With consumers hungry for prepared foods with authentic barbecue flavours and textures, Heat and Control’s continuous Rotary Brander delivers a genuine char-grilled finish.

Perfect grill marks on a steak are a treat for the eyes and the palette. Branding and searing food enhances not only the appearance but its flavour as well. A good searing on meat, fish or poultry seals in the juices and prevents the food from sticking to the grill.

Heat and Control’s Rotary Brander gives food manufacturers greater control over the processing line. Heat and Control processing sales manager Greg Pyne says customers can control the type of finish on a product by the number, height and angle of the burners used.

“The Rotary Brander has a variable speed conveyor, belt rinse system for easier clean-up, and self-contained combustion and control systems. Operating and combustion controls are fully pre-piped and wired to reduce installation time and costs.

“Remote control panels, as well as roll-away units on casters for more production flexibility, are available to suit your particular plant requirements,” he says.

Where the brander is in the processing line can also differentiate the product. Pyne says depending on where it is placed results in a different tasting end product.
