Thermal-Flow™

Cool more efficiently with Lyco’s exclusive Thermal-Flow™ system which involves a two stage cooker followed by a two stage cooler. As heat is pulled from the product during cooling it is captured and sent to the first stage of the cooker which pre-heats incoming product reducing energy needs by a remarkable amount.

Thermal-Flow™

Lyco’s exclusive Thermal-Flow™ system is a two-zone blancher followed by a two-zone cooler. A remarkable amount of heat is removed from the product during cooling and is sent back to the preheat zone of the blancher to reduce energy demands. Similar concepts have been around for decades using one long belt with water deluge blanching on the front half and water deluge cooking on the second half. Belts stretch, fail and are very difficult to clean. They commonly have as many as (22) hydro pumps down the length of the machine. Rotary Drum machines cost less, never wear out, and are easier to clean with a clean in place system. Between up front cost, reducing cleaning time and lower maintenance, Thermal-Flow is the best choice.

 

Vapor-Flow®

Vapor-Flow Steam Blanchers can switch over from steam to water cooking by simply turning a valve and draining the water from the tank. Water blaching hydrates products, but steam cooking uses 50% less energy and 90% less water. Steam can also increase recovery by 1 to 3% by leaching out fewer solids and nutrients.

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.

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.

Double Drum Wastewater Screen

Processors can gain significant savings with the Double Drum Screen two-in-one screening system to reduce industrial waste and increase product recovery. The Double Drum screen combines .080″ primary and .020″ secondary screening into one machine. Operators can save space, costs and time by eliminating the need for two single-stage screens. Effective with poultry, vegetables, potatoes, fruit or snack food processing, the Double Drum screen offers durable, rugged construction and an established reputation for successful, reliable use in the industry. Users call this the best wastewater screen in the world.

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 Blancher

Since 1985 Lyco Mfg. has been the most innovative company in the food industry. Our blanchers, cookers and coolers are the most advanced, state-of-the-art machines in the world. We’ve increased capacity, reduced process times, and eliminated under-cooking and over-cooking and reduced cooling times by 40% in rotary drum machines. Lyco designs use less energy, less water and produce higher quality in a smaller footprint.

Pasta and Rice can be cooled from 200° to 40°F in less than 30 seconds with our newest EASY-FLOW COOLERS.
