It can be brewed in hot water to prepare noodle soup as well as directly eaten as crunch snacks. After being rehydrated, the instant noodles become soft and flexible with nice mouthfeel.  To operate our instant noodle machine flash fryer, we recommend us to use 24℃ palm oil as raw material.

The instant noodle machines are applicable in the circumstance below:

Working Principles Of Instant Noodle Production Line

The FBN instant noodle production line is composed of 14 components of unit operations and 3 sets of electric control panels.  Firstly wheat flour,  a right amount of water and some other additives are mixed in the dough kneading machine, where the materials are turned into a kind of elastic, plastic, and ductile dough by continuous stirring; and then the dough is pressed by multiple pairs of rollers, the dough becomes a consistent dough sheet. The sheet in turn is cut into noodles by a pair of noodle cutter rollers. The cut noodles are dropped the mesh conveyor belt; and because line speed of the mesh belt of the conveyor is slower then the linear speed of the dough sheet, the densely waved noodle belts are formed, before they were transferred into the tunnel-steamer of 95℃—105℃. For about 78 seconds’ steaming, the starch in the noodles are gelatinized and the protein denatured. That is, the raw noodles are turned into precooked noodles. After cooked, noodles are quickly cooled down by the fan installed upper the exit of the steamer, so that the surface’s hot steam vaporizes, and the noodles become less sticky. The following procedures are that the cutting and folding machine will slice the noodle belts into event pieces and fold them into double layer noodle blocks. The noodle blocks are divided and placed in noodle trays and are conveyed into the automatic-fryer, where the wet noodle blocks are fried and dehydrated for 65~90 seconds. At last, the noodles are conveyed into the cooling chamber to be cooled for about 2 minutes. We therefore get the end products of fragrant fried instant noodles.   

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit One: Saline Alkali Solution Mixing Device

Salt-liquid is used for dissolving additives of salt and soda. The mixer quickens the dissolving of the additives and maintains the liquid’s consistent concentration.

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Two: Quantitative Sprinkling Device

Quantitative sprinkling device is used for automatic ration control by liquid level quantification of saline alkali solution. The electromagnetic valves control the sprinkling of saline solution into the double-shaft dough mixer kneading machine.

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Three: Double-shaft Mixer

The materials are mixed by the stirrer fixed on the mixing axle. The mixed contents include  flour, water and additives. While the protein in wheat flour sops up water and expand into a three-dimensional gluten lattice structure with certain flexibility, ductility, glutinosity and plasticity. 

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Four: Ripening Feeder

"Ripening” means dough sitting. Mixing under low speed releases the stress in the dough produced by the strikes of the mixing stirrer, the squeezing effect within dough mass, so as to make the dough has a steady and stable inner structure.

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Five: Compound Roller

To press the loose dough into a condensed dough sheet, as necessary preparations made for the following process of the Continuous Rolling.

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Six: Continuous Roller And Noodle Cutter Rollers

The continuous rollers is to press the dough sheet thinner and to enhance its tenacity and toughness. The finished dough sheet is continuously fed into the noodle cutter rollers and is cut into noodle strips.

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Eight: Cut Off And Sorting Machine

The cutting and sorting machine is an important integrated device in the instant noodle production line. It cuts the cooked noodle belts coming out of the instant noodle steaming machine to a certain length, folds it in half to form noodle blocks, and then transfers the four rows of noodle belts into eight rows.

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Nine: Fryer

This machine is used to deep-fry the cut-shaped noodle blocks at high temperature to quickly dehydrate and dry them to form crispy and fragrant instant noodles.

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Ten:  Aligning Machine

The noodle blocks unloaded from the fryer are neatly arranged in rows at a certain distance, and then transported to the cooler.

Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Eleven: Cooler

The cooler is to cool the neatly arranged noodles after frying to ensure the storage and quality of the product.

Fried & Dried Instant Noodle Machine

In every step of the production process, Heshan uses advanced technology. There are two major types of instant noodle production lines: one uses the deep frying process and the complete set of instant noodle machines is known as fried instant noodles production line; the other uses hot air drying process and the instant noodles machine assembly is called non-fried instant noodles production line. On the other hands, dry rice vermicelli noodles are always produced using hot air drying methods. Heshan is one of the earliest manufacturers to provide automatic instant rice vermicelli machines. If the wet fresh noodles, usually refrigerated are to be sold directly, you can use our fresh instant noodle machines.

🍜 Ramen Instant Noodle Machine

We are fried instant noodle machine manufacturer and our machines use use high temperatures to fry the noodles to remove moisture, making it possible to completely dehydrate the noodles. Moreover, after frying, it also forms a sort of micro-structure on the surface of the noodles, so that the dry noodles are easier to rehydrate when they are brewed in hot water. 

 We have built many turnkey plants with our instant noodle machines installed in China, India and all over the world.

Features Of The Heshan Fried Instant Noodle Processing Machines: 

Fully automatic control system using Siemens PLC.

Heshan instant noodle machines are highly automatic that can produce up to a million cups or bags of instant noodles per day. Only two operators are needed to run a Heshan instant noodle machine assembly.

Both fried instant noodles and non-fried instant noodles must go through the pressing and cutting process during the production process. However, the difference in the final drying method creates the distinction between "fried" and "non-fried". Fried instant noodles are made by steaming and frying shredded noodles to fix the shape of the noodles; non-fried instant noodles are generally made by micro-expanding or hot air drying processes.

From the perspective of production process, the difference between fried and non-fried instant noodle processing is mainly reflected in the "drying" process. The former is frying while the latter uses hot air drying process.

In terms of texture and taste, fried instant noodles, after rehydration have a soft texture and rich flavor; non-fried instant noodles have a light texture and are not oily when eaten. The main nutrients in instant noodles are carbohydrates and protein. Whether it is fried instant noodles or non-fried instant noodles, there is not much difference in the content of these two categories; but there is a difference in moisture content and fat content. The moisture content of fried instant noodles is less than 10% and the fat content is about 20%; the moisture content of non-fried instant noodles is about 14.5% and the fat content is 4%-5%.

🍲 Dried Instant Noodle Machine

We built several turnkey plants of this type in India, Indonesia and Germany.

Heshan® non-fried instant noodle machine uses hot air to "blow-dry" the precooked noodles instead of frying them. We provide two types of non-fried instant noodle machines: 

One with a drying temperature of around 80 degrees Celsius, used to produce easy-to-cook instant noodles, and the other uses specially designed steaming and drying process to produce instant noodles that can be rehydrated and ready to eat by soaking the dry noodle block in hot water for 5 minutes.

Features of  Heshan heated-air-dried instant noodle machines:

The non-fried dry hakka instant noodle processing machine assembly features the batch high pressure steaming unit operation consists of the steps of dough kneading, dough setting, compound and continuous dough sheet rolling/pressing, noodle strips slitting, noodle strips length cutting and noodle blocks boxing, steaming trays stacking, batch pressure cooking, heated-air-drying, cooling, finally packaging.  The complete set of the hakka noodle machine is either fully automated such as dough making and noodle strips cutting, or manually assisted mechanized operation like the loading the layer stacks of noodle tray arrays into the pressure cookers.

In the dry hokka noodle machine assembly, flour and water are mixed, and after automatic dough making, dough resting, compound pressing and continuous rolling to form the dough sheet, which is cut into noodle shreds and automatically put inside the plastic boxes; after stacking, they are sent into the high pressure steamers of the instant noodle machine assembly. After steaming for 2 or 3 Minutes, the stretchiness and flexibility of the steamed noodles are significantly increased and products are more thoroughly sterilized, extending the shelf life. After the noodles are steamed, they are placed in the metal noodle boxes, which carry the noodles into the heated-air dryer for drying. The drying time is about 40 minutes. Output capacity of one hakka instant noodle dryer is from 250 kg to 1200 kg per hour.

Due to the use of autoclave cooking instant noodle machine, the degree of ɑ gelatinization is effectively improved. The product has a beautiful appearance, is slightly yellowish and semitransparent; the re-hydrated or cooked noodles have an elastic and refreshing texture; the noodle soup is not muddy and highly appetizing.

Extruders can process almost all grains and are used as starch/rice noodle processing machines,  starch/rice vermicelli machines, as well as the wheat flour ramen instant noodles making machines. The extrusion type noodle processing machine uses a twin-screw extruder to press a dough of wheat flour, starch, rice flour and various grain to pass a die to form different types of noodles. Heshan® extrusion type rice noodle processing machines assembly is a automated processing line to make rice vermicelli noodles, rice sticks, and instant rice noodles from  granular rice and other grains. 

The die plates of the extruders of our rice vermicelli machines and rice noodles making machines can be quickly disassembled and assembled from the side installation port. Most our competitors require manual removal of several screws from the bottom before the rice noodle making machine die plate can be removed. Disassembly and assembly are very labor-intensive (it takes about 1 Hour). Our rice noodle making machine extruders are equiped with an easy-to-pull-out die plate and a special pulling-out-mechanism that can automatically replace the rice noodle making machine extruder die plate. The procedure can be completed in about 10 minutes. The rice noodle making machine extruder dies are often clogged with the feed debris so that die plate needs to be replaced regularly. Therefore, rice noodle factories urgently need to solve this problem. Our rice noodle extruders with the easy-to-pull-out die plates were developed under this situation.
