The blancher-cooler is a completely stainless steel tunnel with a blue foodgrade modular belt. Water is filtered over the modular filterbelt to protect pumps and spraying system. The belts are driven by a gear motor SEW.
The heating in the blanching zone is done by means of a direct steam injection in a special tube steam-water mixing injector in the collector after the blanchingpumps. The machine is executed with stainless steel pumps PACKO..
Air Cooling is also integrated (option). During aircooling it is important to open the covers in this area.
Aircooling is combined with watercooling all over the coolingsection, to be able to cool also spinach.
The spraying system is a patented tube-bar system which gives a good distribution of a high water volume and is not sensible to blocking of the sprayers. This is a fully reliable solution, patented by CB and applied already at blanchers at well known freezing companies.
