Maheu Steam Infusion production
Maheu is a very popular maize-based traditional African drink. Using Steam Infusion, manufacturers can instantly hydrate maize flour to produce maize-based drinks. This cutting edge technology improves product quality and significantly reduces the system footprint and processing times of maize and other grains.
Food manufacturers use Steam Infusion to cook Maheu because...
No burn-on contamination
Steam Infusion prevents burn-on contamination by introducing steam in a partial vacuum of -0.7barg (-10.1psig), 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 500kg (1102 lb) of water from 25°C (77°F) to 85°C (185°F) 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.
