The alco ASH spiral oven

 

Function

The alco ASH spiral oven is perfectly suited for producing steamed, cooked and roasted products in hot circulating air and/or steam. The spiral conveyor belt design allows a large effective cook zone while the space requirement is small. Large product quantities can be cooked gently in the alco spiral oven, whereby an optimal colour and texture are achieved and moisture losses in the product are minimised. By combining several successive spirals, different climate zones can be created and thus the optimal process for the product can be mapped.

For your application we offer you, based on our standard design, machines of various sizes as well as different additional options and add-on equipment. Due to the flexible combination options, we can configure the perfect solution for you. Should your optimal solution, however, not be achievable in this way, we would be glad to develop it together with you.
