Turbofilm™ Mini

  • Benefits

    The Turbofilm™ Mini is a compact unit for the continuous cooking of syrups for soft confectionery (pectin, gelatin or blends) or hard candy. Combining continuous dissolving and cooking into a compact, portable module brings the benefits of high efficiency, low energy use and simplicity of operation.

    Suitable for production and lab applications

    The Turbofilm™ Mini is a small continuous cooking system designed for start-ups and niche manufacturers, or experimental and development work in larger operations. It combines dissolving and cooking operations into one cost-effective system ideally suited to lower output situations.

    Efficient production of gummies, jellies and hard candy

    Product consistency is more achievable compared to a manual batch process, while continuous cooking of the product results in low waste.

    Easy to operate, clean and maintain

    The Turbofilm™ Mini is designed for easy installation and maximum efficiency. The compact, skid mounted unit has a small footprint, is easy to install, and all parts are readily accessible for cleaning and maintenance. Full control of operations and recipes is provided via the intuitive HMI on the unit.
