Professional accessories and extras for food processing
With suitable accessories and individual extras for food processing machines, you take the next step towards automated, efficient production processes and in the direction of Industry 4.0. Use reasonable expansions for your standardization or convenience line to drive the optimization of cost efficiency, sustainability, resource management and hygiene.
Complementary accessories and expanding extras for alco's food processing machines help bring the automation process and resource conservation in your machine to perfection. Our supplementary machines are connected to the main line in just a few steps and, thanks to modern PLC touch panels and sensor technology, communicate permanently with the downstream equipment, for example for automatic filling or recycling of valuable materials.
On request, we will be happy to manufacture customized special solutions for you!
Dustfree ADF PRO
The alco Dustfree PRO is suitable for the continuous extraction of dusts from the alco preduster and breading machine. Dust generated from upstream equipment is drawn out of the machines during the production process and collected in a separate system container. A practically dust-free working environment is thus ensured. Equipped with its own powerful, variably adjustable fan, the alco Dustfree PRO is connected to the blow-off system and, in addition to extracting and cleaning the plant air, also ensures that the blow-off nozzle is fed.
Crumb and flour feeder
The alco crumb and flour feeder is used to fill a breading machine with almost all types of bread crumbs or a preduster with flour, spices or even sugar. The medium is gently conveyed from the supply hopper into the machine via a vertical screw conveyor. In addition, another horizontal screw is installed in the hopper at the bottom to ensure that the fine medium is continuously and uniformly conveyed to the vertical screw conveyor. An ergonomic working height and the simple control system facilitate the production process and at the same time minimize potential sources of error.
The alco batter filter is the ideal supplement for continuous filtration of coarse particles (≥ 0.6 mm) from the battering. The viscosity of the battering can thus be kept constant during running production over longer production times and with the input of breadcrumbs. First and foremost, the operating costs are positively influenced by the fact that the service life of the battering is significantly extended by the filtration.
The alco batter mixer is the perfect accessory for mixing and preparing low visoucs batters to high viscous tempura. The reliable and solid mixer is composed of a central vessel with an agitator, in which several batters are mixed or kept at a homogeneous consistency. The agitator is conveniently and easily operated by a PLC control via touch panel. A pump, located at the base of the vessel, is used to gently pump batter, tempura or marinades to other nearby processing systems.
The alco oil filter "ClearOil" is ideally suited for continuous filtering of particles from the frying oil of a connected fryer, during operation. The great advantage is the lifetime of the oil, which is massively extended by the filtering process, thus increasing the product quality immensely and at the same time reducing the operating costs in the frying process.
The filter system is ideally suited to effectively and economically clean all common types of frying oil and frying fat, which are contaminated by spices, brine, breadings and other additives. Filtration is purely mechanical, without the addition of chemical substances. With the special filtration method, particles as small as 1 µm can be separated. A debris remains with a residual oil quantity of approx. 5 % oil.
Oil storage tank
The alco oil storage tank is designed to store the oil of a connected fryer and at the same time filter out dirt particles by sedimentation. Available in various sizes, the oil tank is equipped with a level sensor that automatically switches off the pump at maximum oil level. In addition, the PLC control of the connected alco frying system is extended accordingly to be able to control all functions of the oil tank conveniently and reliably directly via the fryer. Particularly suitable for storing oil and frying fat up to an operating temperature of 160 °C.
The alco smoking system "FastSmoke" reduces the smoking time from several hours to just a few minutes. Integrated into spiral ovens, it enables simultaneous cooking, roasting, baking and smoking of a wide variety of meats as well as vegetarian and vegan products on an industrial scale - completely free of harmful substances.
While in conventional smoking processes, both at home barbecues and in large-scale industrial applications, long smoking times using different smoulder smoke generators at temperatures of up to 100 °C are necessary to obtain the typical "smoky flavor", alco offers for the first time an efficient alternative that implements the highest quality without residues and toxins.
