Flavors and Fragrances High Dimension Batches
In a Fragrances and Flavours mixing room there are many possible solutions to prepare large batches.
These depend particularly on the size and how often they are produced.
Some of these possibilities are described below.
If the big mixers are not directly connected to raw materials tanks and are not placed on load cells, very large dimension batches can be easily prepared dividing the formulas in two parts:
One part with full containers or drums and a second part with broken weights prepared on the automatic line.
Another good solution would be to keep most part of the raw materials, not in drums, but in large tanks under nitrogen.
The filling of the large tanks of raw materials would be made in the dead time, so they will be homogeneous and preserved under nitrogen.
The pick up of the products needed could be made by Cluster not necessarily automatic with 1 1/2" or 2" pipes.
The transfer from the Cluster to the big mixers is much faster than uploading directly from the drums.
