JS Proputec A/S’s Dutch distributor Inventflow B.V. was contacted by end-user Clazing BV, as they needed to update their processes when transporting chicken carcasses.
Initially the transportation was handled manually and transported in bins - several times, which was a time-consuming process.
The bins took up a lot of space both in the production and in the cooling section.
The process influenced on the safety for the employees, who were handling the bins, and set a higher demand of manually cleaning of the bins to ensure proper hygiene throughout the entire process.
In fact, cleaning was necessary at several spots in the production due to the manually handling.
The solution contained:
Well-installed these advantages are gained:
The product remains in a closed system during transport, limiting hygiene problems.
Less manpower required by automation.
No cooling space required for temporary storage of the carcasses.
Wear-resistant: extremely wear-resistant pump that can handle high-viscosity materials with large solid particles.
energy-efficient way of transport over long distances.
