TSM D-20 Stainless NSF Commercial Dehydrator

The NSF-certified stainless steel TSM D-20 dehydrator is manufactured in the USA to meet the needs of small commercial food drying operations. Its programmable solid state control system allows you to create up to six custom drying programs, with each program consisting of as many as three separate temperature, time and fan-speed steps.

Custom programs let you tailor settings to the exact needs of the food or other material you're drying, and to process repeat batches without having to re-enter settings. A large touch screen control and LCD digital display with easy to follow prompts makes it easy to select settings, and settings can be edited on-the-fly at any time.

The D-20 commercial dehydrator features 1" thick insulation on top, bottom and sides to increase operating efficiency, reducing your operating cost. It will achieve a temperature of 150° F in 3 hours or less for fast, efficient jerky drying. Air flow is from back to front for even results. The front door is a removable 2-piece unit, making it easier to clean. The inner portion of the front door channels moisture through the perforations, while the outer section creates a barrier which makes moisture collection possible. A hygrometer is included for monitoring humidity levels.

  • “In all my years of professional experience in kitchens you guys give the best customer service I've ever encountered. Having competent service staff from other companies willing to work as hard as we do is extremely underrated and very appreciated.”

    – Christian G., CA

The unit has 52 square feet of drying area on 20 large rectangular wire dehydrating racks. Fully electric operation. Smooth electronic control panel wipes clean with damp cloth. Dehydrator's internal temperature range is 84° to 180°F for safe & efficient drying of all types of food. Temperature is adjustable in 1° increments and is maintained to +/- 1° of the setting.

Spacing between racks is 1.25". Any number of racks can be removed to create a drying cavity with fewer racks but more space between racks.
