Optimize Production with Effective Ingredient Handling

Close-up of a granulated sugar

Ignoring the essentials of ingredient handling during procurement and design can severely disrupt your production line. Despite this, effective control of ingredients in food manufacturing is often undervalued. A new equipment investment will allow you to optimize production with effective ingredient handling, helping you prevent potential setbacks in your manufacturing process. 

Equipment like mechanical or vacuum conveyors, mixers, bulk bag unloaders, and sieves should be robust and well-designed – controlling their operation is critical. Ensuring your supplier has a skilled team of both electrical and mechanical designers, who grasp your needs and offer reliable advice and support, is essential. 

The Importance of Selecting Durable Equipment

When aiming to enhance production, cut waste, and reduce downtime, it’s crucial to look beyond short-term solutions. A low-cost screw conveyor or sieve might work initially, but for long-term flexibility and continuous operation, investing in robust Spiroflow conveyor belt systems is wise. Opting for durable equipment from reputable conveyor manufacturers minimizes future costs related to spare parts, hassle, and downtime.

Effective Ingredient Handling Strategies

Bulk ingredients in forms like powder, granule, or flake can significantly vary in flow properties, making effective handling a challenge. To address this, it’s essential to choose the right mechanical equipment, such as a flexible screw conveyor or conveyor belt system, that can manage these variations. Additionally, a sophisticated control system is necessary to monitor flow and adjust transfer rates, ensuring consistency in product quality and avoiding operational inefficiencies.

Key Considerations for System Design

To guarantee your conveyor system aligns perfectly with your operational requirements, it’s essential to establish a comprehensive control philosophy. This strategy should account for various aspects to ensure seamless production, including:

  • Operator inputs,
  • Batch cycles,
  • Cleaning regimes,
  • Compliance with NEMA or Atex standards.

The Value of Comprehensive Machine Testing

Machine demonstrations and product testing should accurately reflect your operational conditions. This involves thorough testing across various industrial conveyor systems to determine the optimal configuration for your specific needs. Involving your operational staff in these tests can provide additional insights into day-to-day challenges.
