Key benefits

Wide range of production capabilities

The PolyCool cooling die can be easily used for various protein sources such as soy, pulses, oilseeds as well as newer ingredients like microalgae or insects. This offers you the flexibility to achieve fish- or meat-like textures.

Wing door design for fast and convenient cleaning to maximize food safety

Excellent accessibility to all of the product contact areas through the wing door allows fast and easy cleaning between trails for maximizing hygiene standards.

High performance

The PolyCool 500 cooling die allows a fully customizable configuration and boosts productivity with the ability to deliver up to 500 kg of wet textured products per hour.

Large-scale production

PolyCool 500

Our high-performance PolyCool 500 is the first cooling die, which matches the standards of industry-scale production with the ability to deliver a throughput of about 500 kg/h for different ingredients and novel textures. Through its hygienic wing door design and the excellent accessibility the PolyCool is easy to maintain and operate, and maximizes food safety.

Small-scale production

PolyCool 50

The PolyCool 50 with a throughput of 50 kg/h is excellent for research purposes and product developments. This level of throughput allows the investigation of different recipes and process parameters without requiring enormous amounts of raw materials. Our cooling die is designed to mimic meat- and fish-like textures.

We can develop both sustainable and cost-effective solutions for large-scale protein processors that cover the whole value chain. With this holistic process knowledge, reliable machines and large-scale performance, Bühler can be seen as the market leader from the bean to the burger.

Test new products, shapes, recipes, textures, technologies in one of our Extrusion Application Centers in Uzwil (CH), Changzhou and Wuxi (CN) as well as Minneapolis (USA), or use the opportunities of the innovation center in Singapore. Bühler’s processing expertise will create a unique offering to those developing new products.
