Baker Perkins continuously develops equipment to improve performance and reduce cost of ownership. Many developments are available as upgrades for existing machinery; they address problems such as insufficient capacity, poor reliability and outdated hygiene standards. Original machine performance can be exceeded, and service life given a worthwhile extension.
Available upgrades for Baker Perkins' Microfilm™ cookers include:
Existing Microfilm™ cookers can be upgraded to cook sugar free syrups using polyols. The unit is self contained and skid mounted and sits alongside the existing Microfilm™ cooker. No modifications to the cooker are required and the ability to cook sugar syrups is retained.
Milk Injection System
This enables Microfilm™ cookers to cook high milk or cream syrups without risk of burning. The milk injection system was developed by Baker Perkins to enable conventional hard candy cooking systems to produce high milk and cream candy products.
Indirect Condenser Conversion
This skid mounted unit reduces water and energy consumption on Microfilm™ cookers by using recirculating cooling water to condense flashed off vapour.
Flash vapour released by the product between the pre- and final-cook stages can be captured and passed through a heat exchanger to heat water for use in hot water systems or process applications.
High temperature condensate from the steam heating system for the Microfilm™ tube can be used to generate flash steam used in the syrup pre-cooker. This lowers the overall steam requirement.
