Interpack 2011: Bizerba presents CWP Neptune checkweigher

20 April 2011

The Bizerba CWP Neptune checkweigher is designed to weigh and sort unpacked and perishable foodstuffs, such as minced meat

It's been designed in compliance with criteria of the European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG) and requires only the use of one single drive belt.

“The belt is the widest part of the system”, explains Dieter Conzelmann, Director of Industry Solutions at Bizerba. “Should parts of the product fall off the belt, they cannot finish up in another part of the machinery or back in the product stream; the weighing cell is also tightly welded”.

The system can be cleaned with pressured water and the drive belt disassembled quickly and easily. “In the unpacked foodstuffs sector,” Conzelmann continues, “our competitors offer checkweighers with single motorised conveyors, so during transitions from feeding belt, weighing belt and discharge belt, there can be hygiene problems.

“In these areas, parts of the foodstuff fall from the belt drive and collect in hard-to-reach parts of the system. Therefore, with the CWP Neptune, we have deliberately reduced the number of single components.”

If nothing else, this reduction in component parts makes the operation of the system more economical for the user. “The system only has one single motor and does not have any driving rollers or deflection rollers.

“Cleaning cycles can therefore be kept short, the operating costs reduced to a minimum thanks to less parts subject to wear and a high level of availability be secured,” says Conzelmann.
