The Sandvik SGL Triple-Layer Plastic Belt Cooler is an industry first, a multi-layer chocolate chips/drops moulding line delivering three times the capacity of other systems of the same length. This is achieved by ‘stacking’ three depositors, one above the other, with each feeding a separate cooling / solidification line within one overall unit.
Combining three production lines in a single unit delivers a forming capacity of between 4-6 tonnes per hour – depending on chip size. It also allows the production of different recipes or product shapes/sizes at the same time.
This ultra-efficient design – overall length is just 40 m – enables producers to dramatically increase productivity without having to invest in infrastructure.
Maximum productivity and product quality is assured by the use of Rotary Depositor Modules on each line. Suitable for the production of chips from 30,000-300 pcs/kg, the Sandvik SGL RDM module delivers a consistently sized product at throughput rates of up to 2000 kg/hour. The outer depositor shell can be removed and replaced to enable production of chips of a different size, with changeover in less than 30 minutes.
The cooling tunnel itself delivers controlled cooling and solidification of the chocolate chips for a consistent, high quality end product in a form ideal for easy handling, bagging, dosing, mixing and remelting.
