Weighs and mixes up to 16 dry and liquid confectionery ingredients into a homogeneous slurry. Individual ingredients are fed via a weigh hopper into the mixer and mixed during the fill cycle to produce a consistent slurry. Batches are fed from the Autofeed mixing tank to two reservoir tanks to facilitate a continuous feed to the cooker.
Firstly, sugar slurry is dissolved and partially cooked in a plate heat exchanger. Secondly, cooking to final moisture takes place in the Microfilm™ rotor. This creates a thin film of syrup which cooks rapidly without process inversion or burning of dairy ingredients.
Incorporates colours and flavours into the cooked syrup via a gravity split feed system. Each colouring and flavouring system is specified to match the level of automation required by the customer and the characteristics of the depositing system.
Continuously deposits syrup at final moisture into solid moulds using a starch-free process. Sticks are then placed accurately and consistently by an automatic insertion system that keeps the sticks straight until the product has set.
- Ball Lollipops
Baker Perkins’ completely automated, high capacity ball and double-ball lollipop depositing technology produces a higher quality lollipop, gives the potential for an almost unlimited product variety, and offers greater production flexibility compared to die forming processes.
The ServoForm™ lollipop depositor can produce a wide range of lollipops in up to four colours, with a multi-component capability providing solid, layered and striped options for a variety of ball and double-ball lollipops.
Centre-filled lollipops, introducing fillings such as toffee or chewy centres, can be deposited to add a new range of textures to a product portfolio. All products can be produced in sugar-free varieties, and there is also the ability to add medicinal or nutraceutical elements.
The ServoForm™ lollipop depositor continuously deposits syrup into solid moulds using a starch-free process. Sticks are then placed accurately and consistently by an automatic insertion system that keeps the sticks straight until the product has set.
As well as the ServoForm™ lollipop depositor, Baker Perkins’ lollipop systems include automatic weighing, feeding, dissolving, and colour / flavour / acid addition, plus the Microfilm™ Cooker - the industry standard for sugar and sugar-free high boiled lollipops and candies.
