Press release date: July 10, 2012
ROMEOVILLE, Ill - FleetwoodGoldcoWyard's specialized technology group, Fleetwood Process Systems, is reintroducing In-Line Batch Creation, Quasi-Blending Systems and the P-SMART Kit. By combining experience and industry-leading technologies with the CBI Fleetwood Volumix and the historic AMBEC product lines of FullMix and Quasi-Blend, systems can be molded together to create a unique and custom solution while maintaining the integrity of the tried and tested blending concepts.
Quasi-Blend Systems and other in-line batching operations provide clear opportunities for life-cycle savings. Key components to each custom system include the ability for quick and effective change overs, product creation capabilities at the touch of a button, and cross-over-free creation of diet and sugar beverages. With complete reporting of batch ingredients, raw materials are utilized more efficiently. Newer technologies allow for greater utilization of tanks and product creation resources which aide in the decreased line down time due to lack of product.
Tunnel Warmers, Coolers and Pasteurizers can be the heart of a line and a crucial part of 'in-container processing'. Poor maintenance and new products can make these machines very inefficient. Through a series of audits performed by FleetwoodGoldcoWyard's skilled Field Service team, issues common to older tunnels impacting line productivity and product quality have been revealed. Among these concerns are blocked or clogged nozzles, incorrect machine balance, overlapping temperature zones and excessive water usage. The audits also showed areas where there was poor accumulation and belt population, unknown 'in-container' processing and excessive utility usage, all of which contributed to machine failures.
A new tunnel can cost several hundred thousand to millions of dollars. Fleetwood Process System has responded to the industry's demand for a cost effective way to improve tunnel machines of all make with its P-SMART Kit The P-SMART (Process System Modification and Reconfigured Tunnel) Kit can be applied to all tunnel machines and in particular the I&H and Barry-Wehmiller Companies models.
Drawing on FleetwoodGoldoWyard's more than 100 years of experience in tunnel machines, the P-SMART Kit can provide better efficiency of operation, greater visibility of process conditions within the machine and a more efficient use of utilities with a smaller consumption of water and drainage volume. In addition, the P-SMART Kit can create a simpler automation process with a greater range of product capability. The Kit also offers paperless recording of process conditions and utility usage.
