Italy solar powered drier for fish and fruits
2m3 solar powered drier

We are a Modena area manufacturer of solar powered driers of 0,3M3, 2,0m3 and 23m3 with very competitive prices. Our new concept of solar drying, its ability to operate even in very limited conditions of sunshine, while ensuring a good degree of drying of products, makes it a device from the unique characteristics. Great load capacity together with the total space reduced, make it an important element to obtain significant productions in vicinity of cultivation of products.

This feature allows a rapid processing of products, increasing its overall quality, avoiding exposing them to mouldings processes caused by their storage long before the treatment, reducing the cost of transport of the semi-finished product, which can be started directly to the packaging.

The drying process takes place in a shielded from solar radiation in current air electronically controlled environment, this allows you to have products from the special characteristics, rich colors, flavours and original perfumes.

Drying room variable configuration enables the processing of products from disabilities, ensuring a proper process of drying for each type of product.

The electronic temperature control ensures a high quality standard, safeguarding the organoleptic characteristics ofproducts, protecting them from unwanted and harmful warming up.

The device uses the energy of the Sun to heat the air necessary to the drying process, then requires a good exposure to the Sun, while however, the internal conformation of the device is designed in such a way as to be effective even with reduced exposure to the Sun, then the continuous drying process also during the night.

The amount of energy required for its operation is deliberately reduced to allow installing also isolated rural areas where there isn't the possibility of having a connection to the mains.

The robust structure of the device and the ability to be powered in low voltage and consumption reduced, allows you to install the device in marginal areas adjacent to the area of cultivation of products, the 2m3 control system can be powered by a simple car battery or a PV system that makes completely autonomous and installable everywhere.

Inside the 2m3 solar drier possible introduce up to 7 trays 95x95cm with a total surface of 6.3sqm

0,30m3 solar drier technical draw

Drying occurs because hot air produced by the solar collector (2) drawing air from outside (1) the heats and come into the drying chamber (3), the moisture-laden air is expelled from opening (4).

Drying then takes place to the intense flow of air, this allows to achieve a high degree of drying quickly, safe from weather and other factors that could damage the product.

The maximum temperature of the drying chamber never exceeds 50 ° C, this allows the maintenance of essential oils and organoleptic properties of treated products.

The use of polycarbonate in the walls of the drying chamber (3), besides giving excellent strength and durability, it makes a good shield against UVA radiation, allowing a good preservation of color and organoleptic.
