Egg tray drying equipment

Egg tray drying equipment is closely related to the output of the egg tray machine. The egg tray is sent to the drying equipment to dry. There are mainly three drying methods for egg tray. We can provide a suitable drying method according to different capacity, fuel, labor, factory space, cost and, other factors. Egg tray drying machine is the decisive factor for distinguishing the semi-automatic and fully automatic egg tray production.

Egg dry drying method

1. Natural drying

This drying method means that egg tray is dried by the sunlight. When can we choose this drying method? Only the capacity is very small. Because this way is very space-consuming and needs longer drying time. In this way, you don’t need to buy any machinery and equipment and it is suitable for people who want to start this business. But if the capacity is too large, this method is very inefficient.

This way is suitable for the model SL-3*1, SL-3*4.

2. Brick drying

Brick drying means that use the brick house with a conveyor belt to dry the egg tray. This method is suitable for medium production capacity. You need to build a brick house with a conveyor belt. This drying method automates production. The formed egg tray is sent to the conveyor belt directly then the egg tray is dried through the brick house. In this way, the temperature needs about 180~220℃. Heating methods include coal heating, electric heating, and gas heating. People can choose the suitable way according to their situation. Most people will choose the coal to heat. Because coal is a little cheaper than other heating methods.

The brick drying method is quite cheaper and efficiency.

3. Drying box

Drying box is a made of metal. After being formed, the egg tray products contain high moisture and need to be dried to remove moisture from the product. The drying line uses coal, fuel or electricity as a heat source to heat the air. Molded egg trays are dried in hot air. The temperature needs about 180-220℃. If the temperature is too high, the egg tray may ignite spontaneously. The drying time is related to many factors. Such as capacity, the concentration of raw materials, etc. It adopts the fan to extract the moisture evaporated from the product to achieve a fast-drying effect. The drying line has a single layer mesh belt drying and double-layer mesh belt drying and multi-layer hanging drying line. Single-layer mesh belt drying line is about 45 meters in length. Double-layer mesh belt drying line is about 25 meters in length. The multi-layer drying line has a smaller footprint, which can effectively save the heat inside the drying line.

Advantages of the egg tray drying

  1. A variety of drying methods, diverse choice
  2. Automatic production line with high efficiency
  3. Energy-saving for the different drying method
  4. Labor cost saving, the whole production line only needs 3-6 people to operate.
