PXBSBC Series Blancher - Spray Belt System with Water Cooling

This popular model can be used for many vegetables. Separate hot and cold water is applied to the product as it moves through the system.

Product Description

This popular model is our most requested.  It is our most recommended blancher solution, mainly because of how many different vegetables it will work with.

  • Separate hot and cold water is applied to the product as it moves through the system
  • Water evenly spreads product across the belt
  • Hot water / steam is sprayed onto the product, while advancing at the programmed belt speed
  • Next, cold water ceases the heating process and cools the blanched product
  • Controls enable you to set your own parameters for water temperatures, belt speed and water consumption
  • Blanching water is prepared in a mixing tank applying a combination of steam and cold water to achieve your recipe
  • Cooling temperatures are set by that of the water source

Our blanchers are designed and constructed with hygiene, ease of cleaning and ergonomics in mind. Primary material is 304 stainless steel, and plastic elements are used only where they make sense. Pieces that come into contact with the product are all built from food-grade materials.

• Product spreading assembly
• Modular belt with side walls type SG for transport
• Hot water spraying unit (sprayers, pumps, valves, nozzles etc.)

  • The device has an installed air-trapping system, on the entry of the product into a blanching zone
  • *1 When non-calibrated product is blanched, small sized vegetables will be over blanched
  • *2 The product specific weights in kg/massumed for calculations are: green peas – 750; cut green beans – 540, cauliflower – 390, broccoli – 340, Brussels sprout – 400
  • *3 The above capacity refers to typical green peas layer thickness of 100 – 120 mm. In the case of products having low weight by volume e.g. cauliflower or broccoli, the product layer at the end of the feeding location can be up to 200 mm, which doubles the machine theoretical capacity
