Irish supplier Carbery Ingredients has installed a £1m bag packer from Premier Tech Chronos at its Ballineen factory, near Cork, in Ireland, with operations starting at the end of the year.

Carbery Ingredients supplies nutritional and functional ingredients based on whey proteins. It includes its flavour business, Synergy, as well as its dairy ingredients business.

Two dosing systems to prevent contamination

The packing facility includes a Bottom-Up Filling system with two dosing systems, Compact palletiser, hygienic FIBC system and a Stretch-All stretch hooding system.

Steve Alman, after-market sales support,Premier Tech Chronos, told DairyReporter, its OML-2040-BFH1 Bottom-Up Filling system will pack powdered products into block bottomed paper bags with PE inner liners and pinch top closures.

The OML-2040-BFH1 is a twin head bottom up filling system that includes two gross dosing and two dosing systems, to prevent contamination between different products,” he said.

It has an easy cleaning dosing hopper for clean-down between products and the packing system will have product de-aeration, bag top air removal, heat sealing with pinch top bag closure system for sealing the PE liner and activation of the pre-applied bag mouth glue.”

EHEDG hygienic design

According to Alman, there is more emphasis on the quality of a product and making them more hygienic in the manufacturing phase.

He said he was seeing an increase in demand for high end specifications on its machinery designed to comply with the latest EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group) standards.

As part of the Carbey installation, filled bags will be transported to a CPL-600 palletiser, via a bag conveying system with metal detection, in line with a dynamic check weigher, auto reject station and batch printing facility using an ink jet printer.

The CPL-600 palletiser has an empty pallet magazine and paper sheet dispenser for bottom sheets. Pallet sizes 1200mm x 800mm up to 1400mm x 1100mm including 1200mm x 1000mm will be handled and there is a Stretch-All stretch hooding system for automatically hooding pallets.

To supplement the 25kg packing system Premier Tech Chronos is also supplying a hygienic FIBC Filling System.

This has a pallet dispenser to release empty pallets to the Filling System, which will be located in the hygienic clean-room. A pre-inflation system will ensure optimum filling of the FIBCs, which when filled will be moved on a conveyor out of the clean-room and transferred to a pallet transfer conveying system.
