Experts in Chem-Feed and Water Treatment System Engineered By: Pumping Solutions, Inc Sales Rep: Steve Shapiro ACME Confection Application
Experts in Chem-Feed and Water Treatment Synopsis Current Application Manufacturing large batches of gelatin-like candy Single color Single flavor New Application Manufacture large batches of gelatin-like candy Multi color (5 colors) Multi flavor (5 flavors)
Experts in Chem-Feed and Water Treatment Opportunity / Problem Opportunity: Manufacture large batches of multi-colored and flavored gelatin like candy with new extruding technology. Problem: Color and flavor must be injected at the point of extrusion to make a multi-strand “ribbon” of candy where each strand is a different color and flavor. At the point of extrusion, pressures are ~1200 – 1400psi and the flavor & color are to be metered proportionally to the dough which is varying by the speed of production run.
Experts in Chem-Feed and Water Treatment Solution = Prominent Solution: Design a multiple Sigma HK pump skid that is integrated with Emerson mass flow meters and Prominent D2C controllers. The D2C controllers will take the 4-20ma signal from the Emerson mass flow meters and create a PID loop to control the speed and flow of the flavors / colors based on production speed.
Experts in Chem-Feed and Water Treatment Additional System Benefits The new system allowed the candy manufacturer to make a “base” dough and they could change color / flavor combinations on the fly, where they used to have to run until the batch was gone, stop, clean the equipment, make a new batch, and then begin production again. Old changeover time was 3-6 hours New changeover time is NOW 6-10 minutes
