Sanitary DSI Jet Cookers

The Pick Sanitary Heater/Jet Cooker is the preferred choice for in-line product cooking, CIP or nitrogen injection. 

 

Pick heats or cooks any water miscible liquid or slurry instantly on a continuous straight through basis. It can also handle slurries containing bite sized pieces such as salsas or stews…with piece integrity retained!

 

Pick has the only Sanitary Direct Steam Injection system that achieves set point temperature on demand with a non-shearing action. Forget the inherent process inefficiencies and maintenance headaches of traditional batch cooking.

 

Pick Direct Steam Injection allows you to heat in-line, with precise temperature control and 100% energy efficiency.

Benefits of Pick Sanitary Direct Steam Injection Cooking:


 

In-Line Cooking

Pick Sanitary Heaters eliminate slow batch processing. Heat, cook or sterilize on a continuous, straight-through basis. The Pick Direct Steam Injection heater processes higher volumes of quality product in less time than any other heating method.

Non-Shearing Action

Helical flights inside the heater body allow a generous, unobstructed flow path for liquids and slurries. Because the Direct Steam Injection process is non-shearing, slurries containing bite-sized pieces can be heated without damage to texture or consistency. Product integrity is maintained, cooking is thorough and fast, and blending is uniform.

Precise Temperature Control

Pick's precise temperature control assures exceptional product quality. With Pick Sanitary Direct Steam Injection, quality control problems common to jacketed kettle cooking or sparging are virtually eliminated. In addition, a separate steam control valve eliminates stem packing leakage and possible product contamination.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

The Pick Sanitary Direct Steam Injection unit can be delivered to you complete and ready to install. Simply connect the system to your steam and product piping and start heating. In comparison to competitive methods, the Pick Heater requires very little effort to clean and maintain. The unit can be easily disassembled in minutes for routine cleaning. Nothing could be simpler, or faster to maintain.

 

How the Pick Direct Steam Injection Jet Cooker Works:


 

  1. Water-miscible liquid or slurry enters mixing chamber.
  2. Steam enters here.
  3. Steam and liquid mix thoroughly within the heater body.
  4. Cooked liquid or slurry is ejected from the outlet.
