Confectionery drying equipment The production of baked confectioneries such as shrimp senbei (rice crackers) faces a host of problems. These include long dry-ing time (about 50 minutes) that leads to a deterioration in the rice cracker avor and the dropping and cracking of rice crack-ers during delivery for seasoning. Chubu Electric Power’s tech-nology signicantly shortens drying times and prevents the deterioration of avor as well as the cracking of confectionery by using “drying with infrared rays and hot air,” “cooling with a blower fan,” and “seasoning with a sponge roller.”Introducing Case Studies of Solutions Developed in Collaboration with CustomersSilicone resin coating spray deviceSilicone resin coating methods consist of brushing and spraying. However, when using the spraying method, the silicone composition and the hard-ener are not uniformly mixed and quality is inconsistent, with a main prob-lem being that thick application is difcult due to hardening from the surface owing to a reaction with humidity in the air. Chubu Electric Power’s technology enables uniform and thick sili-cone coating by utilizing a silicone resin mixed solution that uniformly mixes the silicone composition and hardening agent and by using com-pressed air containing moisture for spraying while also inducing a hard-ending reaction.Intellectual PropertyPolicy on intellectual propertyU Create intellectual properties that enhance corporate valueU Safely protect and effectively use intellectual propertiesU Respect the intellectual property rights of othersThe results that the Chubu Electric Power Group produces in its business activities are important intellectual properties.
