Suggested Applications

How it Works

Product is fed into the pressure vessel through a rotary valve. Inside the pressure vessel is Lyco’s remarkable Clean-Flow Cooker system which has many benefits, the most important of which is Hydro-Flow® Agitation. Water agitation keeps the product held in suspension and moving which has every particle of food being treated exactly the same. Dry beans can achieve 67% moisture and become fully cooked so retorting is not required. Product is continuously discharged from the pressurized process chamber through a different valve arrangement.
