The Confection Industry

ConfectionMany people grew up with home-made candy, or local shops that made fresh candy and brought in some manufactured confections. The world has rapidly moved beyond that, with great demand for products worldwide, often having identical recipes. Many places have their own regional products, but even these require a level of consistency that is not achievable without strict process. Many mixing processes are involved in the creation of confections, from simple blending of slurries, dispersion of flavors and colors up to the creation of smooth cream fillings and agglomerate free coatings. Admix, Inc. is pleased to offer a broad range of mixing technologies, along with years of mixing industry experience, to help create the best final products rapidly and cost-effectively.

 

Question Solution
Making a simple liquid-liquid blend of color or flavor in a fluid stream?

Admix offers its Admixer™ line of static blenders continuous processing with no moving parts. Side stream injectors, heat transfer and temperature control with jackets, easily cleaned removable elements and specially polished finishes are all available. Great for handling jellies and viscous mixing needs. Meets 3-A TPV Standards #35-04.

Need to make a liquid slurry or increase the solids content in a sugar slurry?

For simple tank agitation, with volumes through 10,000 gallons, the Rotomixx® and Rotomaxx® lines offer fixed or portable tank agitation in all stainless steel construction. These units can provide simple blending for miscible fluids, solids incorporation and dispersion, or to maintain a suspension.

  • Designed to meet 3-A TPV Standards #73-01

Dispersing hard-to-wet powders that fisheye, agglomerate or even raft on the top of the vessel?

The Rotosolver combines good product motion with efficient pumping blades, a high shear mixing region to break down fisheyes and agglomerates.

  • Clean-in-Place
  • Meets 3-A TPV Standards #73-01

Developing new formulas or considering a different production method?

The BenchMix programmable high shear lab mixer can be configured with Rotomixx, Rotosolver and Rotostat heads for the greatest flexibility and accurate scale-up to full production.

We are so confident in our scale-up methods that we provide a process performance guarantee! Contact Us for details.

Running product through multiple passes in a high pressure homogenizer, filtering out lumps and fisheyes or trying to finish refine a product before baking, injecting or enrobing?

For in-line continuous processing, the DynaShear and Boston Shearmill high shear mixers and wet mills provide tight emulsions. Typical droplet size with the DynaShear is 2-3 microns and as fine as 0.5 microns with the Boston Shearmill. Break down tough fisheyes in a single pass, create furit fillings with consistent and desirable particle sizes without any mechanical modificaitons. Designed to run 24 hours a day / 7 days a week!

  • DynaShear Meets 3-A TPV Standards #36-01
  • Boston Shearmill Meets 3-A TPV Standards #36-01

Looking for improved, safer methods of incorporating powders?

Admix offers the VacuShear system to induct powders or liquids under vacuum, provide high shear mixing for immediate powder dispersion, and vacuum deaeration for the best finished product. Where air entrainment is not a concern, the Admix powder induction line-up of Optifeed, PIC and Fastfeed provide inline, continuous powder induction and disperion at powder feed rates in excess of 150#/min on a single pass.

Want to reduce waste and reclaim/rework out-of-spec product?

The Rotostat® rotor-stator mixer provides bulk tank motion without any in-tank bearing frame or supporting arms to block product flow. The Boston Shearmill will rework wasted producted and mill into a slurry that may be reused upstream in new product..

Want to make sweetened condensed milk on demand rather than purchase it in tankers?

Our VacuShear® system combines powder induction, high shear mixing and deaeration to save you money!
