MODEL 2224

Heat pump biltong drying unit

General Information


An energy efficient, heat pump biltong drying cabinet with a drying capacity of ± 200 kg wet meat over a 4 to 5 day period. Stainless Steel 304 hanging rods included. Option to supply stainless steel drying trays for thinner pieces like chili bites.


  • The drying cycle time is dependent on the physical characteristics of the meat (thickness of the pieces, type of meat, casings associated with dried wors / jerky and packing arrangements).


  • Your entry level, cheaper “Heat and Vent” system which uses heating elements combined with an extract fan can be very limited with no control over the quality of Biltong being produced. With these systems the outside weather conditions has a significant effect on the overall drying time and quality of Biltong. It is not recommended for mass Biltong production and more suited for homemade requirements where timeframe and quality not as important.


  • For superior quality biltong it is important to have a closed drying system (no influence due to outside weather conditions) with complete control over the temperature and relative humidity during the drying process. The Model 2224 drying unit caters for all these which makes it a very popular choice for producing superior quality biltong.
