Conditioned tray dryer
When the volumes of different Medicinal & Aromatic Plants (MAP) are small, a conditioned drawer dryer is a solution. In this conditioned drying installation, small quantities of MAP are dried in trays, under the correct air conditions. The installation can be assembled to your needs and specifications.
The conditioned drawer dryer is a closed installation. With this installation the MAP are dried at the desired air temperature to the desired moisture content. This by using dried and heated air. The drawers are placed in an air distribution system. Which ensures that the air is blown or sucked through the MAP. The air distribution system is located in a closed casing so that the MAP can be dried regardless of the outside conditions.
This dryer can be made suitable for drawers or trays of different sizes. This size can depend on the amount of seed, the moisture content
The tray dryer is assembled according to your wishes; the number of sections and the number of trays per section.
The air can either be blown or sucked through the MAP. The choice depends on the specific weight and the amount of MAP. With a suction system, the light MAP will always remain in the drawer and will not be blown out.Dried air is added per section. This air is cooled or heated to the desired temperature.
On the left a blowing system: In this version the air is being sucked in at the rear. And is then blown through the Medicinal & Aromatic Plants from bottom to top via a lockable opening. The air is sucked back to the rear through the top.
On the right a suction system: In this version the air is sucked through the MAP from top to bottom through each tray or drawer. The air is then lifted upwards at the rear and sucked in again at the front through the top.
The air is brought to the desired moisture content and temperature at the top of the installation. This ensures that the MAP are always dried at the desired air condition. The design of the air treatment installation depends on the required air circulation, the amount of moisture to be drained and the temperature at which there should be dried.
