The Premix machinery or named Mixer has been developed for the deaeration, blending and saturation of beverages and,
depending on its execution, can work from a minimum of two components (water and syrup) to
a maximum of eight ingredients, so including two dosages of flavor. (depending on the make and model).
The machine is available in different sizes with yields of 15, 30, 45, 60 and 90 m3 / h, so
The nominal efficiency of this premix machine in continuous operation is between 33% and 100%, while its maximum efficiency corresponds to 110% of the nominal efficiency.
What these unit work for:
The dosage of liquid and gaseous ingredients is based on the register regulation system and
High pressure carbonation guarantees an optimal solution of CO2 in the product so
The Premix is therefore particularly suitable for the production of soft drinks with a very wide output range so
Advantages of the premix system described:
High dosing accuracy with continuous production saves media and product so No additional CO2 consumption on the mixer both
during continuous production (33-100%) and
these have to use a quick product change of the used and new mixer with water rinse so
in less than 10 minutes (depending on equipment, communication and layout of syrup room, mixer and filler)
Intensive homogenization of the mixture thanks to two axial dynamic mixing segments plus
one recipe memory for perfect reproducibility of product quality over time.
KRONES EVOGUARD, for example, is a series of high-efficiency valves, of in-house production and
this offers concrete advantages in daily operation.
Basic machinery as Customer-specific extensions:
Detailed descritpiton of this unit is provided as:
Aroma dosage, regulated with Sampling valves of the mixer and
Automatic control of the CIP system valves via bus system plus
CO2 measurement, Maselli and Maselli measurement of the Brix value, product output and
Maselli data collection software annex to the premix with
Double deaeration with vacuum and pressure with stripping gas plus
Vacuum pump in anti-corrosion (anti-rust) stainless steel / chrome-nickel steel (similar to AISI 304) plus
Pressure-intensifying pump with pressure regulation and
Different pressurizing of gas and change of pressurizing gas after the start of production of the mixer with
Exchange of signals for water supply and Exchange of signals for the refrigerant supply of the premix with the
Pressure monitoring on the water inlet of the mixer added to a Plate heat exchanger, so
KRONES execution base in anti-corrosion (anti-rust) stainless steel and chrome-nickel steel (similar to AISI 304)
The refrigerant monitoring for premix function as follow:
A means of ascent to access the electrical components installed in the premix at a height of over 2.2 meters so
No limitations regarding pulp and fiber size and
the Heat exchanger for the cooling water (upstream of the syrup dosing point) for the fiber content of the product.
