Powder packing

Jan 18, 2012 | Food Processing & Packaging

Problem: A new production facility being installed at the Milk Link Taw Valley Creamery in Devon is part of a multi-million pound joint investment project between Milk Link and Volac. The facility required a filling system to pack whey permeate powder.

Solution: Operating in a clean room environment, a Chronos BTH OML-1040-BF Bottom-Up Filling System will be used to pack 25kg weighments of whey permeate powder into polyethylene lined pinch-top paper bags.

Coarse filling will be carried out by the filler prior to product de-aeration using in-built de-aeration probes. Chronos BTH is also supplying a FIBC?Filling system.
