Separating the processing characteristics of Hami melons and comparing them with different types of Hami melons, the main and secondary factors that affect the fruit moisture content are type, temperature, maturity, and color protection solution. The optimal parameter is the starting temperature of 45 ℃. Placing melon slices in saline water can better maintain the fruit moisture content.
First, the temperature is set to 45℃ to ensure the heating effect, the humidity is controlled at about 25%, and the drying time is in 1 hour. The oven has reached a certain temperature, then the temperature is set to 47℃, the humidity is 20%, the drying time is 1 hour, to maintain the color of cantaloupe. Then the temperature is raised to 53℃, the humidity is set to 15%, the drying time is 1 hour, and then there is a slight drying effect. Then set the temperature to 57℃, the humidity is about 10%, continue to dry for 1 hour, the temperature is set to 63℃, the humidity is 6%, set the time for half an hour, check the color and shape of the cantaloupe slices, you can turn off, and the cantaloupe slices are removed from the drying room.

After drying, the moisture content reaches below 6%, and the fresh to dry ratio is around 10:1, which can meet the requirements of grinding. This drying takes nearly 5 hours.
