Edible insects have many advantages, such as fast reproduction, low contamination, high protein, and mineral content, and, crucially, they can greatly help to combat the still widespread global hunger problem. Moreover, insects such as yellow mealworms, crickets, and black gadflies can also be used as feed, which is also very economically beneficial.

Therefore, insect farming has a very broad development prospect, and insect farming is also a very good business project. Insects must be sold with relatively high-quality standards, especially for insect farmers who want to do export trade and need to further improve the processing quality of insects. The drying process will be closely related to the final product quality of insects, so how to further improve the drying quality of various insects?

How do you dry larvae?

There are many drying methods for various larvae, such as electric oven drying, direct sun drying, Microwave Drying, etc. Insect farmers can choose the drying method according to the actual situation, and for large insect farms, the most ideal drying method is Microwave Drying, which must be done in a professional Tenebrio Mealworm Sterilization Drying Machine.

High-quality insects that meet export standards should have bright colors, high expansion, and high nutritional content, especially yellow mealworms. If the traditional external heating method is used, the yellow mealworms will turn black and the quality will deteriorate, which will affect the economic efficiency. In addition, the drying of insects is not suitable for sunlight, many insects are afraid of sunlight, strong light will easily lead to rotten insects, and will also attract many flies, and the hygienic condition can not meet the processing requirements.

The Industrial Tunnel Conveyor Larva Drying Machine is favored by the majority of farmers because of the unique advantages of Microwave Drying Technology.

Advantages of the Industrial Conveyor Microwave Dryer.

1The microwave acts directly on the inside of the insect, and the inside and outside of the insect will be heated at the same time. In addition, the microwave has the feature of selective heating, so Microwave Sterilization Equipment can ensure fast and uniform drying.
2When drying insects, the direction of moisture is from inside to outside, so Tenebrio Drying Microwave Oven has a puffing effect, which is helpful for the subsequent insect crushing.
3Microwave Drying Equipment is ready to use, there is no thermal inertia, PLC control system is sensitive and convenient to operate, microwave heating power is adjustable, transmission speed is adjustable, easy to use.
4There is no excess heat loss, and far-infrared heating comparison can save 30% of electricity.
5No wastewater, waste gas, waste residue, noise, etc., microwave leakage in line with national standards, Maggots Drying Machine Line is a safe and harmless high technology.
6Industrial Conveyor Microwave Dryer uses low-temperature sterilization to effectively retain the nutrients in insects, and the insects dried by Microwave Drying have higher quality than traditional drying methods.
7Tenebrio Mealworm Microwave Drying Equipment has a small footprint, improving labor conditions and further controlling production costs.
