Compact solution for cooling hot-filled sachets

16 January 2023

Lyco Manufacturing is working with Holmach in the UK to launch the new Mini Flex Chill-Flow Cooler for the rapid cooling of single serve sachets through to large food service pouches.

Using 80% less water and energy, when compared to traditional tumble chillers and being available in the smaller 2.4m and 3.6m sizes, Lyco have addressed the challenges of maximising production levels and minimising environmental impact, alongside restrictions on factory square footage.

Water usage is a prime consideration today, from both a cost and sustainability perspective, with traditional tumble chillers dumping water after every batch. The Mini Flex Chill-Flow design can hold the water for as much as a week resulting in lower water usage and lower energy costs, while achieving good cooling times following the hot fill of soups, sauces, condiments and pouched meals.

Patented technology ensures a uniform cooling process that is said to be up to twice as fast as other systems. As pouches proceed through the rotary drum cooler they are totally submerged in water, being gently stirred and massaged. The Hydro Flow agitation system gentle agitation ensures packaging integrity while cooling to the core of the pouch. This first-in-first-out process achieves cooling levels of 4.4oC and can be managed in various modes including batch, continuous and oscillating.
