Baby Food Production Vertical Blending Line with Four Levels
An key player in the baby food business chose J-Tec for the execution of a gravity designed blending installation in one of their production plants in Indonesia.
The vertical blending tower mainly consists of four different levels: bag discharging level, blending level, sieving/magnet level and packaging level. On the bag discharging level different ingredients are delivered in small bags and are pre-weighed.
The bags are dumped into two separate bag dumping units. One dedicated for discharging the main ingredients and one one dedicated for handling the minor ingredients. Before the ingredients are able to enter the production, a procedure requires the operator to scan every bag.
The heart of the production process is located at the blending level. In order to attain a perfect homogeneous mixture a double shaft paddle mixer is installed. The blender is equipped with a weighing system that verifies if the discharged amount is correct
