The reclamation of confectionery waste can be difficult, which in the past has resulted in the product simply being scrapped. However, the high cost of raw materials such as sugar and cocoa means that it is increasingly important to try to reclaim and rework “off-spec” products.

The reworking process varies considerably according to the type and form of material being handled. This can vary from raw materials and ingredient blends to “finished” products. However, several problems can be encountered when using conventional agitators to reclaim confectionery including long mixing times are required to completely solubilize the waste and obtain a uniform and usable product and large lumps and agglomerates in the mix can cause serious damage to the agitator.

Silverson has developed a completely new system specifically for the reclamation of larger solids and agglomerated confectionery that uses the combination of heat, vigorous agitation, and intense high shear to accelerate the solubilization process and quickly reduce the entire contents of the vessel to a homogeneous mixture without appreciable deterioration in product quality or flavor.
