Food Processing Ovens

All About the Airflow

Steam Ovens

Our line of industrial steam ovens come equipped with a cooking system that injects large volumes of live steam into the cabinet to cook a variety of products, such as cook-in-bag, plastic casing, meal pouches, and exposed products.

Live steam cooking retains product moisture during the cook cycle and does not require airflow, eliminating the additional equipment found on a smokehouse or dehydrator. This makes our steam ovens the economical choice for cooking your product.

Consistent product yields and texture are possible in a Fusion Tech steam oven.

CIP Skid

A high capacity clean-in-place tank and pumping system designed to efficiently and effectively clean and sanitize a Fusion Tech Oven.

I’ve been in the meat industry for 33 years and have used all kinds of equipment, but now I’m a Fusion Tech customer for life. I have used Enviro-Pak horizontal smokehouses, Alkar smokehouses, as well as others, and nothing compares to the Cove Smokehouses. I have an older 2-Truck Alkar smokehouse that was retrofitted with the Fusion Tech Total-Flow-Control (TFC) airflow system. With the TFC system, now I can use that smokehouse for all of my jerky products. The TFC allows me to concentrate the airflow virtually anywhere I want in the oven, so it allows me to put more capacity on a rack and still maintain excellent consistency. I basically get two smokehouses in one with the Fusion Tech smokehouse, a horizontal and a vertical smokehouse. The Fusion Tech oven gives me better consistency and 20% more capacity per rack.
