Laitram Machinery Brings New Bulk/Tray Cooker to 2005 International Boston Seafood Show
At the International Boston Seafood Show (March 13-15, 2005, Booth 2128), Laitram Machinery will present its new forced convection shrimp cooker, plus a full range of processing solutions for warm and cold water shrimp. Visitors to Booth 2128 can also meet Laitram's new General Manager, Mr. Paul Gariepy.
New Bulk/Tray Shrimp Cooker
Laitram's new FC300 Bulk/Tray Steam Cooker specializes in cooking PTO (peeled, tail-on) and other peeled shrimp by allowing an infeed of shrimp in trays or in bulk. A unit that can cook up to a ½ ton of shrimp per hour will be on display at Booth 2128. The versatile new cooker features a patented forced convection process that cooks shrimp at a lower temperature than the 100°C used by most conventional steam cookers. With this process, shrimp retain more of their natural moisture, protecting yield and preserving flavor.
o 2 in 1 flexibility: allows tray cooking and bulk feeding
o Yield gain potential
o Higher quality product
o Reduced curl
o Easy to clean and operate
