Dehumidifiers for the Confectionery Industry

Confectionary items are one of the most popular food items in New Zealand. Confectionery items such as gum, sugar confectionery, chocolate are popular in all the demography of the population. Apart from the Covid-19 period, the confectionery industry in the world is growing year by year. With the growth in the market, there is also steep growth in competition among the manufacturers. Whether it is a small-sized home-based confectionery industry or large-sized industry humidity is a great challenge in the field. The main ingredient sugar in confectionery is hygroscopic in nature and readily absorbs moisture from the environment. Hence moisture causes a variety of problems in production if it is not properly maintained. The high content of sugar in the confectionery items absorbs moisture from the air causing it to become sticky. It also causes the item to be prone to mold.

Various applications in the confectionery industries require dehumidification. Dehumidification is required during storage, transportation, unloading into silos, packaging, coating, etc. Dehumidification is required during the manufacturing process as well as during other steps of delivering it to the customers. There can be very bad consequences even if the humidity is not maintained in one of the steps. So appropriate humidity must be maintained during the candy coating process, packaging of confectionery items, transportation, unloading and storage of the products, candy coating process, and drying and cooling tunnel operation.

What can really go wrong if humidity is not kept under control?

First of all high humidity can cause the confectionery items to lose their quality and shelf life. In many cases, they even lose their desired shape when they come in contact with humid air during the production process.  They tend to get sticky and moldy due to the moisture in the air. The machines and pipes get clogged and a significant amount of time can be lost in production due to high humidity. It is both time and cost-intensive and must be avoided by the manufacturer.
