The packaging of the final product takes place at the bagging station, where the process involves the utilization of the Bascule, Roller Conveyor, and Sewing machine.
The primary functions of the cooker/dryer encompass the sterilization, hydrolyzation, cooking, and drying of the raw material.
To ensure robustness and stability, the cooker/dryer is affixed to a heavy-duty steel frame, which also accommodates the heavy-duty drive. The reduction unit boasts a high safety factor, and the torque is regulated through the implementation of mechanical fuses.
The shaft is solid and rounded, crafted from a specially forged steel alloy, while the bearings are designed as double row roller bearings. The self-discharging agitator arms, constructed from wear-resistant steel, are mounted on this shaft.
For ease of operation during loading and unloading, the cooker is equipped with a user-friendly “no lift” filling cover and a top-hinged discharge door.
The shell is effectively insulated with mineral wool and covered with stainless steel sheeting.
The combined process takes a maximum of 4.5 hours, encompassing the time required for loading and unloading the cooker/dryer. Specifically, the cooking cycle for blood alone may extend up to 7 hours.
