Snacking more than an occasional treat
Consumers have a case of the munchies, snacking more today than at any other point in history. According to an IRI Research report, an increasing number of younger adults consume five or more snacks daily, with the average U.S. adult eating 2.7 snacks per day. Millennials are the driving force behind snack mixes and blends, which can contain a variety of fragile components, such as pretzels or chips. The more variety the better, including different sizes and shapes from twists and rounds to squares, nuggets, and pieces. Each shape or component needs to maintain its proper form and pre-determined blend ratio in the proper proportions in the final snack food package.
Tubular conveying preserves delicate snack components
Convey delicate snack foods and components with confidence for less product waste and loss. Whether sold independently or as part of a mix, snack components and foods require a combination of containment and gentle conveyance to avoid the breakage of delicate elements. For this, a tubular drag conveyor serves as the most practical style conveyance for snack foods. Materials enter the input of the conveying tube and fall into compartments separated by discs attached to a central cable, which glides the materials to the next step of processing or packaging without air or excessive force. The enclosed tubular container with modular compartments separated by the cable’s discs helps preserve proportions in snack blends and mixes while ensuring product integrity. The system is easy to clean and requires less downtime than other systems for changeovers and proper sanitation.
