The innovative, state-of-the-art, computer controlled EXCALIBUR® Commercial 2-Zone Dehydrator is fully manufactured in the United States from high quality stainless steel and NSF Approved. EXCALIBUR® Commercial Dehydrators are built for the commercial requirements of orchards, vineyards, organic farms, bakeries, restaurants, raw food kitchens, laboratories, etc. Smaller dehydrators are great for home or starting a business but quickly become time consuming and tiring once your market grows. The benefits of purchasing an Excalibur® Commercial Dehydrator from Zesty By Nature will far exceed the costs of doing batch after batch of dried food in a small machine. If you are ready to increase production and need a larger capacity dehydrator, the solution is here.

Design Superiority – Excalibur’s cumulative dehydrating knowledge has gone into the development of the commercial line of NSF dryers. Our innovative multiple motor design creates precision airflow and increased thermal control. Our high quality brushed stainless steel units have special features such as:

  • Front Door Dampers – to increase humidity
  • Removable Front Door – for easy cleaning
  • State of the Art Custom Computer Process Controls – Ethernet controls also available
  • Redundancy Features – to minimise down time
  • Removable Rack Weldments

Broad Versatility – With the 2 Zone Production Model you have the ability to stager batches or dry different products separately from each other. This innovative Dual Zone design gives you the ability to use different temperatures in each zone and increase the versatility of the unit.

Efficiency – Our 2 Zone Production Model is designed with efficiency in mind. It comes with standard commercial size drying racks which make it easy to pre-stage and unload product using readily available restaurant carts. In fact, our design is so efficient it dries twice the product as other commercial models while only using about ½ the electricity.

Affordability – The Excalibur NSF 2 Zone Production Model has the most drying area per dollar than any other model available.

Ease of Cleaning – Excalibur does a lot of cleaning in their state of the art test kitchen so they know how important it is to have commercial appliances that are easy to clean. Their commercial units have the following easy to clean features:

  • Removable doors
  • Smooth radius walls for easy wipe down – No sharp edges
  • Large NSF style wheels make it easy to move the unit to clean under and behind.
  • Back door opens fully to allow thorough cleaning of food zone.

Warranty – The commercial units are so well designed we, the Australian distributor of the Excalibur Dehydrators honour the 1 year limited manufacturer’s warranty.

Repair & Maintenance Service – It’s very rare that an Excalibur Dehydrator needs servicing. However, the innovative modular design, low cost of parts, and fast shipping makes repairs easy. If a service situation arises, Excalibur have assembled a Downtime Awareness Response Team (DART) who are available for technical support to fix any problems that arise or to help you set up a maintenance plan to ensure that your commercial units continue to run at peak.

*Excalibur recommends this unit to be hardwired by a qualified electrician and as such the warranty is void unless fitted in this way. The factory suggests a 30amp beaker be installed when the unit is hardwired.

What is NSF and why is it important?

The NSF Mark is your assurance that the product has been tested by one of the most respected independent certification companies in existence today, NSF International. NSF International is The Public Health and Safety Company™, providing public health and safety risk management solutions to companies, governments and consumers around the world.

Most importantly, NSF Certification is not a one-time activity. NSF does not just test a single model of a product and gives its okay. Their certification program requires regular on-site inspections of Excalibur’s manufacturing facilities. In addition, the commercial dehydrators are periodically re-tested against the requirements of the most current national health and safety standards.

Why do you need an NSF approved appliance for your business?

The NSF Certification mark ensures that your new commercial appliance has been inspected by a recognised organisation, as you potentially may be inspected by your local or state health department. Many inspectors look for the NSF Mark on your equipment. With equipment such as the Excalibur dehydrators that have passed through strict requirements and inspection, you have one less element to worry about.

How Excalibur® Can Help Your Business Grow

Increase ProductionIncrease productivity with an incredible 12.63m² of shelf space on 42 x 100% high grade stainless steel drying trays. Shelves measure approx 66cm x 45cm with 3.2cm space between and come standard with removable FDA Approved Polyscreen inserts. ParaflexxTM drying sheets are available as additional items.

Cost EffectiveThe unit draws an economical total of 4800 watts of single phase electricity. The factory suggests a 30 amp breaker be installed when the unit is hardwired into its location (must be properly installed by a qualified electrician). The temperature range for drying is between 21ºC and 82ºC. Repairs and maintenance can be carried out by the user, with further savings to the business. Eight small electric motors and heating elements run the 16.5cm fans inside; these are the same reliable units as found in our domestic appliances. The unit comes with a 3 Year Limited Manufacturer’s Warranty (to the initial retail purchaser) if properly installed by a qualified electrician.

Efficient This state of the art dehydration unit comes with a programmable digital Computer Control Unit that utilises Temperature Cycling Technology, allowing various Time/Temperature drying profiles and has automatic cool down/shut off feature so you no longer have to manually manipulate drying temperature or timer. The entire cabinet, inside and out, is constructed of stainless steel: welded and finished to strict NSF specifications to prevent food from getting caught between any seams. Doors, trays and tray supports are removable for easy cleaning as well as a hinged back assembly attached by wing nuts for easy access. This means less time cleaning and more time producing delicious dried food.

Food Health & Safety Standards – Excalibur® set the standard in food health and safety. Their commercial line of dehydrators leads the market for commercial businesses. Strict specifications must be met to achieve the NSF Approval Mark and FDA approval which means one less worry when meeting local Health & Safety regulations. Excalibur’s Tray Screen Material is made from FDA Approved Polypropylene #5 which is one of the safest plastics for direct food contact and the cabinet and trays are made from 100% High Grade Stainless Steel.

Shipping – Shipping of commercial units is by the purchaser although shipping can be quoted at a flat rate if required. The unit is well-packed and palletised.

The Solution to Your Growing Business NeedsThe entire cabinet, inside and out, is constructed of stainless steel: welded and finished to strict NSF specifications to prevent food from getting caught between any seams.

The Excalibur Commercial 2 Zone Unit has a Unique Adjustable Sliding Dampener installed in both doors. With proper use this dampener can be closed to retain moisture during the beginning of a drying process, assisting in the maintaining of a “WET HEAT” environment which is optimal for the destruction of harmful bacteria.

Doors, trays and tray supports, are removable for easy cleaning.

Motor and fan are connected to a hinged back assembly, which is held to the case with wing nuts, allowing easy access when cleaning.

Computerised digital readout, 99-hour timer, and 21ºC – 82ºC/70ºF – 180ºF temperature control with automatic shut off. This readout has adjustable: fan delay, alarm type and beeper cycle. User may also select the readout to display in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

Includes 42 x 100% stainless steel trays measuring approx 66cm x 45cm with 3.2cm space between trays and removable FDA approved polypropylene drying inserts.

1 Year Limited Warranty. If the unit is modified in any way the warranty is void.
