The Latini continuous caramel station is designed for continuous production from batch cookers. The production can be sequenced in such a way that the process becomes continuous and there is no need to wait for one batch to prepare.
After the caramel is cooked, it is then transferred to a holding tank which is hot water-jacketed for further caramelization and is stirred continuously for a creamier and required color texture.
The full process is controlled through a 15" HMI screen and a P&ID starting the process from raw material added to the cooling of the caramel on a Hohberger Cooling wheel. The HMI screen shows all the parameters starting from temperature, steam, and time to monitor the process. The system is also equipped with a CIP system which with the press of a button can start the automatic process of cleaning the cookers, holding tank, pump, and cooling wheel.
The system is also equipped with a high-capacity pump to transfer the caramel from the holding tank to the cooling wheel.
