Chocolates are used in many industries in the form of cocoa butter, cocoa liquor and chocolate powder to make many food ingredients. Chocolates are obtained from the seeds called cocoa seeds.
The largest manufacturer of chocolate product wanted sieving and filtering solution in their processing plant. They were facing the problem of contamination in the liquid chocolate as well as in the raw material ingredients.
Cocoa beans are removed from cocoa pods, fermented, dried and sent to make liquid chocolate. Liquid chocolate manufacturer transports the container full of chocolate liquor at about 40 degree Celsius. They used to check screen the liquid with a conventional perforated sheet. The disadvantage of this approach was the open environment. Cocoa liquor gets easily contaminated by human intervention. We soon realised the consequences of not changing the current system when our batch starts rejected by the quality department.
Chocolate liquid solidify in normal temperature and blocks the perforated sheet openings and manual cleaning becomes a time-consuming job. Moreover, there are different raw materials used as ingredients in making chocolate products which needs to be check sieve before mixing the ingredients. Sugar, coconut powder, fruit & nuts, milk, alcohol etc are used as ingredient to make chocolate products.
The manufacturer was hunting for the sieving & filtering solution expert who can assist them to resolve the above issue. They approached Galaxy Sivtek and let the SIVTEK expert to understand the situation. Our sieving expert explained that, the chocolate is the kind of liquid which requires to maintain the temperature throughout the process. Galaxy Sivtek have build up a filter which fits just right into your requirement, The SIVTEK Self Cleaning Filter with jacketing system.
