Semi Finished Products - Margarine Process description of margarine

Margarine is an emulsion of water (14-35%) in oil (86-65%) with additional ingredients such as milk, salt, emulsifier. Solid fats must be melted prior to metering. 
The water phase (water, powder milk, other ingredients) is prepared in the dissolver, the oil phase is separately prepared in the emulsion mix tank, the concentrated emulsifier solution, in the emulsion make-up tank. Water phase and emulsifier solutions are bached in the emulsion mix tank. Liquid ingredients are METEREDd with flow meters, the solid ones are weighed, The emulsion is then transferred into an emulsion feed tank. 
The entire emulsion is pasteurized using a plate heat exchanger, including heating and cooling sections. 
high pressure pump feeds the pasteurized emulsion to plasticizers (Scraped Surface Heat Exchangers) where the cooled emulsion is crystallized and plasticized, then processed in a pin worker for tub filling. 
tube heat exchanger continuously remelts filler overfeed and returns it to the emulsion feed tank.
The remelt system is designed to handle the entire production rate during shutdown of the packing machine.
The plant can be designed and exactly taylared for any unique technologie and requirement of the client.
