Truffly made depositor with hard candy

Does anyone here make hard candy?
do you use a depositor?
Any advice on temps to heat the hopper with minimal caramelizing?
Ive been making infused hard candies for a few months now and just purchased a depositor to play with for gummies but i also want to use it to make my hard candy production take less time.
I know everyone here holds their SOPs very tightly, but does anyone have any advice? i have a recipe and i have some ideas that may work, just hoping for some adivce from people who have experience already!
Thank you in advance!

Hi JoJoAGoGo,
I am working on the same exact thing.
We make tons of gummies and use an LST Depositor.
Work great for those.
This depositor is not working well with the hard candy …yet.
Freezes up I think due to the nozzles not being hot enough…I think.
The Instructions say to heat system to 128C. Did that but still locking it up during deposits. Heck of a chore to clean up after that.
I hope someone can share a trick or two.
