How to ensure the success of ice cream production? Today I will give you four suggestions to help you optimize production and make the most of your ice cream equipment.
Recommendation 1: Standardize the process so that the product always achieves the best results
Consistency is the king of ice cream production. Consumers expect a consistent taste and taste in every bite. Inconsistent product quality will not only disappoint consumers, but also increase your costs.
Choosing the right ice cream freezer is essential to ensure high product repeatability and minimize cost. Particular attention should be paid to the pump of the ice cream freezing machine. These pumps must be of high quality and kept in the best working condition at all times to stabilize the pressure in the freezing machine at a higher level. Pressure fluctuations may cause changes in product weight.
Recommendation 2: Minimize product waste during production start-up
When the production starts, the freezing machine always needs some time to prepare for production, so that the texture and structure of the ice cream are just right.
Some freezers are equipped with a quick start system that can reduce the loss to 20 liters. This type of freezing machine is equipped with an additional start valve, which can close the product flow to the freezing machine cylinder, so that the correct processing conditions can be achieved in the freezing machine cylinder with minimal loss of production.
Recommendation 3: Choose a freezing machine that can handle multiple product types
The versatility of the freezer is the key to ice cream production. Maybe you are still producing standard ice cream today, but one day you may want to grow your business by adding other products.
The installation cost of multiple devices is high, and the replacement of the devices is time-consuming and costly. A multifunctional freezing machine that can process all your products can solve this problem well. The key is to choose a freezing machine with a high "turn-down ratio". A high "turn-down ratio" means that the freezing machine can be produced with high or low capacity.
Recommendation 4: Maximize production uptime
No food processor can avoid production downtime due to cleaning. Ice cream is no exception.
Different ice cream products have different cleaning intervals. The key is that you need to clarify how long you want the freezing machine to run continuously, and then ask your equipment supplier whether there is a freezing machine that meets the requirements. Some freezers may need to be cleaned one or more times a day. Some freezers can run for a week after cleaning once.
