Handtmann Inotec BC-iT automatic processing unit

The universal processing unit for grinding, mixing, heating, cooling and emulsifying hot and cold products with and without vacuum.

The universal Handtmann Inotec BC-iT process technology for simultaneous pre-grinding, mixing, cooking, cooling, ultra-fine grinding, emulsifying and pumping enables the processing of the entire range of food products from liquid to pasty to solid or chunky. The compact, closed overall system of various sizes and performance capacities is optimally designed for high-performance processes in the processing of meat, dairy, confectionery, vegan/vegetarian products, baby food, pet food and more. All components are optimally homogenised under vacuum in the processing unit, from pre-grinding and mixing to cooking up to 99 °C and pumping or dosing into packaging solutions.

The all-rounder: from grinding to cooking and cooling

Whether processed cheese, pâté, smoothies, almond milk, baby mash or meat product: the option of heating products directly (injection) or indirectly (double jacket) or cooling them with water allows the processing of both cold and hot products. The vacuum system of the BC 175-iT allows the product mixture to be evacuated. The addition of liquids and dry substances is realised by means of additional connections or using the vacuum in the BC 175-iT. This ensures the addition of further ingredients during the process and renders the scope of application comprehensive and universal.

Powerful pre-grinding and optimum homogenisation

The BC-iT processing unit offers powerful pre-grinding capable of processing even hard or chunky components. Optimum homogenisation of ingredients in a wide range of consistencies such as liquid, chunky and powdery is possible thanks to the pumping function. The product can be ground ultra-fine as required during or after the cooking/cooling process. The result is an emulsified, homogenised product that can be processed in downstream processes. The modular 1- to 4-stage cutting system with automatic cutting set adjustment, precise position setting and continuous readjustment forms the foundation for this thanks to the horizontally arranged cutting system.

Flexible processes for a wide variety of products

The integrated process control can be individually adapted to a wide range of products. The texture of the product can be customised through appropriate process steps.

Variable. Compatible. User-friendly.

The BC 140-iT automatic processing unit with different hopper sizes and the BC 175-iT, designed for continuous industrial operation, are available in corresponding performance capacities for the market. They are perfect stand-alone machines but also easy to integrate into existing processing systems. The central control of the overall process is managed and monitored via the Inotec process control.
