About the selecting, you can choose different varies of banana, but banana's degree of ripeness is limited. The under-ripe or green banana could be used for making banana chips.
The unripe banana is hard to be peeled. The pre-treating procedure is putting the banana into hot water for cooking 2-3 minutes, the next step is placing the banana into cold water and the pre-treated banana will become much easier to be peeled by hand.Or you can peel banana by a banana peeling machine.
The peeled banana will be sliced by slicing machine with the diagonal cutting knife into banana chips, and the machine's cutting angle is customized. After slicing, the processed banana chips have a smooth surface without mechanical damage. Banana chips slicing machine is regarded as the most advanced circle cutting equipment at present time.
The sliced banana chips then will be blanched for protecting banana color and taste. The blanching time is around 20-30 minutes.Blanching can inactivate the enzyme and the banana will have superior color and flavor.
Next, the chips need be dehydrated by TS800 dehydrating machine. It is tested that chips after dewatering are easier to be fried. TS800dehydrating machine adopts a physical method of centrifugal dewatering to remove water on the banana surface.
Then, the dehydrated chips will be fried by food frying equipment. This machine has various heating methods such as by coal, electricity, natural gas, and liquefied petroleum gas, etc. Coal heat can be used without limits, the electrical heat is cleaner than coal heat, natural gas is space-saving While liquefied petroleum gas can produce a high power content. People can choose their favorite heating ways among the four types.
The fried chips will be through deoiling to remove the excess oil on the banana. The deoiling machine has the same centrifugal principle with dewatering machine, the oil is removed by high rotating in the barrel. Food deoiling can reduce transportation cost and prolong shelf life, the deoiling machine is widely applied in removing oil of banana chips, potato chips, fried peanuts, fried beans, fried meatball,etc, often match with food frying equipment.
Customers can choose to add more flavor into banana chips, the BL1000 disc banana chips flavoring machine has an attractive look and effective output, which is suitable for seasoning chips, fries, instant noodles, broad bean, various puffed food G spicy food in small,medium food processing factory.
Packaging can improve food's storing time, under sealed or vacuum conditions, food's flavor and quality won't be destroyed. DZ-600/2S packaging machine has both vacuum sealing way and nitrogen filing way. Besides banana chips, DZ-600/2S vacuum-nitrogen packaging machine has packed various puffed food, fried food, seafood, drug, chemical material, etc.
