TEMPERATURE CONTROL IN THE SHRIMP COOKING MACHINE
Accurate temperature control is crucial for high-quality shrimp. Traditional or forced convection steam cookers cannot give the operator as precise control over the cooking temperatures as the IF Cooker.
The 3 temperature zones of the OctoFrost™ IF Cooker provide optimal flexibility and control of the cooking process. The set temperatures can be stored in a recipe inside the touch-panel for every single batch of shrimp. The OctoFrost™ IF Cooker accurately controls the temperature in each zone.
Control is key when cooking shrimp.
When cooking shrimp, it is important to quickly heat the product during the first few seconds of the cooking process, especially the surface of the shrimp, to prevent melanosis (black tail, legs). The IF Cooker can accurately adjust the temperature in each of the 3 or 4 cooking zones.
The 3 temperature zones system allows the user to start with a higher temperature in zone 1 while reducing it in zones 2 and 3. This creates a “flat belly” temperature curve, allowing the heat to travel to the core of the product without overcooking the surface (see graph below).
RAINSHOWER SYSTEM IN SHRIMP PROCESSING EQUIPMENT
The rainshower system guarantees quickest heat transfer, allowing accurate temperature control within 0.2°C of the set temperatures.
The water falls gently over the product by means of gravitation only, therefore the product quality is not compromised.
Additionally, the rainshower system has a product cleaning function.
