Our IU-08 Premium Industrial Dehydrator/Oven can be operated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year! These dehydrators are customizable to suit your requirements.
The layer height for the carts can be modified to increase dehydrator capacity. This is done by reducing the gap between each layer allowing more trays per cart. Each layer of the cart holds two of our industrial trays (64 x 46cm) (e.g. A 15-layer cart holds 30 trays)
There are 4 standard tray options for the Industrial range of dehydrators (304 Stainless Steel Pan, Perforated, Mesh, and Fine Mesh). Alternatively, contact an industrial specialist if you require custom-made trays for your industrial unit.
This model has a temperature range from ambient - 300°F, which can be customized further by adding heating coils to allow the maximum temperature to reach 570°F.
Convective heat transfer, often referred to simply as convection, is the transfer of heat from one place to another by the movement of gases or fluid. Although often discussed as a distinct method of heat transfer, convective heat transfer involves the combined processes of unknown conduction (heat diffusion) and advection (heat transfer by bulk air flow).
ENERGY SAVING PATENTED TECHNOLOGY
Using our patented Power-Throttling Technology, these units will not use their full power rating. Instead, they will adjust according to the temperature set for the chamber. Energy efficiency is increased from a traditional drying oven due to this patented design, becoming 35~45% more efficient.
Our hot air circulation system adopts a uniform and efficient airflow throughout the unit. The wind source is driven by the circulating blower, which forces the air through the heating coils, where it is then taken into the oven’s inner chamber. The used moist air is then sucked back into the air duct to be expelled and the hot air recirculated.
Why choose a benchfoods dehydrator?
Here is a number of reasons we can’t be compared with the rest
COMMERCIAL GRADE QUALITY
Our entire product line is commercial grade stainless steel inside and out. Built for the demand of ongoing commercial use. These units are easy to clean, maintain, and most important food safe.
99 hour timer
Designed for all products and industries in mind, our 99-hour timer will cover anything you might need to dehydrate for more than a full day of drying time.
85-195°F PRECISION THERMOSTATS
Get the quality outcome you're looking for with our precision thermostats. Outstanding temperature control and temperature hold anywhere from 85-195°F.
DOUBLE-WALLED STAINLESS STEEL
Double-walled stainless steel allows for better energy efficiency by keeping the heat where it belongs, inside the drying chamber. This feature also keeps the sides of the machine cool to touch.
HORIZONTAL AIR FLOW
No need to rotate trays or flip product mid-cycle. Our units use horizontal airflow technology to create even drying across all trays every time.
TIME AND TEMP MEMORY
The unit remembers the last time and temperature setting from your previous batch making it easier and quicker if repeating the same recipes in future batches.
TEMPERED GLASS PANEL
These completely food-safe glass panels allow you to operate the controls while wearing food safety gloves. Cleaning them is super easy and they can withstand impacts of 10,000 pounds per square inch, making them perfect for the commercial environment.
AMBIENT AIR MODE
If you desire to dry your product using fans only and no heat, simply set the temperature to 00 on the control panel. This can be great for drying products such as herbs, biltong and some seafoods.
POWERFUL FULLY SEALED MOTORS
Waterproof fan motors feature top-grade dual ball bearings and pure copper coils with an ideal dehydrating motor speed of 1800rpm.
GLASS OBSERVATION WINDOW
Our heat-resistant tempered glass windows are extremely strong and don’t let any heat escape. Able to withstand an impact of 10,000 pounds per square inch. They can also withstand temperatures of up to 500°F.
PREMIUM FOOD-GRADE TRAYS
Our food-grade 304 stainless steel trays are made for the ongoing demand of the commercial food environment. They are easy to clean & maintain, dishwasher safe and are non-corrosive.
STRONG CASTOR WHEELS
Our lockable caster wheels make moving the unit into place and moving them for cleaning extremely easy. Once you get the unit where you want it to stay, simply lock it into place.
Quick, safe, secure & Free delivery
Shipping Insurance is also available on all orders in the checkout page
Analogue controls offer a simple push button operation, easy for anyone to use. Temperature controls are still shown and programmed on a digital display to ensure accuracy of operation. Our exhaust valve allows you to throttle the amount of air that is recirculated back into the chamber from the previous cycle.
We produce industrial-grade stainless steel heating coils. Extremely robust, these heating coils are wrapped in fins positioned along the entire length of the coil itself. These fins help to radiate the heat into the passing air, making them much more efficient than standard heating elements.
AIR DISTRIBUTION Panel Technology
Our units are fitted with dynamic airflow panels which have been lasered for precision. These panels create back pressure from the heating chamber and redistribute the hot dry air consistently across every tray giving you even drying throughout the chamber.
Product warranty applies to the ORIGINAL RETAIL PURCHASER of this product, if it is purchased through COMMERCIAL DEHYDRATORS AMERICA or an authorized retailer, and operated in accordance with the supplied instruction, then for a period of 3 years from the date of purchase the product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship.
To obtain warranty service, an original or copy of the invoice from the original authorized retailer is required. THEREFORE, YOU SHOULD RETAIN YOUR INVOICE.
If your industrial dehydrator needs warranty service, please contact our Technical Support Department or your assigned industrial specialist. In most cases, technical problems can be actioned over the phone. Tech support or industrial specialists can be reached via telephone or email.
Shipping: Standard Domestic Shipping is included in your Industrial Unit price. These units are made to order and will take around 12-16 weeks to your door.
