Screw conveyor for food ingredients supplier

18 February 2018

When an ingredients supplier, which provides batters and breaders, seasonings and functional ingredients to the food processing and foodservice industries, needed to replace its existing screw feeder and vibratory feeder it turned to Ajax Equipment for a solution. 

Commenting on project a senior engineering manager at the food ingredients supplier said: “I worked closely with Ajax. We needed to take an old vibrating conveyor out and install an Ajax screw feeder in an 8-hour window. The install went well and the feeder was up and running within the necessary time scale. All the materials for the screw conveyor came with a conformation certificate as required by us and the food industry in general.”

The screw features cut and folded flights to provide mixing as well as transferring biscuit crumb. Close co-operation with the customer helped to ensure the transfer capability and mixing effect within the screw conveyor was optimised. The stainless-steel screw feeder also includes an inspection window to allow monitoring of material condition as well as a hinged cover and polished welds to ensure ease of cleaning.
