Our screw blancher series is optimized for more robust / hearty products.
- After infeed, product progresses through the blanching screw trough where the spiral blade creates separate chambers
- An extraction conveyor transitions the product from blanching to a circulated cold bath that cools the product
- This process ensures the most accurate heating and cooling treatment for the product
- Controls set the screw blade and conveyor speeds, as well as the water temperatures and circulation parameters and allows for separate blanching and cooling times / speeds
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.
