Chill-Flow™ Pouch Cooler

Prior to 1988 most pouch cooking was done on water deluge belts or spiral freezers. Chill-Flow™ Pouch Coolers are a variation of our blancher/cooker/cooler designs used for the first time 28 years ago for cooling vegetables. Today they are used for cooling many different pouch sizes of sauces, pizza sauce, chowders, and soups. Pouches may be small packs of restaurant ketchup or up to 5 or 10 pounds. 40°F. final temperatures are common requirements. Submerged water cooling is the most efficient and economical method of cooling volumes of pouched food products.

Food safety is improved as pouched product passes through the bacterial danger zone of 130°F (54.4°C) to 80°F (26.7°C) twice as quickly as conventional belt coolers or static water tank designs. We built and sold the first Lyco pouch cooler over 32 years ago, and it is still running reliably every day.

72″ dia. x 8′ or 12′ long units available.


As the dynamics of pet ownership evolve and animal companions become more humanized, their nutritional needs remain unique to their individual species. As such, rendered fats and proteins and the nutrition they supply suit the needs of dogs and cats in particular. Good manufacturing practices translate into fine quality feed ingredients for the pet food market for kibble manufacture and other types of foods and treats. In this instance, renderers play critical roles turning what might be unwanted byproducts from the food stream into value-added ingredients for pet food and feed processors. Traditional pork, chicken or beef to lamb, turkey, salmon or other types of fish can help supply the raw material for a beneficial and profitable pet food ingredient line. It is critical to screen out foreign objects and capture the right solids to create safe and nutritious products that will also help capture the most available revenue from your plant’s stream of byproducts.

Lyco Manufacturing supplies screens built with rugged durability and designed for precision and safe capture of solids down to 0.020 inches. All of our equipment is manufactured to meet the highest standards for performance, quality, safety and return on investment. Call us for a demonstration.
