The range of Tetra Pak® High Shear Mixers B200-500VAA, B300-1500VAA and B400-2500VAA for beans and vegetable spreads is the best solution for mixing products in this category.
It allows you to produce a mix of any desired quality, whether it needs to be coarse, smooth or whether particles such as pieces of vegetables or herbs have to be blended in. The features are specially designed to handle chickpeas as well as beans and other vegetables efficiently and with ease.
Most mixers for making hummus are simply mixers. However, the new mixer option from Tetra Pak designed for hummus producers is much more.
Our prediction tool enables the replication and/or enhancement of any cold emulsion products. With an existing recipe as the starting point, it measures the size and distribution of droplets and generates the exact process parameters required to replicate it i.e. mixing time, speed and shear force. Just bring your sample to our Product Development Centre and we’ll tell (and/or show) you how to make it on our high shear mixer.
Our patented technology allows high and low shear mixing in the same process. It gives you complete control over the speed, time and degree of shear force of your mixing. This means you can fine-tune the size and distribution of droplets in your product, and hence achieve the exact viscosity, mouthfeel and texture you want.
In this unit, a double-shaft agitator circulates product around the tank. Its counter rotating blades reach every corner of the tank, ensuring that all product passes evenly through the Dynamic HS mixing head, resulting in a homogenous end product regardless of viscosity.
Ingredients are rapidly drawn into the mixing vessel by an independently controlled vacuum pump. This enables faster, more complete deaeration of the product and allows full control of the vacuum level inside the mixer.
The bin lifter system is capable of lifting bins of 200 litres or 300 litres with the press of a button. The contents of the bin can be emptied automatically into the mixing tank through a large manway at the top. This provides a sanitary and ergonomic way to add ingredients such as beans, chickpeas and other vegetables.
By choosing a pressure vessel for the mixing tank, customers have the option of cooking under pressure at 3 bars giving temperatures of up to 135°C. Apart from giving an even shorter cooking time, this form of cooking can give other benefits such as preserving colour and taste.
If you want to heat up the contents of the mixer fast, there is the option of direct steam injection. We have developed our own design of nozzles to ensure a long working life. A sanitary steam system is used to ensure food safety.
