A high shear mixer for sweet coating production optimizatin by Silverson Ltd
A confectionery company has purchased a UHS In-Line mixer after asking Silverson for help with dispersing pigment powder into a sweet coating.
Before contacting Silverson, the company had tried various different kitchen mixers and conventional agitators, but hadn't been able to achieve a mixture without agglomerates. Although the remaining agglomerates didn't allow to get a shiny, smooth finish.
To try to solve this problem, Silverson ran some lab trials with the company using a mixer with standard mixing assembly and General Purpose Disintegrating Head.
The Customer was completely satisfied with the results from the lab trial. The improved dispersion obtained from high shear mixing resulted making adjustments to Customer's recipe and using significantly less pigments to get the desired colour shades, saving money, and also achieved the shiny, smooth finish they wanted for their coatings.
