Mecair MA-C Spiral cookers

MECAIR MA-C is a spiral cookers’ range working with air and steam.

The product to be cooked is placed on a flexible belt, either orderly or randomly, where the product remains motionless. The belt runs a spiral-shaped path where the product is subjected to a suitable flow of hot air. Cooking can be made in a:

  • humid environment obtained with direct steam injection;
  • dry environment obtained with dry hot air make-up.

Both cooking types feature automatic humidity control.

A special horizontal air circulation system ensures a high degree of temperature uniformity across the belt.

The belt drive is based on a simple and reliable central drum system and requires low tensioning for correct operation. The dwell time/speed of the belt is regulated with frequency variators.

The whole system is enclosed within an insulated cabin.

Each standard MECAIR MA-C system can be individually configured to match customer needs and specifications.

  • Non packaged solid products fed in bulk or in rows (sausages, etc.)
  • No possibility of product contamination thanks to lubrication-free conveyor system
  • High mechanical reliability and stability of spiral conveyor
  • Reduced belt wear and elongation thanks to the drive system requiring low tensioning
  • No belt flipping thanks to proprietary software for automatic adjustment of belt tension
  • All spiral structures, including drum, made of stainless steel
  • A special horizontal air circulation system ensures a high degree of temperature uniformity in all belt lanes
  • Low cost of spare parts and maintenance activities due to utilization of high quality commercial components
  • WORKING CAPACITY from 400 to 2000 KG/h
