APPLY SUCTION UNIT APPLIED TO AN AUTOMATIC PACKAGING MACHINE: IT SOLVES TWO PROBLEMS IN ONE!

This morning a suction unit left our Apply warehouse: it was directed to a well-known Italian brand of automatic machines, to complement a food processing line. Let’s see how…

 

 

This object has a dual function:

  • creating a vacuum in the lower part of some perforated conveyors: this way the product, in our case industrial sandwich bread which is taken to the packaging station, stays still on the same belt, avoiding waste of product which could fall, become contaminated or damaged and as well facilitates the final packaging process
  • suctioning any fragments, crumbs, flour from the belt, allows the product to arrive at the packaging station in the best possible conditions of cleanliness and hygiene

A Novates filter has been added to the suction unit to prevent these residues from entering and damaging the application. Filter cleaning is done manually.

Other technical details

  • flow rate up to 1200 mc/h
  • vacuum reached -300 mbar
  • installed power 12,5 Kw
