Benefits of Pick Sanitary Direct Steam Injection 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.
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 (common with close coupled units) 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 inspection and COP cleaning. Nothing could be simpler, or faster to maintain.
