Process Heating Engineering: Vanilla Beans
Often, when your industry is unique, there is not a ready-to-ship solution for your specific process heating needs. Powerblanket’s process heating engineering uses ingenuity and Powerblanket technology to solve the temperature needs of many different companies throughout many different industries.
Powerblanket is currently working with Tahitian Gold, vanilla producer of choice for master chefs and culinary institutions, gourmet cooks and food connoisseurs, to find the best process heating engineering solution for their vanilla beans.
The Heating Problem
Tahitian Gold has vanilla beans that require heating before processing, and they do not currently have an effective means for consistent, safe heating. Right now, Tahitian Gold is testing various Powerblankets for buckets, barrels, totes and even a flat blanket to determine which process heating solution is most effective for their current temperature needs.
While this is not an overly complicated process heating dilemma, the mass of the beans and uncontrolled air gaps, along with awkward sizes and complex temperature and wattage requirements cause problems with consistent heating. Hence, the reason for testing multiple Powerblanket options to ensure optimal results.
Each Powerblanket option provides concentrated heat to help consistently heat the beans throughout each container.
Powerblanket will approach your process heating needs with creativity built around your heating requirements.
