Fruit Flavoured Drinks
A bespoke mixing solution to reduce waste, guarantee infallible hygiene and increase production speeds
To incorporate artificial sweeteners such as Aspartame, Acesulfame K and Saccha, thickening agents such as CMC, and stabilising ingredients such as gums, starches and alginates. Many of these do not dissolve easily, and can leave floating residue on the surface of the liquid even after mixing.
Our fruit drinks manufacturing customer also needed to guarantee the level of hygiene of their equipment, to pass an essential industry quality inspection.
The Pharma Hygiene Products Technical Team worked with our customer to create a custom solution, with a powerful mixer to improve both the quality and consistency of their mix. The result was an almost total elimination of ingredient residue, and a much higher batch yield from their ingredients.
Constructed from 316L stainless steel, the mixing vessel was accompanied by X-Ray certification to guarantee the quality of the material, Surface Finish Analysis certification to prove surface smoothness (an exceptional 0.4 micrometers Ra, which leaves nowhere for bacteria to collect ands store), as well as TSE certification to show that no animal fats were used in the polishing process. This is vital to guarantee that no cross-contamination from BSE or CJD diseases occurs.
