FOOD MATERIAL HANDLING CASE STUDIES

  • Del Monte Installs Bulk Material handling Equipment For Soup Production

    A Del Monte plant in Mendota, IL is responsible for producing canned soups that appear on grocery store shelves under more than 50 different brand names. Installation of a food-grade bulk bag discharging and metering system that would gravimetrically supply between 750 and 1500 lbs of either material to either of two 900 gallon stainless steel mix tanks in 10 minutes, would not exceed 21 feet in height and, could be quickly disassembled and cleaned using high pressure hot water allows them to producing (6) 900 gallon batches of soup base an hour.

  • Controlling Dust In Grain Manufacturing Operations

    With the original dust filtration systems were installed in the 1970s and used large shaker-style baghouses the age and style of the systems presented several risks such as worn condition of the older equipment and the low filtration efficiency by current regulatory standards. With new dust collectors from Schenck Process they were able to maintain acceptable dust levels and reduce plant downtime.
