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.

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.

Rotary Drum Pasteurizer

The Rotary Drum Pasteurizer from Lyco relies upon our innovative rotating cylinder design to gently agitate products for rapid processing without product damage. First used in 1988, today’s system can handle varying sized 5 and 10 pound pouches providing perfectly uniform process results. Our pasteurizer meets the high level of USDA/MID sanitation design features. The single, major rotating component doesn’t damage pouches or wear out, for longer product life.

Specialty/Other

Lyco Manufacturing creates equipment with the versatility to serve the needs of multiple categories within the food and beverage industry. Within the wine industry for example, Lyco manufactures equipment designed to help streamline the manufacturing process. Our screens are used to strain wine must from the skins, seeds and fruit stems or pomace. Our equipment will capture the higher percentage of solids in a more precision way than other types of screening systems.

Lyco is known for making rugged precision made equipment that is manufactured to the highest standards for performance, quality, safety and return on investment. Being heavy and precise is what make Lyco machines have lower maintenance costs and longer life.
