Continuous processors from process equipment manufacturer Readco Kurimoto LLC feature a one-piece screw design that ensures the shafts and paddles form a smooth, seamless surface throughout the entire length of the mixing chamber.
Machined in one, solid piece from a single block of stainless steel with no gaps or hidden traps, the proprietary, USDA-certified design eliminates the need for welds, fasteners, and other connections that invite product buildup and harbor bacterial growth. The potential for product contamination is virtually eliminated while cleaning moves faster and with greater confidence than in batch processes.
Custom-engineered and machined for each installation, the one-piece screw design also eliminates the potential risk of human error from rearranging the paddles to ensure the proper configuration is always intact and producing the homogeneous, uniform end product as targeted and specified. The sanitary processing system combines multiple liquid, dry, and viscous materials to mix, blend, react, compound, crystallize, and/or perform other processes in a single step for highly efficient processing proven to save time versus traditional methods, while maintaining or enhancing product quality.
