These projects show that renovations and new facilities aren't just for the billion-dollar food and beverage processors. Small and medium-sized processors can benefit from properly scaled and engineered solutions too.
FDA has issued a final guidance to provide clarity on the labeling of added sugars for single-ingredient packages or containers of pure honey, maple syrup and other single ingredient sugars and syrups as a result of a requirement contained in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (Pub. L. 115-334), known as the Farm Bill.
Offering unobstructed access to all 4 sides of a palletized load, Southworth LiftMat low-profile lift tables have a lowered height of 3 1/4 ins., a raised height of 31 1/2 ins. and a lift capacity of 2,200 lbs.
The Material Transfer sanitary, stainless steel bulk bag filling system has continuous TIG welds, round-tube horizontal frame members, and a stainless steel material inlet tube with an outer dust control sleeve and no tube penetrations.
The system uses a dust-tight discharge connector to the feed hopper for dust-free material flow from the bag to the vacuum conveyor and downstream production and packaging processes without contamination of the material or work environment.
The laboratory-scale version of the Romaco Innojet VENTILUS V 5 processing machine includes a cylindrical product container with homogeneous flow conditions inside to promote gentle intermixing of a batch.
Engineered for use with Coperion K-Tron loss-in-weight feeders, the Coperion K-Tron Electronic Pressure Compensation system provides automated indications and responses to feeder performance influences, such as pressure and vacuum.
Dust Alert Model DD-3000 is designed with integrated electronics and a sensing probe that uses inductive electrification technology to detect and alert—via an alarm relay or 4-20 mA output—when dust emissions exceed a preset point.
The Acrison Model 905-18 304 stainless steel volumetric feeder has a 5-cu.-ft. supply hopper with a distribution trough that empties onto a slow-moving metering/conveyor belt with 2 pile depth control and leveling mechanisms.
