AJAX Screw Conveyor For Food Application
Solids handling specialist, Ajax Equipment, has supplied a global food ingredients supplier with a screw conveyor to replace an existing screw feeder and vibratory feeder. The food ingredients supplier provides batters and bread coating, seasonings and functional ingredients to the food processing and foodservice industries.
The screw features cut and folded flights to provide mixing as well as transferring biscuit crumb. Close co-operation with the customer was utilised to optimise the transfer capability and mixing effect within the screw conveyor. The stainless steel screw feeder also includes an inspection window to allow monitoring of material condition as well as a hinged cover and polished welds to ensure ease of cleaning.
Commenting on the screw conveyor a Senior Engineering Manager for the food ingredients supplier said “I worked very closely with Ajax. We needed to take an old vibrating conveyor out and install the new Ajax screw feeder in an 8 hour window. The install went very well and the feeder was up and running within the time scale. The quality and build of Ajax’s screw feeder is excellent; all the materials came with a conformation certificate as required by us and the food industry in general. Overall, a very good piece of equipment and would recommend to anyone who wants a quality, well-built product.”
“Ajax has almost 50 years of experience handling food products. Our equipment can be customised to the material, ensuring consistent product quality as well as to include hygienic finishes, maintain material temperature and clean-in-place” said Ajax technical director Eddie McGee.
