Nut roaster

Food drying is a widely adopted method in the food production industry, and it involves the use of specialized machines known as dryers. This method is particularly valuable for increasing the shelf life of products by reducing or eliminating microorganisms. Food drying has proven to be one of the most suitable techniques for both the production and preservation of various food products. Nuts and dried fruits are no exception to this trend, and to extend their shelf life, roasting machines or production lines are commonly employed. Roasting not only enhances the product's shelf life but also significantly contributes to the crispness and flavor of nuts. This practice has been in use for centuries and continues to be an essential part of food processing. Presently, roasting nuts can be accomplished using either traditional or industrial methods. However, due to the growing demand for this product and the limited capacity of traditional machines, industrial nut production and processing lines have gained prominence in the industry. These roasting nut lines are used for various purposes, including:

  • Sunflower seed
  • Pumpkin seed
  • Cashew
  • Pistachio
  • Peanut
  • Almond
  • Hazelnut

The performance of the nut roaster line

In industrial nut production and processing lines, a common practice involves soaking the raw product (such as seeds, pistachios, almonds, etc.) in a solution of water and salt to achieve the desired taste. The soaked product is then transferred to the roaster for the roasting process. After roasting, the product is cooled and sent to the packaging machine. However, because the initial moisture is not entirely removed from the product, it may still retain some moisture and have a raw taste, resulting in a lack of suitable crispness. Zagros Tav Machine Company has addressed this issue by introducing a new method for nut processing and production, providing customers with a product that is completely crispy and delicious without the raw taste. The company designs and upgrades specialized factories and machines for nut roasting lines, using the latest knowledge and technologies in the field.

Modification of the nut roasting line

In the nut production and processing line designed by Zagros Tav Machine Company, the raw product is first transferred to the roaster (roasting machine), where the moisture is removed. Then, the desired flavor is added to the roasted product, and the product undergoes drying in a three-layer drying machine. This unique design features a three-story roaster and dryer, with hot air evenly circulated beneath and above the product in separate temperature-controlled zones. This ensures that moisture is removed from the machine chamber efficiently. The combination of this special design and the new processing method results in an output product that is perfectly crispy, delicious, and distinct from products produced using conventional methods.

The layout of the nut production and processing line designed by Zagros Tav Machine Company is as follows:

  • Lifter
  • Hopper
  • Distributor
