Aaron Equipment buys and sells reconditioned, unused, and used blanchers and used cookers. Industrial blanchers are primarily used in the food processing industry for cleaning and cooking of fruits, vegetables, beans and other fresh cut products before further processing such as canning and freezing.
Blanching food is normally treated by either a water or steam system. Water blanchers immerse the food in hot water and steam blanchers expose the product to steam directly in a contained chamber. Both blanchers generally have two-step process of heating then cooling. The heating process is extremely fast and either partially or fully cooks the food. Then the food products are immediately cooled to stop the food from cooking any longer. Blanching helps preserve the nutrients, color, and texture of the food before the next step in processing. Blanching equipment also helps prevent the risk of food contamination.
Industrial cookers are heated chambers used to perform a variety of applications within the food industry. Industrial cookers heat a large volume of product at extremely high temperatures then remove the product and deliver it to the next step in the process.
