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.
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.
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. This stainless steel grade contains higher levels of chromium and nickel, which forms a protective layer on the surface, preventing corrosion (rust), and preventing the formation of bacteria and other microorganisms. Additionally, it’s non-reactive and won’t react with acidic or alkaline substances found in food and cleaning agents. This steel is also easy to clean and sanitize, which is essential in food production facilities. In summary, using food-grade stainless steel ensures food safety and hygiene by preventing contamination and maintaining the quality of the food being processed.
