For jelly producers looking for a hygienically designed complete system solution, Bosch Packaging Technology will showcase its latest developments at interpack 2017. On display at booth A31, Hall 6, will be the Rapidsolver – the dissolving solution for depositing masses – the mogul plant for starch molding, the drying room and the vertical form, fill and seal machine for high-speed packing of jelly products. With over 80 years of experience in the sector, Bosch developed a new system solution to address key market requirements, such as hygienic operation, reduced energy consumption and product waste, high output within compact footprint and ease of use. The company’s full portfolio for jellies includes technologies from raw material weighing and dosing to end-of-line packaging.
Martin Tanner, director product management and marketing, product division food, Bosch Packaging Technology, comments: “As a single-source solutions provider, we make sure to offer best-in-class complete system solutions that are designed for easy cleaning, operating and maintenance. The latest solution to be shown at interpack has several patent-pending technologies to boost output and significantly enhance energy efficiency.”
Effective processing and depositing of jelly candies
At interpack, Bosch will debut its upgraded Rapidsolver BLK 2500 BR for dissolving jelly masses, featuring a patent-pending heat recovery system used to preheat the mass, which offers up to 50 percent less energy consumption and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). In addition, energy-saving dissolving is achieved through the optimized design of the machine, allowing steam pressure to be reduced by 0.3 bar, further relieving thermal stress on the product and preserving its quality and taste. The machine’s new hygienic design enables shorter cleaning times by eliminating areas that can trap food residues and cause contamination.
Minimizing downtime and enhancing food safety
Hygienic design is also in the heart of the mogul plant, the HLM 35 Roto Step (RS), and the drying room from our partner Pinco SA – both made of stainless steel with multiple easy-to-clean features. The lateral movement of the depositor into the mogul’s frame allows for the clean-in-place function, reducing the maintenance time and protecting the tray transport system. Hygienically designed sieve baskets further reinforce food safety efforts – a smooth surface and eliminated edges prevent accumulation of product residues and enhance gentle handling of jellies. With up to 35 trays per minute, the HLM 35 RS`s integrated Roto Step advancing system features individual tray movement for high-speed starch moulding of gummy products.
