In many beverage facilities the need for standardized sugar syrup is very important to the overall process. GEA Liquid Processing has multiple offerings for taking sugar in a granular form and creating stabilized sugar syrup with a concentration of between 60-67 Brix. Both continuous and batch processes are commonly utilized, and GEA offers solutions for both manners of productions.

The batch process begins with the entering of the total amount of granular sugar delivered into the control unit. Once this is completed the control unit calculates the total amount of water required. The granular sugar is fed to the dissolving tank (capacity determined by granular sugar quantity) by pneumatic or mechanical conveyor. The dissolving tank is fed with the proper quantity of tempered water to dissolve the granulated sugar. A partial volume of the required hot water is already in the dissolving tank prior to the introduction of the granular sugar. Once the agitation in dissolving tank dissolves the granulated sugar the dissolution procedure has finished and the sugar syrup is filtered and pasteurized then fed to a buffer tank. In order to remove any sugar residues the dome of the dissolving tank is sprayed with retained dissolving water.

Special features:

  • Low investment costs
  • Low wear, i.e. low maintenance required
  • The system can be cleaned

Either a Hot or Cold dissolving procedure can be undertaken in a continuous sugar dissolving procedure. Both processes require a granular sugar silo and corresponding tank capacity for the sugar syrup. Granular sugar and dissolving water are fed to the dissolving tank at proper ratio while a circulating pump insures a homogenous suspension. A partial flow is supplied to the buffer tank, either via a gap filter (cold dissolving) or a pasteurizer (hot dissolving) with integrated filtration and deaeration.

Special features:

  • High capacity up to 20.000 l/h at 60 Bx max.
  • Fully automatic process flow
  • Logging of Brix value
  • Low wear, i.e. low maintenance required
  • The system can be cleaned
