Ready to eat product lines

Ready to eat product lines – Wahal Engineers

The ready-to-eat product lines provide a variety of solid food options. A fully grown human loses iron and zinc, which begin to deplete, increasing the need for additional dietary intake.

However, this demands the food safety standards be highly critical for ensuring the wellbeing and health of a baby. To establish these safety standards, the processed food manufacturers must use MicVac or the pasteurization method to maintain their product’s packaging integrity. And to help your ready-to-eat production line achieve the FILL, SEAL, COOK, and COOL sequence of the Micvac method, Wahal Process Technologies provides a  unique new range of industrial homogenizers designed for use plastic transportable intermediate bulk containers (IBC) tank mixers. Our machines are suitable for various applications, such as – mixing, blending, homogenizing light viscous liquid, and re-suspension of settled solids (through the dissolution of powders).

However, first, let’s understand the advantages of an IBC container: 

  • It is designed for use on 1000/800-liter IBC Containers Mixers with 150 mm screw caps by Schutz, Sotralentz, and Van Leer
  • Various stator designs are available to suit each application
  • UP /Down movement is present either with hydraulic or through manual manner
  • The motor can be supplied with VFD – to control the speed
  • ATEX certifications are also there

All our homogenizers work on the principle of high centrifugal force produced due to the immense RPM of the rotor mounted on the main spindle. Thus, producing high shear due to the specially designed minimal tolerance between the rotor and stator. Additionally, they also homogenize the feed particles into a fine droplet size and are used for effective food pasteurization.

Apart from this, another Wahal Engineers’s product that provides the most efficient ready to make product line is homogenizers and mixers; we have categorized all machines with different units as follow:

  1.  Inline homogenizer:
  • Single Stage Inline Homogenizer
  • Two-Stage Inline Homogenizer
  • Four Stage Inline Homogenizer

  1. In-tank homogenizer:
  • Intank Batch Homogenizer (High Shear Batch Mixer)
  • Enclosed Shaft Homogenizer

 

  1. Bottom mounted homogenizers

  1. Dis-integrated dissolver:

These are best suited for disintegrating, dissolving, solubilizing, dispersing solid in the liquids, and accommodating more rigid solids into the liquids/solutions.

Planetary Mixer:

  • Planetary Mixer/Double Planetary Mixers
  • Power Mix Planetary Disperser (PDM)
  • Planetary Dual Disperser (PDDM)

 

  1. Sigma Mixers (Z Blade Mixers)
  1.  Bottom drive High Shear mixers ( Bottom mounted high shear mixer )
  1.  Batch High Shear Mixer Homogenizers
  • In-tank Batch high shear mixer
  • Enclosed Shaft high shear mixer
  1. Inline High Shear Mixer Homogenizers
  • Single Stage Inline high shear mixer
  • Two-Stage Inline high shear mixer
  • Four Stage Inline high shear mixer

Shampoos and body washes are formulations

Shampoos and body washes are formulations used for cleaning  made up primarily of chemicals called surfactants that can surround oily materials on surfaces allowing them to be rinsed away by water. Shampoos are a solution form of cosmetic product, the simplest among cosmetic formulations. But if you’re just getting started in making cosmetics, in the case of shampoos and body washes you just have to mix the raw materials all together as they will blend very nicely because of their stable properties.

  There are a limited number of shampoo types marketed, although they have lots of different names such as volumizing and moisturizing, shampoo for hair types (curly, coloured, baby hairs), natural shampoos, medicated shampoos, and speciality shampoos (powdered, spray, no-rinse, co-washing). However, while formulating a shampoo you need to figure out what characteristics you want like how thick it will be, the colour, and fragrance. 

Shampoos and body wash are basically formulated with 80% of water; 10-15% of detergents (like ammonium lauryl sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLES) and Sodium Laureth sulfate, (SLS) decyl glucoside and lauryl glucoside); 5-10% foam boosters (like Lauramide DEA or Cocamidopropyl Betaine); thickeners; conditioning agents; preservatives; and other ingredients. 

Now let’s understand how the manufacturing process is conducted. 

  1. Compounding: In this large scale cosmetic production, all the ingredients are mixed together in large, stainless steel tanks (3000 liters or more) by workers known as compounders. The raw materials are then poured into the batch tank and thoroughly mixed. The order and temperatures are determined and a computer interface is used to control the mixing speed. 
  2. Quality Control check: Here the quality control department approves for things like proper pH, viscosity, colour, odour and other specified characteristics. Once approved, it is pumped out of the main batch tank into a holding tank where it is stored until the filling lines are ready. 


Filling:  This line is just a long conveyor belt. Here the empty bottles are put into a hopper and are physically manipulated by a machine until they are upright and correctly oriented. They move along the conveyor belt to the filling carousel holding the shampoo.
