Hinds-Bock Tripple Walled Heater Agitation Hopper
With the passage of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), it enacts some of the most sweeping reforms to U.S. food safety laws in more than 70 years.
The FDA requires very tight temperature tolerances. Especially for tomato based products like salsas, ketchup, barbecue sauces and some Asian sauces. To meet these new regulations, Hinds-Bock Corp. developed a triple walled heated agitated hopper. Heated oil is circulated between the inner and center walls, and with insulation between the center and outer walls, the desired temperature is maintained. The hopper cover also aids in maintaining and controlling temperatures. The gentle variable speed agitator decreases hot and cold spots.
o Hinds-Bock can supply complete heated systems. Heated blending tanks, transfer pumps with heat traced stainless steel lines, and even fillers with heated heads.
o Thermocouples that document and record temperatures in the system’s PLC, supplying documentation for stringent FDA audits
o Alarm systems that alert users when temperatures fall outside preset parameters
