Gravy can be produced in batches. Water is added to a tank and heated with steam and circulated with a pump. The pre-weighed dry materials are manually added and mixed in the water. When the gravy mix is ready for use it is pumped into a buffer tank. In the buffer tank a pump is circulating the gravy mix continuously. The gravy is pumped into the chunks & gravy mixing unit as a percentage of the chunk flow.
The chunks, produced by the steam tunnel system, and the gravy produced by the gravy installation, have to be mixed into a specific mixture. This can be done either by a one shot fill or a two shot fill system.
One shot gravy fill systems
- In a one shot fill system the gravy and chunks are mixed in a vessel before filling. The filling can be done in trays, cans or pouches.
Two shot gravy fill systems
- In a two shot fill system the dosing of the chunks and gravy is separated. The chunks are dosed mainly by a multihead weigher and the gravy by a volumetric dosing system. The filling can be done in trays, cans or pouches.
Selo designs and builds process- and packagingsystems for the food manufacturing, animalfeed, pharmaceutical and non-foodindustries. We offer solutions from A to Z: this makes it possible for us to take care of our projects from the design phase until the installation of the systems.
During this process we uphold the disciplines technology, automation, engineering, assembly, installation and after-sales ourselves.
