Melting container with steam-filled double shell
This container is used to melt food fats which can then be further processed after they have been tipped into dosing buckets.
For melting and automatic distribution of large volumes of high-viscosity materials from drums or other transfer packagings we have developed the combination of melting out (heating jacket or warming oven), heated buffer volume and transport heating unit (vessel or heated pipework).
The opened, full containers standing on their end are quickly melted at the edge using warm circulating air or heating jackets so that the contents can slide into the receptacle located underneath. Melting grids can be used to accelerate the process.
In the heated buffer receptacle the material is liquefied completely and can then be fed to the process using either transfer vessels or pumps and pipework.
These melting units can be automated for the most part and are used by many of our renowned clients. We can also offer complete solutions including handling equipment for opening and tilting the drums or transfer vessels.
