Dryers in the food industry mostly serve to remove the excess moisture content from the final product. They perform the process of dehydration. Drying machines are used for drying fruits, vegetables, crackers, fish, meat, mushrooms, herbs, and similar products. These devices ensure a much longer shelf life for storage, reduce their weight, keep the caloric and nutritional value, preserve the vitamins and minerals, and prevent harmful bacteria as well as mold from forming.
