High-Performance Nozzles for Truffly Candy Depositors
Our biggest customer had issues using a Truffly depositor on pectin syrups with the standard nozzles. After many iterations, we ended up machining them out of solid stainless steel. Since then, we have produced over 500 nozzles in over 8 states, and Canada, with complete customer satisfaction.
- The Eccentroid nozzles have a larger 6mm internal diameter, resulting in significantly less clogging and less forces within the Truffly Depositor, especially when working with syrups for gummies.
- These nozzles are designed for high volume candy production and they will result in less maintenance to the cable actuation system.
- Since each nozzle is machined from a solid block of 304 stainless steel, it can withstand greater misuse, temperature extremes.
- The Eccentroid nozzle design has no cracks for syrup to accumulate because they are made from one block of stainless steel, instead of 2 pieces press-fit together. The internal bores are even polished.
- 3 year warranty
- Testing and simulation has shown that these nozzles are much less susceptible to clogging due to better temperature uniformity

"There has been at least a 90% reduction in the number of repairs and stops in the machine. Before the nozzles were replaced, it was at least once or twice a month that the machines needed to be repaired. Now, it barely happens ever, even though there has been a significant increase in production.Problems that developed with the Truffly Machines:As more and more force was required to be applied to the lever arm, the following problems would develop:1)The lever arm would be bent physically2)The drive cables would snap3)The O-rings on the pistons would be constantly blown out4)The O-rings on the check valves would be blown out, pushing the valves through the front of the piston assemblyOf these four problems, #2, #3, and #4 were the most serious and would require decommission of the machine. The Eccentroid nozzles reduced the internal pressure, which will also reduce the overall wear and tear on the piston assembly and the rest of the machine."
