The drying procedure, on the other hand, employs the conventional way of exposing the food to the elements in an open location. Though the procedure is convenient, practical, and inexpensive, it is unhygienic. Furthermore, the conventional approach is dependent on the weather. As a result, large-scale food production will be limited. This semi-autonomous drying equipment is developed for SMEs in the food industry. Depending on the type of food, the drying process can take 3 to 4 hours. The machine is equipped with a smoke maker, which imparts a smoky flavour to the food. In the drying process, this functionality is optional.
