Bechamel Sauce


Bechamel sauce is one of the most widely used sauces in food manufacturing. The creamy sauce is a base for many ready meals including carbonara, lasagna and moussaka. The long running challenges for production is burn on and fouling due to the high temperatures of a steam jacketed kettle.

No Burn On Contamination

Steam Infusion prevents burn on contamination by introducing steam in a partial vacuum of -0.7 Bar, cooking from the centre of the kettle out. Food manufacturers can preserve both the natural colour and taste of sauces.


Faster Cooking & Cleaning

The patented Vaction™ technology used in Steam Infusion is a highly effective heating and mixing device. The technology can heat 1,000kg of water from 25°C to 85°C in less than 7 minutes. The sauce ingredients have a lower specific heat capacity than water and accordingly will be heated faster dependent on thickness/viscosity.
