Mayonnaise Production

Mayonnaise often referred to as mayo, is a cold sauce or an emulsification used as a condiment. It is made by blending egg yolks and oil, then flavoured with varying combinations of vinegar, mustard, herbs, and spices.

The Process


The manufacturing process involves a continuous blending system which is employed to sustain the correct degree of emulsification along with pre-measured ingredients that are piped in through openings and fed to the dynamic mixer. Pre-sterilized jars move along conveyer belts as measured amounts of mayonnaise gets poured into the jars or bottles.


The Problem


Obtaining a homogenized emulsion of oil-water with required quantities of egg yolks, vinegar etc. is a great challenge. The oil drops will be larger if the oil has been emulsified into the water phase with low viscosity, resulting in a product that is less stable and less creamy. So, obtaining a fine and a consistent mixture is the key.


The Solution


A process intensified method is obtained by integrating the UADA module into the process, fine emulsified end product is achieved with simpler construction having no moving parts.


The Advantages


RAPTECH Technology aids a homogenised solution sooner with optimised quantity of substance. As there are practically no rubbing parts, long service time without maintenance is achieved which saves a lot of money and effort on equipment cost and maintenance.
