The material handled is milk powder. As a result of milk drying, the milk powders are skimmed or whole. Milk powder is used in a wide range of applications in partial or total substitution of liquid milk for which they offer certain advantages. The milk powder is intended to produce the following end products: butter, mozzarella, cream powder…
The aim was to empty the big bags and bags in the red zone for a liquidverter feed by pneumatic transfer. The main constraint was to respect the HACCP system, which is a method of controlling the safety of food.
The solution proposed by PALAMATIC PROCESS is a system for emptying big bags and bags fitted with a bag compactor. The powder is then fed to a vibrating screen to remove any foreign objects and is sucked by pneumatic transfer to a cyclone which is used to feed the liquidverter (powder moistener).
For the discharging of bags (25 kg) and big bags (1000 kg)
DUOPAL equipment is intended for the manual opening of all types of bags and big bags on the same point of unloading. The operator deposits the bag on a shelf and places it on the screen placed above the powder discharge hopper. It can then proceed to the opening of bag and its emptying. This type of station offers great flexibility as to the size of the big bags and bags used. Standard stations can empty big bags with a height up to 2,200 mm. Moreover, it allows the deconditioning of big bags and bags in an ergonomic way and allows the use of an electric hoist. Dust emissions are minimized by the installation of an effective containment system (dust skirt, containment tube, reservation for dedusting) and the integration of an ATEX dust collector which allows the area to be declassified. A bag compactor has been integrated. After the emptying operation, the operator evacuates the empty bag in the compactor that reduces the volume of waste and eliminates the residual dust in the workshop to maintain a healthy atmosphere.
Sieving milk powder
A vibrating sieve (GYRATOR) IGSC 900 was suggested. The sieve can be used for direct inline installation in pneumatic conveying pipeline to guarantee a high-quality final product with a flexible and ergonomic feeding. It is used for the protection of machines by eliminating foreign bodies and agglomerates to guarantee the quality of the powder. It guarantees hygiene and process safety. By design, the vibrating screen does not have any retention zone. The flange assembly ensures high-quality assembly and disassembly.
For the conveying of the treated material
The version proposed by PALAMATIC PROCESS was the VFlow05®. It is a system of conveying by continuous suction to respect the characteristics of the powders and granules. This equipment is suitable for difficult materials with zero retention and does not degrade the material. It also helps to maintain a healthy and dust-free atmosphere.
