Garlic dryer machine is used to dry garlic by using a hot air circulation system. It removes the moisture from the garlic in a short period to help you get dried garlic. It should be noted that if you want to use a garlic dryer machine, you’d better use a garlic slicer machine to cut the garlic into slices. This will shorten the garlic drying time.

The Main Feature of the Garlic Dryer Machine

  1. Hot Air Circulation: Equipped with low-noise axial flow fans and an automatic temperature control system.
  2. Versatile Trays: Customers can choose between perforated and non-perforated trays.
  3. Durable Construction: The outer shell is made from 304 stainless steel (δ1.2mm), ensuring a smooth surface with no scratches or weld marks.
  4. Superior Insulation: High-quality aluminum silicate fiber cotton insulation maintains the outer surface temperature within 10℃ of the ambient temperature, with an 80mm thick insulation layer.
  5. Enhanced Air Quality: The top of the oven has one exhaust vent and one fresh air inlet with high-efficiency filters for clean air circulation.

How Does the Hot Air Circulation Garlic Dryer Machine Work?

The garlic dryer machine is equipped with a low-noise axial fan and automatic temperature control system. The whole circulation system is fully closed. Therefore it has the advantages of high thermal efficiency and energy saving. Under forced ventilation, the garlic slices will be dried evenly. The heating method can be steam heating or electric heating. You can also use both at the same time.

Models of Garlic Drying Machine

We offer several models of garlic drying machines to meet different capacity needs:

  • TZ-24: Capacity of 60kg per cycle, 24 trays, 9kw electric power, 7㎡ evaporation area, size: 1470x1160x1980mm.
  • TZ-48: Capacity of 120kg per cycle, 48 trays, 15kw electric power, 14㎡ evaporation area, size: 2390x1160x1980mm.

Types of Garlic Dryer Machines

In addition to the hot air circulating garlic dryer machine mentioned above, we also have heat pump dryers and mesh belt dryers that can be used to dry garlic.

Mesh Belt Dryer

The mesh belt dryer continuously feeds the materials into the drying chamber through the conveyor belt. The machine has a multi-layer conveyor structure, which can effectively improve drying efficiency. This machine is suitable for continuous production and therefore has high productivity. It can also handle many different shapes and sizes of materials.

However, the disadvantage of mesh belt dryers is that the initial investment is large and the equipment cost is high. It requires a large installation space. Equipment maintenance is also relatively complex.

Heat Pump Dryer Machine

Heat pump type garlic dryer machine utilizes heat pump technology to dry materials at low temperatures. This machine has low energy consumption and is friendly to the environment. At the same time, the drying process temperature is stable, which can avoid the damage of high temperatures to the material.

The disadvantage of heat pump-type garlic dryer machine is higher initial equipment investment. The drying speed is slower. And there are certain requirements for the installation environment.

How to Choose the Right Garlic Dehydration Machine?

First of all, you need to confirm the output to determine the model you want to choose. Secondly, you should consider the energy efficiency. You should choose a garlic dehydration machine with high thermal efficiency so that you can save energy costs.

Then you should also pay attention to the material of the machine, including the material of the box, the material of the inner wall, and the material of the insulation layer. Finally, you need to determine your budget to choose a cost-effective garlic dehydration machine.
