Bosch Packaging Technology will showcase solutions for jelly producers at interpack 2017 in Düsseldorf, Germany from May 4-10.
The Rapidsolver BLK 2500 BR has been upgraded for dissolving jelly masses.
It has a patent-pending heat recovery system used to preheat the mass, which offers up to 50% less energy consumption and reduced total cost of ownership.
In addition, energy-saving dissolving is achieved through the optimized design of the machine, allowing steam pressure to be reduced by 0.3 bar.
This relieves thermal stress on the product and preserving its quality and taste.
The machine’s new hygienic design enables shorter cleaning times by eliminating areas that can trap food residues and cause contamination.
Meanwhile, the mogul plant HLM 35 Roto Step (RS) and the drying room from Bosch’s partner Pinco SA are made of stainless steel with easy-to-clean features.
The lateral movement of the depositor into the mogul’s frame allows for the clean-in-place function, reducing the maintenance time and protecting the tray transport system.
The sieve baskets have smooth surfaces and eliminated edges to prevent accumulation of product residues and enhance gentle handling of jellies.
With up to 35 trays per minute, the HLM 35 RS’ integrated Roto Step advancing system features individual tray movement for high-speed starch molding of gummy products.
Hygienic packaging design
Meanwhile, Bosch’s new SVC 1820 BH bagger has a stainless steel frame, while its surfaces are rounded and tilted.
It has few flat parts to prevent trapping food particles.
There are no corners or crevices, significantly reducing the possibility of bacterial build-up and facilitating cleaning.
The SVC has an integrated Yamato multihead weigher, coupled with patent-pending sensor-controlled drop-time detection.
This allows it to automatically adjust machine settings for product transfer – optimizing speed and enabling the highest possible output per product type.
Additionally, the next generation Human Machine Interface HMI 4.0 and a format part management system reduce the risk of operator error by indicating whether all format parts are in place and match the selected bag configurations, allowing easy set-up and fast changeovers for increased uptime.
