Tetra Albrix is a process module for continuous dissolving and pasteurisation of granulated sugar with a concentration of 60 - 65 Brix. Simple syrup is an essential part of the production of a variety of products such as still drinks, confectionery, jam and carbonated soft drinks.​

 

Features

Cross-flow filter

Minimizes energy consumption

By allowing you to control the size of the sugar crystals, the cross-flow filter helps keep dissolving time and temperatures down to a minimum – thus saving energy. Smaller crystals can pass through the cross filter and are fully dissolved. If they are not destined for pasteurization, the cross-flow filter inserts can be adjusted down to the point where the largest sugar crystals that can pass through it are under 50 microns (i.e. they dissolve instantly).
Advanced °Brix set point control

Maintains a constant °Brix level; saves energy

Combining accurate density measurements with rapid flow metering, our Advanced °Brix set point control keeps dosing under constant control. Rather than overdosing and diluting at a later stage, it maintains the optimal temperature for the exact amount of sugar you need to dissolve – and thereby saves energy. Since the process is continuous and eliminates the need for manual sampling, it also saves operator time.
Decolourization system

Refines sugar; improves quality

The decolourization system removes colour from the sugar solution. If the sugar’s ICUMSA value is over 35 (and under 400) a good way to decolourize it is active carbon treatment. This involves holding the sugar solution at 85 degrees and transferring it from the pasteurizer to a reaction tank, where active carbon is added. The sugar then needs to be filtered, pasteurized and cooled.

Automatic filling in destination tank

Ease of use

Automatic filling makes the Tetra Albrix very easy to operate. When the sugar solution is at the right °Brix, the flow is automatically diverted to the destination tank. When the destination tank is full, the Tetra Albrix stops. As the sugar solution is pumped away for use in production, the level drops and an operator can start up the Tetra Albrix again. Alternatively, it can be controlled automatically.
