Mango Pulps Juices
India is the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables in the world.
Exotic, sweet smelling colourful mangoes are rich in nutritional values and are normally grown in the tropical regions of the world. Presently nearly 40% of world's mangoes are produced from India. Known as the 'King of tropical fruits' different varieties of mangoes are processed for preparing many products such as juices, pulps, squashes, jam and pickles.
In Tamil Nadu, Krishnagiri and other adjoining areas have rich mango cultivation. Nearly 300017 hectares are under mango cultivation in this district providing the required quantity of raw materials needed for mango pulp industries. Mangoes are seasonal fruits and are not available throughout the year and they cannot be preserved in the original form for long.
To have the pleasure of tasting the mango virtually in every drop without losing its taste, flavour and colour at all times must have been a distant dream once, but it is a tasty reality now. Mango pulp processing technology has virtually helped people to have their 'ATM'–ANY TIME MANGO!
Our Pulp Manufacturing Process
Mangoes from our farms are transported to the Pulp Unit and additional quantities of Mangoes are procured from different villages in and around Krishnagiri, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka as per the requirement of the pulp unit.
Mangoes are then spread on the floor over the hay stalks in ripening chambers in such a way ensuring free circulation of air. Fruits thus stored will be inspected by supervisors after three to four days to ensure whether the fruits have started ripening and are ready to be sorted.
A Group of workers segregate ripe and unripe fruits from the lot. Decayed fruits are removed during this sorting. Unripe fruits are kept aside in a separate lot to ripen in the near days and the ripened fruits are carried by the workers to be put on the conveyor belt to be taken for production.
Nearly 1000 tonnes of mangoes are sorted out in a day and the ripe fruits are fed to the conveyor belts. Quality control staff supervise to ensure that only good ripened fruits move on the conveyor.
The ripened fruits moves on the conveyor belt and reaches washing machine.
Fruits are being thoroughly washed in the water mixed with chlorine to remove the bacterias from the skin.
DIPPING IN THE NORMAL WATER
They are again dipped in the normal water and thoroughly cleaned again and fruits are then sent to the next stage.
Mangoes thus cleaned with fresh water are then sent to cutting conveyor. On each side of the conveyor belt our employees are engaged in removing the stem attached to the fruits. In addition to this, any damaged fruits if found will also be removed at this stage. These food grade fruits are moved to the next stage called De – stoner through the 40 feet food grade conveyor belt.
In the De-stoner the outer skin and the hard seed are separated. The pulp from the fruits get collected in a tank. De-Stoner extracts only the pulp leaving aside skin and the hard mango nut.The pulp thus collected in the tank is sucked through the screw pump and flows through the SS pipes to reach the pulper
The pulper has the capacity of 5 tonnes. The process of filtration of the pulp takes place here. Fruit fibers and other dross in the pulp are removed at this stage. Pure fruit pulp is then collected in a tank called finisher tank. The pulp collected in this tank is ready for process. This pulp is normally called cold pulp.
PRE – HEATER TANK
The cold pulp is sent to the holding tank before heating. Cold pulp is being sent through SS Pipe to the Pre-Heater. Here the pulp is heated making use of steam by providing 60 to 70 degrees centigrade of heat. The heated pulp is then collected in the collection tank. This pulp is again sent to the De-Canter machine for removing dross which appear in the pulp.
Dross free, bacteria free, pure mango pulp is ready and it is received in the collection tank. The pulp from the collection tank is pumped to the sterilizer and initially the pulp is heated up to 110 degrees centigrade with the help of steam which flows in the reverse direction.
Subsequently the pulp is sent to the cooling module. In this cooling module the temperature of the hot pulp is stabilized to 28 to 30 degree centrigrade with the help of chilled water which flows on the reverse side of the module. This effect of heating and subsequent cooling provides with the pulp free from lively organisms. Entire quality control process is totally mechanized and controlled by the technicians who operate on the computer panel attached to the sterilizer. Finally the pulp reaches the filling head. The pulp is being filled in the aseptic bags which are thoroughly sterilized using steam , untouched by human hand conforming to international standards.
The pulp is filled in Aseptic Bags to around 210 to 215 kgs kept in the drums and sealed. The filled drums are moved to the godowns and put on the lots and kept ready for shipment.
We have facility to pack Pulp in Aseptic bags and Tins. We do Packing as per our Customer needs.
