Technology that gets more out of sugar
Zeppelin’s processing concepts cover all sugar processing forms and offer tailor-made solutions from storage and conveying, sugar grinding and recrystallization through to the charging of big bags.
Powdered sugar is obtained in many industrial operations by grinding granulated sugar. The formation of lumps is a well-known problem here that makes further processing difficult. Lumps in the confectionery industry, for example, interfere with the production of glazes and fillings. Small quantities of starch or other products are often added to the sugar to prevent these lumps.
We have developed a process that allows the production of pure, lump-free sugar without the addition of unwanted additives.
Our recrystallization process is solely based on air that is conditioned by temperature and humidity and together with the optimized movement of the agitator, we prevent the solid bridges in sugar that lead to the formation of lumps. The pure sugar with no additives that is treated in this way can also be stored in large silo units, discharged and processed without any lumps.
