TBK cookers are designed to fit a wide variety of customer process needs.

Consistent and efficient continuous batch cooking

The TBK line from Ter Braak is a batched output cooking system with continuous or batched raw material input for production of both hard and soft confectionery products. The batched input models (TBK-50 and TBK-50/50) consist of a jacketed boiling pan for steam heating, stirrers, a vacuum head, and a tilt-turn output pan. Continuous input models (TBK-750 and TBK-1300) feature a highly controllable steam heated coil cooking system and fully automatic batch output. These cookers are optimized for slurry input of basic raw materials from Ter Braak’s Coolmix system, but TBK-50 includes an opening for manual introduction of raw materials. Control and integration options exist for PLC systems as- well-as highly automated Supervisory, control and data acquisition (SCADA) for complete system optimization.
