Equipment for the production of marmalade and pastilles.

In the confectionery industry, the production of marmalade and pastilles is relatively small.

The raw materials for their production are fruit and berry preparations and sugar. Fruits and berries in this production are mainly used in canned form.

(Pulp or puree). The pulp is converted into fruit and berry puree.

In the process of making marmalade and marshmallow, an important role is played by the processes of gelling. Applesauce contains pectin, which is a good student educator.

In the production of jelly marmalade, agar and agaroid prepared from seaweed, as well as apple, beet and citrus pectin are used as gelling components.

Our confectionery industry produces the following types of jelly-pastilles:

 Fruit and berry marmalade:

  • molded - made in the form of individual products of various configurations by pouring marmalade mass into rigid forms;
  • carved - made by cutting the marmalade layer into individual sticks;
  • plastic - it turns out by pouring marmalade mass into boxes filled with parchment, or into tin and cardboard boxes;
  • fruit yams - are produced from apricot, cornel, plum and other types of mashed potatoes by casting boiled mass into sugar or powdered sugar.

 Fruit jelly:

  • molded - made in the form of individual products of various configurations by casting marmalade mass into rigid forms;
  • three-layer - produced by cutting a three-layer marmalade layer into individual rectangular or diamond-shaped bars. The upper and lower layers are obtained from the marmalade mass, the middle - from jelly, whipped on proteins.
  • lemon and orange slices - are made in the form of semicircular slices of lemon and orange by cutting the semi-cylindrical marmalade loaves with the crust into separate slices.

 Pastila products:

  • carved marshmallow - produced in the form of rectangular products obtained by cutting the pastille layer;
  • marshmallow - gum sticks - is produced in the form of products of spherical or oval shape, formed by jigging halves with their subsequent gluing.

Carved marshmallow after molding is dried in the dryer. After molding, the marshmallow matures in the workshop or in special chambers.

The production of the listed marmalade-pastila is carried out on semi-mechanized and mechanized production lines. Each of the marmalade paste production lines usually consists of the following equipment groups:

station for the preparation of prescription blends (mixtures of fruit and sugar-syrup-agar syrup);

Equipment for molding blanks of products (castings jelly products, marmalade seams, pastes, jigging marshmallow pieces, etc...), their vystoyki, drying and cooling;

Equipment for finishing (sugar dusting, broadcasting), filling or packing products in retail packaging.

 The computer-hardware circuits manufacturing marmalade and pastilles

Mechanized production line for the production of shaped apple marmalade. The line (fig. 7.1) consists of a recipe and cooking station, a marmalado dispenser and a dryer. Mashed potatoes, previously rubbed on a wiping machine through a sieve with a cell diameter of 1,5 mm, are pumped into the 7 mixers, which are used to make a blended mashed potatoes in order to obtain a homogeneous mass of mashed potatoes of necessary acidity and gelling ability.

From faucets puree using 2 pump pumped into the car wiper 3 to control rubbing through a sieve with holes of 0,8 mm. Pureed mashed metal descent enters the collecting bag 4 further gear pump 5 10 pumped into the mixer for sugar-apple mixture. The required amount is determined by the level puree.

The mixer has a horizontal mechanical stirrer with U-shaped blades, mounted on a shaft along a helical line. Sugar, shore, sodium lactate, syrup and waste are loaded into the 10 mixer according to the recipe. Before being loaded into the mixer, granulated sugar is sifted, passed through magnetic catchers, and is supplied to the 7 bunker of 6 autoweights by a bucket elevator. Molasses is supplied from the measuring tank 8, and sodium lactate from the tank 9.

From the mixer, the sugar-apple mixture is fed by an 12 gear pump through the 11 filter to the 13 digester with a stirrer where it is brought to a boil. Next, with the 14 plunger pump, the mixture is fed to the 15 continuous three-chamber cooker for vacuum-free boiling. From the cooker, the boiled mass enters the 16 steam trap. The final moisture content of the marmalade mass is 30 — 32%, the mass temperature at the outlet is 106 — 107 ° С.

The boiled mass from the 16 steam trap enters the 17 tempering machine, and from there the 18 plunger dosing pump into the 21 casting head of the casting machine. The essence, food coloring and acid are added to the 20 mixer. There are only four mixers. The casting head is also divided into 4 sections, which allows you to cast marmalade of four colors.

 Equipment for the manufacture of marmalade

Machinery for making marmalade-pastilla are devices for boiling marmalade mass and a machine for forming blanks for marmalade products: marmalade machine for tin fruit and jelly marmalade, cutting machines for jelly marmalade and equipment for making lemon and orange slices. The shaped marmalade blanks are dried in a dryer.

When boiling marmalade masses, excess moisture is removed from the sugar-apple mixture and at the same time the removal of sulfur dioxide - sulfur oxide (IV), which was used to preserve the applesauce. Sugar-apple mixture has an initial moisture content of 43-45%, sugar-and-syrup agar syrup 30 - 33%. Final moisture of marmalade

mass depends on the formulation and type of products. It ranges from 24 — 33%.

For boiling marmalade masses in large enterprises, coil ovens of continuous action are used, and in enterprises with a small output, three-chamber, spherical or universal vacuum cooking apparatuses are used.

Marmeladootlivochny unit SHF1-M6. The unit is intended for the production of shaped apple and jelly marmalade by casting the mass into molds. The following operations are performed on the unit: dosing of flavoring and coloring matter and mixing them with the marmalade mass; simultaneous casting of marmalade mass of four colors; gelatinization of marmalade in forms; extraction of marmalade from forms on trays; sprinkling of jelly marmalade with sugar; feed trays from the feeder to the sampling mechanism; washing forms.

Marmeladootlivochny unit SHF1-M6 (fig. 7.4) consists of a gelling chamber, a casting head, a conveyor with molds and a feeder for trays.Marmeladootlivochny unit SHF1-M6.

A mixture of acid, dye and essence is mixed with the marmalade mass in a vertical hopper 3. There are four such hoppers on the unit, therefore, it is possible to prepare a marmalade mass of four colors. A portion of the prepared marmalade mass is pumped by metering pumps 4 through the pipeline 5 to the corresponding sections of the hopper 6. The hopper has four sections and is equipped with a jacket for hot water circulation. The temperature of the mass is controlled by a thermometer 7. The hopper has a shaft with blades, which during operation continuously rotates and mixes the mass with the blades, preventing it from accumulating on the walls of the hopper.

Attached to the bottom of the hopper is a spool box 8, containing 20 vertical plungers and spools. The plungers and spools are driven through a system of levers from the camshaft. Regulation of the volume of the poured marmalade mass is provided for on the common drive and on each plunger separately, which allows to achieve accurate dosage of the portion.

Devices for preparing and casting memeladic mass are located above the 9 conveyor with forms. It consists of two infinite chains with four plates attached to them, each of which has two rows of stamped molds of various configurations with a relief pattern. The volume of the mold is designed for one product with a mass of 14.

Forms with the marmalade mass cast in them are sent to the gelling chamber 2. It is a closed insulated cabinet, divided into upper and lower compartments. In the upper compartment is moving multi-tiered chain conveyor with forms. In the lower compartment is an air cooler, consisting of two brine batteries and a fan installation. The air passing through the air cooler is cooled and then supplied to cool the marmalade. On the overlap of the gelling chamber, two 1 nozzles of rectangular cross section are installed for suctioning fresh air and removing humidified air. Nozzles overlap with gate valves.

At the end of the gelling, the forms with the marmalade are turned upside down out of the gelling chamber and transferred to the sampling mechanism. It is installed inside the machine frame and consists of a heater and a pneumatic shaker. When heated, the surface of the products is melted and their connection with the mold material is weakened. In addition, compressed air is supplied to the backs of the cells in which 8 — 10 holes have been drilled with a diameter of 0,3 mm. By air pressure, the marmalade is pushed onto trays.

Trays are installed in the hopper of the 11 feed conveyor. It separates the bottom tray from the stack and inserts the tray into the machine. The system of two vertical shelf conveyors rises to the sampling mechanism and, after filling with marmalade, is taken out of the machine with the 10 conveyor.

During the transition to the release of jelly marmalade on the conveyor 10 conveyor feed trays additionally set the belt conveyor, which is sampled marmalade. The conveyor dumps marmalade into trays with sugar. Gelling time can be changed using the variator included in the drive of the unit.

The basic technological scheme of the unit ШФ1-М6 is shown in fig. 7. 1 (pos. 19 — 24, 33 — 37).

In the funnel of the 5 mechanism from the 6 whipping machine, a white whipped mass is fed for the inner layer of the crust. The mass is poured out through the slotted crane of the mechanism and is applied in an even layer on the first layer. Additional leveling of the second layer is carried out with a knife plate. A two-layer formation up to 3 mm thick passes the 7 chamber, where it is subjected to air blasting. After geathing in the 7 chamber, the layer passes to the additional belt conveyor and passes under the 9 disk knives. Knives cut a layer into longitudinal strips 70 mm wide.

The cut strips go into the longitudinal gutters of a semicircular cross section of the 11 grooved conveyor. By design, it is a chain plate conveyor, the plates of which have channels of semicircular cross-section. When plates are closed with each other, continuous channels are formed - troughs in which the strata of the reservoir are laid, lining the entire surface of them.

The 10 piston filling mechanism fills the gutters with jelly syrup for loaves. The syrup is quickly aggravated by the flow of air into the 12 cabinet, cooled to a temperature of 8 — 10 ° C.

After gelling, the loaves go to the inclined 14 belt conveyor, which then transfers them to the / 5 belt conveyor, which is pre-sprinkled with sugar-sand. When switching to this conveyor, the loaves are also sprinkled with sugar. The sugar dispenser has two 18 vibrating sieves, an 16 elevator for returning excess sand and an 17 dispenser.

From the 15 conveyor, sprinkled loaves are transferred to the 19 conveyor belt for holding. The air in the 20 box is cold. After vystoyka loaves transferring conveyor 21 served under the guillotine knife 22 cutting machine. Cut slices sprinkled with sugar from the dispenser 23 and removed from the machine conveyor 24.

The 1 crust conveyor belt and the 11 grooved lamellar conveyor on the back branches have cleaning scrapers and 8 and 13 washing devices. To eliminate sticking of the mass to the 1 conveyor belt, it is lubricated with an invert syrup using an 2 spreading roller. The filling funnels are heated and equipped with agitators.

The unit is part of the A2-ShLD mechanized production line for the production of lemon and orange slices, developed by UkrNIIprodmash. The capacity of the line is 150 kg / h; electric motor power - 30 kW; Overall dimensions (in mm): 16660XXNNXXX5000; weight 3600 10 kg.
