The consistency of the product shortening is also very different if it is produced to be packed or filled. It is obvious that a packed product must obtain a firmer texture than a filled product and if this texture is not optimal the product will be diverted to the remelting system, melted and added to the buffer tank for re-processing. And product can be recycled manually from packaging section.
The Continuous Remelt used for melting the crystallized product uses a Plate Heat Exchanger. The PHE Plates shall be of Stainless Steel AISI 316L, and frame of Mild Steel, cladded with Stainless Steel plates suspended on two stainless steel shafts and are edge clamped with bolts. The PHE is made up of 1 section for re-melting of product using hot water. 95°C Hot water generated for the Hot Water unit shall be used for maintaining the temperature in the water section of the Continuous Remelt.
The consistency of the product must obtain a firmer texture when it is filled and if this texture is not optimal the product will be diverted to the remelting system, melted and added to the buffer tank for re-processing. The Circular Remelt Tank is preferred over the Rectangular remelt Tank for margarines as the Circular Remelt Tank is provided with an agitator to keep the emulsion intact before it is transferred back to the Buffer Tank.
