High Shear Mixer solutions for Sugar
Sugar is a common ingredient in almost everything America consumes. This seemingly benign powder can often be a challenge for manufacturers to dissolve. The traditional process requires heat and long agitation times to accomplish. IKA® Works has solutions that address both of these issues.
ADVANTAGES OF IKA® WORKS MIXERS FOR DISSOLVING SUGAR
- Lower process temperatures. Sugar is traditionally processed at 180oF or higher to increase solubility. However, the intense energy and shear imparted by an IKA® Works Mixer allows customers to solubilize sugar at lower temperatures.
- Decreased process time. Traditional methods require a long agitation time coupled with the high temperature noted above to achieve solubilization. IKA® Works Mixers can simultaneously reduce the temperature and process time required. Complete solubilization can often be achieved in a single pass through one of our high shear devices. We even offer systems to add and dissolve the sugar inline, eliminating the batch tank.
