Automated Ingredient Weighing & Dosing

When starting from scratch ingredients, the ingredients are added to the pre-mixer either manually or automatically A combined system is also a realistic alternative: fully automated for majors like sugar, flour, glucose, oil etc. and manual feeding for the minors like coloring, flavoring or emulsifiers.

Automated Ingredient Weighing & Dosing System

Automated ingredient feeding is more accurate, requires less labor, and reduces the chance of foreign materials being added to the product. There are two (2) systems available: one uses load cells on the pre-mixer, turning it into an automated weighing platform; the second system weighs the ingredients in a separate hopper and then transfers the ingredients into the pre-mixer on a signal. TFT supplies dosing systems, pre mixers on load cells, conveyor screws for various products and of course the related software – and communication portals with related systems.

Benefits

Labor reduction

Minimizes human error

Reduced risk of foreign bodies in product

Easy to link to a ERP-software environment

Pre Mixing Ingredients

Nearly every production process starts with mixing ingredients. TFT offers you two basic pre-mixing principles. The RotoBatter is preferred for recipes without solid fat. The RotoCutter is the best choice when using for example fat blocks.

TFT-RotoBatter Batch/Pre Mixing System

The TFT-RotoBatter can be used as a batch mixer or pre mixer,  designed to mix dry and liquid ingredients into a homogeneous mass or batter. Equipped with two (top driven) agitators, for both mixing and scraping, the RotoBatter guarantees not only a perfect mix, but also an optimal discharge. The bottom mounted transfer pump is used for empting the mixer, including upstream and/or long distances. CIP, ingredient feeding, and controls can be included in the system as well.

Features

Dedicated design for batter mixing

CIP-able design

Prepared to be connected and communicate with (third party) dosing systems

Can be executed with load cell weighing system

Benefits

Minimal aeration in the batch mixer to improve density control

TFT-RotoCutter Batch/Pre Mixing System

The TFT-RotoCutter can be used as a batch mixer or pre mixer,  designed to mix dry and liquid ingredients into a homogeneous mass or batter while blocking fat. Equipped with a high shear knife mixer and scraper, for both mixing and scraping, the RotoCutter guarantees not only a perfect mix, but also an optimal discharge. The bottom mounted transfer pump is used for emptying the mixer, including upstream and/or long distances. CIP, ingredient feeding, and controls can be included in the system as well.

TFT-Impellor Batch Mixing System

The TFT-Impellor mixer is a batch mixer designed to mix and hydrate dry ingredients with low viscosity liquids homogeneously (for example: gelatin and water). Equipped with a special design impellor type mixer, a lump-free mix is guaranteed. The tank is jacketed to keep your product at the required temperature. The mixer can be mounted on top of a holding tank and can be emptied by gravity or an optional bottom mounted transfer pump can empty the mixer (also upstream or over longer distance). CIP, ingredient feeding, and controls can be included in the system as well.

Features

CIP-able design

Prepared to be connected and communicate with (third party) dosing systems

Can be executed with load cell weighing system and mass flow measurements

Benefits

Special designed for lump free operation

Very high performance on gelatin/water solutions

Buffer Tanks

Buffer tanks/holding vessels are often underestimated but are of the utmost importance for an efficient operation of a process line. Single walled or jacketed, insulated or non insulated, with or without agitator, discharge for high or low viscosities, CIP-able or manual cleaning. All of these options must be considered and chosen carefully for an optimal tank selection for each unique system. With the correct options, a lot of problems that affect the life cycle of a process line can be avoided.

Buffer Tanks / Holding Vessels

The buffer tank is at the start of almost every continuous production process. It is crucial that the product temperature in the tank is constant and that temperature control is safeguarded. This is achieved by making sure that the temperature of the incoming product from the pre-mixer is kept constant. Furthermore the water temperature of the jackets of the insulated buffer tank are set to such a value that prevents the product from heated or cooled down. Like all other parts of TFT equipment, the buffer tank has an easy to clean, hygienic design and will be executed according to the requirements of your specific process.

Benefits

Allows for quick product change-overs, increasing efficiency

Consistency & reproducibility of the final product

Several products can be made simultaneously, increasing flexibility

Continuous Aeration

Continuous aeration is and has always been one of the core processing components within TFT’s range of equipment. Aeration increases product appeal to consumers: the continuous mixing of a gas into a liquid changes the density of the product, which influences mouth feel, flavor release and texture. There is no better way to improve your brand than to introduce aeration into your process. When choosing a TFT aerator you become part of our design – and process philosophy that is future oriented. To address ever more demanding consumers your process needs to be flexible, accurate, hygienic, energy efficient, CIP-able, user friendly, etc.

TFT-ROTOPILOT RP50 Continuous Aerator

The TFT-RotoPlus continuous aerator family starts with the TFT-RotoPilot RP50. A bench top unit designed for R&D and research environments but also suitable for small scale production.

TFT-RotoTemp: the Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger, has become a benchmark in the industrial bakery, dairy and confectionery industry. This state of the art design comes in a range that answers the need for complete control over your product temperature. The highest accuracy of temperature control is crucial to having full control over your production process and its output.

Cookers

Manufacturing base syrups for marshmallows, angel kisses, pectin jam/jelly, caramel or other products requires a cooking system. The goal of cooking is to reduce the water content in the syrup resulting in an increased percentage of solids (°Brix). For most syrups: water, glucose, sugar, and (in certain cases) a hydrocolloid are mixed. Steam is then used to heat the cooker and cook the syrup, thus partially evaporating the water. The level of evaporation depends on the type of product being made. For some syrups a batch-type cooker with a stirring system is needed; other syrups need a thermosyphon system that generates natural produced agitation.

Batch Cooker

For many types of products the production process starts with a cooking step. A batch cooker is the best choice for the production of pectin jelly, caramel, or toffee. The TFT Batch Cooker is heated by steam and cooking is performed using mechanical agitation. When the correct temperature is reached a vacuum is applied on the cooker to immediately reduce the temperature to approximately 80°C for further processing.

Features

Fully automated cooking

Full temperature control

Cooling down for further processing from 125°C to 80°C in seconds

Closed system

Benefits

Very accurate and reproducible cooking results

The Thermosyphon Cooker is the best choice for the production of marshmallow, angel kiss (Tarboosh) and other syrups. The TFT Thermosyphn Cooker is heated by steam coils and doesn’t need mechanical agitation because of the physical thermal properties of a heated liquid body. As soon as the required level of solids (°Bx) has been reached a vacuum is put on the cooker to immediately lower the temperature and the appropriate amount of moisture is evaporate.

Features

Fully automated cooking

Full temperature control

Cooling down for further processing in seconds

Closed system

No mechanical parts inside of the cooker

Inline Blending And Mixing Systems

In the entire food industry we recognize a trend to produce a neutral product (base or mother product without coloring or flavoring) and give the final product its own identity, as close to depositing point (production line) as possible. This method reduces waste and shortens change-over times. For in-line mixing TFT manufactures a wide range of equipment: from high accuracy pumping units up to inline mixers, both dynamic and static.

CFA-Injection / Dynamic Mixer

The TFT dynamic mixer is designed to mix color, flavor and many other liquid products into a primary liquid flow. In combination with flow measurement, your recipe can be made in-line in a continuous way. The dynamic mixer can be used in many temperature and shear sensitive bakery and confectionary applications.

Features

Fully CIP-able application

Easy change-overs between different recipes

Benefits

In-line mixing replaces batch mixing and reduces product loss and down time

A good solution for in-line mixing when viscosities vary

Great for temperature and sheer sensitive products

Inline Dry Ingredient Blending

Inclusions add interest to bakery – and confectionery products. Such as: rice crisps in chocolate, crushed nut pieces in caramel, or chocolate chips in cake batter. What these products have in common is that they are sensitive to temperature and/or shear changes. TFT developed the RotoBlender specifically to gently blend or fold the dry particles into the base product. Its unique design guarantees an even distribution of the inclusions while maintaining the structure and texture of your product. A loss-in-weight feeder can be added for dosing the inclusions proportionally.

TFT RotoBlender: Dry Ingredient Mixer

The TFT-RotoBlender is designed to blend-in dry ingredients or inclusions into an aerated or tempered mass. By gently folding the dry inclusions, they are blended into the liquid part, not damaging aeration or temper by shear or mechanical impact. In combination with flow measurement and loss-in-weight dosing technology (for the dry part) your recipe can be made in-line in a continuous way. Typical examples are fruit parts or chocolate chunks into a cake batter, peanuts into a nougat type bar filling or crispies into a marshmallow.

Features

Fully CIP-able design (unique for this type of equipment)

Can be fully integrated in TFT control software and tempering/mixing solutions

Benefits

The RotoBlender folds the inclusions gently into the liquid product with the minimal product damage

Many type of dry inclusions can be handled : from powders (flour, sugar) to broken nuts/chocolate chunks or even fruity parts (IQF)

High accurate recipe control by loss-in-weight technology

Static Mixer

The TFT static mixers are designed to mix a color or flavor homogeneously into an (aerated) mass. The static mixer can be in jacketed execution for temperature control. The static unit is a maintenance free and economical alternative for many bakery, dairy and confectionary products.

Benefits

More affordable investment comparing to dynamic mixers

Easy implementable in existing pipework

Extruders, Sheeters And Manifolds

After the marshmallow, batter, cream or caramel has been prepared in the TFT kitchen, an extrusion or depositing step is typical to make the final product. Marshmallow is usually extruded through a (rotating) manifold, cream can be manifold extruded onto, for example, a sandwich biscuit. For batter, a roller depositor or static depositor is applied to sheet a layer of batter directly onto the tunnel oven belt. For every application TFT is able to provide a specific solution.

Cleaning In Place (CIP)

Cleaning of your production line must be very thorough yet easy. Protection of your product safety is priority. Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) offers the solution. TFT provides two possibilities: either an integrated CIP-pump in the tempering/aeration system, or a single, central machine to auto-clean several process lines. We have taken great care of the design of all cleaning equipment. Materials and surface finish are up to FDA standards, guaranteeing no residue is left behind. The integrated CIP-pump in our systems creates a turbulence at high velocity in the pipe work and equipment. When you have a number of machines that need to be cleaned, a central, multi-functional CIP system is the best choice. Our CIP system prepares the cleaning liquid in advance and auto-cleans the various process lines.

Automated CIP System

If automated cleanability of the line is important to you, TFT can supply an individual CIP system together with the production equipment. The CIP system consists of several tanks filled with different types of water at different temperatures (rinsing, detergent, after rinsing). When the operator selects the CIP (stored in HMI as recipe) the complete production system is cleaned, fully automated without any human interference. An additional hot air drying system can be executed for extra fast drying of the line.

Features

Fully automated system

Rinsing water can be reused

Includes sensors to measure water quality, pH and can determine if the cleaned equipment is free of detergent

Benefits

CIP system can be used to validate your food safety or quality program

Stand alone equipment that can be used to clean multiple production lines

Easy Clean System

Our philosophy is that every food production system needs to be cleaned sooner or later. When the investment for the stand alone CIP system is not feasible most production equipment is executed with easy cleaning CIP on board. This system works more or less the same as the stand alone system except the tanks (pre mixer, buffer tank) are used as holding vessels for the water. High capacity/velocity CIP pumps generate a high flow of water through the piping to clean the system. The easy clean systems can be upgraded to the point where sensors are installed into the system as a safety for detergent residue.

Benefits

Fully automated system without operator interference

More affordable investment

Pneumatically operated valves are applied to direct the water to the supposed part of the system

RotoPilotPlant

Since continuous aeration technology is only one part of the TFT portfolio, the market demanded an even more flexible R&D platform. The new RotoPilotPlant needed to have the same heating, chilling and crystallizing capabilities as large-scale production lines. To make this possible, TFT started developing a laboratory scale scraped surface heat exchanger (SSHE).

With this addition to the existing RotoPilot, the R&D machine has become even more versatile.

One of the biggest benefits of the additional SSHE is its capability of continuous crystallizing and aerating of all types of cream type fillings for sandwich biscuits, wafers and many other products. The capability to cool a cream, sugar syrup or aerated foam in-line for marshmallow production is a major benefit. This was the starting point for TFT to develop a versatile R&D platform combining aerator, scraped surface heat exchanger, water tempering and color/flavor (or acid) injection.

Benefits

All process steps in one system

Versatile easy and reliable

Minimal product waste

Fast results
