For the production of mixed beverages a syrup can be prepared as a primary product. Syrup is made essentially of liquid sugar and the flavour. A high quality syrup production should also ensure that the oxygen content of the liquid sugar is reduced. A carbonation of the syrup provides finer resolution of the CO2 in the finished beverage.

|Components of the syrup room|
The mixing tanks are equipped with rotary mixers. With the mixers a perfectly homogeneous mixing result is ensured in a very short time. The addition of gas is also made via the rotary mixers. In the CIP cleaning the rotary mixers act as cleaning heads and provide a perfect cleaning of even the bottom of the upper tank.
The routing module is the function module to which all modules of the syrup room are connected. The control panel is also placed on the routing module. The syrup room is controlled from here.
If the beverage ingredients are delivered in IBC containers or 500/1000 litre stainless steel containers, then our container station simplifies the handling considerably. The operation takes place at normal working height. The container changing can be done simply without the risk of a significant oxygen intake into the syrup. The pump, the measurement devices (mass flow), low level probe and the necessary valves are housed in the container station. All pipes and hoses are completely integrated into the automatic CIP cleaning. The container station can be upgraded with additional spaces.
If ingredients are solid, then our dissolver is the optimal choice. Our dissolver is also suitable forto adding small amounts of liquid components. The dissolver unit takes care of a homogeneous mixture prior toin front of dosing into the syrup tank.
If raw material is delivered in barrels, the contents of the barrel must be removed from the top of the container. The suction lance can be equipped with an integrated water channel on request. This allows the hose content to be fed to the product at the end of the feed-in of the raw material. The suction lance is connected to the container station or to the solid dissolver/small component dissolver. The figure below shows a unit consisting of the suction lance module and the solid solver/small component solver.
The system can be modularly adapted to requirements, even retrospectively. Whether container stations, solid dissolver or the routing module, everything is perfectly matched and designed in every detail.
The illustration on the left shows the basic elements of the container station:
- Space for containers (module with 4 legs)
- Expansion space for containers (module with 2 legs)
- Stair element
- Railing element
- Solid dissolver / small components solver
