AJAX supply a wide range of handling and processing equipment for food producers including mixers, feeders, heat exchangers, lump breakers and cryogenic coolers

Powder Handling and Processing for the Food and Beverage Industries

Ajax Equipment has supplied a range of solids handling equipment to leading food and confectionery manufacturers in Europe, US, Asia and South America.

Ajax has designed and supplied hoppers for storing and discharging cocoa powder - one of the more difficult powders for solids handling equipment to handle. A tendency to cake, together with poor flow in its un-milled form, can also make handling difficult unless sufficient attention is paid to ensuring the equipment is designed sympathetically to the powders' flow characteristics. In this way, flow problems caused by 'bridging' over an outlet or rat-hole formation are avoided using Ajax hoppers.

For food production, Ajax Equipment has developed a range of processing equipment compliant with EU Hygienic Design standards, including BS EN 1672-2 (2005) and EHEDG. These include:

Continuous mixers (single and twin screw) for homogenising chocolate and other pastes as well as incorporating inclusions including toffee, cereals, crispies, nuts, and fruits. The mixers feature a heated jacket and screw shaft to ensure the liquid chocolate maintains the required temperature.

Custom built mobile and adjustable screw feeder for insertion of powders and pastes at a constant and consistent flow rate into confectionery products, as part of a continuous production process.

Lump breakers - ideal for reducing lumps, caked and bag set materials to a consistent particle size for ease of processing. Available in low and high-speed versions for hopper and chute feed, the low speed model is ideal for gentle crushing of brittle material without excessive dust and fines,

All Ajax equipment for confectionery production is designed for ease of maintenance and clean-in-place.
