World leader in Gums & Jellies
Clear, fresh, consistent flavour, colour and structure: the trick is to use the properties of all the ingredients to optimally develop the structure . The preparation and conditioning plants for Gum and Jelly masses are suitable for all hydrocolloids whether of vegetable (agar, pectin, starch, carrageenan, gum arabic) or animal (gelatin) origin.
T-GEL – TANIS WEIGHER
Crucial for the production process of consistent, clear gums and jellies is the extremely careful weighing and mixing of ingredients, exactly according to the recipe. During the mixing process the solution is heated and emulsified. To avoid inaccuracy and loss of Gel force the colloid(s) are dosed directly into the batch; for low percentages loss-in-weight units are applied.
T-GEL – TANIS COILCOOKER
The premix is pumped through a specially designed stainless steel heat exchanger creating a clear solution in no time. The solution is quickly cooled by vacuum after heating to fix the dry substance value and avoid deterioration of the mass. The vacuum also removes any air bubbles from the solution, creating a clear mass ready to pump.
T-GEL – TANIS ABS
The additives are dosed in a batch by weight, in order to achieve accurate dosing independent of the density of the additive. The module weighs separate quantities of colouring, flavouring, acid solution and fruit concentrate, etc. The batch or mass is weighed into the blending vessel so no level probes, avoiding the risk of contamination and making everything easy to clean.
An intermediate vessel – on a load cell to control the level – between the blending vessel and the hopper compartment of the depositing plant, is for a higher capacity or when the hopper of the mogul is too small.
T-ROOM – CONDITIONING ROOM
The heart of the system is a modular build room with an air handler delivering airflow across the room. The physical dimensions of the room are determined by the air distribution, logistical demands and the building confinements.
The number of trays in one room depends on the operation, with a large variety of products usually requiring smaller rooms. Obviously the chosen optimum size has to fit into the building. The modular system makes it easy to adapt the design to requirements.
