Hoegger Cooking and Chilling Systems Offer Uncompromising Food SAFETY

The continuous Post-Package Cooking and Chilling process by Hoegger ensures the highest level of product quality, a safe and long shelf life of the product, and best value. They offer a completely automated system solution, from the packed product to the carton boxing.

From the packaging machine, the product is fed continuously onto the Cook and Chill unit. Automatically loaded conveyor trays move the product continuously through the heating zone, using a patented, multi-layer horizontal counter flow method with the advantage that it heats the individual packages gradually, controlled and consistently without shocking. As the product moves through, it is exposed to continuous water shower as well as a controlled pool of water in the tray where the product sits.

The product is rapidly chilled by an intense water shower. The coldest product comes in contact with the coldest water, which allows for gentle and effective cooling with no ice crystals. Once the chilling cycle is finished, the product is moved onto a conveyor belt and air dried by going through an air blast station and is ready to be boxed for shipping.  


Hoegger offers a patented energy recovery feature that conserves as much as one third of the thermal heat and chilling energy input. Processing plants utilizing the energy swing use the least amount of energy, which contributes to the bottom line as well as to the ever increasing requirement of sustainability.
