Title (EN) REACTION VESSEL FOR PROCESSING A SOLUTION OF COCOA AND THE DERIVATIVES THEREOF
(FR) REACTEUR POUR TRAITER UNE LIQUEUR DE CACAO ET SES DERIVES
Abstract:
(EN) An autoclave-type reaction vessel has a means for stirring and recirculating the cocoa solution, said means having a greater mechanical performance which allows for an increase in the efficiency of the various processing steps, in particular by means of an increase in the water content of the solution. In a closed vat (1), stirring elements (32 to 35) are mounted on a hollow rotatable shaft (6) driven by a back-geared motor (7). Some of the solution is drawn off at the bottom of the vat by an external pump (36) which delivers it up the inside of the hollow shaft (6) to a spraying head (41). Processing fluids (48, 49) such as neutral gases and alkaline solutions may be added to the solution before it reaches the pump (36).
(FR) Un réacteur du type autoclave, est pourvu de moyens d'agitation et de recirculation de la liqueur de cacao qui exercent une action mécanique plus intense, permettant d'augmenter l'efficacité des divers traitements, en particulier grâce à une augmentation de la teneur en eau de la liqueur. Dans une cuve fermée (1), des organes d'agitation (32 à 35) sont montés sur un arbre rotatif creux (6) entraîné par un groupe motoréducteur (7). De la liqueur est prélevée au bas de la cuve par une pompe extérieure (36) qui la refoule à l'intérieur de l'arbre creux (6) jusqu'à une tête de projection (41). Des fluides de traitement (48, 49), tels que des gaz neutres et des solutions alcalines, peuvent être introduits dans la liqueur en amont de la pompe (36).
