Food Processor Chooses Sinclair for Special Parboil Conveyors
A major food processor recently awarded B. W. Sinclair Inc. the contract for a pair of special processing screw conveyors to convey, mix, and “parboil” wild rice.
The tubular units feature 36” dia BWSI LongSpan™ rotors with reduced pitch and mixing paddles to retard transfer and promote mixing. The rotors are designed to provide several minutes of retention time to expose the material to low-pressure saturated steam.
The steam is introduced via a series of multiple steam nozzles, each fitted with flexible tubing to allow thermal expansion. The fittings are eccentrically positioned to concentrate the steam per the client’s requirements. A series of condensate collection ports are mounted on the lower centerline to collect liquids and drain them off to a central takeoff. Each port is individually controllable to provide maximum process flexibility.
Custom features that add to the material handling and processing benefits include:
