Use of a self-cleaning filter system by Contec© in the production of chocolate
In the field of new development again, a successful example of application in the production of chocolate can be documented.
The filtration challenge:
The chocolate manufacturer Ludwig Weinrich GmbH & Co. KG, Germany wanted to replace the previously used sieve filters (last step before molding) through a self-cleaning filter system as police filter before filling the chocolate.
Viscosity: 1.5 PaS - 7.5 PaS
Throughput: about 1.5 t/h
Pressure max.: 6 bar, max. temperature: 40 °C
Fineness: 1.5 - 2 mm in order to prevent separation of the chocolate
After a very successful trial with an wedge wire filter type AS110K standard of Contec this was modified for special use as follows:
The company Weinrich GmbH & Co. KG has installed differential pressure monitoring line and found out that the pressure loss is only 0.1 to 0.2 bar.
