How It Works

vapor-flow diagram

  • Product is fed into in-feed flume
  • Product is augured through the cylinder for a given retention time
  • Steam is injected at the base of the cylinder at multiple points
  • Product exits the discharge chute

  • Small footprint – Uses 50% less energy than conventional belt cookers

Features

  • 2-in-1 – cooks with steam or water
  • High capacity throughput in less floor space
  • Easy to clean
  • Rapid change-over with the flip of a valve
  • Gentle stirring with first-in, first-out guarantees uniformity, unlike belt systems
