Forming

01

Forming Rollers

Forming rollers form a sheet of food product—whether it is muesli/granola, cereal, protein, rice-crispie, caramel or confectionery.

The units large-diameter stainless steel rollers can be heated or cooled, and there are individual variable-speed and temperature controls as the product requires.

 Units can have manual or optional servo adjustment on slab thickness.

Automatic weigh-scale feature: If the servo model is chosen, the slab weight can be controlled by PTL down-line weigh scales, with automatic feedback to the former

Adjustable width hoppers can be supplied.

02

Sprinklers

Sprinklers apply coatings of nuts, chocolate chips or similar free-flowing products onto the product slabs, using simple-to-control feeding devices.

PTL can supply a belt-type sprinkler or cavity-roller-type sprinkler depending on the application and inclusions.

The cantilevered design enables the unit to be moved to different sections of the forming area to provide flexibility.

03

Pickers

The picker is mounted after the feeder sprinkler on top of the forming table.

It is used to mix dry ingredients (chocolate chips) that have been sprinkled on top of the slab into the slab using pins with gaps.

This is effective when chocolate chips can’t be part of the initial mix, as they would melt.

04

Sizing Rollers

Sizing rollers set the height and compaction of the product after forming.

 The units have manual or optional servo height adjustments.

 They are available in stainless steel and HDPE depending on application and preference.

In addition to smooth rollers, various profile shapes can be achieved.

Manual or optional servo height adjustments.

Layering Rollers

Layering rollers apply layers of caramel, fruit paste or similar product onto  product slabs in a controlled manner.

They are designed to produce layers in either direction, i.e. roller side up or down.

The rollers enable high-accuracy adjustments on sheet thickness.

They can be easily mounted over existing lines. The cooling drum has inlet and outlet for temperature-controlled cooling glycol.

06

Sandwich Systems

They are suspended over the forming bed prior to the slab cooling tunnel.

Consists of the following items: former, wedge bed and two sizing rollers.

Forming roller forms a sheet of food product—whether it is muesli/granola, cereal, protein, rice-crispie, caramel or confectionery.

The units’ large-diameter stainless steel rollers can be heated or cooled, and there are individual variable-speed and temperature controls as the product requires.

Units can have manual or optional servo adjustment on slab thickness.

The slab is formed on the wedge bed. Two sizing rollers with side guides size/gauge the slab to the specified width and thickness.

As the slab reaches the out-feed end of the wedge bed, it is automatically placed on to the top of the preformed slab. The preformed slab may have a topping applied prior to the sandwich system, for example, caramel, with nuts, chips and chocolate chips, or as required.

Once formed, this results in a complex slab that can have numerous flavours and textures.
