Review of Egg Tray Drying System

Although it removes some water with vacuum pump, there is still more than 60% of water left in the trays. That’s we need an egg tray drying line, including natural drying, brick drying, and metal drying line. Let’s have a brief review.

Natural Drying

Natural drying means to dry the trays under the sun. In general, it takes 2-3 hours on windy and sunny days. Due to this drying process requires more space and labor force input, it is only suitable for the small-scale egg tray machine, including BTF-1-3, BTF-1-4, and BTF-3-4 machines. Beston Machinery will offer drying racks and carts if you need.

Brick Drying Line

Semi-automatic drying system is suitable for medium egg tray machines, such as BTF-4 and BTF-8. Of course, it can be used for small egg tray machine to improve the drying efficiency if you have enough money. The brick drying room is more effective than the natural drying system and it is also cheaper than the automatic metal dryer. In general, the temperature inside is from 180 to 220 degrees Celsius, which can dry the trays in a few minutes. In general, workers need to pack the dry trays manually. It is the difference from semi-autoamtic and fully automatic machines.
