Instant Noodle Production Line Unit Operation

The operation process of the instant noodle making is to mix flour and water to make a dough, then press the dough into a continuous thin sheet and cut it into noodles; then pre-cook the noodles, and shape them into noodle blocks. Finally dehydrate the noodle blocks either by means of flash frying or hot air drying. Read more...

Industrial Noodle Machine Unit I - Dough Kneading

This is to Mix flour with water, stir and knead to make a dough. Kneading is an important part of noodle making to create structure and strength in the dough. Flour contains two types of proteins that combine to form gluten. After the ingredients are mixed, the gluten protein particls are knotted together to creates the elastic texture in the dough. We provide both the vaccume dough mixer and the normal pressure dough mixer. This is the first step of the process of operation on the complete set of industrial noodle machines.

Industrial Noodle Machine Unit II - Aging

The short rest is to allow the liquid in the dough to redistribute. It helps ensure good hydration of the flour and improves gluten structure. As the dough rests, its characteristics change from loose and soft to firm and elastic, making it easier to work with in the subsequent stages of rolling the dough into continuous sheets and cutting into noodle strips. This process step improves the quality of the raw materials over time and is a continuation of the kneading process. .

Instant Noodle Machine Unit III - Calendering

The purpose of calendering is to enhance the uniform distribution of the gluten network structure in the dough and shape the dough into a continuous dough sheet. The dough enters a pre-press and is pressed into thick sheets, which are then further processed in a compound calender where the continous sheet is thinned. A series of continuous rollers press the dough sheet to the desired thickness.

Industrial Noodle Machine Unit V - Cooking

When raw noodles are heated for a certain period of time, the starch in the noodles will be gelatinized by the heat, that is, the starch in the beta state will be transformed into the alpha state on the complete set of industrial noodle machines. At the same time, the protein in the raw noodles is denatured by heat. This makes the noodles become cooked. Process requirements: The alpha degree of fried instant noodles is above 85%.

Steamer is the standard instant noodle cooking machine. We provide both multi-layer steamers and single-layer steamers. Boiling cookers may also be used in fresh instant noodle making and Yee Mee instant noodle processing.

Industrial Noodle Machine Unit VI - Noodle Length Cutting and Placement Noodles in Trays

The cooked noodles coming out of the instant noodle steaming machine are cut to set lengths, folded in half to form square noodle blocks or converted into round shape; and then the noodle blocks are arranged in rows and sent to boxes, known as noodle trays to be ready to transfer to the deep frying machine or the heated air dryer.

Instant Noodle Machine Unit VII - Optional Deep Frying

Place the quantitatively cut noodle blocks in the closed space formed by the noodle trays with lids, and continuously pass the noodles through the high-temperature oil tank. Water in the noodle blocks is quickly vaporized, forming porous structures in the noodles; and during the process, the gelatinization degree of the starch in noodles is stabilize, and the shape of noodle blocks are fixed; and the protein is deeply denatured, then the flavor of the noodles is improved.

Industrial Noodle Machine Unit VIII - Optional Heated Air Drying

Optionally the dehydration of precooked noodles takes place in the heated air dryer. It is said that hot-air-dried instant noodles are healthier than fried instant noodles. We provide advanced modern multi-layer continuous dryers witch takes much smaller space. Some processes may also use the batch operation dryer for the complete set of industrial noodle machines.
