Reimelt Philosophy
The Right Ingredients for a
Total Concept.
Confectionaries are food, and as such you
have to satisfy high quality and safety
requirements. This applies not only to the
quality of the end-product but also to the
production processes.
Properly coordinated raw material handling
is needed to get optimal results that are
consistent, and at the same time economical.
It is the task of the Reimelt experts to always
meet the changing requirements of the market.
We develope new solutions for products that
interest people and in doing so lay the foundation for success in the market.

Process Technology Tasks
in Raw Material Logistics
To ensure a consistent quality in production,
all process parameters have to be precisely
monitored. Reimelt systems ensure this due to
sensor technology and control philosophy.
Storage and Discharge
Raw materials must be stored according to
their individual characteristics so that the
quality of the end product is not affected.
The "first-in, first-out" principle is Reimelt's
foremost process technology concept for silo
and storage hopper design. Also key is the
hygenic design of all equipment parts and
elimination of cross-contamination concerns.
Furthermore, process parameters such as
humidity, temperature and maximum storage
time are constantly monitored and controlled.
Conveying systems from Reimelt are designed
to meet the requirements of the end product.
A wide variety of pneumatic conveying systems
are available for raw materials, ranging from
slow-speed conveying systems for gentle product handling to conventional systems to pneumatic systems utilizing a protective gas.
The conveying systems for liquids also follow
this design philosophy. Whether it be centrifugal
pumps, piston metering pumps or rotary piston
pumps, each is utilized according to the proper
Picture 1: Powdered sugar grinder with integral
pneumatic conveying
Weighing and Metering
Reimelt has mastered the concept of the batch
process as well as continuous processes, and
provides the total process technology from a
single source - from the components for batch
scaling to continuous metering scales.
We have the right solutions for the handling of
liquids also, whether it is for different product
characteristics or required metering accuracies.
Volumetric systems, such as metering pumps
and volumetric flow meters, or gravimetric
components, such as liquid scales and mass
flow meters, are all available for intergration
into the total system, complete with controls.
Tempering, drying, humidifying, homogenizing,
sifting, cooling, mixing, grinding and recrystallization: the system solutions from Reimelt encompass the entire range of raw material processing requirements. Systems for the production of plasticized fats and creams complete the
performance spectrum.

Staging of mixes and raw materials for further
processing is just as important as the storage
and discharge for production quality. Raw
materials for the production of quality end
products are provided "just in time", dependent
on the production capacity. If the amounts of
product stored is minimized and the raw material handling time is reduced, then the system is
naturally more efficient.

Diagram representation of chocolate and chocolate coating production with raw material processing mixing technology, pre- and fine rolling

The raw materials for the production of high
quality chocolates and chocolate coatings are
stored in various vessels.
Those system components must work strictly
according to the "first-in, first-out" principle to
ensure high quality. Electronic scales weigh
every single liquid and dry component exactly
and consistently.
The raw materials are metered into the mixer
according to the recipe. The contents of the
mixer are constantly monitored via weight
control in order to ensure an exact batch.
A homogenous mass is formed in the mixer and
is then sent to a pre-rolling mill or a fine rolling
mill directly or via a stainless steel metering
system. The chocolate is crushed in these mills
to get a consumable chocolate.
Stainless steel conveyor belts transport the
final mass to the final refining – the conching

In the production of fruit gumdrops, the transport is hygenically conducted by a compact,
continuous, vacuum conveying system. The
space saving pipe system can easily be integrated into the existing system and building.
The end product is received by a specially designed diverting device for gentle transport to
the receiving hoppers.
The product is discharged from the receiving
hopper via a free-flow valve, which allows even
long products to be dicharged without any
damage. Sifters and other components can be
integrated in order to separate the starch from
the end product so it can be reused in the

Gentle Handling of
Powder and Liquid Raw Materials
You begin to profit from Reimelt's Know-how
by the maximum flexibility of the raw material
receiving. The systems are designed for both a
stationary and mobile receiving station. They
can be modified according to individual requirements and work independent of the type or
dimensions of the containers. Due to sophisticated technology, discharge is practically dustfree no matter what type of packaging is
The sifting of the raw material ensures a constant quality control. Conveying is flexible to the
downstream storage or processing points.
Reimelt systems also set the standard for userfriendly operation: The delivered raw materials
are automatically entered into the recipe processing. The handling and amount information can
be modified on-site to suit your requirements.

Raw Material Logistics - Receiving
The first priority of Reimelt storage technology
is the gentle handling of the product. The storage conditions, as well as the discharge aids,
are specifically suited to the processed raw
materials. Furthermore, Reimelt systems make
both central and mobile storage possible, as
well as adjustment of the storage capacity to
suit potential future production. Raw material
inventorying is also available.
Explosion protection following internationally
accepted design standards (e.g. ATEX) makes
Reimelt systems, with respect to safety, a
sound, long-term investment.

The Best Basis...
Reproducible quality is a matter of taste – and
therefore the key to lasting product success.
As a rule, even small variances in the recipe are
immediately noticed by the consumer. For this
reason, Reimelt systems perform with extreme
precision and provide the exact desired quantities for batches and processes, in large as well
as very small amounts.

i Modular construction for possible expansion
Raw Material Logistics – Processing
...for Future
Variations in raw material properties are compensated for by blending the singular batches
together, e.g. in a homogenizing silo or pneumatic mixer, to guarantee a consistantly optimal
end product.
The recipe is controlled automatically, including
the supervision of the weighing process. Micro
ingredients are weighed either semi or fully
automatically. Productivity and capacity are
improved due to the fact that multiple recipes
can be processed in the same system consistently, from batch to batch. In addition to this,
the modular design enables expansion of the
system at any time.
