Refer to the flow diagram of apple jam manufacturing process. Describe it in words in the form of a technical summary. (At least 150 words).
The flow diagram draws the manufacturing process of apple jam in a commercial plant. The process is broken into various stages. In the first stage, the unit receives supply of apples from the producers. The raw apples are then sorted at the plant. Suitable pieces are washed and cleaned for pre-processing. During the pre-processing stage, the apples are crushed by machine and transferred into a mixing vessel.
Next is the mixing stage in which the crushed apple pulp is mixed with water and lime juice and the sucrose source is screened simultaneously. Once the mixing is completed, the pulp is sent into the boiling chamber where it is boiled and homogenised, and readied to be set. The setting of the jam happens inside the holding vessel where the cooked mixture is allowed to stand and set.
While the jam sets, the jars are washed and sanitised in a separate unit and readied to be filled. The jars are then queued and filled from the holding vessel and moved forward to the labelling unit for labelling and holding. Once the stipulated batches of jars are manufactured and packaged, they are dispatched.
