AUTOTHERM STEAM-SMOKE GENERATOR AD 54 / AD 56 / AD 66
The steam-smoking process developed by AUTOTHERM to perfection offers advantages, especially for hot-smoked products (e.g. Frankfurters), which are not achieved by any other smoking system.
The smoke is not generated by smouldering wood chips, but by superheated steam, which is pressed through the chips and in doing so absorbs all colouring and taste-giving constituents. This steam-smoke is fed into the chamber, where it condenses on the product. The smoking times are therefore extremely short.
Steam smoke is very colour stable and cannot be washed off, either by water or by steam. It is also soot-free and is significantly less contaminated with carcinogenic benzo(a)pyrene and other PAHs (Polymers Aromatic Hydrocarbons) than conventional smoke.
The high humidity during smoking means that the products do not dry out and therefore reduces weight losses.
The high humidity and temperature further increases the temperature in the core of the products during smoking. This shortens the following cooking process.


Due to the extremely short smoking times it is possible for one steam-smoke generator to supply up to three chambers (max of 4 trolleys/chamber).

Here a summary recap of the outstanding advantages of the AUTOTHERM smoke-steam system:

  • Higher effectiveness due to reduced weight loss. The producer gets a “more” of ready to sell products with the same product input.
  • Higher effectiveness due to shorter process times for smoking and cooking. Enables an additional 1 to 2 batches per day, depending on the process times.
  • On condensing the steam-smoke penetrates the sausage casing and the meat. The colour is retained even after showering and is more stable
  • healthier production for smoker operating personnel and product due to significantly lower contamination with contaminants such as polymer aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) – the values achieved now are already lower than the EU values mandatory from 2014.

AUTOTHERM
SAW DUST SMOKE GENERATOR AW 1 / AW 2 / AW3 / AW4

The AUTOTHERM AW series saw dust smoke generators are especially good for all cold-smoked products.
Moistened sawdust is ignited on a burning plate by a heating element. After the sawdust has been ignited a slight and controlled air draught enables it to continue to glow, just like in days gone by. A stirrer system provides a continuous supply of sawdust. The quantity of smoke produced can be adjusted by optionally adjusting the stirring intervals. The fine glow smoke is mild and natural; ideal for salami and ham.

AUTOTHERM WOOD CHIP SMOKE GENERATOR AWS 1 / AWS 2 / AWS 3 / AWS 4

Wood chip smoke generators can be used for both hot smoking and for cold smoking. They are therefore particularly suitable for connecting to universal chambers. Coarse wood chips are ignited in a wood chip bed by a heating element. A continuously controlled air supply maintains the glowing process. An agitator removes the ashes and adds new chips. The smoke intensity can be increased by adjusting the stirring interval. This generates a more intensive smoke, which lends the product an aromatic taste and a good colour.


All smoke generators are positioned to the chamber by taking into consideration the customer’s requirement and the circumstances on site.

A liquid smoke generator is also optionally available.
