Alloy has customers running more than 13 Batch Cookers.
The amount of product you process in a day is only one factor in choosing your process.
Because batch processing is a first in first out process, it is far easier to measure the finish end-point temperature of the product. Utilizing JX-type contact thermocouples the actual product temperature is easy to track and measure the actual product temperature. By using the strong relationship between temperature and moisture content of the product being cooked, we determine the precise correct temperature/moisture of the product discharge the product at the correct end-point consistently.
In contrast, none of the current continuous processing technologies are first in first out, they rely on constant feed and discharge during the cooking process. Since they are NOT first in first out processes, some of the product "short-circuits" reaching the discharge without being thoroughly cooked. As a result, Continuous Cooking processes have to overcook the product to assure the "short-circuited product is sufficiently cooked. The result is a reduction in the quality of both the Meal and Fat.

While Alloy generally recommends Blow Tanks in conjunction with Batch Cookers, due to their abillity to fill a cooker in seconds, we offer a wide range of filling options including both our Ramveyor Pistion Pump, Lamella raw product pump and, Screw Conveyors in addition to the blow tank. -
