Within our case studies section, you will find a range of case studies that feature our product range and illustrate the various methods we use to successfully handle and move a vast array of ingredients. You can search case studies either by product, by industry or by material.
Jacob’s Bakeries have used a Bulk Bag Discharger and Flexible Screw Conveyor to load oat flour into a mixer, via a storage silo, for 14 years - trouble-free! To produce other products in the same mixer, they are required to load alternative flours directly into the mixer. An additional Flexible Screw Conveyor has been installed to achieve this.
This Idaho based producer of agricultural powders needed to eliminate significant dust and maintenance problems associated with their existing screw conveyors and bucket elevators. Spiroflow provided new flexible screw conveyors to convey flour from outdoor silos into their process inside.
Not all materials flow freely from a hopper, storage silo, bin, or other container. Their flow characteristics largely depend on the degree of coarseness in their particle shape and the amount of moisture or semi solid matter in their content. Different solutions to assisting material flow are required as the type of flow aid which may work with one material may not necessarily suit another, or even another grade of the same material. For these reasons, Spiroflow offers a wide selection of flow promoters to suit the characteristics of various materials.
