Colour and Flavour Dosing

BCH provide colour and flavour dosing stations which can supply up to four independent colours and flavours to the line.

Mixing is achieved through high pressure mixing chambers with all additions monitored and maintained through the plant control system.  Colour mixing is achieved through high pressure static mixers fitted on the inlet side of the flow divider.

4 Colour 4 Flavour Extruders

The process begins with a neutral cooked product being fed into a high pressure, low shear extruder.
The product is split into 4 channels, each of which can be individually coloured and flavoured.

Up to 40 ropes can be extruded onto the BCH cooling/drying tunnel each of which contains the 4 colours in equal metered proportions.

Suitable for any viscous product:

  • Sugar Paste
  • Caramel
  • Fudge
  • Chocolate
  • Nougat
  • Chew


The flow control of each colour channel to each rope is automatic and no manual regulation of the machine is required leading to quick start-up and guaranteed rope weight control.
Rope can be extruded in a huge variety of shapes and designs including twisted, straight, flat strap, squares and stars. They can also have hollow or filled centres.

• Labour saving with quick start-up
• Unique CIP Systems reducing energy costs
• Flexible and fast colour change
