Using Food Processing Machinery for Sous Vide Cooking to Deliver a Quality Product

Food, Food Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Thursday, August 11, 2022

The Lyco Rotary Drum Sous Vide system is a food processing machinery that can be used for cooking and cooling proteins, vegetables and starch products. Its Rotary Drum continuous design ensures first in/first out of the product. The packaged product is fully submerged in water for both cooking and cooling. This system controls the precise cook and cool times and gently agitates product packages to ensure uniform treatment. The cooker water temperature is maintained within 2°F of the set point and chilled water is recirculated through the cooler in a counter-flow direction so the product can be cooled to 40°F.

The sous vide processing offers tender, tasty products with well-preserved flavour, nutrients and moisture. In addition, product colour and texture are retained within a vacuum-sealed package. This type of food processing provides higher yields overall. The Lyco Sous Vide system’s fast heat transfer ensures a small footprint. It is fully automated, repeatable and can process a wide range of package sizes, weights and capacities.

The company offers a test kitchen with a Rotary Drum Simulator to assist customers by quickly and accurately developing a precise process of cooking and cooling using the packaged sous vide product.

In this webinar, attendees will explore the functionality and working of the Lyco Rotary Drum regarding:

  • The range of packaged product that can be processed
  • The benefit of submerged cooking with Hydro-FlowTM agitation
  • The functionality of the PLC Recipe Management System

Register for this webinar to learn how using food processing machinery for sous vide cooking can deliver high quality ready to eat products.

The Experts in Innovative Food Processing Machinery

Lyco Manufacturing is a world-leading manufacturer of commercial cooking and cooling machines (850 sold), liquid-solid separation screens (1,800 sold), root crop peelers / scrubbers (400 sold), and snap bean equipment (hundreds of machines sold). We work with pasta, rice, dry beans and vegetables. We are the most innovative company in our field having created hundreds of new machines. Our customers include 50 of the Top 100 Food Companies in North America along with many smaller companies. Many of our cookers, coolers and screens are recognized, literally, as the best in the world.

We have a Laboratory where we test run each new machine we make. Customers send us their raw products and visit us to observe how our designs work on their products. We routinely help them develop new processes and new recipes. Lyco developed the only continuous pressure cooker in the world 10 years ago for cooking dry beans and rice. We have an actual production line set up in our Lab and can demonstrate how dry bean cook times can be reduced from 40 minutes to 6 or 8 minutes and enhanced quality in several different ways. Rice cook times are reduced from 20 minutes down to 6 or 8 minutes.

Our atmospheric blanchers, cookers and coolers are all state-of-the-art designs that have increased capacity, improved product quality and reduced damage with sanitary designs that clean up faster than competitive designs. We have the latest designs set up in our Lab most of the time.
