GEA ColdSteam T
The GEA ColdSteam T significantly reduces defrosting time to well less than half that of conventional defrosting techniques. It is based on a GEA ScanMidi tumbler, customized for defrosting with a steam expander, extended cooling/heating jacket plus cooling/heating in the carriers, integrated vacuum pump and weighing cells.
The GEA ScanMidi can be used for high capacity massaging, tumbling, cooling, coating, rinsing and defrosting of pork, beef, poultry and fish. The drum speed, process time, direction, and vacuum are adjustable to provide a very high level of process control. Drum volumes up to 10,000 l. are available.
The GEA ScanMini is specially developed for in-line massaging/tumbling with the highest degree of flexibility in production flow. The large diameter semi-automatic lid, tilting function, drum design and drive control ensure the shortest possible batch processing time. This results in maximum number of batches per production day. Massaging and tumbling is done under continuous vacuum, providing a closed environment for better food safety and greater product consistency.
