Ice sugar manufacturing unit

Capacity: 250 to 3 500 kg/hr
Manufacture of icing sugar

4 models available: PalSugarIce® 25, PalSugarIce® 100, PalSugarIce® 200, PalSugarIce® 350

Icing sugar production line from crystal sugar and incorporation of anti-caking agent.

Food and pharmaceutical grade sugar for immediate use or packaging.

  • Capable of fine particle production 99% <90µm
  • ATEX 20-22 standard
  • Low energy consumption
  • Hygienic design 

The sugar grinding line is composed of a crystal sugar silo, bulk bag or sack tip unloading, feeding and dosing system to the grinding mill, a dosing storage assembly for anti-clumping (starch or potato starch) dosed at between 1.5 to 3%, a pin mill, a threshing hopper, an icing sugar extraction and a dust collection set.

** Standard average application between 1.5 to 3% starch for standard starch sugars. Starch levels can be increased depending on sugar moisture levels and climatic temperatures at the installation location if temperature control is not ensured.


Milling technology

The grinder used for the manufacture of icing sugar is a pin mill with rotating plates. This technology makes it possible to reduce the granulometry of the sugar by shattering the particle. Moisture control during the reduction phase is achieved by dosing the starch via the screw feeder as well as the threshing hopper.
The threshing hopper, sized according to the PalSugarIce® model selected, provides the temperature drop buffer of the freshly milled sugar. Stirring of the hopper is provided by a rotating unit with straight blades.

Line automation

The control of the grinding line offers the operator the selection of the desired particle size, the desired flow rate and the amount of starch to be introduced.

Typical applications

Palamatic's PalSugarIce® grinding lines are widely used in industrial chocolate factories, sugar manufacturers, industrial bakeries and even the confectionery industries. The icing sugar produced on the PalSugarIce® Palamatic  Process line is ideal for making meringues, chewing gum, chocolates, ice cream, icing, nougat, macaroons, caramel, etc.

The grinding line is ATEX 20-22 certified.

The air treatment and management of the dust collection line is fully integrated by the installation of a filtration assembly.
