Pick Starch Jet Cookers provide instantaneous and complete cooking of cornstarch mash during the liquefaction process of ethanol production. The open design of the heater allows slurry flow without obstruction, at practically no pressure drop. In addition to mash cooking, Pick Heaters can be used in the following applications within an ethanol or biofuel plant: make-up water, CIP and plant washdown.
A Pick BX Heater provides instantaneous and complete cooking of starch and other water-miscible slurries. It is also a great choice for viscous slurries such as waste grease and oil. Heating with a Pick BX efficiently reduces the viscosity to promote separation of components at the centrifuge.
