Award-winning Spiroflow will be showcasing its latest state-of-the-art bulk handling and conveying solutions for shifting food ingredients during the Foodex Show at the NEC in Birmingham (April 18-20).
Transferring food powders, flakes and granules from one area of a factory to another for processing, packaging and distribution requires a system that is fast, easy to route, has few moving parts, empties the system of product with minimum residue and provides a dust-tight operation -– 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 really makes the company a cut above the rest.
Foodex attendees can see for themselves how Spiroflow’s equipment can make a difference. In addition to demonstrating working models of 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 need to be met and maintained.
Spiroflow’s bulk bag discharger along with the flexible screw conveyor are ideal for the totally hygienic discharging and distribution of food ingredients, including sugar, flour and spices, within a factory environment. This exceptional equipment fulfils the very highest levels of hygiene and dust control, whatever strict operating parameters are in place.
The Model T2 bulk bag discharger is a market leader, installed by major food processors world-wide for dust-free and controlled discharge of ingredients. Options include loss-in-weight product feed, patented massage systems to promote flow from bags, hygienic bag spout sealing device, integral hoist and other features to ensure hygienic emptying of 1-2 tonne 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. 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.
Food manufacturers and processors visiting Foodex – possibly agonising over which conveyor not only best suits their product but also meets the stringent regulatory safety requirements – need look no further than Spiroflow’s stand P276.
Finding the right conveyor will depend a lot on finding the right supplier. The key for food companies is to source a conveyor provider that understands your business, proves it can meet your requirements and who will give a performance guarantee – just like Spiroflow.
