Pressure-Flow® Makes Fully Cooked IQF Quality Product

Pressure-Flow® Can Eliminate Retorting

The Pressure-Flow® machine was specifically designed to hydrate, par-cook or fully cook dry beans, grains and other particulates, offering processors a continuous first-in/first-out pressure cooker.

Suggested Applications

How it Works

Product is continuously fed through a valve arrangement that allows product to enter the pressurized vessel while maintaining pressure in the cooker. Processing under pressure achieves elevated temperatures which provide many benefits to the product. A faster cook is only one benefit of many. Product passes through the machine on a first-in/first out way submerged in water and suspended in motion by Lyco’s patented Hydro-Flow technology which gently exposes each particle of food to the same treatment. Product exits the pressurized chamber through a valve system similar to the infeed. This patented design utilizes Lyco ‘s new Clean-Flow® system inside the pressure vessel which has a faster more thorough Clean-in Place system contained within it. The process time, temperature, water level, along with all other process conditions, are controlled by a PLC process management system.
