Batch cookers

April 3, 2007

Mepaco says its ThermaBlend cookers efficiently cook soups, sauces, fillings, taco meat, chili and other viscous food products. They are built using an hourglass design that provides a larger heating surface for improved heat transfer, which eliminates cooking inefficiencies, maintains product integrity and reduces cooking time, says the company. The cookers feature dual-ribbon agitators for homogenous blending, a wrap-around ASME heat jacket to provide effective heat transfer and a scraper system that helps heat exchange surfaces remain clean, preventing burn-on.
