Cooking and Draining

Alloy offers both Batch and Continuous complete lines of cooking and draining solutions.  Alloy also offers Remanufactured equipment that carries the same warranty as new, the choice is yours.

BATCH

BATCH COOKER

  • Full 1" Inner shell
  • Dodge Shaft-mounted Drive
  • Dodge Double-Interlock Bearings
  • Mechanical Shaft Seals
  • Hardfaced Paddles
  • Round or Square Shaft Options

Alloy Batch Cookers were designed after years of servicing other brands and feedback from customers about their strengths and weaknesses. 


Customers complained about the life of the inner-shell, Alloy addressed this with a full 1" inner-shell fitted with reinforcing rings, the combination of thicker materials and the reinforcing rings doubled the useful life of the inner-shell. 


Customers were frustrated by the use of proprietary gearboxes and bearings requiring them to get parts from the OEM at elevated prices. When Alloy designed its cooker we chose Dodge brand drives and bearings making service parts
readily available from local suppliers.


Customers were tired of stuffing box and packing glands wearing the shaft out in the sealing areas years before the rest of the shaft was worn out, so Alloy designed Mechanical Seals to seal our cookers, eliminating this wear while providing superior sealing and virtually eliminating leakage.

Alloy Cookers are available in 5x12, 5x14, 5x16 and 5x18 sizes with additional features to increase the throughput of Alloy Cookers relative to other manufacturers.

BATCH DRAINERS

Alloy Perc Pans are feature-rich making them a welcome addition to any batch rendering process.

  • Four screw live bottom design
  • Dual Drives for metering and redundancy
  • Maximized drainage area
  • Pre-press action discharge tubes
  • Up to six cookers per pan
  • Fat surge well
  • Separate "fines" conveyor
  • Push or Pull designs
  • Low Horsepower
  • High reliable draning

Alloy Dual Screw Perc Pan

Alloy Dual Perc Pans, like their big brother the four screw pan are feature-rich making them a welcome addition to batch rendering processes with lower capacity or where space is limited.

  • Dual screw design
  • Dual Drives for metering and redundancy
  • Maximized drainage area
  • Pre-press action discharge tubes
  • Up to six cookers per pan
  • Fat surge well
  • Separate "fines" conveyor
  • Push or Pull designs
  • Low Horsepower
  • High reliable draining

Alloy Roll Out Perc Pan

Designed for applications with low volumes or limited budget, the Alloy Roll-Out/Tip-Up Perc Pan offers affordable superior drainage. The perforated basket is supported on wheels and with the aid of a chain hoist rolls forward and then tips to discharge the drained material in to a collection conveyor.

  • Low Investment
  • Superior Drainage when compared to alternative products
  • Low Horspower
  • Virtually maintenance free

CONTINUOUS 

CONTINUOUS COOKER

Similar to Batch Cookers, Alloy was an innovator in the design and manufacture of Continuous Cookers by increasing material thicknesses and other design changes increasing the useful life of both the inner-shell and rotor tubes. 

The drive and bearing components used on Alloy Continuous Cookers are Dodge brand components unless customers have an existing cooker requiring us to match existing components.

Alloy Continuous Cookers are available from 700ft2 to over 3,000ft2 with evaporation capacities ranging from 5,250 pounds per hour to 22,500 pounds per hour. (10,500 to 45,000 per hour of raw materials).

CONTINUOUS DRAINERS

The traditional design for a continuous cooker includes the drainer section, complete with Quick Change screens and custom auger, followed by the screener/sedimenter sections below. The screener portion is the reservoir where fines are permitted to settle prior to automated removal by the sedimenter screw at the bottom. Customers like the systematic removal of fines and the automatic mixing of fines with the drained meal.

Drainer

While many customers still prefer the traditional Drainer Screener Sedimenter approach to draining of the free fat, others have moved to a slightly different approach of a Drainer Only system design where the drained fat and fines are pumped to a vibratory screen or centrifuge system for separation. Alloy was a pioneer in this modified approach to continuous draining and offers customized solutions that still offer the popular Alloy Quick Change screens.

Control Wheel
  • Stainless Steel Buckets
  • Heavier Housing Materials
  • Multiple Drive Options

A Control Wheel feeds a Continuous Cooker at an Appropriate pace for optimal cooking. Alloy's Control Wheel Provides you more for less. Click to the Literature to find out the difference.

Control Screw
  • Heavier Materials
  • Precision fit Auger to Housing
  • Easy Clean-out
  • Dual Discharge Points

Alloy's Control Screw is constructed using heavier materials than the competition and has features that help it perform with greater efficiency. Click the link to find out more about the Alloy difference. Similar in purpose to a Control Wheel, a Control Screw utilizes auger technology rather than bucket technology to feed a Continuous Cooker.

Hydrolyzer
  • Full 1" Innershell
  • Dodge Shaft-mounted Drive
  • Dodge Double Interlock Bearings
  • Mechanical Shaft Seals
  • Hardfaced Paddles
  • Square or Round Shaft Option
  • Optional Live Steam Innershell Ports

Looking to process or cook feathers? We have the Alloy Batch Hydrolyzer. All of the above refinements and improvements to batch cookers apply to the Alloy Batch Hydrolyzer such as sizes available, shell thickness, Mechanical Seals, and more. You can read more about the Alloy Batch Hydrolyzer below.

The Alloy Batch Hydrolyzer has been used in tandem with other pieces of equipment to form our HPHD (High Protein High Digestibility) process in order to produce the highest-digestibility meal available on the market.
