plc control panel

startup screen

On the initial startup of your dehydrator, you will be presented with the BenchFoods Welcome Screen. From here you can navigate to the Manual Control page, the Program Control Page, or view the status of all system alarms.

plc control panel

manual control

Manual Control is used when you want to run a single batch cycle recipe that will not be used again and is simply a one-off cycle. The Manual Control Page allows you to set the dehydration environment variables. These consist of the time, temperature and the exhaust variables. Once you have confirmed that all the settings are correct, you can run your cycle.

plc control panel

manual control (cont.)

The right-hand panel will display the internal feedback metrics during your drying cycle, including your internal chamber temperature, internal product temperature, humidity level & drying cycle time remaining.

plc control panel

exhaust

Delay Start - This refers to the delay set on the exhaust fan before it starts running through its On/Off cycles; recommended times will be found in your user manual. This allows the unit to get up to temperature quickly and build humidity up in the chamber before the initial exhaust cycle starts.

plc control panel

exhaust (cont.)

Cycle On - This is the amount of time the exhaust fan runs every time it cycles. Cycle Off - This is how long the exhaust fan closes every cycle. Cycling the exhaust system on & off throughout the drying cycle allows the moisture to be wicked out from the centre of your product. This allows for even consistent drying throughout your product and prevents case hardening.

plc control panel

program control

The Select Program Screen displays a list of programs or recipes that can be pre-set to allow for quick access in the future. Program Control allows multiple time and temperature stages to run automatically during a single drying cycle. This is ideal for saving recipes for different products that you may be dehydrating.

plc control panel

program edit screen

Select the program number that you wish to set or access. This will display the program’s edit screen. You can update the required fields and save the program for later. If you want to use multiple steps during your cycle, set the temperature and hours/minutes for which this stage should last. If you do not wish to use all the steps, leave them at 0.

Machine Features

CSV Data Export

Our Industrial Dehydrators feature a convenient USB backup system that automatically records all analytical feedback metrics during the drying cycle. This allows you to easily view and export a spreadsheet of internal chamber temperature, internal product temperature, and chamber humidity levels at 15-minute intervals from previous drying cycles. With this feature, you can keep track of all your drying cycle details and ensure consistent quality control. This is especially useful for production facilities audited by governing safety bodies like the USDA. With our CSV data export feature, you can easily comply with safety regulations and ensure the highest product safety and quality standards.

Remote Operational Control

With our desktop and mobile app, you can easily control and monitor your BenchFoods™ Industrial Dehydrator anywhere in the world. Connect your dehydrator unit to an Ethernet network, and you’ll have access to the actual PLC screen, allowing you to adjust settings and monitor progress remotely. This feature gives you greater flexibility and convenience in managing your drying process, allowing you to save time and maximize efficiency. With our remote operational control, you can be confident that your dehydrator is always performing at its best, no matter where you are.

DrySync™ Technology

Introducing DrySync™ technology. This advanced system allows you to precisely regulate the intake and exhaust valves for the airflow system. It starts by building up the humidity level in the drying chamber. Then it cycles the exhaust system on and off throughout the drying program to evenly remove moisture from the centre of your product. This ensures even and consistent drying while preventing case hardening, which leads to premature food spoilage due to internal mould and bacteria growth. With our DrySync™ technology, you can achieve optimal drying results every time, ensuring the highest quality end product.

Programmable Staged Drying

Our unique Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) enable you to conduct staged drying cycles according to a predetermined recipe. With up to five customizable steps, each with its own programmable temperature and time settings, you can achieve precise and consistent results every time. This feature is particularly useful for “kill-step” processes when making beef jerky and for reducing dry times by starting the cycle with a higher temperature and then gradually decreasing as your product loses its moisture. With this method, you’ll achieve the same product consistency, texture, and appearance in less time without sacrificing quality.

Uniform Drying without Rotation

With our advanced dynamic airflow panels, you will experience evenly distributed hot, dry air across every tray, eliminating the need to rotate your product or trolleys during the drying cycle. Meticulously laser-cut for optimal precision, these panels generate back pressure within the heating chamber, ensuring uniform drying throughout the chamber. With this technology, you can achieve consistent and efficient drying results without extra effort or intervention.

ISO 9001 Manufacturing Facility

Designed and manufactured in an ISO9001-certified facility, it ensures the highest quality standards are met throughout the entire manufacturing process. This internationally recognized standard for quality management systems is a testament to our commitment to excellence in every aspect of our operations, from design to production and beyond. Our ISO9001 certification assures our customers that we adhere to strict quality control processes, using only the highest quality materials and manufacturing techniques to ensure our products’ reliability, performance, and safety. By choosing our ISO9001-certified dehydrators, you can be confident in the quality and consistency of your drying results, and trust that you are investing in a product that has undergone rigorous testing and meets the highest standards of quality and safety.

Completion Cooling Cycle

Our Industrial Dehydrators feature a Completion Cooling Cycle, a vital part of any production process. This cycle ensures that your product is fully cooled to a safe temperature before being handled or packaged. This is important for worker safety, as stainless steel trolleys and trays can hold heat for quite some time. Additionally, bringing the core temperature of your product down fully prior to packaging prevents condensation or moisture from building up inside your packaging during storage, which can affect your product’s quality and shelf life. With our Completion Cooling Cycle, you can ensure the safety and quality of your end product while minimizing waste and maximizing efficiency.

Store Saved Recipes

Equipped with a Programmable Logic Controller that allows you to store up to 15 programs or saved recipes, each with individual programmable steps for temperature and time control. You can also operate a unique DrySync program and cooldown cycle inside these programs, making it easy to dial in your recipes and ensure consistent and efficient drying results. This feature is particularly useful for production facilities that may be doing food trials or drying different types of products. It minimizes the risk of human error and ensures the accuracy and consistency of your drying process. With our programmable recipe storage, you can easily access and modify your saved recipes, ensuring optimal efficiency and productivity for your operation.

Energy-Saving Technology

Our Industrial Dehydrators incorporates a patented Power-Throttling Technology that adjusts the power output based on the set temperature of the chamber. This innovative design allows the units to operate at a reduced power rating, resulting in an impressive 35-45% increase in energy efficiency compared to traditional drying ovens. With our energy-saving technology, you can achieve the same great results while reducing your energy consumption and costs.

Premium High-quality Components

Our industrial dehydrators are built using only the highest quality components and parts, ensuring unparalleled performance and durability. We pride ourselves on using top-grade brands such as Siemens and Schneider for our components, ensuring that our dehydrators are reliable and built to last. Our commitment to using the best components and parts is just one of the ways we ensure that our customers receive the best products possible.

Food-Grade 304 Stainless Steel

Our Industrial Dehydrators are constructed with the highest quality 304 Food-Grade Stainless Steel available.

Your company did an excellent job of keeping me informed of the status of my order at all levels. I appreciate your thoroughness!

This is the second unit we have purchased within a year. The delivery process is great, you are kept informed every step of the way. Fantastic product, very easy to use, clean etc. The finished product is excellent too. The new one we have just purchased has some really good useful upgrades. Highly recommended.
