The KNOLL “sugar worm” – the MX progressing cavity pump in action in the confectionary industry

sweetsConfectionary – who can resist the sweet temptation? On average, Germans eat 32 kg of sweets in a variety of forms every year. Hard candies are particularly popular, coming as they do in many different flavours.

The MX by KNOLL Maschinenbau is ideal for producing this well-loved confectionary. Hanover-based Hänsel Processing GmbH, a respected plant and systems supplier in the confectionary industry, has been happily using the MX progressing cavity pump for a number of years now.

Crucial factors for the customer are the hygienic design of the MX and its excellent cleanability. As with many plant constructors, the MX scores highly for its compact overall length which allows the pump to be integrated into the overall system in a space-saving way. The high dosing accuracy of the MX enables Hänsel Processing to fill exactly portioned batches of hard candy mass.

For this application, KNOLL uses a heated stainless steel double jacket for the MX as standard. This allows media such as toffee, fondant or jelly mass to be kept at a constant temperature and, thus, to be conveyed easily and gently. The uniform elastomer wall thickness of the EvenWall® stator provides good, even heat transfer between the double jacket and the medium. The uniform thermal expansion of the stator elastomer has a very positive effect on its useful life and, thus, on the productivity of the overall system.
