Clean in place option: Less parts to strip and clean means less damage to machine parts while cleaning and fewer lost seals, ‘O’ rings etc and quicker machine turn round time.
To clean, remove hopper and outlet, connect to C.I.P. system and turn on, system will clean while hopper and outlet are manually cleaned.
H.M.I. Screen with recipe selection: All recipes can be saved and recalled at will, i.e fill speed, weight, product specific gravity, suck-back etc. Each recipe can be calibrated for the S.G. of that particular product and saved. All settings relevant to the recipe can be saved.
This means on selection of that recipe the pump will deposit the correct weight after approximately the second deposit and set up time is reduced because of this. Screen data can be password protected to prevent unwanted operator interference.
Faster Production: Because the pump is a positive pressure system you can fill the second tray virtually instantaneously (a piston pump needs to recharge its cylinder before it can do a second deposit). This gives a faster fill rate.
Better Presentation: The pump speed is fully controllable, therefore the product can easily be deposited along the length of the product. With varying weights being deposited in the same tray, we can cover the same target area by speeding up or slowing down the pump speed to suit.
What we did
Our client is one of the largest frozen ready meals producers in the US, making two million meals every day at three manufacturing facilities.
The firm contacted Apple when it wanted to replace one of its depositing machines which was being used to apply gravy and sauces to ready meal trays and was losing significant amounts through lack of accuracy.
