Preparing the mix
Ingredients such as fresh or powdered milk, water, vegetable or animal fats, sugar, stabilisers and emulsifiers are introduced into the first mixing tank. Water required to prepare the mix is sent to the selected tank according to the quantity set on the volume meter.
The heating system supplies hot water, which, through the circulation pump, is sent to the water jacket of the selected mixing tank in order to heat the mix up to 55°C. On reaching the temperature, the mix is transferred to the balance tank by means of the centrifugal pump.
From this balance tank, a second feeding pump transfers the mix to the heat exchanger in the heat recovery section. The unpasteurised mix is heated here to 76°C via the heat exchanger by the transfer of heat of the already pasteurised mix, which is being cooled through the same process via counter flow through the heat exchanger
Once the pre-set heating temperature has been reached, the mix is sent to the homogeniser via a centrifugal pump, which, given its high pressure of 200 bar, reduces the fat globules into tiny particles to prevent fat separation and to obtain an excellent structure of ice cream.
