Hot-smoking, cooking,
cooling & much more

The AEROMAT COMPOUND from VETEC ANLAGENBAU combines the tried and tested technology of a hot-smoking and cooking installation with an intensive cooling section. In the first step, your product undergoes the following processes: Reddening, drying, warm and hot-smoking, boiling, cooking and hot-air cooking in the hot-smoking and cooking section. The food is then cooled down with shower water and air in the intensive cooling section. The semi-continuous handling system makes the AEROMAT COMPOUND a flexible solution for your meat product production.

Technology/ Benefits

The AEROMAT COMPOUND is the key to rational design of your production processes. Automatic transport of your products from hot to cold treatment makes a decisive contribution to consistent product quality and minimal weight losses. At the same time, interventions in the process are reduced as transport into the cooling section without outside intervention allows hygienic separation between the raw and production sections. There is no need for staff to enter hot chambers, which noticeably improves working conditions.

All you have to do is position your trolleys at the first position in the hot-smoking and cooking section. The electric handling device moves each trolley to the correct position. After loading the installation, start your program.

As soon as the heat treatment is complete, the AEROMAT COMPOUND opens the automatic doors to the intensive cooling section and transports your products into it. There, they are immediately cooled to packaging temperature and dried with shower water and cold air. At the end of the program, the handling system transfers the trolleys to you individually for subsequent processes such as packing. Because of the flexible transport in both directions, it is possible to use only the hot-smoking or intensive cooling section if production changeovers require this.

The handling device is totally reliable even with very high trolley weights.


  • Elimination of cost-intensive cooling surfaces for cooling down your products, and low cleaning costs
  • Reduction in germs due to elimination of manual interventions in the process chain
  • Minimal bacterial infestation time due to rapid pass through the critical temperature range of 40°C - 15°C
