Lime Dehydrator

Lime is a versatile citrus fruit known for its tangy flavor and aromatic zest. Dried lime, also known as lime slices or lime zest, is a popular ingredient used in various culinary applications, including seasoning, baking, and beverage production. Drying lime not only extends its shelf life but also concentrates its flavor, making it a valuable addition to any commercial kitchen or food processing facility.

How to dehydrate lime

Drying Lime with IKE Heat Pump Dryer

1. Preparation: Customers can begin by using a cleaning machine to thoroughly wash fresh, ripe limes under running water to remove any dirt or debris. The cleaned limes can then be transferred to a peeling machine for efficient peeling, followed by a slicing machine for uniform slicing or zesting.

2. Loading the Dryer: Once sliced or zested, arrange the lime slices evenly on the drying trays of the IKE Heat Pump Dryer. Ensure that there is ample space between the slices to allow for proper airflow and thorough drying.

3. Setting the Temperature and Time: Set the temperature of the IKE Heat Pump Dryer to a low to moderate heat setting, typically around 40-50°C (104-122°F). Adjust the drying time according to the thickness of the lime slices and the desired level of dryness.

4. Drying Process: Activate the IKE Heat Pump Dryer to start the drying process. The dryer's heat pump technology gently removes moisture from the lime slices, preserving their color, flavor, and nutritional content.

5. Monitoring: Regularly monitor the progress of the drying process to ensure uniform drying. Rotate the trays if necessary to promote even drying. The lime slices are ready when they are completely dry to the touch and brittle.

6. Packaging: Once fully dried, customers can use a packaging machine to seal the dried lime slices in airtight packaging. Proper packaging helps maintain the quality and freshness of the dried lime slices during storage and transportation.


With the efficiency and reliability of the IKE Heat Pump Dryer, customers can easily and effectively dry lime slices in large quantities to meet the demands of commercial food processing operations. In addition to the dryer, IKE also offers cleaning machines, peeling machines, slicing machines, and packaging machines to provide comprehensive solutions for food processing needs.

Whether used as a seasoning, garnish, or flavoring agent, dried lime adds a burst of citrusy goodness to a wide range of culinary creations.
