The space-saving Tetra Alblend® enables you to produce a broad range of final syrup blends and final beverages in a very cost efficient way. The in-line blending system works at very high precision and low product losses thereby reducing raw material costs. It is fully automated to ensure uniform product quality and uncompromising food safety. An automatic recipe monitoring reduces the need for manual sampling and saves preparation time. Tetra Alblend also gives you the flexibility to achieve high throughput and quick product changeovers. And the unit is easily and efficiently installed in a line solution where it helps to eliminate product losses in an entire line.
QC inline measurements enables precise mixing and saves time
A sensor continuously monitors the °Brix/density of product in the buffer tank and feeds information to the unit’s control system. Should the values go outside the norm, the flow of ingredients is automatically corrected. This system guarantees precise production, so product leaving the buffer tank is always correct and the same. It also reduces the need for manual product sampling, thereby saving operator time.
Automatic Mass Compensation keeps your process on target
AMC is the software that controls the amount of ingredients being added to Tetra Alblend, and ensures that the outgoing °Brix level is correct throughout its run time. At the start, when the °Brix values of added ingredients such as syrup and concentrate are known, the amount required in each ingredient stream is calculated. If the amount added during production differs from this, the AMC instantly corrects it. Since checks occur 4-5 times per second, you can rest assured your process is on target.
Up to 5 ingredients streams enables product variety
One of the keys to success in liquid mixing is the ability to formulate a broad variety of products cost-effectively. Making 5 ingredients streams available (though they do not all have to be used), Tetra Alblend offers a simple way to vary your recipes.
