2013 ChemShow: Readco Kurimoto, LLC will be exhibiting the SC Processor at the 2013 ChemShow (click for details) for process engineers and companies to see and learn about the latest technology to increase process efficiency. December 10-12, 2013 at the Javits Convention Center in New York, NY (click for map). The SCP or 'self-cleaning' processor is used for solvent reclamation, polymerization, degassing, and crystallization. Come visit us in Booth 619 (click for Interactive Floor Plan).
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What about down time for clean up? It takes us one 8 hour shift to clean our batch mixer.
Q: You talk about batch-to-batch variations. How can your equipment eliminate this problem?
New Product Line: SC ProcessorA machine designed to continuously process a wide range of materials by significantly reducing the moisture content of the material and transforming it into a dry powder or high viscosity slurry.
One of the key operations in chocolate manufacture, after the cocoa bean roasting, winnowing, grinding etc. is the "conching" stage where the chocolate paste is refined into finished chocolate. This was, until recently, done by batch operations involving mixing in large vessels, called "conches", for 12 to 24 hours, before discharging it to bulk tanks. This is a time, energy consuming, and inefficient way of making finished chocolate, which in my view and experience, the Readco-Processor has made obsolete.
The Processor with its twin screw, co-rotating , precise shearing and temperature control design, can convert the chocolate paste consistently and continuously into finished product. Its self cleaning design allows it to be used on a variety of chocolates with quick change from one to another, often required by chocolate suppliers.
The Readco-Kurimoto "continuous processor" is a versatile, compact and efficient machine for structure-forming unit operations in food manufacturing. Food processes combining such unit operations as mixing, dispersion and heating, especially of high-viscosity high-solids systems, are accomplished rapidly and in continuous format.
