Silverson 'How to' video series
A series of videos produced by Silverson Machines Ltd showing you how to get the best results from key ingredients in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic industries.
Mayonnaise is an oil-in-water emulsion with an oil content which varies widely from 80% to as little as 20% in low fat products. A Silverson High Shear In-Line mixer is ideal for this challenging application. Water is recirculated through the In-Line mixer, egg and other aqueous phase ingredients are added and rapidly hydrated - producing an agglomerate-free pre-mix. The oil is introduced into the mix just prior to the inlet of the mixer so that the two phases are intensively mixed on contact in the high shear zone, creating an instantaneous emulsion. The oil is drawn in at a controlled rate to ensure a stable emulsion is formed. The unique pumping rotor in the Silverson High Viscosity In-Line model maintains the flow rate as the viscosity increases, making sure the oil is incorporated at a uniform rate as the mayonnaise thickens. A batch is completed in a short mixing cycle and with a Silverson mixer repeatability is guaranteed. Silverson also offer a complete system for smaller scale production. The Silverson mayonnaise plant overcomes the problems associated with manual production and provides the quality and repeatability of large scale production.
