LC-26 CONTINUOUS "MICROFILM" COOKERCONTINUOUS CANDY MOULDER COOKER VACUUM TYPE
The continuous microfilm sugar cooker cooking in film from in a matter of A few sections by spreading The syrup in a very thin film on the inner surfaces of a vertical steam heated cooking tube by means of high speed rotor blades The basic unit, mounted on a common baseplate, complete with its own control panel, comprises the following: Syrup reservoir tank Discharge pump Syrup pump Discharge pipeMicrofilm cooker Vacuum pump and condenserOptional extra equipment comprises a selection of flavor and color incorporating equipment , Pre-heater or first stage cooker unit.The pre-dissolved syrup is pumped from the syrup holding tank by a continuous syrup pump into the Top of the ¡°Microfilm¡± cooker where it is cooked continuously as it passes in film from Down the tube to the discharge arrangement, The moisture which is evaporated from syrup, is remove From the cooker through a pipe connected to the condenser of the vacuum pump.At the base of the Cooking chamber provision is made for the injection of buffered acid colors and certain flavors, Below this a special outlet is fitted with sight glasses through which the steam of sugar can be observed. A discharge pump extracts the cooked sugar continuously. The sugar is discharged continuously into a Turbo mixing cone or hopper, according to the installation.
Of stainless steel construction, the syrup tank is mounted at the back of the main column, where it is freely accessible.
self-contained variable stroke piston type pump, motor driven through a reduction gear, is provided To draw the syrup direct from the tank from where it is pumped in a metered flow to the syrup inlet at The top of the cooking rotor.
The cooking chamber consists of a vertical inner cooking tube surrounded by a steam Jacket , capable Of operating on a steam pressure of up to 13.6 Atmospheres (200 lbs per sq. inch) The rotor unit is lagged and encased in a stainless steel cover. Inside the inner tube a high speed revolving shaft carries A series of high speed centrifugally loaded spreader blades which wipe the syrup in a very thin film on The inner surface of the cooking tube. Due to the rapid movement of the syrup film over the cooking Surface. A very great intensity of heat exchange between the cooking tube and the syrup is obtained; thus Giving a high output of cooked sugar from a very compact unit. At the base of the rotor, the cooked Sugar falls into a stainless steel collecting chamber, fitted with sight glasses, which is connected to the discharge pump.
The discharge pump have been specially designed for removing high boiled sugar continuously from The collecting chamber and is dependently motor driven through a variable speed drive.The outlet of the discharge pump is fitted with a discharge pipe through which the cooked sugar Is delivered at a convenient height.
Vacuum pump and condenser
The water sealed vacuum pump is connected via the condenser to the top of the Microfilm cooking Chamber. It is fitted with on air bleed regulating valve to set the required degree of vacuum. The pump is independently driven and an automatic valve ensures that water is fed to the pump Immediately it is start up.
