Cooker-Cooler

Combination blancher/cooker-coolers were first designed in 1995 for blanching and cooling pasta, rice and vegetables. The basic process differences between a blancher, cooker or pasteurizer are retention times and operating temperatures. Lyco Cooker-Coolers have the option of doors in the cylinders and clean-in-place manifolds in the cover, the open center flights, and the tank sides. Our combination cooker/coolers have lower maintenance costs and take up much less room than two separate machines and a conveyor in between. The single CIP System cleans both hot and cold zones. Save major floor space with this design.

Micro Drum

Processors can gain significant savings with the Micro Drum Screen system by reducing industrial waste and increasing product recovery. Lyco’s Micro Drum removes particles as small as .008″ – 60% smaller than the .020″ particle removal for typical screens. Test one of our Micro Drums and prove it to yourself.

Single Drum Wastewater Screen

Processors can gain significant savings with our Single Drum Wastewater Screen to help reduce industrial waste and increase product recovery. Efficiently performs liquid/solid separation for red meat, pork, poultry, seafood or vegetables. Wedge-wire screens offer greater cleaning efficiencies, or reduce water requirements with an optional, patented Traveling Spray CIP option. More operators rely on Lyco’s Single Drum Wastewater Screen than any other type. Cast Stainless running rings last forever.

Sealed Drum Separator

Sealed drum separator features enclosed construction that contains odors, improves liquid recovery and aids in temperature control. Perfect for rendering operations, this system effectively applies heat to extract moisture and separate fat, producing superior crax to the press versus a perk pan, to create rich, granular meals for animal feed or other industrial use. Drum slot spacing offers solids removal down to 0.020 to help reduce insoluble impurities and avoid clogs in screens, nozzles and other equipment further down the processing line. Captures a greater amount of solids to reduce waste and increase product recovery.

Stationary Screen

The Lyco Manufacturing Stationary Screen de-waters products, such as beans and vegetables, or can perform rough screening of wastewater. The wastewater function cleans up pea, bean, corn, potato or meat waste. Sanitary construction and a tilt out screen make cleanup a quick process. High-quality craftsmanship guarantees long life and performance.

Water Reuse System

Lyco’s Water Reuse System can save money, cut cleaning and maintenance time, and reduce consumption of water resources — up to 15 million gallons per year. In poultry plants, this revolutionary system removes solids so that water can be re-used and sent back for prior processing steps. The system’s small footprint makes it ideal for many water reuse applications. A 200 GPM saving can return more than $150,000 a year.

New Sanitary Zero Maintenance Screens feature covers that open for full access, Clean-In-Place system with spray balls and rapid-change dual canister filters with automated purging.
Systems are available for 50 gpm – 400 gpm.
