Firex PRO Stationary Kettles Models
Indirect Gas : Heating of water is by series of gas burners and heat exchanger. The heat exchanger heats water and converts it into steam. This then rises into the jacket and heats the product. The jacket is a full jacket and is fully insulated for efficiency and protection of operator. The heat is controlled electronically through temperature and pressure.
Direct Gas : Heating of kettle is achieved by a series of gas burners making contact with kettle. This is a preffered method of heating some products in the candy industry and other industries. Control of temperature is maintained electronically and is precise. The kettle is fully insulated for efficiency and safety of operator,unlike our competitor’s models.
Electric : Heating of kettle is by series of heating elements. The heating elements convert the water into steam. The steam then rises into the jacket and heats the product. The jacket is a full jacket and is fully insulated for efficiency and protection of operator. The heat is controlled electronically through temperature and pressure.
Direct Steam : Heating of kettle is achieved by an external steam source that produces steam and sends it into the jacket. The jacket is a full jacket and is fully insulated. This optimizes heat transfer and protects the operator. The steam then returns to the system in the form of condensate. The temperature is controlled electronically and also by pressure. Firex PRO Stationary kettle is the ONLY direct steam kettle on the market that gives you control of the product by temperature, not just pressure.
Autoclave : Firex PRO Stationary kettle also offers an autoclave version. The autoclave version allows the kettle to use internal pressure to assist in the cooking of the product. Firex PRO Stationary kettle is the only kettle on the market that has a model line dedicated to internal pressure, as a standard model offering.
Firex PRO Stationary Kettles allow the user to use pressure to cook, which dramatically decreases the time needed to complete a batch. Some examples of how Firex PRO Stationary Kettles work are:
Beans: Dry, out of bag, no soaking, cooked in 45 minutes
