Mealworm Drying Machine | Microwave Dryer

continuous mealworm dryer

The high-efficient microwave dryer machine(commercial mealworm insect drying machine) is the practical drying equipment for many large mealworm breeding plants. The hot-sale mealworm microwave dryer machine in Shuliy machinery are mainly two types: the batch microwave dryer and the continuous microwave dryer, which are designed for meeting different needs of customers with small or large dried mealworm production. The commercial mealworm drying machine can mainly dry the larvae of Tenebrio Molitor to less than 6% and can retain the nutritional components of Tenebrio insects to the greatest extent, and ensure that the dried insects have a golden color after drying.

Main purpose for drying mealworms by the microwave dryer

For most large scale mealworm farms, fresh larvae and dried worms are mainly sold, followed by the collection of worm skins for sale. Fresh Tenebrio insects larvae can be directly sold to many flower and bird markets, animal farms (chicken, scorpion, bullfrog, parrot, hamster, etc.), food processing plants, restaurants, etc.

Mealworm’s skin contains high trace elements and can be sold to pharmaceutical factories for further processing. In addition, most of the mealworm larvae on the farm can be dried and then packaged for export or sold to the market. After being dried by the microwave drying equipment, the dried insects have a longer shelf life, nutrients will not be lost, and the added value is higher.

Why choose the microwave dryer for drying mealworms?

There are many common drying equipments in life. Why must we choose a microwave dryer to dry yellow mealworm? This is because the general drying equipment cannot effectively retain the nutritional components of mealworms, which may cause a nutritional deficiency in the dried insects and may not maintain the original color of Tenebrio insects. The microwave dryer has great drying advantages. It will not only ensure that the original nutritional components of Tenebrio Molitor are not damaged, but also make the dried insects bright in color after drying, making it more market competitive.

Description of the mealworm drying machine

1. The batch type mealworm drying machine

This small microwave dryer can dry the larva of mealworms in batches. The machine is a box structure with a rotating baking tray in the drying chamber. This mealworm dryer machine is equipped with a special industrial magnetron and a microwave magnetic leakage transformer, which can withstand high temperatures and high reliability. During insect drying, the drying temperature, time and speed are all set and adjustable. This mealworm drying machine is made of high-quality stainless steel and is durable. It works very efficiently, drying 6 kg of mealworm larvae every 12 minutes.
