According to the Melbourne-based company, its Inox 300L Instantisers can dissolve soluble products in “less than five minutes” for complete hydration, total liquefaction and no “burn-on” that can occur with conventional systems.
"The specially designed impellor system combined with an appropriate vessel shape, produce a high level of turbulence to dissolve and disperse almost any food product in the most efficient and thorough manner available," claimed the firm.
The company, which offers a range of stainless steel fabrication services to the food industry, added that the Inox 300L Instantisers can be used in a variety of food applications.
Dissolve and disperse
In terms of dissolving, Inox claims the technology can stabilise emulsifiers and gums, such as sugar, CMC, guar and gelatine, as well as hard or frozen products such as butter, juice concentrates, whey solids and lactose.
It also has the capacity to dilute products, such as concentrated fruit purees for pastries and puddings, and to disperse powders, like flour or cocoa powder.
In terms of 'de-aerating', the machinery can work ice cream for re-use or refreeze, and can "rehydrate powdered eggs, milk, whey, and potato for dips and batters," said the Australian firm.
Options and capacity
Options for the instantisers include an “in-line operation allowing continuous addition of ingredients from the top with continuous discharge from the agitator element,” said Inox.
Additional options are CIP spray head assembly, standard mechanical shaft seal arrangement or ‘flush’ seal type, two impellor sizes and insulated tank body with "50mm heavy density fibreglass cased in stainless steel."
Available in capacities ranging from 100L to 5000L, the firm explained the machines are also available with either direct coupled motor drive or in a low line design with motor mounted to side of unit.
In terms of finishes, the Inox 300L Instantisers are available in 304 or 316 S/S construction “finished to meet food industry standards”, said Inox, as well as 120 or 180 Grit polished, or glass bead.
"Inox Fabrications Australia have a new 300L Instantisers demo unit available for trials and testing purposes of product mixing requirements," concluded the firm, which is based at Epping in Melbourne's northern industrial belt.
