Celsimix for fully continuous mixing and heating in the production of brittle candy
Thursday 23 February 2012During Interpack in Germany a Celsimix was displayed on the stand of the Tanis Group from Made (the Netherlands). This Celsimix is part of a brittle candy production line engineered by the Tanis Group.
Celsimix for brittle candy production
‘Brittle candy’ is a crunchy but brittle type of confectionery. In a fully continuous process the Celsimix boils the pre-heated glucose syrup to form caramel, adding almonds to this and mixing it to form a homogenous mass.
The Celsimix is heated using thermal oil to a temperature of 280 degrees. The mixer is fitted with two screws and has a capacity of 400 kg/hour. To prevent the product sticking and to facilitate cleaning, everything that comes into contact with the product is polished to a high gloss. Both screws can also be removed completely for thorough cleaning. The Celsimix is suitable for a MAWP (Maximum Allowable Working Pressure) of 5 bar and complies with the PED standard (Pressure Equipment Directive) and EN-13445 (European standard for unfired pressure vessels).
