In food production, the drying process is used for many food products and vacuum is used for that purpose. It is a method of food preservation done by removing any moisture and water from the food. This process ensures that the food products stay free from any micro-organisms and prevent decay. The bacteria within the food products and from the surrounding air need the water inside the food to survive; it is by removing this air through the drying process that keeps the food safe during and after the production process. With the drying alone, food and fruits are kept safe and preserved for longer periods. And no additional chemical preservatives are needed. At Airtech Vacuum Incorporated, we provide you with all vacuums and blowers for the drying process.
About The Drying Industry
Vacuum drying of food products is a relatively new method. For awhile food producers would freeze dry the food at very low temperatures. However, the freeze drying method is costly and consumes a lot of energy. Another effect of freeze drying is that all the fibers and most of the nutrients in the food are damaged after the process. So rather than freeze drying, a vacuum is used to dry the food by removing the air around and inside the food. The water inside the food rapidly starts to evaporate. Vacuum drying happens very fast which guarantees that color, taste, and all the nutritional elements of the food are all preserved even after the process is done. The fibers in the food are also protected from damage which means that even after water is re-introduced, vacuum dried food assumes its original taste and texture. Vacuum drying is also a process that consumes much less energy than freeze drying.
Airtech Vacuum provides you with all vacuums and blowers for any type of food drying process you need. We also have vacuums used during fish processing. Our vacuum driers are of high quality and extremely efficient. The vacuum driers aid in the removal of all the water from the fish. All water is evaporated from the surface of the fish and the temperature of the fish kept constant. Finally, the temperature is increased gradually causing the water inside the product to move to the surface for evaporation. We also have vacuums and blowers used for vacuum drying many different food products including fruits, vegetables, meats, skim milk, potatoes and many more food products. You need it, we’ve got you covered.
