Lyco Manufacturing has opened a food product development laboratory to assist its customers with product recipe development and machinery trials involving continuous-process cookers, blanchers and chillers.

Food processors now can test their products on the most advanced technology, such Lyco’s Clean-Flow® blancher/cooker. Clean-Flow is one of the most automated, effective and rapid clean-in-place commercial cooking systems available, making it possible for rapid changeovers and multiple production runs per day. Lyco’s new lab can test products with hot water or direct steam, and cool with chilled water to 33°F.

The lab is designed to test with full-size production machines up to 72” or simulators.
