Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR PREPARING COOLED OR FROZEN PRODUCTS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device (10) for preparing a cooled or frozen and/or foamed product, comprising:a product inlet (20) through which a certain quantity of fluid at ambient temperature, optionally also with air, enters the device, at a certain flow rate, this flow rate depending on the type of product to be prepared by the device;a processing chamber (108) through which the fluid flows and where it is processed, the processing chamber (108) defining a volume for the flow of fluid;at least a processing element (100, 200; 300) rotatable within the processing chamber (108) and configured to mix and/or scrap and/or foam by Couette Flow effect the fluid flowing through it;a cooling element (60) providinga certain cooling power configured to cool at least partially the processing chamber (108) which is at least partially in contact with the fluid. The invention further refers to a method for preparing a cooled or frozen and/or foamed productusing a device (10) as the one described, and also to the use of such a device (10) for preparing a cooled or frozen and/or foamed product.
