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.
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.
Superior Drainage when compared to alternative products
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).
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.
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.
Alloy's Control Screw is constructed using heavier materials than the competition and has features that help it perform with greater efficiency.

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.
Talk to one of our Application Engineers today about the Alloy Batch Hydrolyzer and HPHD and see how Putting Alloy in Your Process can change your bottom line forever!
