Stainless Steel Skid

Next to separate tanks and process equipment, Gpi designs and produces also integrated solutions on a frame, better known as skids. You can think of a preparation vessel in combination with a  surface heat exhanger, control panel, the right valve train and piping.

Because Gpi designs the entire skid, you are assured that the technology supplied works seamlessly together and delivers the highest possible product and process quality.

The skid is supplied plug-and-play, so that you are hindered as little as possible in your production environment during installation.

Stainless Steel Skid

Pick the right configuration

We understand that every application is different. That is why we design our skids specifically to your specifications, so that we can be sure that the skid best suits your product and process.

Do you prefer certain brands in terms of component choice? Fine. Do you want us to choose the best components for you? No problem.

Gpi has good relationships with various component suppliers such as pumps, valves and instruments.

Finishing levels

Gpi uses a high level of quality as standard. We always design our skids with the highest possible level of hygiene.

We take into account the drain possibility, we avoid blind spots and our frames can be built in a so-called diamond frame, whereby the tubes are tilted. In this way, as little dirt as possible remains on your skid frame.

Batter Coating Preparation System

The Batterline is a system for high volume, continuous preparation of batter, as typically seen in the potato- meat and fi sh processing industries. The liquid batter is applied via an applicator, where product is covered in a thin layer before they are baked in the oven. This ‘battering’ or ‘coating’ is done to give the product certain additional properties, such as ‘bite’ (crispness), color or taste.

How it works

Batter Coating Preparation System - powder handling render

Powder handling

The first part of the Batterline is the powder handling part. The dry powder can be brought to the line in big bags or smaller bags. The powder is unloaded by a big bag station.

From that point, the powder can be transported by a transport screw or by vacuum. Working with vacuum transport allows you to keep the dry part of the line separated from the wet parts.

The powder is transported to a powder hopper, where the second part of the line starts.

Batter preparation system

In the second part of the Batterline, the powder is mixed with the water. A volumetric feeder doses the correct amount of powder into the mixing system, where it will meet the correct water supply.

The batter is automatically mixed into the right ratio. The mixed batter goes to one of the buffer tanks where it can settle till ready. The batter mix will alternately goes into one of the buffer tanks, which gives you a continuous flow of mixed batter.

Once the batter is settled, it will be pumped to the working tank, part three.

Batter return unit

The batter in the working tank, is pumped to the applicator. It passes one or more shell-and-tube heat exchangers to get the optimal temperature. The batter not picked up by the end-product is returned to the working tank, after passing a particle filter. All waste coming with the returned batter, like pieces of French Fries, will be filtered out and disposed.
