Automation and Refurbishment

Automation of plants and refurbishment of existing plants and equipment.


• Mixer (French - Mélangeur)

Mixer is a machine foreseen to operate in small capacity plants intended for manufacture of chocolate liquor and chocolate-based products, as well as for manufacture of special kinds of chocolates.

Mixer is also used for manufacture of other confectionery masses made of dry powdery and fatty raw materials such as fatty chocolate desert fillings and waffle products (custards and semi-products).

Machine description:

Mixer is made of a rotating decanter with the granite bottom and two massive rotating dough rollers.

Thanks to their own weight, dough rollers adhere to the bottom that slowly rotates them.

The clearance between rollers and the bottom is adjustable to achieve the required thickness of the paste layer made of processed ingredients.

The machine is equipped with cleaners and guides that scrape the mass from the decanter and rollers and guide it between the decanter bottom and rollers.

The finished mass is guided from the mixer by a screw transporter.

• Mixers

Mixer is used for making various types of creams that have a fat share above 30 %. It is suitable for mixing waffle product creams. The cream mixing procedure is extremely fast – it lasts for only a few minutes.

Feed materials are being dosed to mixer through a batch process and after just a few minutes the cream is homogenised and ready to use. The cream is automatically poured out from the mixer with the compressed air.

The mixer is a double wall machine apt for the temperature regime control, while maintenance of the target temperature results in an aimed cream consistency.

• Fat plasticiser

Fat plasticisers are used for transformation of fat from the solid form (fat blocks) to the “plastic” form suitable for transportation and further making and kneading of the dough.

A fat plasticiser system consists of a block cutter, double walled heated pipeline, plasticiser and plasticised fat tank. The fat block cutter cuts the blocks of fat conditioned to the ambient temperature into pieces to make it easier for the fat plasticiser to process it to the plastic phase. The fat is then transported to the tank by a pump where another pump and the double walled pipeline wait for it to transport it to dough mixers. Such a system enables maintenance of the fat quality regarding its viscosity and the temperature resulting in a stabile quality of the dough kneading. The temperature of the double walled pipeline, block cutters and plasticisers is regulated automatically.

• Cocoa paste preparation machine

Cocoa paste preparation machine is a double walled vessel with a mixer under pressure.

The preparation machine has a mixer connected to an electric motor. Its double walls are steam heated. The cocoa paste is pumped up from an auxiliary tank into the cocoa paste preparation machine that mixes and heats it, then it adds the needed amount of potash or water and processes it for a predetermined amount of time. Then the preparation machine closes and switches the vacuum on to process the cocoa paste for another predetermined time period. The plant is fully automatic and PLC controlled.

• Fat melting device

Fat melting device is a vessel with a grid and a cover heated by the steam or hot water.

It is used to melt fat blocks or cocoa butter; it transforms the solid-state fat into the liquid state.

Fat blocks have to be placed on the grid heated by the steam or hot water. Fat or butter are melting and dripping to the bottom from where they are transported to the collection tank by the pump placed on the fat melting device bottom.

Fat melting machine has the sufficient amount of contact surfaces for an optimum heat transfer. Fat melting machine is insulated in such a manner that it does not emit any heat outwards.

• Waffle pastry production plant

Waffle pastry production plant represents a complete solution for making waffle dough for waffle products. It is fully automatic and PLC controlled. It can even memorise your recipes.

The plant consists of flour reception tanks with a mixer and probes for signalling the minimum and maximum quantity of flour, balance integrated mixers for dough kneading (mixers are integrated into measuring cells), flour screw conveyors, fat tanks (double walled heated and insulated tanks), tanks for salt and sodium solutions, tanks for dough storing with sieves, pumps and automatic water dispenser.

Mixing and kneading are key processes for dough making. Mixers make homogenous dough in a very short time.

• Automated confectionery plant

The confectionery (caramel) product plant consists of a pre-cooker, cooker, vacuum cooker and rotary cooker. It is made of high-quality stainless steel and can have various capacities. The complete process is PLC controlled enabling endless manufacture of confectionery mass.

• Concha

Concha is a machine used for manufacture of mixing chocolate and forming of chocolate mass. Modern conchas are heated and covered vessels comprising large, multi-armed mixer shafts that press the chocolate to the vessel wall. Conching is a critical procedure since it has a great influence to the chocolate quality. There are two main conching targets: improvement of chocolate consistency and taste. The main conching function is simultaneous removal of undesired tastes and keeping of wished flavours. Conching is the decisive step in creation of the typical chocolate taste. As chocolate mass is coming over a five-roll refiner, it is being transformed into dry flaked powder. With the increase of the temperature and energy within the concha, the fluffy powder stars to disintegrate and relieve fat creating a pasty mass. The relieved fat wrap sugar particles increasing gradually the chocolate flow. Rotary mixing blades inside the concha mix, knead, move the mass torsionally and spread it, pushing the air through it assuring its perfectly homogenised texture. All the residual humidity and unwished flavours evaporate during that phase. All the wished flavour components are created through a close contact of sugar, powdered milk and cocoa mass.

We manufacture various types of batch process type conchas of various capacities with one, two or three shafts resulting in maximum energy efficiency and improved conching productivity.
