Press Release: Ytron-Quadro (UK) Ltd
Ytron-Quadro (UK) Ltd have recently supplied 3 very large YTRON-Y directed jet mixers to Yeo Valley Farms Production. These 55 kW mixers are installed in 45,000 litre and 100,000 litre vessels in the Crewkerne facility containing a highly viscous yogurt base.
The YTRON-Y units were part of the new facility completed by the Somerset based engineering company, Sycamore Process Engineering.
The YTRON-Y mixers ensure a homogeneous mix throughout the whole batch. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations were created to ensure the size, design and installation position of the YTRON-Y mixers were optimised for efficient and effective mixing.
Due to the size of the mixers, a special design has been used to allow maintenance of seals without the need to remove the large/heavy motor.
Yeo Valley Farms Production have been using YTRON equipment in their factories in Blagdon, Cannington and Newton Abbott for mixing, dispersing and for “smoothing” of certain of their yogurts since the 1990’s. This has included YTRON-Y units and the YTRON-Z in line rotor/stator homogeniser for various uniform mixing applications including mixing of fruit into yogurt as recently shown on the BBC program “Inside the Factory”
