Mepaco, the food processing group of Apache Stainless Equipment Corporation, has three cookers available for testing as a courtesy to customers. A 50 gal single agitated ThermaBlend Cooker A 75 gal double agitated ThermaBlend Cooker A small continuous cooker The ThermaBlend “batch” Cooker offers a superior thermal processing solution with excellent cooking, cooling and blending characteristics. It is engineered for long lasting service for large-scale cooking applications. The Continuous Cooker is used where batch cooking is not applicable. The equipment offers a variety of processing options, including the use of steam, water and oil cooking medias. In utilizing the test cookers, Mepaco can conduct time studies and prove-out product integrity and production efficiencies. Mepaco uses the data to determine adjustment to horsepower, BTU’s, number of injectors and other performance criteria. The test results are scalable to maximize the efficiency of a larger system. There is no cost to use our test unit. Customers typically pay for freight and replacement of parts in the event of loss or damage. If a technician is required, Mepaco simply asks for travel/lodging expenses for that service person. For more information on the ThermaBlend unit, click here!
