SBS (Screw Blanching System)
The PPM Technologies SBS (Screw Blanching System) handles the product very gently to minimize damages and breakage. Accurate temperature control of the water is essential for achieving the right characteristics of the finished product. Even heat transfer is important to get an even product quality. In a French fry line, normally a two step blanching process is used to get the best combination of sugar leakage and heat treatment. The blancher has a perforated screw. The screw speed is adjustable to get the correct retention time. The product is conveyed through the blancher to ferris-wheel discharge. For even temperature control and heat transfer, the blancher has a double water circulation system.
