Medicinal mushrooms are an abundant source of a wide range of useful natural products with biological activities.Cordyceps militaris, one of the Chinese traditional medicinal mushrooms, is an entomopathogenic fungus belonging to the class Ascomycetes. It has been widely used as folk tonic food and an invigorant for centuries and its various pharmacological activities have attracted much attention. This mushroom produces many kinds of active components such as adenosine, polysaccharides, and mannitol. Adenosine has many pharmacological effects; it can be used as a cardioprotective and therapeutic agent for chronic heart failure, and it also could inhibit the release of neurotransmitters in the central nervous system. Polysaccharides are considered to possess antiinflammatory, antioxidant, antitumor, antimetastatic, immunomodulatory, hypoglycemic, steroidogenic, and hypolipidemic effects. Mannitol (cordycepic acid) has diuretic, antifree radical, and antitussive activities, etc.
The processing of Cordyceps flowers can be passed through the dryer.The Dryfree herbal medicine drying equipment is equipped with a rotary dehumidifier and a negative pressure fan. The dehumidification effect is good, the air volume is large, and the wind speed is high. The moisture on the surface of the drug can be quickly removed to prevent the moisture from staying on the surface of the material and affecting the quality of the product. The structure of the drying room adopts the cold storage professional heat-insulating extruded board, which is heat-insulating and durable. The control system adopts PLC+ human-machine interface, the control is precise and stable, and the unattended automatic operation has been realized. The heat source adopts the rotary dehumidifier, the energy efficiency ratio is up to 3.0, the drying amount is large, the color of the baked product is good, the added value is high, and the storage power is small. Save you running costs. And the equipment has no three waste discharge [waste water, waste, waste gas] is a set of environmentally friendly and energy-saving drying equipment.
Advantages of Dryfree herbal medicine drying equipment:
(1). Using internal circulation normal temperature dehydration technology, the dehydration, shaping and drying of the medicinal materials are completed in one time, which saves energy compared with the drying method of traditional hot air drying and venting moisture.
(2). Forced circulation, so that the temperature difference between the upper and lower sides of the cold air drying warehouse is small, and multiple fans are circulated, and the temperature and humidity in all corners of the warehouse are even.
(3). The special negative pressure fan for the dry storage of Chinese herbal medicines ensures uniform dry matter and uniform color, and completely retains various trace elements and nutrients of the drug.
(4). Drying the computer board PLC temperature and humidity automatic control and display, truly realize automatic management, no need for personnel to be on duty.
(5). Rapid drying, using imported compressor circulating dehydration treatment, energy saving, high yield and large output.
(6). It is dried at a relatively low temperature of 15 °C-60 °C. During the drying process, the Chinese medicinal materials are not deformed, cracked, discolored, no deterioration, dry thoroughly, good rehydration after drying, less loss of nutrients, and long storage period. Protects the color, aroma, taste, individual form and active ingredients of the dried product more effectively than any conventional drying equipment.
(7). This machine has reverse phase, phase loss protection, over current protection, low voltage protection, high and low voltage protection of the compressor, over temperature protection and high safety performance. The operation is simple and convenient.
