Application

Cocoa & chocolate

Nails or other metal objects between cocoa beans cause significant damage to screening machines or crushers, resulting in costly production downtime.

Both in the acceptance of raw cocoa beans and during processing into the final product, iron contamination can end up in the product stream. This happens during the harvest, in the process itself or during packaging.

Magnets prevent this and filter unwanted iron or stainless steel parts of all sizes from, among other things, cocoa beans, cocoa powder or liquid chocolate in heated pressure lines. This prevents damage claims and product recalls and ensures you of a high-quality end product.

Cocoa

Intake or bean unloading

Various types of magnet systems are suitable for removing metal contamination. During the intake or bean unloading where there is a lot of iron, a magnetic drum separator removes the unwanted parts from the bulk bean flow.


When there is little iron, we install a bullet magnet, cascade magnet, plate magnet or external pole magnet. This is done before the cocoa beans are ground up into powder.

Powder line or sugar intake

In the powder line and the sugar intake, external pole magnets capture unwanted iron particles from the product flow. These magnets are also suitable for so-called cake dump, after the cocoa has been pressed and when large pieces of cake come out of the press.


Magnetic grids or rotating Cleanflow magnets remove iron particles after grinding the cocoa cake. The magnet choice depends on the expected particle size of the undesirable iron particles. We will be happy to advise you on this.

Chocolate

Chocolate solidifies

The problem with making chocolate metal-free is that the product can solidify.
The solution is a double-walled magnetic filter in which hot water flows through the outer wall.


This keeps chocolate liquid. The magnetic filter removes iron particles measuring 30 µm and greater from the liquid chocolate.

Magnetic filter with sieve

Goudsmit magnetic filters for chocolate contain a sieve that filters out irregularities, such as paper, plastic particles or stones, from the product.


Merging the sieve and magnet saves handling, costs, time and heat loss. An additional benefit is that both the magnetic bars and sieve can be cleaned in a single operation.


Goudsmit makes magnetic filters for chocolate but also for cocoa powder and cocoa beans.

Metal in chocolate flakes

Chocolate chips and granules intended for garnishing cake, biscuits and yoghurt can also contain very small metal particles of less than 1 mm.


We developed a high-gradient magnetic head pulley with a strong magnet roller especially for this type of product.


It also filters weakly magnetic stainless steel particles such as AISI 304 and AISI 316 from end products.
