Precision Performance of Grain Hydration

HydraTherm

Rice and grains require precision; Blentech understands hydration and cooking, separating those needs while automating the combination. Cook rice without efficiency loss and waste water needs. Increase yield with optimal hydration, and product quality with the perfect cook.

After years of experience with rice and grains, Blentech rethought how to cook the most consumed starch in the world. HydraTherm was engineered specifically to process not only all Asian style rices but also flavored rices such as pilaf independent of water and temperature needs. In addition, it can process mixed grains with addition such as quinoa and vegetables. The HydraTherm’s sanitary design reduces resources used for cleaning as well as material handling. Our sophisticated automation reduces labor and product handling promoting food safety. This technology makes eating rice more sustainable by eliminating starchy wastewater during cooking and yield loss from inefficient design. Feel good about the grains you serve when you cook them on a Blentech HydraTherm.
