Heat pump biltong drying unit

General Information


An energy efficient, wall mounted, heat pump biltong drying unit with a drying capacity of ± 200 kg wet meat over a 4-to-5-day period. The unit is ideal for mounting inside an existing thermally insulated room.


  • 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 2224U unit caters for all of these and with the expandable modular design makes it a very popular choice for startup businesses with future expansion in mind.
