Innovative Elongated Rotary Valve With Special Rotor & Speed Control – Helping our customers to become more profitable

Multi-national food and drink company set to save US$ millions

Industry: Food Processing

The problem:

  • Under filling sachets (which cannot be sold). Recovering product was expensive and increased contamination risk.

The requirement:

  • Reduce the variation in sachet weight.

The solution:

  • Create a small bore, long inlet rotary valve with a hygienic scalloped pocket rotor (also easily removed for cleaning purposes).

The result:

  • Accurate feeding and filling of sachets, reducing segregation and a greater consistency in the particle distribution, which gave less variation in taste of the reconstituted beverage.

Working in collaboration, creating tailored solutions, engineering process savings and efficiencies.
