VerTech® Refrigeration Jacket
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.
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.
The VerTech® refrigeration jacket is manufactured in discrete steps with three definitive inspection points for maximum quality control.
The VerTech® refrigeration jacket comes standard on all Shaffer® Triple Roller Bar Mixers. For additional dough cooling needs, we offer:
- Refrigerated agitator cooling (U.S. Patent No. 9,295,956)
- Breaker bar cooling
VerTech® jackets can also be retrofit for the following mixers:
Shaffer | Peerless | BEW | AMF | BP | APV
In accelerated fatigue testing on a fullscale 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
Results from finite element analysis and full-scale, accelerated fatigue testing
- Reduced stress on refrigeration channels by 75%
- Reduced stress on weld joints by 63%
- Reduced glycol system pressure drop (compared with a corrugated jacket with turbulence pins) by 46%
- Increased life of jacket by 40%
