DTS auger blanchers are one of our specialities. Our blanchers are the benchmark in the mushroom processing industry thanks to their high-quality precision construction and cost-effective engineering and manufacturing. We supply auger blanchers in every capacity, from small to large. Mushrooms float in water, so our mushroom blancher features specially designed submerge lids over the internal auger for a consistent blanching result. Mushrooms are usually hydrated prior to blanching in a DTS hydration chamber or a continuous hydration tower.
A variety of options are available, including integrated heating by direct steam injection or via a shell and tube heat exchanger, outfeed through auger outfeed or by free float, and infeed and by-pass flumes with manual or automated valves for product diversion. Other options include insulated body and lids to reduce energy loss and heat radiation to the plant, fully integrated service platforms with stairs and handrails, clean-in-place, etc.
