Kecol: Systems with automatic level controls

07 May 2010

An international snack biscuit manufacturing company in the Czech Republic needed pumping systems for transferring highly viscous jam product and an unusually high viscosity yoghurt cream from 200litre drums to a twin hopper system on a biscuit enveloper

Both product levels needed to be monitored / maintained to ensure maximum productivity with minimum product waste or production down time.

Biscuit Line Equipment
Kecol’s remit was to design & supply 2 off pump systems with ultra sonic level control system for stopping and starting of the Kecol Maxiprime systems – and also design / supply bespoke depositing manifolds to cover the full length of the customers machine hoppers.

The manifolds could be easily adjusted for maintaining optimum product levels at all times. The Ultra Sonic Level control systems were installed on each pump system, which left the operators free time to attend other production duties.

The 2 off stainless steel Maxiprime systems / level controls, delivery hoses and depositing manifolds were installed over a 2 day period without interrupting the already busy production line. The Followerplates on the Maxiprime systems wipe the inside of the customer’s product drums as the product is being pumped to the hopper(s). The High Viscosity Yoghurt is also supplied in an aseptic bag inside 200 Ltr drums – and the Kecol Maxiprime system wipes the inside of the bag – without damaging the bag.

Maximum product return is achieved by transferring the products with minimal waste – whilst maintaining product levels in the hoppers – assuring maximum production runs with minimal down time.
