Overcome powder mixing challenges with Alfa Laval’s Hybrid Powder Mixer
Looking to eliminate lumping when dispersing and dissolving powdered pectin? Try the Alfa Laval Hybrid Powder Mixer (HPM) before you invest in a new powder mixer. Test results show you can cut mixing time by up to 30% while increasing yield and product quality.
No more guessing games
Conduct a trial using the Alfa Laval HPM either on site at your manufacturing facility or at the Alfa Laval Fluid Handling Application & Innovative Center in Kolding, Denmark.
No more lumping
With the HPM, pectin dispersion and dissolution are straightforward. The HPM is the only hygienic mixer capable of aspirating powder while simultaneously pumping viscous solutions at pressures of 4 bar or more - without requiring an additional pump. A recent HPM trial for a European food processor eliminated lumping issues while preparing concentrated pectin solutions used for fruit preparation recipes.
30% faster mixing time, reduced costs
“The HPM cuts process time by 30%, increasing quality and yield” says Frédéric Liot, Business Development Food, Industry Management, Alfa Laval. He adds: "This powder mixer delivers fully hydrated pectin solutions at concentrations of 8% or higher. Free of lumps and immediately available for further processing, it produces a longer lasting pectin solution, which increases yield and cuts overall pectin costs".
