Source Technology PowerHeater™

The PowerHeater uses patented extrusion technology. It transfers thermal energy into a plant or meat based emulsion to coagulate the protein and any potential sources of carbohydrate to produce texturised products including vegan chicken strips and beef etc. 

It incorporates pressure and temperature controls and includes a by-pass valve which ensures any product not heated to a food safe temperature does not enter a high-care area. The PowerHeater is automatically flushed with high-pressure water flow as part of its general preparation for cleaning. 

The PowerHeater is available in three different configurations:

Available with different auger depths from 5mm to 16mm. 

Finally, the PowerHeater is complimented by the optional Flexicut.
