processing equipment

DC Norris North America are delighted to announce another successful week in our short history with new orders received totaling over $2 million; proof again that we are a truly global equipment supplier!

Our latest order is for a custom designed processing kitchen for a chilled ready-meal food producer in the US. The resulting order was achieved via several meetings with senior managers, which included process trials at our UK test facility in January, and subsequent meetings at our clients US facility. The trials of soup, sauces and dressings demonstrated a dramatic reduction in processing time, improved product finished quality, and a reduction in both processing stages and energy.

DCN NA was tasked to develop and incorporate a complete system meeting with our clients exacting needs, and will include DCN cooking kettles built to ASME and complying with UL & NSF, along with our patented Jet Cook units, powder entrainment system, braising bar, and high shear emulsifier, which are all controlled by the DCN Recipe Manager System. The completed system also includes a large custom built operator access platform to accommodate four 1000-liter kettles, with space allowed for future expansion. To complement the cooking equipment, a dedicated Clean-In-Place system is also being provided. The whole system will be designed, built and tested ‘in-house’ in the UK factory, prior to shipping and installing in the USA later this year.
