The Pick SC Sanitary Heater is a proven performer and is used for heating, cooking or sterilizing liquid or slurry-type food products on a continuous, straight-through basis. By delicately injecting medium-to-high pressure steam directly into pumpable food products temperature gain is instant and accurate. This virtually eliminates slow batch processing and delivers product of the highest quality.
When compared to crude steam jet units the difference is Pick’s innovative variable-orifice injector and stationary helical flights that assure thorough but gentle mixing of steam and product within the heating chamber.
