State Of Conveying 2023 Report

Food Conveyor System

The world of food processing is vast, with every product carrying its unique recipe and requirements. From airy croissants to dense granola bars, each product demands different ingredients in varying proportions. That is why a food conveyor system is a necessity that can cater to these diverse needs without compromising on quality or efficiency.

Why Upgrade Your Food Conveyor System

In today’s industrial landscape, the importance of specialized solutions cannot be overstated. Recognizing this, many companies have integrated a custom conveyor belt system tailored to meet specific demands across varied sectors. For those operating large storage facilities, a conveyor belt for warehouse applications is designed to streamline operations and enhance workflow efficiency.

In the realm of food processing, the conveyor belt for food ensures the safe, hygienic, and efficient transport of edible products, maintaining the highest industry standards. Furthermore, for broader manufacturing and heavy-duty applications, an industrial conveyor belt stands out, built robustly to handle challenging environments and heavy loads.

The Benefits of Tubular Drag Conveyors

But when it comes to food processing, Cablevey Conveyors understands all the issues that come with conveying food. Our tubular drag conveyors are designed to handle different baking ingredients delicately, ensuring that they reach their destination in the same condition they started. This is a particularly big issue for mixed ingredients, where maintaining the blend’s integrity is essential.

Gentle Handling for Fragile Ingredients

Certain ingredients used in food processing, such as nuts, for instance, are delicate and can easily break or degrade with aggressive handling. Whether it’s nuts, chocolate chips, or dried fruits, maintaining their shape and texture is crucial for the final product’s quality. Cablevey’s tubular drag conveyors are great for gentle handling, ensuring that these ingredients remain intact throughout their transport.

Ease of Cleaning and Maintenance

In the food industry, hygiene is of utmost importance. The design of our conveyors makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze. With fewer parts to disassemble and a self-cleaning feature, routine maintenance is straightforward and quick. This not only ensures that your conveyor system remains in optimal working condition but also that your ingredients are always transported in a clean and sanitary environment.

Integration with Existing Systems

Every food processing facility is unique with its layout and machinery. Cablevey Conveyors’ flexible design ensures seamless integration with your existing setup. Whether you are upgrading or setting up a new line, our conveyors can be tailored to fit into your production flow with minimal disruption.

State of Conveying Report

An independently commissioned survey report reveals insights into top food processing industry challenges, automation goals and their relation to conveyor problems, preferences and the critical factors involved in purchase decisions.

Positive Outlook for the Baking Industry

According to recent industry surveys, an overwhelming majority of bakers reported a positive outlook for all channels, including retail, food service, and distributorship. However, like other industry professionals, bakers find themselves facing supply chain and labor issues, along with rising prices for raw materials. Tight profit margins necessitate instituting efficiencies, including those in transporting baking ingredients within production facilities. Baking ingredients present the operator with a broad range of sizes, weights, material types, and specific blend ratios, creating challenges that the right conveyor can help overcome.

Portions and Precision Essential for Baking Ingredients

While a high degree of artistry is involved, baking is essentially a science of exact proportions. Baking processors require precision measurements for mixes and blends to ensure successful product creation for the end user. The Cablevey tubular drag conveyors present a solution to this challenge with an enclosed system that prevents the shifting or separation of ingredients with a range of sizes and weights. Prevent product contamination, eliminate waste, and reduce dust for a cleaner, safer operating environment with a tubular conveyor system.

The Challenges of Conveying Food

Conveying food products within processing and manufacturing facilities poses unique challenges. These challenges stem from the need to maintain food safety, integrity, and quality while ensuring efficient transport. Some of the primary obstacles include the following:

  • Food items can vary greatly in size, shape, and consistency. Conveying delicate raspberries, for instance, requires a vastly different approach than transporting hard grains.
  • Ensuring that food products are not contaminated during the conveying process is paramount. Conveyor systems must be designed to prevent bacterial growth and facilitate easy cleaning.
  • Some food products, like chocolates or dairy items, may melt or degrade if exposed to higher temperatures. Conveyors need to ensure the temperature is maintained within safe parameters.
  • For mixed ingredients, it’s essential to maintain the blend’s consistency throughout the conveying process, ensuring no separation or settling occurs.
  • Efficient conveying systems need to reduce spillage and product loss to ensure maximum yield and profitability.

Understanding and addressing these challenges is crucial for any food processing company aiming to keep consistent quality standards while ensuring optimal production efficiency.
