SAUCE PRODUCTION WITH HIGH FLOW SHEAR MIXER INCLUDED

A self-contained mixing and cooking unit which has been designed for the cooking and mixing of sensitive products, ensuring that whilst the agitation is gentle enough to prevent "disintegration", it is strong enough to mix in additives and give an even result throughout.

The anchor agitator is fitted with scrapers which are fitted around the circumference, so that on each full revolution, the heated surface of the vessel is scraped to prevent any materials 'cooking on'. A variable speed agitator can be used, so that a variety of products may be processed in the same vessel, and, if necessary, more vigorous agitation can be obtained.

The unit is designed for easy cleaning, being entirely constructed from stainless steel including the legs, insulation skin and all mounting points for the gearbox and motors. The scrapers are manufactured from hard wearing Nylon 66 or P.T.F.E. and are fully floating. If required, CIP fittings may be provided.
