Alco Processing Solutions

Alco Processing Solutions cover a range of different machines ranging from standalone to full-bespoke line systems. Their designs offer unsurpassed levels of hygiene and product quality whilst maintaining optimum yields, flexibility and throughputs.

The main focus areas for Alco are:

Alco Forming Systems which offer forming for a maximum variety of products. They give highly accurate weight portioning and gentle two or three-dimensional forming, with a high hourly throughput and rapid changing of form plates.

Optional extras include paper interleavers, ball rolling devices, croquette units, tray dispensers and lifting devices.

Alco Breading/Dusting/Coating Systems that can undertake the coating of different food products with flour, spices or finely-ground breadcrumbs. The innovative Alco blow-off system creates minimal dust after the exact and even application of the chosen coating. Options include a multi-flip belt system, dust removing systems and flour feeding hoppers. For the even and exact application/battering of tempura-type batters or liquid marinades, Alco also manufactures liquid coating machines which come with the option of a tempura mixer.

Alco Further Processing Systems which offer the capability of flattening, tenderising and Cordon Bleu slicing of all red and white meat primals. The emphasis is on user-friendly operation with very high levels of finished product quality. The Cordon Bleu machine can also be set to slice chicken breasts to a pre-determined depth, or completely through if needed.

Alco Hot-Cook Mixing Systems that can produce cooking results of the highest levels of taste and quality. Using a unique Alco system for the cooking and frying of various different products via steam or thermal oil mediums, the machines undertake the simultaneous cooking and mixing of products in order to create an even temperature throughout the mix. The machines employ an innovative spring-loaded scraping system to carry out the gentlest mixing of the foodstuffs without creating ‘burn on’ issues.
