In modern days, fast food has increased the demand of baked food (shortenings). The baked food imposes the film of fat through the food in such a manner that, the protein & carbohydrate components do not cook to hardened mass.
Sterine + vegetable oil = all purpose shortenings
In this process fast solidification & subsequent crystallization function requires careful control. Normally it follows below path.
Mostly 8% to 12% nitrogen or air is introduced in chilled product to improve shortening textural appearance & color. Then stabilize it by making it more homogenous & better its creaming properties by contributing gas to enlarge dough & batter for resultant baking operations.
Margarine is a plastic fat food item containing 80% edible fat, 20% aqueous phase (particularly cultured skim milk), also salt, vitamin, food coloring and other additives aqueous phase provides an excellent growth media for harmful bacteria. So, it must be carefully prepared & sterilized, for proper blending these tanks are jacketed by hot water media. Depending on the undergone processes the final product is named like table margarine, tube filled margarine, puff pastry margarine etc.
Bakery Shortening Margarine Plants
Spectec Techno Projects Private Limited is a leading manufactures & Exporter of process equipments present Bakery Softening Plant for processing bakery softening. The plant will be capable of producing up to 1,000 kg/hour when cooling from an inlet temperature of 45 C to 23 /25 C suitable for semi-liquid filling into cans.
The capacity is dependent upon product formulations and inlet temperature of the product to be processed.
The plant consist of the following:
1. Interconnecting product pipeline.
2. Control panel.
3. Triplex plunger reciprocating pump.
4. Nitrogen gas purging system.
5. Essess processor-Heat transfer cylinder assembly.
6. Crystal distribution cum stabilizer.
1. ESSESS PROCESSOR
The two numbers of interconnected Essess Processor consisting of a single horizontal heat transfer cylinder assembly affixed on an open frame. The cylinder is jacketed and lagged for use with glycol solution. The removable heat transfer cylinder will be internally hard chrome plated. The offered product shaft is concentrically affixed within the cylinder and has four diametrically opposed rows of floating type scraper blades, and is driven by suitable motor hose proof to IP55 standard via belts and pulleys suitably guarded.
All the product contact parts are made of stainless steel AISI 304 materials. The scraping blades, seal parts and 'o' rings will be compatible with the product. The frame and the external product non-contact parts are in carbon steel and finished painted with metallic paint.
The Essess Processor chilling jacket is suitably insulted for destroying heat loss and cladded with stainless steel sheets for maintaining extreme hygiene.
2. CRYSTAL DISTRIBUTION CUM STABILIZER
Horizontally mounted and sequentially connected to the two number of Essess processors mentioned above. The cylinder has two rows of fixed pins at 180 with a concentric shaft carrying pins in a helical arrangement which inter mesh with fixed pins while rotating, driven through a gear box and a suitable motor hose proof to IP 55.
All product contact parts are made of stainless steel AISI 304 materials. The two numbers of heaters are provided for heating of the product in case of product solidification inside the product cylinder during power failure or production stoppage.
The cylinder is suitably insulated for eliminating heat loss and cladded with stainless sheets for maintaining utmost hygiene.
3. TRIPLEX PLUNGER RECIPROCATING PUMP
Triplex model single acting reciprocating plunger pump is used for feeding the product to the system. The capacity of the pump is 1,690 liters/hour driven by an appropriate motor hose proof to IP 55. All product contact parts are of stainless steel AISI / 316 materials and the product handling compartment is suitably jacketed for hot water / steam circulation for melting the product.
4. NITROGEN PURGING SYSTEM
It consists of pressure regulating value for regulating the line pressure with two numbers gauges for reading the line pressure and cylinder pressure. This system has flow meter with flow regulating value for alining the required amount of gas to be mixed with the products.
5. INTERCONNECTING PRODUCT PIPELINE
The Interconnecting Product Pipeline is jacketed for heating in case of product being solidified inside the pipeline. Furthermore, each section of the product pipeline is interconnected suitably for continuous heating of the entire length of the product pipeline.
6. CONTROL PANEL
Offered control panel not only enables smooth and trouble free handling of the product but also ensures safe operation of the plant. The unique design features of the control panel prevents mishandling of the plant thereby avoiding costly damages.
The unit does not start unless temperature of the product at certain specified locations is below the mere limit. At the same time the unit does not stop even the temperature ate the specific locations goes below the specified temperature during the operation of the unit. This safety factor avoids damage to the equipments of the plant when the product inside the equipments as well as pipeline is solid in case the plant is stopped due to power failure or product change over.
The Bakery Shortening Plant enumerated above is not the only capacity limit but also we can manufacture higher production capacity plants as may be required by the clients.
We can also procure other fabricated equipments like fat blenders of various capacities both stainless steel and carbon steel as per the specific requirements.
