Laitram Machinery's CoolSteam® technology dramatically and permanently changed the way the world blanches vegetables. Decades of research and development and in-plant processing experience validates this time-tested, proven technology.
With more than 150 CoolSteam® systems in place worldwide, processors are realizing significant profits through improved yield results, enhanced product quality, increased energy efficiency (savings), and greater product safety.
The Laitram Machinery CoolSteam® Blancher offers many benefits over other blanching methods. Its technology and modular design provides:
The Laitram CoolSteam® Blanching System handles a wide variety of products including, but not limited to, green beans, corn, onions, peas, broccoli, peppers, and celery.
Save energy and preserve high yields with the CoolSteam® Rainfall Chilling System. As blanched product exits the CoolSteam® Blancher, it immediately enters the chilling process, stopping the cooking process. The modular design of the CoolSteam® Rainfall Chiller makes it customizable to your specific needs. Machine operation is based on solid thermodynamic principles:
Integrated Solution / Closed-Loop System (Optional) This solution integrates the entire chilling loop. Laitram Machinery recommends using a Closed-Loop System when:
Laitram Machinery’s Process Control System provides processors with reliable information, allowing fast and easy error detection that simplifies operations, while producing significant cost savings. Each Process Control System is customized to your specific system requirements.
The flexible design can be reapplied to quickly and easily control other systems. Operating from a single location via a user-friendly touch-screen interface, the control system is accessed remotely through the internet; this ensures that processors can track their operations...anywhere, any time.
