We have recently succeeded in researching and fabricating mushroom drying system with a capacity up to 400kg of dried mushrooms within 8 hours for Dona Co., Ltd, specializing in exporting mushrooms to Taiwan and the United States.
Dona Company has used the traditional drying method requiring 500 square meters to dry 400 kilogram mushroom within eight hours under a good sunlight condition.
Although this method does not spend fuel or electric power, it requires a huge area and depends a lot on the weather and man power. In addition, Vietnam is a tropical country which is hot, humid and rainy during a year, causes unstable productiveness, especially in rainy season. As a result, does not meet customers’ quantity and quality product requirements, and effects badly on the enterprise’s good reputation and turnover.
Accordingly, we cooperate with the enterprise to find out the best solution to economize both productivity and the investment cost.
After a period of research and experimentation, we have succeeded in designing a mushroom drying system which requires a room with an area of 30m2 and 4 meter height 15 times smaller than the required area as we use the traditional method, can reach a capacity up to 400kg of dried mushrooms within 8 hours and does not depend on high or low humidity, sunshine or rain.
