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.
