Bulk Material Handling Solutions at Foodex

by Carolynn Sarver

Award-winning Spiroflow will showcase its latest state-of-the-art bulk material handling and process conveying solutions for moving food ingredients during the Foodex Show at the NEC in Birmingham (April 18-20).

Transferring food powders, flakes and granules from one area to another for processing, packaging, and distribution requires a system that is fast, easy to route, has few moving parts, leaves minimal residue and provides dust-tight operation – all essential when dealing with potentially combustible material.  As well as providing a comprehensive range of equipment and testing facilities, an outstanding level of customer service is part and parcel of Spiroflow’s ATEX approved conveying and bulk handling systems, which makes the company a cut above the rest.

Foodex attendees will see how Spiroflow’s equipment makes a difference.  In addition to demonstrating a Bulk Bag Discharger and Flexible Screw Conveyor, Spiroflow’s team will be on hand to discuss the range of flexible and totally secure solutions for food materials where the most rigid standards in hygiene and containment must be maintained.  Spiroflow’s bulk bag discharger and integrated flexible screw conveyor are ideal for totally hygienic discharging and distribution of food ingredients, including sugar, flour, and spices.  This exceptional equipment provides the very highest levels of hygiene and dust control.

The company’s T2 bulk bag discharger is a market leader, installed by major food processors worldwide for the dust-free and controlled discharge of ingredients.  Options include loss-in-weight product feed, patented massage systems to promote flow from bulk bags, hygienic bag spout sealing device, integral hoist and other features to ensure hygienic emptying of bulk bags.

The main advantage of Spiroflow’s flexible screw conveyor is its simplicity, which results in short installation times and low maintenance.  The whole system can be stripped down for cleaning in minutes and easily transports powdered, granular and flaked materials.

Food manufacturers and processors visiting Foodex looking for the best conveyor for their product that also meets stringent regulatory safety requirements need look no further than Spiroflow’s booth P276.

Finding the right conveyor will depend a lot on finding the right supplier. The key for food companies is to source a process conveying provider that understands your business, proves it can meet your requirements and includes performance guarantee – just like Spiroflow.

Visitors to Foodex at the NEC in Birmingham on April 18-20 will see some of the highest quality process conveying and bulk material handling solutions offered by Spiroflow in booth P276.
