Pilot-scale mayonnaise development plant

A  British machinery maker has developed a unit for small to medium sized pilot-scale production of mayonnaise. The unit can carry out the entire process, including rapid preparation of premixes, hydration of thickening and stabilising agents and preparation of the final oil-in-water emulsion.

The equipment is designed to meet the need for a simple and reliable system which overcomes the problems associated with manual production. It provides the repeatability and quality of turnkey plants without the considerable cap expenditure.

The unit is mounted on a stainless steel skid and comprises a specially-designed high-shear in-line mixer, control panel, process vessel and associated pipework and valves. A mobile vessel for oil feed is also included.
