The ECOGRAV® is a flexible gravimetric weighing unit with a buffer tank and an integrated continuous pressure dissolver which uses the moisture of the glucose (corn syrup)
to dissolve the crystal sugar (or sugar free ingredient i.e. Isomalt) without having to add any or little water. The result is substantial energy savings.
The ECOGRAV® is ideal for hard candies, chewy candies, fondants, cooked sugar solutions for bars and allows a dry solids level of up 90% to be achieved prior to cooking.
This approach substantially reduces the energy required compared to traditional processes which start the cooking step at 75 – 80% dry solids, resulting in steam savings from 30 to 70%.
Other advantages of the ECOGRAV® system stems from the flexibility of a gravimetrical weighing system, which enables easy recipe and ingredient changes and last but not least
the savings of potable water in the recipe.
