Spreading Peanuts on Snack Food Conveyor using Vibratory Feeder

A volumetric vibratory feeder installed over a snack food production line is used to evenly spread peanuts across the width of the conveyor. The peanut pieces are loaded into the feeder supply hopper. The electromagnetic driven vibratory feeder will draw the peanuts out of the hopper at a controlled rate and spread them evenly across the width of the pan. Feed rate is easy adjusted by the controller supplied with the drive with a 1000:1 turndown ratio controlled by the RVS amplitude sensor and feedback loop controller built into the vibratory drive.

Electrostatic Coating System for Cheese Processing Flavoring 1Using an electrostatic coating system can greatly reduce starch powder build-up on cheese processing lines while reducing airborne powder. This will significantly reduce the amount of waste powder during the coating process.

We accurately control the amount of powder (starch) discharged onto the shredded cheese. This feeding system is designed to atomize dry spices, starches, cellulose powders, and other anti-caking agents as they are applied to the shredded cheese rotating in the food coating drum. Located at the discharge of the dosing feeder is a negatively charged electrostatic field to create an electrostatic charge in the powder. This negatively charge field is pointing toward the cheese rotating in the drum. The starch is then attracted to the positively charged cheese rotating in the drum.

Removing Oversized Waste from Dune Sand at West Texas Frac Sand PlantRemoving oversized waste from feed to the wet plant.

The sand (dune sand) deposits being mined for frac sand in the West Texas area commonly has oversize and undesirable objects contained in the feed to the wet plant. These objects can be 1/2” to 3/4” sized caliche or other small aggregate, as well as organic material like roots, leaves, and sticks. The objects are problematic for wash plants and cause contamination issues for the final frac sand products.
