1 Used Baker Perkins Servoform 'Candymoulder' Depositor with Moulds
Machine No.: 157/026
Contract No.: MA84077
Ref. No.: 13815
Production Rate: 750 Pieces/Min
The 'Candymoulder' with flexible moulds is a continuous depositor for low boiled sweets including toffees, caramels, fudge, fondant creams and certain quick setting jellies.
The depositing system offers several significant advantages. For toffee production, it can be used for the manufacture of the highest quality toffees and caramels with large proportions of fat and milk. For fondant and jelly production, it does way with starch, making it a clear, hygienic, space-saving rational method of manufacture. With starch production it can often be up to 24 hours before centres are available for enrobing, however with this machine, centres can be ready for packaging within one hour of starting the production line.
The Candymoulder has a moving depositing head with one or two depositing hoppers, dependent upon plant type, a covered insulated mould circuit with a refrigeration evaporation coil, an air circulating fan, a full set of moulds and an automatic ejection device onto a discharge conveyor. It is continuous and fully automatic in operation.
The base of the hopper, in which the pumps are housed, is electrically heated. A temperature indicator/controller controls both the heated base and side jackets of the hopper, each of which have independent variable heat input controls. The controls are duplicated for the two hoppers used on the centre filling plant.
The hopper is fitted with stainless steel pistons which work in copper cylinders and are designed to give a measured deposit to each individual mould. The weight of the deposit is easily changed by a single handwheel with an engraved scale.
The depositor is driven by a variable speed drive which allows the number of depositing strokes to be varied. The depositor pumps can be in a single or double row according to the outputs required.
