Before they even thougt of installing the machinery into the new plant, Spiromatic's engineers spent a lot of time together with Aveve's technical department to get a clear understanding of their volumes, recipe management, production processes, packaging speed,...
Based on their extensive and specific expertise in pre-food processing, including storage, conveying and dosing of all sorts of ingredients in large, industrial applications, Aveve called upon Spiromatic to manage the entire pre-engineering process, design, construction, installation and commissioning of their ambitious solution.
- The new plant is designed with a huge storage capacity needed to continuously feed 4 packaging lines and reaching a daily output of 120 tons of finished goods
- Given the growing gluten intolerance, a seperate gluten-free packaging line was also required
- Nowadays, the range of bread variants is immensely broad, which calls for a lot of different flour mixes and hence, for many recipes, each of them sometimes with a lot of different ingredients
- All these ingredients have different storage and conveying requirements and product safety must be guaranteed at all times.
- 18 silos of 30 tons for white and whole meal flour, Sugar and salt
- 16 bag-dump filled minor ingrediënt silos, to automatically dose into the mixers
- 13 intermediate buffer hoppers of ranging from 6 to 14m3
- 2 central vacuum transport systems to convey ingredients from the silos to 3 mixing installations
- Hygienic bag dumps with integrated safety sifter and mixers with super hygienic design for the gluten-free design
- Security sifters and inline magnets on all ingredient containers
- Centralised dry air generators and landbased blowers on all silos and intermediate buffers
- Automatic samplers on all silos. The silos can be used in production only when the lab has tested and approved the samples
- A fully integrated automation system, allowing Aveve to perfectly control, monitor and trace the ingredient flow, mixing and packaging process.
- Optimal storage and conveying for all ingredients
- Recepe control, with very accurate mixing and dosing
- Product safety
- Traceability thanks to the automation system
