Dixie RDSW-3SS Retort with Regular Equipment

In-container sterilization, heat processing for food and pharmaceutical industries.

A.S.M.E Registered for 60 psi Working Pressure


Retorts for sterilization, processing and pressure cooking have large wing bolts and forged steel clamps. The cover is convex, hinged and balanced to help in circulation and drainage. It is machine-grooved for neoprene gasket to assure easy operation and long gasket life.

Three angled iron legs and 14 ready-arranged connections make Dixie Retorts sturdy, and easily installed. T–304 stainless steel resists rust and encourages sanitation. Steam distribution crosses below the crate and cooling water inlets 4″ below the overflow outlets are bonus features that characterize Dixie’s RDSW-3SS Retorts for R&D and for specialty canning operations.

A.S.M.E.-registered for 60 psi working pressure.
