The invention relates to a method of manufacturing puree, cooked food from the lump of raw materials, primarily for use as food for small children or the elderly, including:

pre-grinding of bulk raw materials in the pre-grinding

the pre-cooking the crushed material to be accomplished by the possibility of continuous loading of the digester plant,

final processing of the welded product in the final block processing, and device for implementing the method and system of knives for grinding food.

Known for handling a wide range of vegetables and meat to obtain a puree products-semi-finished products. This can be treated as a fresh raw materials, and raw materials deep freeze. The main stages of similar methods are grinding and boiling vegetables or meat, as well as subsequent cooling and, if necessary, the final processing. When this raw material is presented in the pieces of relatively large size, for example in the form of whole Markova or potatoes, first is cut into cubes with an edge length of about 10 mm, and then ground further into the meat grinder. Usually used knife lattice hole diameter 3 - 8 mm This type of grinding is associated with hudsen the m quality because the product is squeezed, the cells are damaged, and at least partially removes the juice. Liquid and solid components of the product are separated from each other and do further processing, and the quality of the final product is problematic.

Typically the crushed product is then fed through a rotary piston pump in conveyor cooking installation. Due to the separation of solid and liquid parts, it is difficult to ensure a continuous flow of material through the pump and thereby also in the cooking installation, what also may be related to the uneven degree of readiness of the final product. In addition, frequently used conveyor cooking devices are open, resulting in the product during the process of cooking is in contact with the ambient air and possible oxidation of the ingredients. As a result of this possible impact on the color and taste of the product and get the final product is of low quality. In addition, the open design leads to a lack of efficient use of energy, as heat and moisture can get out of control.

In the known methods for the final processing is particularly fine grinding, has an open funnel. The product again comes into contact with the surrounding air and may kislitsa. The cooking device working according to the method, occupies an area of approximately 3M x 10m, therefore, desirable is a more compact installation.

The present invention is to develop a method and apparatus for making puree, cooked food, which maximally prevent crushing of raw material and thereby separating the solid and liquid phase.

This problem is solved by means known from the prior art method in which the lump raw before cooking cut into small pieces in the pre-grinding by the exclusive use of the system of the knives so that the lump of raw materials is becoming pumped, i.e. suitable for pumping or amenable to pumping mass.

According to the proposed method the raw material is cut at the stage of preliminary grinding of the knife system of such a size that the pump may exercise its further transportation and continuously feeding the downloadable cooking installation. Due to the exclusive use of knives for pre-grinding of bulk raw materials last only cut and not compressed, making compared with conventional methods, the quality of the product is increased as compared with commonly used methods, the mi as recycling through the lattice grinder, is much less damage to the cell structure of the raw material, and therefore, there is no significant removal of juice from the product. This leads, on the one hand, to the higher quality of the final product, and, on the other hand, for the better workability shredded raw material, because it is not formed of solid and liquid phases, and thereby, it is possible to reliably prevent clogging of the next block pre-shredding of the pump.

The preferred way of preliminary grinding in the pre-grinding is done through a rotational system of knives, which consists of pre-cutting knives and block rotor-stator, which is provided from the shared drive, and the speed of which, the preferred way is regulated.

Possible uniform loading of the pump, allowing also continuously loaded the cooking unit can be supplied with constant volume flow of raw material. In the digester plant raw material can then be proportional to the quantity mixed with live steam and hot. Thus the throughput of the system is regulated. During cooking, the product can be reduced further by the integrated blades with the rotor and stator.

The preferred image block has preliminarily the th grinding together with made with the possibility of continuous load cooktop installation forms a closed system, thanks to processed foods do not come in contact with the ambient air, resulting in possible to minimize undesirable oxidation reactions. These features of the process are to improve the quality of the final product. In addition, the energy efficiency of the entire system is improved because there is no unwanted release of steam and thereby effectively prevents moisture loss, and energy losses are minimized.

In addition, the preferred image of the proposed method is carried out in a completely closed system, so the food after cooking, the final processing and packaging again come into contact with ambient air only among consumers, thanks to which additionally minimizes undesirable oxidation reactions that can adversely affect the taste and quality of the end product. It also prevents contamination or contamination of the product.

Heated with live steam product can continuously be supplied to heat treatment in a tubular pasteurizer. Depending on the product to be processed and the desired final quality can be used various times of heat treatment. Using the connected system cooling product can be cooled to a temperature below 95°C and then reduce its pressure, thereby prevent the rotatin the abrupt evaporation of the water.

The preferred image of the product after the heat treatment takes place the final grinding in the block final processing, which may include additional system of knives. Also this knife system may include at least a rotor and a stator with adjustable speed.

In one embodiment, the improvement of the invention provides for the measurement of pressure pshoxproduct at the input of the pre-grinding. Due to this, get the opportunity to optimize the feed rate of the raw material which may be supplied, for example, by means of a screw conveyor, which results in optimal throughput, but clogging of the installation, and therefore a simple production reliably prevented. By comparing the measured pressure of the product pshoxwith certain previously separate reference pressure petalyou can define and adjust the optimum feed rate. Thus the automatic control operates independently of the system used fine grinding. Only the reference pressure petalmust be determined for each product separately, as, for example, fresh bread can withstand less pressure than, for example, raw carrots. Through this embodiment of the invention with the public to increase the capacity of the installation. At the same time is realized only small temperature rise of the product and prevents clogging and breakage of the knife cutting system.

Next, to solve the problem is proposed a device for making puree, cooked food from the lump of raw materials, primarily for use as food for small children or the elderly, which includes:


b)a pump for transporting the pre-crushed material,

C)continuously loaded cooktop installation, and

g)the final block processing for the final processing of the food product.

In accordance with the invention for cutting lump of raw materials to produce the pumped mass unit preliminary grinding is only the first rotational system of knives. Exclusive use of the rotary system of knives for grinding lump of raw material to its melting provides, along with improving the quality of the final product, and greater reliability of operation of the pump to transport the pumped mass and offers the most benefits in the process.

The preferred way individual modules, as the device is generally made in such a way that they form a closed system, and processed food products after the filing in the first system of the knives during the manufacturing process does not come into contact with the ambient air. Adverse reactions oxidation and contamination due to this can be effectively prevented.

Rotary knife system block pre-shredding is the preferred way includes at least a stator, the rotor and the feed disk.

In order to be able to adjust the size consistency of the final product, a rotary knife system block final processing may have a particularly small gap between the blades. Potential gaps between the knives of 0.05 mm or less.

System rotor-stator systems knives can work without contact, thus preventing the contact metal/metal, thereby increasing the service life of the systems.

At the input of the pre-grinding is preferred, it may be a pressure sensor. Due to this, it is possible to maximize the throughput of the installation while increasing reliability, as it prevents clogging, downtime and damage knives. In addition, reach more gentle handling of the product, because it prevents excessive pressure at the entrance to the block of preliminary grinding.

Also the invention concerns a rotary knife system for grinding food, which has a device for coarse grinding and at least two of the cutting block. In this first device d is I the coarse grinding performs a coarse grinding is not crushed product, and then two cutting unit perform further grinding. Each cutting unit includes a rotor or the cutting head and the stator or cutter ring. Pairs of concepts rotor/cutting head and the stator/cutter ring at the same time have the same value and can be used as synonyms. While the preferred manner set forth cutter block has a smaller gap between the knives than cutting block or blocks respectively located in front of him, this ensures a progressive dispersion of the product.

According to the invention a device for coarse grinding can be processed according to the product and, if necessary, followed cutting blocks. This is possible due to the installation of a variable number of blades, that is, for example, 3, 4 or 6 blades. It is also possible for three or more consecutive cutting units.

The system design of the knives with a device for coarse grinding and at least two cutting blocks allows relatively precise heating of the product during processing. This is an advantage for many raw materials deep freeze, because you can refuse a separate stage defrosting. Also becomes possible and the processing chocolatestarfish products.

The entire system is made closed, making processed food products after filling the funnel 22 more than not takes the Ute in contact with the ambient air. In addition, as shown in Fig.1 the device is substantially smaller area compared to installations which use normal way.

In Fig.2 shows a detailed view of the area I in Fig.1. Unground raw material is fed into the funnel 22 by means not shown here mechanism, such as a screw conveyor. Lump raw material is then ground system 2 knives, which have their own drive, and transported further through a tangential outlet 24 by means of pump 8.

In Fig.3 shows the system design 2 knife block 1 preliminary grinding. Unground raw material is fed into the funnel 22, and then is transported in the drawing to the right feed screw 26, which is also equipped with its own drive. This shipment is gentle to the raw way, so it is not damaged. System 2 knives consists of a device 28 for coarse grinding, the stator 30 with the specific gaps between the knives of the rotor 32 with the number of teeth aligned purpose, and the feed disk 34. This system 2 knife only cuts raw materials, but does not compress it, as in conventional methods of grinding, resulting in minimizing the discharge of liquid and guarantee the usefulness of the crushed raw material for pumping. System 2 knives frequency is adjustable and can reach speeds up to 4000 rpm. Through a tangential outlet 24 of the crushed raw materials out of the system 2 knives. The orientation of the tangential outlet 24 relative to the axis of rotation and thereby the direction of further transport can thus be brought into compliance with the conditions in the room.

In Fig.4 shows a view of the area II of Fig.1, in which the raw material is heated by mixing with live steam. When this pre-shredded raw in the drawing on the left - served on a plot of 40 pre-mixing. Due to specific design of the steam nozzles 42 continuously and in a proportional amount served is the amount of steam that reached the required temperature. Inside cooking devices 6 is another system 38 of the knife, which performs further grinding of the product during heating. The injected steam condenses in the pressurized system 38 of the blades and extend above the tangential outlet on the housing 54. Then the next pump 52 regulates the pressure in the system 38 of knives, which can also implement a temperature above 100°C.

In Fig.5 shows a detailed exploded view shown in Fig.4 cooking devices 6. Shown already described in Fig.4 section 40 pre-mixed with steam nozzles 42 and the mixing shaft 44, the stator 46 with a specific gap between the n is, by Mesdames, the rotor 48 with the number of teeth aligned purpose and the feeding disk 50.

In Fig.6 shows a tubular pasteurizer 10 section II and the cooling system 11 of section III of Fig.1. Crushed and already heated the product passes through several located parallel to the pipe and when it is prepared. The drawing at the bottom right it is introduced into the system of pipes and re-emerging from her left upper plot of the figure. By fitting the piping system can implement a variety of heat treatment and thereby to process products with different requirements. Then the product is cooled in the cooling system 11 to a temperature at least below 95°C, resulting after cooling, it is possible to reduce the pressure of the product and to prevent the abrupt evaporation of the water.

In Fig.7 shows the exploded view of the system 12 final processing on the area IV of Fig.1. The system 13 knives also consists of a stator 14 with a specific gap 20 between the knives of the rotor 16 with the number of teeth are aligned with the purpose, as well as the feed plate 18. System 13 knives frequency can be adjusted, and can be achieved values of number of turns 4000 rpm and more. By regulating the number of revolutions and the gap 20 between the knives can adjust the degree krupnotsvetnogo product. Potential gaps 20 between the knives in 0.05 mm, depending on the desired homogenization of the product, as well as larger and smaller gaps 20 between the knives.

In Fig.8 shows a rotary knife system with two cutting units 60, 61 in exploded view. Milled product moves in the drawing from left to right and the first ground unit 56 for coarse grinding and simultaneously transported to the next cutting unit 60. In the example implementation of the device 56 for the coarse grinding is equipped with three blades 58, but the number of blades may be aligned purpose. In the chopping block 60, the rotor 62 moves relative to the stator 64 and thereby performs the further grinding of the product. An expedient manner cutter block 61, which also consists of a rotor 63 and the stator 65, designed to further increase the degree of crushing of the product. By adjusting the gaps between the knives of the cutting units 60, 61 it is possible to achieve the required degree of grinding.

In Fig.9 shows a possible embodiment of the screw conveyor 68, which transports bulk raw materials to the system 2 knife block 1 preliminary grinding. When this screw conveyor 68 is actuated adjustable gear motor 70. Increasing due to the flow of product at nab is the t to the system 2 knives pressure determined by the sensor 66 pressure. By means of a suitable control system can adjust the feed rate so that the system has reached a high throughput without clogging.

In Fig.10 shows a possible control scheme for regulating the speed of the feed screw 26. The sensor 66 pressure measures established by screw conveyor 68 pressure pshoxproduct. Electronic equipment controller 72 speed compares the measured pressure of the product with a certain previously, product-specific pressure petaland increases the speed of the motor 70, which drives the screw conveyor 68, until Rshoxless Retal. As soon as the pressure pshoxproduct exceeds a reference pressure petalcontroller 72 speed speed reduction gear motor 70, through which the screw conveyor 68 transports a smaller amount of product per unit of time and the driving system is prevented.

The maximum reference pressure petalyou can simply determine if the water-containing products, such as fruits or vegetables. This can, for example, to fill a test cylinder, for example, with the cross-sectional area of 10 cm2the processed product. The product is then compressed by the piston and its pressure is measured at ophannim in the wall by the pressure sensor. As soon as the product leaves juice water, the allowable pressure is usually exceeded. From this limit after subtraction of the checksum, you can define Retal.

SUBSTANCE: described is a method for micronisation of polyols, comprising the following steps: a) providing a solid polyol, having chemical formula CnH2n+2On, which is solid at 20-25°C, b) feeding the polyol into a jet mill and applying pressure using nitrogen, and c) collecting the micronised polyol. Micronised polyols obtained using the disclosed method, having particle size distribution (d50) from 20 to 60 mcm and a flowability below or equal to 5 s/100 g, preferably below 5 s/100 g, are disclosed. The micronised polyols, although having lower particle size distribution compared to the corresponding milled polyols, have improved flowability. Most preferably, the polyol is selected from a group comprising one or more of such compounds as maltitol, isomalt, mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol and erythritol.

EFFECT: preferred polyols are characterised by a compressibility index equal to or higher than 40.
