Packing premixes

Jan 11, 2013 | Food Processing & Packaging

Problem: Devenish Nutrition, a agri-technology company that manufactures premixes, pre-starters, starters and concentrates and speciality products for the intensive livestock sector, required a high accuracy automatic packing system for its Belfast production facility.

Solution: Following on from a successful project earlier in the year, Chronos BTH will supply a single head packing system to Devenish Nutrition that will upgrade the facility’s current manual packing system. The bottom-up filling technology will provide a hygienic filling solution and enhanced filling accuracies for the supplements.

Features on the OML-1030BF bagging system will include: a servo controlled dosing tube for enhanced accuracy; top air de-aeration of the filled bags; and an integral sewing machine/crape tape applicator for reliable bag sealing. Each packing system will include an automatic product sampler and an integral label printer/applicator to ensure each bag is correctly identified and the label consistently applied in the same position.

Dermot O’Brien, of Devenish Nutrition, said: “The high filling accuracies, coupled with the proven and reliable operating design of the filling system were all key factors in deciding to place the order with Chronos BTH.”
