Electric Motors/Power (dehydrator)
I have a small business and i am going to use a dehydrator on regular basis : 18hours to 21hours per day.
The machines that i have chosen are not specified to be for commercial purposes.
The one to be for commercial purposes have a Power:600 watt
-The one that i have chosen has also a Power: 600 watt
Besides other considerations Timer, number of trays, digital controler. I am choosing the second one because of the price is less expensive.
My main concern is the POWER, does an equipment can be used 18 to 22 hours per day with a 600 watts power system?
Does 600 watts determine the capacity of the machine? can i use it everyday?
600 watts can be used continously so long as there is a fan behind the heating element to dissipate the heat.
eg: the hot plate on a stove gets red hot. these are about 800watts. The pot on it absorbs the heat and prevents the element from burning out .
If you use a hot plate behind the cabinet, put a fan on it and let the heat flow into the cabinet. The hot plate wont burn out. Or use a 600 watt portable heater with a fan on it already set up .
hope this helps .
