New cooler for chocolate moulds

Innovative internal conveyor system and renewed design

In food manufacturing plants, especially those used in the manufacture of chocolate-based products, the conditioning of moulds is a fundamental function – both when they are empty, before the product is dosed, and when they are full, so the changes of state necessary to the process can occur.

The plants, which feature conveyors to carry these moulds at various stages of the process, must be able to group together stacks of moulds within a restricted, temperature-controlled space, placed at set distances apart, and convey them so as to produce high volumes without affecting the continuity of the rest of the process.
These high volumes require controlled flows of cooling or heating fluid that are as uniform as possible, for obvious quality control reasons.

This cooler is essentially a version of such a grouping/conditioning machine, given that the same innovative transfer characteristics can apply equally to heating plants, and the internal route still comprises an entry stacking section, an upper transfer system, and a descending stacking exit system, taking the moulds to the transport system downstream.
