Machine Release Agents
No adhesion, no sticking together
Those producing hard and soft caramels require one thing most of all – a product providing an optimum and long-term separating effect between the machine surface and the sticky sugar. This is because systems and machines are subject to high demands in the confectionery industry: On the one hand the high standards of the food industry are to be observed, on the other effective protection is the aim. This is precisely what we offer with our CAPOLEX® solutions.
Hard and Soft Caramels
Sustainable protection for machines
CAPOLEX® solutions for machines comprise different textures, from very liquid and sprayable to pasty and very firm. Derivatives based on palm kernel, rapeseed, sunflower or paraffin oil have different properties, which, in combination with for example lecithin, optimize the separating effect for improved surface wetting.
They are used wherever products, like for example hard and soft caramels, have an extremely sticky surface, and the sticking of sugar mass to machine components is to be prevented. Furthermore, they enable trouble-free production processes and protect the stressed machine parts against corrosion and wear.
Depending on which machines are used, our solutions can be spread on, sprayed on or applied via a dripping device. CAPOLEX® release wax is suited to the application on various machines: cooling and transport conveyors, cooling rolls, cooling and heat tables, embossing machines, blades and cutting devices, extrusion molders, extrusion presses, candy cooker systems.
