In today’s time, it is pretty rare to find ham products that have been smoked or dried in a traditional fireplace. Modern ham products are often soaked in a curing solution, which is designed to penetrate the ham directly and more quickly after the air has been successfully extracted from the pores of the cured meat. At Airtech Vacuum Incorporated, we carry a comprehensive range of industrial vacuum pumps, compressors, and blowers that suit ham drying applications.

About The Ham Drying Industry

Ham is identified as pork that has been preserved through methods such as wet curing, smoking, or salting. The product was traditionally made only from the hind leg of swine. One of the purposes of ham drying was to dehydrate the meat so that its shelf and storage lifespan could be extended. Alternatively, ham drying could simply be one of various processing steps in the manufacture of specific ham products. With that said, the manufacture of fermented meat products like raw hams is a good example where drying is an integral processing component amongst several others.

Common Applications for the Ham Drying Industry
