How to choose between sauce filling machine and soy sauce and vinegar filling machine?
Since the epidemic, Chinese catering consumption habits have undergone tremendous changes: people who used to "keep their hands clean" had to grab a spatula to cook for themselves, and gradually shifted from eating out to home cooking. According to data from iMedia Research, China's seasoning market is expected to reach 513.3 billion yuan in 2022 and reach 788.1 billion yuan in 2025. To meet the growing market demand for soy sauce, vinegar, and other essential condiments, production companies must plan ahead to enhance filling efficiency and layout. Additionally, they should update their filling equipment, such as investing in soy sauce and vinegar filling machines, to keep up with production demands, which will help ensure that sauce production remains efficient, effective, and competitive in the industry.
Before riding on this trend, you need to first understand some of the current difficulties encountered when filling soy sauce and vinegar, and based on these difficulties, look for suitable filling machines that can overcome these difficulties.
Four Difficulties in Sauce Filling
Difficulty 1: Product bubbling
When operating the sauce filling machine and soy sauce and vinegar filling machine, excessive filling speed can lead to product bubbling, which may interfere with liquid level detection and adversely affect the capacity consistency of the production line.
Difficulty 2: Product leakage
Since the filled sauce is more viscous than ordinary water, dripping will inevitably occur during the operation, which is a big challenge for maintaining pipeline cleanliness.
Difficulty 3: Equipment Corrosion
The high salt content in soy sauce and the acidic nature of vinegar can affect the lifespan of the soy sauce and vinegar filling machine. Additionally, they may alter the flavor of the liquid product. Thus, the pipe materials and cleaning systems of the sauce filling machine must meet higher standards.
Difficulty 4: Accurate filling
The last filling difficulty in sauce filling is accurate filling. Accurate filling is a key to the control of production costs of enterprises. If liquid overflows during the filling process, it will increase the number of pipeline cleanings at best, and cause pipeline pollution at worst, affecting the smooth filling process of the soy sauce and vinegar filling machine.
So, how to choose the most suitable sauce filling machine and soy sauce and vinegar filling machine?
When choosing a soy sauce and vinegar filling machine, you can refer to the following four suggestions:
1. Choose the appropriate filling speed
To avoid product bubbling or bottlenecking the production process, it is essential to choose a sauce filling machine that can be adjusted to the ideal filling speed. Therefore, when selecting a filling machine, it is crucial to consider the actual production needs and choose a machine that can meet the most suitable filling speed requirements.
2. Choose a filling machine with CIP system
During the sauce filling process, the pipes need to be kept clean to avoid mold of the products on the shelves. Therefore, liquid condiment manufacturers need to choose a sauce filling machine equipped with a CIP system (Clean in Place) to clean it in time when leakage occurs.
3. Choose a filling machine with high anti-corrosion performance
The salt and acidic substances in condiments will corrode pipes with insufficient anti-corrosion performance. Therefore, it is necessary to choose a soy sauce and vinegar filling machine with anti-corrosion treatment on the pipes to increase the service life of the machine while ensuring product safety and reduce business costs.
4. Choose a filling machine with accurate measurement
Quantitative filling is an important condition for achieving large-scale production. Therefore, the most appropriate quantitative filling method should be selected based on the characteristics of the liquid product to ensure product consistency.
