pump drying room, the negative pressure fan is used to increase the circulating air volume and wind speed in the drying room, and the drying speed is uniform and slow.

Under the condition of maintaining large circulating air volume and high wind speed, cuttlefish can fully contact with air, take away the steam evaporated from cuttlefish under the action of circulating wind, and then filter the water vapor condensation out of the room through the unit.

Because cuttlefish not only has large moisture, but also exists in fat and grease, cuttlefish drying should avoid water vapor staying on the surface of the scale fish, dehumidification is not smooth, and lead to bacterial breeding. Usually the feed quantity of wet cuttlefish is 2-2.5 kg, after drying can get 0.5kg  dry cuttlefish, the dried cuttlefish is good, the color is bright, can maintain the best effect.


How does the Heat Pump Dryer Work?

TSIX heat pump dryer is the heat pump to get high temperature. The

compressor makes the coolant as high temp. and high pressure gas, it

releases the heating energy and becomes liquid when pass

the condenser with the fan running,

this heating energy goes to raise up the air temperature at the drying room. The

water inside of the goods to be dried becomes steam by the hot air, and this

steam is taken away by the exhaust system,

the goods will be tried by doing that again and again.

We have the heating-reuse system to heat up the refresh air from outside, that

can save energy of preheating the fresh air about 60% - 70%.
