The Shaffer® VerTech® refrigeration jacket offers bakeries peak performance and efficiency, with the most effective, durable and energy efficient bowl cooling available. The VerTech® jacket is specifically designed for triple roller bar mixers that demand mixing durability; easily holding up to stiff doughs and high HP machines.
New design is engineered to distribute dough force over a larger area and results in 75% reduction of stress on channel material and 63% reduction of stress on weld joints.
The VerTech® refrigeration jacket is manufactured in discrete steps with three definitive inspection points for maximum quality control.
New design provides same heat transfer with up to 46% reduction in pressure drop over corrugated jacket with turbulence pins, resulting in less energy to operate the glycol system.
In accelerated fatigue testing on a full-scale model, using over twice the force of a low absorption dough, the VerTech® jacket lasted over 40x longer than other conventional jackets.
Accelerated Fatigue Test Results
