Crumb Handling System

When a food manufacturing firm in Sydney had a requirement to feed bulk crumbs mixed with oils out of pallecons and into a process line, they knew they had a challenge on their hands.

The product compacts under its own weight causing it to bridge and rat hole, making it hard to deliver into conveyors.

Fresco Systems was able to prove through a series of product trials they had ability to work with the product. Fresco then designed and quoted a system that would allow the client to reduce the physical handling of the product while maintaining a continuous throughput, thus both reducing costs and improving productivity. The system provided is completely unmanned except for the loading and unloading of the bulk materials.

Fresco Systems design philosophy makes it a natural choice for this type of application – where ergonomics, safety and productivity go hand in hand. For this application it was imperative that all contact materials were manufactured to the highest standard from 316 S/S and incorporating full safety guarding and interlocks to a category 3 level.

The custom designed solution incorporates a hydraulic bin tipper, with a graduated tipping angle to allow an even flow of product through a mesh into the charging hopper. The hopper was specifically designed with an agitator and fluidisers to negate any chance of bridging or flow issues. This then feeds a charging adaptor for the flexible conveyor, which is tuned via a VSD to match the downstream flow requirements.

This complete system had to fit within tight space requirements meeting site specific protocols around operator access to controls and forklift loading of bulk materials.

Fresco systems is the obvious choice when the requirements are for anything that requires thinking outside of the square, with a team of specialist engineers they are able to customise the solutions to cost effectively meet or exceed the clients expectations.

Dust Free Bulk Bag Unloading

The use of flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBC’s) or bulk bags as they are more commonly referred to have many benefits for the transportation and storage of raw materials such as powders and granules.

Fresco Systems have designed a solution for the safe discharging of bulk bags in a clean, dust free environment. This improves production efficiency and eliminates housekeeping issues caused through lesser processes.

Dust Free Bulk Bags are loaded in to the bulk bag unloader by forklift or electrical hoist and trolley. The bags are supported on the massage plates which protect the operator and through agitation will dislodge materials which may have compacted during storage or transport. The spout of the bulk bag is clamped in Fresco’s unique single handed spout clamp providing a dust tight seal that won’t leak or release during the discharge cycle.

As product discharges from the bulk bag into the process below displaced air vents to the integral or central dust collection system. This creates an air curtain at the spout of the bulk bag and a vacuum within the empty bulk bag collapsing the bulk bag so when remove from the bulk bag unloader it can be disposed of without bellowing dust and air into the environment as the operator folds the bag for disposal or recycling.

All Fresco systems bulk bag unloaders are independently load tested and certified as per AS/NZ 1418.

Fresco Systems designs, manufactures and install process system in-house providing a great deal of flexibility with adapting their standard designs to meet each customer’s specific requirements. Fresco Systems can change materials of construction, finishes, heights etc and adapt the discharge of the bulk bag unloader allowing materials from the bulk bag to be directly discharged in to packing machines, flexible or pneumatic conveyors, hoppers etc.
