Lyco’s EZ Clean 36 x 8 Cooker is ideal for smaller processors who currently batch cook and want to upgrade to a continuous cooking process. Unlike batch operations, which require draining and filling for heating and cooling, continuous cooking delivers higher yields with less water than kettles used for blanching and cooking.
• Uniform heating improves consistency and product quality
• Starter flight and ending flight ensures first-in, first-out process control
• Minimize overcooking and undercooking – increase recovery 5-10%
• Reduce water and energy usage
The smaller design of the EZ Clean Cooker makes it an economical choice for processors who want to move to continuous processing to reduce labor, water and energy expenses.
The unit comes standard with 2-way flip top cover. The open design improves sanitation. Unlike the rotary drum cooker-cooler, the auger is open with no skin sheets. When cleaning, the auger can be raised to allow a gap between the auger and tank. Operators can easily flush out particulates at the end of the day or before product changeovers.
The machine’s simple design has four trunnion wheels, which minimizes maintenance. The control system uses Allen Bradley PLCs, HMIs and VFDs, which guarantee repeatability improved product quality.
