Overview

Rely on new Lutetia technology to improve your process efficiency, increase your yields and deliver reliable performance in at least 6 innovative and flexible ways. Lutetia's patented Steam-Vacuum Process has positioned the Lutetia brand as the industry leader. Steam–vacuum defrosting saves time and improves yields. Patented Lutetia® technology allows the gradual low-pressure injection of steam under vacuum to speed the thawing process without danger of cooking the product surface. Frozen blocks are gradually separated and uniform temperatures are achieved via rotation. Yields typically improve by 4-8 percent when using this process. Salting, tenderizing, smoking, cooking, cooling and PROactivation can also be controlled in a single, time-saving operation.

Benefits

  • Fully automated cycle control and cycle times that are 3-6 times faster
  • Innovative low-pressure steam injection allows a faster defrosting with no surface cooking
  • An exclusive helicoidal baffle ensures a gentle rotation that is suitable for all frozen and fresh processed products
  • The unique double jacket provides heating and cooling control that is precise and timesaving
  • Versatile process integration saves time and boosts yields
  • Hygienic design and operation is assured
  • Easy sanitation helps protect against microbial growth while the wide and conveniently operated door allows easy cleaning and visual inspection
  • The steam-vacuum process allows defrosting much faster than microbial latency
  • Vacuum and rotation helps to reabsorb juices thus reducing protein loss    
  • Boneless products can be defrosted in the tumbler. We have many applications worldwide.
