Hard Candy

Attractive, high quality, colourful candies

Hard Candy Typical Production Line

Process - Hard Candy
Autofeed

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.

Microfilm™ 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.

Colour / Flavour Addition

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.

Baker Perkins’ ServoForm™ hard candy systems facilitate the production of an extensive range of attractive, high quality and colourful confectionery that cover both sugar and sugar-free recipes.

Widest product choice

ServoForm™ depositors can produce multi-colour, multi-component candies in one, two, three and four colours; in stripes, layers or random patterns, with one or two hard or soft centre-fills, and with every possible colour and flavour.

Highest quality

Products have excellent appearance, smoothness and flavour release, while the system ensures complete control throughout the line for extremely high dimensional, shape and weight accuracy with negligible scrap rates.

Easy to use and maintain

Without starch, hygiene is maximised and labour requirements are low. High efficiency means negligible waste and low energy consumption.
