Automated Samples Saves Down Time

The integration of a Vacuum Sampling System in a Mixer / Blender is an efficient way to take product samples. There is no need for equipment and production stops because the vacuum sampler is automatic and can be delivered at different intervals to provide a true test of product consistency.

Compared to manual sampling, the vacuum sampler is much safer for the operator.


Batch Cooking and Chilling that Tastes Like It Came from Mom’s Kitchen

In the process of manufacturing fruit pie filling, the ThermaBlend™ first cooks the product to 185°F; then cools it to the proper filling temperature of 75°F.

The cook step and the chill step take approximately 30 – 40 minutes each, which is critical to maintaining product integrity and reaching the production goals of this application.

While focusing on production, yields and product integrity, the ThermaBlend™ provides an effective solution with key features, including:

  • Dual zone ASME wrap-around heat jacket for full or partial batches
  • Proven effective, patented scraper system
  • Agitator design that provides homogeneous blending while minimizing shear
  • Electropolished, non-stick product surface
  • Flexible controls with recipe programming to optimize the performance of the ThermaBlend™
