Sugarplex SX

  • Versatile size-reduction system with pin discs
  • Generously dimensioned mill door for easy cleaning

This extremely compact system requires neither the additional filter, fan nor air cooling units that are commonly needed with conventional system designs for sugar milling. That means that the plant operator benefits from lower investment costs, reduced space requirement and lower cleaning and maintenance costs. The cylindrical mill design includes an 800-mm-diameter container with a conical product discharge, and the mill can be excellently integrated into an existing system.

The coarse sugar is fed via a rotary valve through the mill door directly into the centre of the grinding unit. The grinding unit consists of 2 pin discs and is completely integrated into the mill door. The door can be opened quickly and easily and can be swung wide open so that the user can inspect or clean the milling tools at any time with no problem. The Sugarplex 315 SX achieves throughputs of 3 t/h at a fineness of 99% < 450 µm or 1.5 t/h at a fineness of 99% < 150 µm.

The mill is driven by an 18.5-kW three-phase motor that is suitable for ATEX zone 22. The inner pin disc sits directly on the motor shaft and rotates at speeds of up to 145 m/sec. A special seal prevents oil from penetrating the product area on the one hand, and sugar or washing water ingressing the motor on the other hand. The motor speed is steplessly adjustable and the desired fineness can be set using a frequency converter.

The Sugarplex has been specially tailored to the needs of the sugar industry. It was developed exclusively for the food industry.

Shelf-stable icing sugar with one single system

  • Complete recrystallisation inside the mill saves space and reduces the number of process steps
  • Shelf-stable icing sugar without the need for additives
  • Top quality in the storage and production of confectionary
  • Flexible and reliable process as the result of continuous operation

The granulated sugar is charged by means of a rotary valve through the mill door direct into the centre of the grinding unit. The grinding unit comprises two pin discs and is completely integrated into the mill door.

The mill door can be opened quickly and easily. Thus you are in a position to inspect and clean the grinding elements at any time without problem. The motor speed is steplessly regulated and the required fineness value set by means of a frequency converter.

The targeted regulation of the atmosphere inside the mill serves to shorten the recrystallisation time. Amorphous icing sugar is able to crystallise in the mill before it is discharged via a rotary valve.

  • Perfect residence time: The residence time of the sugar in the mill can be adjusted perfectly by means of design and process-technological modifications in order to achieve a complete recrystallisation and thus to produce shelf-stable sugar.
  • Ideal balance: The integrated agitator in the grinding chamber allows an ideal balance between the set moisture level and the freshly ground icing sugar. The formation of undesirable agglomerates is thus prevented.
  • Precisely regulated: The atmosphere necessary for the recrystallisation is controlled and adjusted precisely to suit the entire process by a conditioning unit.
  • Optimum temperature: The use of heating sleeves serves to accelerate the start-up process and to prevent condensation on the contact surfaces in question. We guarantee a reliable and efficient process with your system.
