Baker Perkins ServoForm Gemini Plus lollypop depositor

The Baker Perkins ServoForm Gemini Plus is a triple-headed depositor for ‘long-term’, three-layered products with a ‘sandwich’ appearance. It is a development of the Gemini twin-headed unit used for two-component ‘long term’ layered confectionery.

Long term layering involves a dwell time between each deposit, allowing the first level to partially set before the next one is deposited. This ensures that there is clear separation between deposits giving a true layered effect.

This physical separation means that each layer can involve different colours, textures and flavours - contrasting or complementary. Lemon and lime, sweet and sour, spicy and sweet are typical. They can be sugar or sugar free: the most common application is a combination of sugar-free polyol and Xylitol layers.

A single-headed system can produce layered confectionery in either side by side or ‘short-term’ configurations. Short term layering deposits two layers, one on top of the other in a one-shot process. The bottom layer does not have time to set so the top layer sinks into it creating some interesting effects such as ’coffee cups’ and ‘eyeballs’.

The twin-headed ServoForm Candy Max, which can reach maximum outputs of 1800 kg/h, is capable of the same broad product range as the standard ServoForm Candy depositor: one, two, three and four colours/components; centre fills, layers and stripes; inclusions and functional ingredients; all as either sugar or sugar-free varieties.

Introduced in response to demands from leading confectionery producers for higher productivity from a single line, the Candy Max features two heads which deposit the product into alternate rows of moulds.
