Yellow mealworms have a very high nutritional value, with a protein content of more than 50%, in addition to phosphorus, potassium, iron, sodium, aluminum, and other macronutrients and a variety of trace elements, after drying and processing, the larvae of yellow mealworms contain about 40% protein, the pupae contain 57%, and the adults contain 60%, so yellow mealworms have a very high breeding value.

In the modern insect farming industry, yellow mealworms are widely used and can be made into edible snacks, feed, and food additives such as protein extraction by further processing. The drying process of yellow mealworms is very important, usually using Tenebrio Mealworm Sterilization Drying Machine for processing, Maggots Drying Machine Line is gradually replacing some traditional drying methods.

What is an industrial microwave dryer?

Microwave Sterilization Equipment is a new type of yellow mealworm drying equipment, using Microwave Drying Technology, the microwave is a very strong penetrating wave, which can directly act on the internal of the yellow mealworm, changing at a speed of 2.4 billion times per second, thus causing the water molecules inside the yellow mealworm to swing at a high speed. This causes the water molecules inside the insect to rotate at a high speed, and the molecules rub against each other to generate great heat, thus drying the insect quickly.

The Industrial Conveyor Microwave Dryer has a wide range of applications. In addition to drying yellow mealworms, it can also dry barley worms, flies, crickets, golden cicadas, locusts, geckos, centipedes, etc. In addition, it has a wide range of applications in food processing, chemical, and chemical industries. Microwave Drying Equipment produces puffy, golden brown, crispy, and fragrant insects.

Tenebrio Drying Microwave Oven dries yellow mealworms in the following steps.

1Place the yellow mealworms to be processed in a special material box.
2Place the bins on the continuously running conveyor belt of the Industrial Microwave Drying Machine.
3As the conveyor belt moves, the insects are transported into the microwave chamber.
4After entering the microwave chamber, the insects are immediately killed by microwaves and rapidly expand.
5After that, it continues to be dehydrated by microwave action, thus achieving the purpose of drying and puffing.

Compared with the traditional drying method, Microwave Drying has greatly improved the production efficiency and production quality, which is the ideal choice for insect farmers to improve their economic efficiency.

Advantages of Microwave Sterilization Equipment.

1. Microwave makes the yellow mealworm itself become the heating body, heating inside and outside at the same time, with fast-drying speed and high efficiency.

2. The appearance of the dried yellow mealworms is the same as before drying, with golden color, beautiful appearance, less nutrition loss, and high quality.

3. Industrial Conveyor Microwave Dryer can realize flowing operation with subsequent processing, with low labor intensity.

4. Tenebrio Drying Microwave Oven uses a PLC control system, with high automation, low labor intensity, and low labor cost.

5. Environmental protection and energy saving, which can further improve the quality and economic value of yellow mealworms.

6. Maggots Drying Machine Line can not only dry various insects but also effectively sterilize and puff, in addition, it can also kill tea leaves, etc. It is very versatile and can greatly save investment for Microwave Equipment customers.
