Gemini/KB Systems recently installed a new outdoor ingredient handling system for a longtime customer and friend who just opened a new production facility. The system included two outdoor 110,000 lbs. flour storage silos to store two different types of flour as well as three 5000 lbs. day bins to store three minor ingredients
Minor Ingredient system
- Reduced manual handling labor costs associated with transferring pallets of ingredients from the stock area to the production area.
- Eliminated cleaning costs associated with nuisance dust costs as a result of opening and dumping bags of ingredients in the production areas.
- Improved batch accuracy of delivered ingredients by eliminating human error.
- Ability to accurately weigh multiple ingredients in one weigh hopper prior to discharging into a mixer increases throughput and speeds up the mix cycle.
