Application Note

De-Agglomeration Of Raisins And Dried Fruits

Kek® Centrifugal Sifter

During transportation and storage, dried fruits such as raisins, cranberries, pineapple pieces, and dates tend to agglomerate. These “blocks” of fruit are a major headache for food and confectionery manufacturers when incorporating individual fruit pieces into their products.

An automated means of de-agglomerating dried fruit blocks back to their original individual pieces with minimal damage is required to avoid spoiling the appearance and appeal of the final product. Learn about a specially adapted sifter complete with feed hopper and metering feeder.
