CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION PLANT FOR CREAMS
Monday, 13 January 2020
TECNO 3 comes up with the line for the continuous production of lipid base creams used as finished product (spread creams), fillings, semi-finished products etc.
Ingredients dosage and mixing takes place inside the MIO-mixer, that is installed upon load cells. Powders and liquid ingredients arrive respectively from the hoppers placed on a platform and from the tanks located near the mixer. Their levels are kept constant thanks to a continuous feeding from their main storage units.
As soon as the recipe is completed and ready, the product is loaded into the intermediate storage tank equipped with stirrer and heated at the work temperature. Thanks to a dosing pump, the cream is fed into the refining unit consisting in a two-roll pre-refiner, a vertical roll refiner and two ball mills placed side by side.
Product passage through the balls is very rapid, in order to avoid an excessive forming of fine particles, thus obtaining excellent values of viscosity and shear rate.
Afterwards the refined cream is transferred, via a pump, to the storage tanks in order to be used for the subsequent processings.
