CANNED PET FOOD
OBJECT: Disperse CMC, dry flavors, dry stabilizers evenly and quickly into large batches of gravy base for canned pet food product.
PROBLEM: Dispersion and viscosity enhancement must be obtained very quickly, i.e., 1,500 gallons mixed in 6 minutes or less. Product “balls up” into sticky agglomerates. Exact amount of CMC must be used to get precise viscosity.
RESULT: Excellent results obtained. Down-mode draws in powders and allows no gum balls to form. CMC is completely dispersed. Gravy viscosity is consistant with just 6 minutes of up-mode mixing.
AB MIXER: Five Model C-3-2 mixers in 1,500 gallon product vessels.
