Background

The BlenTherm single agitator blending cooker handles slow to moderate viscosity foods such as soups, sauces, and meat slurries better than a Kettle. Our proprietary system incorporates many of the advantages of our flagship VersaTherm batch meat cooker into a single agitator cooker that is the gold standard of industrial soup and sauce cookers. It is the answer for processors seeking to increase productivity, product quality, and process efficiency.


BlenTherm Horizontally Agitated Cooker Advantages

  • Cook up to 50% faster than conventional methods
  • Consistent, repeatable cook processes
  • Reduce ingredient costs
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Smaller footprint
  • Longest lasting design
  • Integrated automation
  • Improved yields
  • Heat and cool in one machine
  • Rapidly cooks fluids or particulates in one machine
  • Authentic, scalable cooking methods
  • In addition, our customers have access to Blentech dedicated engineering, service & support.
There are even more reasons why our BlenTherm cooker is BETTER than a steam jacketed kettle. The Patented Blentech scraper design and mixing effectiveness are driving factors in the reduction of process times and improved food safety. An evenly mixed vessel in this horizontally agitated steam jacketed cooker ensures even heating throughout the batch and eliminates the risk of undercooked products. Our agitator and scraper, the Blentech steam jacketed cooker for soup and sauce cooker systems undergo computerized and empirical qualification and are scrutinized under strict QA protocols. Blentech enables processors in our professional soup cookers to create a wide range of products faster, at a lower operating cost, without compromising quality.
