The occurrence of biofilm on the mixer leads to accumulation of sugar additives and can lead to blockage of the mixer, which occurs several times a year.
The occurrence of clogging in the blender requires shutting down the entire production for a work shift.
The mixer had to be cleaned due to production problems and required intensive high-pressure cleaning work of more than 30 minutes to be completely cleaned. A clear blue colour of iron was present on the surface.
The mixer was in a “reasonably acceptable” condition and caused no problems for production. However, some unevenness could already be observed on the sides of the unit.
Static mixer 4 was largely clean, with visible stainless steel where the camera had previously passed. A layer of dirt particles was present, which could be easily removed by rinsing.
After 3 months since the installation of ultrasonic on mixer 4, a clear difference can be observed in the degree of cleanliness compared to the other mixers.
