Hot & lumpy filling –
BREITNER filling machines
Specific porduct properties
So far, we have assumed – for the sake of simplicity – that the product is filled at room temperature and is also completely homogeneous.
But even here there are particularities to be considered.
The industrial process is no different from grandma’s method: hot filling is sterile and ensures shelf life.
Jam or certain sauces are filled hot (typically above 80°C) to reduce germ contamination and thus improve shelf life.
Because viscosity is highly temperature-dependent, it is crucial for the precise filling process that the product in the product container is kept at a very even and constant temperature and protected from cooling.
Our double-walled and heated product vessel, possibly with an agitator to distribute the supplied heat, ensures a constant temperature throughout the vessel.
Lumpy and sedimentary products
An agitator, mounted at the top or bottom of the product vessel, ensures uniform mixing.
Which speed and which shape of agitator blade is appropriate? Your specialists and ours jointly determine this technical design. Here, too, we have decades of experience and can therefore advise you perfectly.
A piston filling machine is suitable for lumpy mixtures.
