Cook Quench Chill Systems

DCN has launched the revolutionary Cook Quench Chill Adapt” Series with advanced high-speed cooking technology and a new modular design.

Versatile Modular Design with Optimum Performance

Food Manufacturers have greater flexibility with the modular construction; the Cook Quench Chill can be installed over a high care/low-risk barrier, or it can be as a single unit and expanded at any time to give a larger capacity and throughput. Installation is simplified with the modules attaching easily together before connecting to services.

Products such as pasta, rice, potatoes, and vegetables are cooked or blanched continuously at faster speeds due to the addition of two patented Jet Heat direct steam heat systems. Product quality is assured with The Variable Wave Agitation System, which produces a damage-free product and prevents product clumping.

The “CQC Adapt” is designed to give maximum water savings, with smaller tank capacities and variable water levels to suit different batch sizes.  A Starch Removal System means the same water can be re-used for a new batch. Internal heat exchangers continuously chill and control the Quench and Chill water temperature, saving more water as it recirculates through the stainless steel heat exchangers. The Heat exchangers are cleaned as part of the In-Place Cleaning regime, backflushing is also available.


    Patented Jet Heat direct steam heat system gives optimum performance with faster heat-up and cooking times.

   Save water and energy with five water level options according to product and batch size.

The water holding tank has a separate weir to allow the starch to be run off during cooking, meaning less frequent water changes.

     Safe to operate with fully interlocked guarding.

  Product quality assured with Wave Agitation System.

 Easy to clean with no external switches or wires. CIP system for internal pipework and heat exchangers. Water gun provided for manually washing baskets.
