FORMA equipment is designed to carry out standard batch productions in continuous or discontinuous mode. On the 2GL version the crusher is mounted on the malaxer with separate discharge into the vats 1 or 2; on the 3GL and 4GL versions the crusher is separated. The handling of oxygen at the crusher inlet is a very important factor allowing the formation of lipoxygenase, thus of flavours; also important for the final product quality is the thermic delta between the paste temperature when entering and when coming out of the crusher.
The malaxation is made inside closed malaxers in order to avoid paste oxidation and to ensure an effective temperature control. The paste inlet is operated on the 2GL version through an auger and on the 3GL and 4GL models by means of a pump operated by an electric valve and the outlet is made through a PSS elliptical piston pump put on each single malaxer. Cleaning is facilitated through the total opening of the higher cover, so that there are no areas for possible process wastes.
The horizontal decanter separating liquid from solid is designed in such a way as to obtain the maximum yield with the highest quality; the 2.0 auger is designed to get a cleanest possible product without adding any water; there is no temperature increase during extraction. In conclusion
we can state that the FORMA equipment allows extraction of a great product, of course with all the support that can be granted by our company during all phases of production: that makes the difference
