CAMEC shredders enter the food sector!
CAMEC’s constant commitment to extending the application sectors of its shredders has opened up new opportunities in recent months and a new range of industrial shredders for the food sector was born from the request of an important group in the Beverage sector.
Lemon, orange or other fruit or vegetable juice, used to obtain natural-based drinks, are prepared in large quantities and, to preserve the aroma, immediately after squeezing, they are frozen in large blocks of ice.
Subsequently, in order to be used in the syrup rooms of the beverage company, they need to be reduced to grit. The volumetric reduction of the blocks must take place in a very short time, in a sterile environment and at a controlled temperature. Furthermore, the grit obtained from shredding must necessarily maintain the solid state for a certain period of time.
CAMEC system has been expressly designed to continuously grind the ice blocks, and, by means of a controlled temperature chamber, it allows to maintain the solid state of the ice shot for the time necessary for its transfer to the mixing point of the juice itself.
With pride and satisfaction, after months of testing and use, we close the project with a positive outcome.
Our thanks to the well-known Beverage group who have trusted CAMEC in creating the system, and to the expert bottling technicians who have transferred their precious experience to us, essential for introducing our machinery in the food sector where very restrictive hygiene rules and traceability of the treated product are in force.
