Multi-Purpose Processing Vessel
INDUSTRIAL FOOD TECHNOLOGY
FT40 Multi-purpose Processing Vessel
A vital stage in the preparation of a food product is the accurate addition and correct mixing of the various ingredients, which make up the recipe. It is usual that heat will be required, subsequent cooling and chilling are often needed for preservation. The Armfield Multi-purpose Processing Vessel is able to carry out these actions with very small quantities of ingredients. The facilities to mix, emulsify, heat, pasteurise, incubate, cool, chill and cure are all built in to this purpose-designed unit. As well as preparation of food products for further processing, the facilities allow production of finished products in batch sizes from 5- 20 litres.
• Batch size only 10 - 20 litres
• Integral control console incorporating comprehensive instrumentation
• Fully self-contained system in mobile cabinet
• On board utilities
• Dual purpose heating and cooling jacket
• Stainless steel vessel
• Heating to 85°C
• Cooling to 1°C
• Fitted with Silversen™ Mixer
• Data logging facility
> Versatile batch processing
> Used for a variety of powder incorporations
> Used to make oil/water emulsions
> Can make as little as five litres
The Armfield FT40 consists of a jacketed vat, mounted within a mobile cabinet containing all the servicing utilities and necessary instrumentation.
The unit is fully self-contained with electrical heating, cooling water and chilled water circulating systems and an efficient emulsifier/mixer, which is easily raised or lowered into the vat.
