Spiroflow Ltd will be at Interpack in May, showcasing some of the dust-busting equipment it has available to help ensure strict hygiene and safety regulations are met for shifting millions of tons of very fine ingredients and particles within a factory environment.
Visitors to Spiroflow’s stand 4E59-04 during the show in Düsseldorf, Germany, will see the latest in bulk handling and conveying equipment – the T2 bulk bag discharger, bulk bag filler and flexible screw conveyor – ideal for process industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, chemicals, minerals and plastics.
The T2 bulk bag discharger provides a dust-tight operation which empties product with the minimum of residue and has angled framework, not horizontal flat surfaces, limiting dust settlement from ingredients such as sugar, flour and spices – avoiding contamination and saving time on cleaning.
Sharing the stand with the T2 bulk bag discharger will be Spiroflow’s bulk bag filler (FIBC). Manufactured entirely of stainless steel with automatic height adjustment for different-sized bags, the filler offers bag inflation and a vibration facility for an even, accurate fill and effective compaction – resulting in a stable load for both storage and transportation.
Last but not least Spiroflow will be demonstrating the totally hygienic flexible screw conveyor for the safe distribution of food and chemical ingredients. This cost effective equipment fulfils the very highest levels of hygiene and dust control, whatever strict operating parameters are in place.
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. It can transport powdered, granular and flaked materials with a bulk density up to 2.5kg/1 and carry material to a maximum distance of 20 metres, although multiple units can extend to greater distances as required.
Flexibility and totally secure handling is required if products have to be conveyed dust-free over long distances and complex routes within an operating plant. Spiroflow, a world-leading manufacturer of ATEX approved conveying and bulk handling systems, has a wide range of solutions for materials where the most rigid standards in hygiene and containment need to be met and maintained.
Having equipment that avoids dust contamination is crucial for the quality and safety of products, said Spiroflow’s marketing manager, Ben Ayrton. He added "We are delighted to be demonstrating fully working examples of our flexible and totally secure handling systems at Interpack. The cornerstone of our success is the ability to design and develop bespoke equipment to meet the needs of individual customers."
Finding the right conveyor will depend a lot on finding the right supplier. The key for companies is to find a conveyor provider that understands your business, proves it can meet your requirements and who will give a performance guarantee – just like Spiroflow.
Visitors to Interpack in Düsseldorf on May 8-14 will be able to see for themselves some of the high-quality conveying and bulk handling equipment on offer from Spiroflow.
