Working Process of Non-fried Noodle Production Line
Non-fried instant noodle production line is consists of molding machine, cooking machine, cutting machine, air heater, microwave drying machine and cooling and packing machine.
Non-fried instant noodle production line manufacturing process is Knead dough–curing-rolling-cutting into strips folded wave shape-cooking-cutting and folding-microwave drying-cooling and packaging
1. Knead dough: 40% of water content control in flour dosage, water temperature can adjust according to the seasons.
2. Curing: curing condition including temperature, humidity, and time. Humidity is maintained at70%-80%,temperature is generally not more than25℃,the time is 30-40minutes is appropriate.
3. Rolling: after curing, the dough first through two group of rollers pressure into two dough belts, then by the composite machine to composite for twice together into one dough belt
4. Cutting into strips folded wave shape: noodles and forming network with linear velocity ratio is adjusted to 6-8
5. Cooking: put the noodles into the cooking machine for cooking about 2.5-8 minutes.
6. Microwave ripening: use the microwave drying equipment to ripen and puff the cooked noodles.
7. Cooling and packaging: Cool the instant noodles to room temperature and then pack them.
