Suggested Applications

How it Works

Product moves in a continuous stream into the in-feed flume. Then product is transported through the cylinder for a retention time that will vary, according to the type of vegetable being processed and/or your internal specifications. We leverage our intimate knowledge of blanching equipment coupled with design expertise to calculate steam injection points that meet the exact heat load demanded by your application. This process ensures a thorough blanching. Reap the benefits of a precisely engineered system designed to produce a quality, uniformly heated product with less damage and waste.
