This system (see video link) was designed to increase capacity and flexibility for processing sauces and soups for a commercial food manufacturer. The Column Dumper feeds the ThermaBlend TM Cooker with recipe ingredients. The 200 gallon ThermaBlend TM with heat transfer jacket, cooks the product while being gently agitated by dual ribbons. After the batch is cooked, it is released into a drop tank which is jacketed for maintaining temperature and includes an agitator for continued dispersion of particulates. The batches are then pumped to downstream packaging operations. The sanitary design platform allows safe and easy access for maintenance and sanitation. For maximum flexibility, the system allows for two different batch processes or doubling batches to accommodate production demands. Visit www.mepaco.net for more information!
