Project Objective:

To allow the customer to run a production lines with consistent, accurate flavouring.

Gravimetric Flavouring Systems - Cox & Plant

The Challenge:

To remove inconsistent flavouring of product caused by a traditional volumetric system.  Inconsistent flavouring is a major cause of customer complaints and can lead to the loss of reputation in an instant.

Our Solution:

Loss in Weight feed systems accurately weigh and control the output of variable products either, continuously or as a batch to weight accuracies of ±0.25% to ±1%.

The system allows the line to run normally with the peaks and troughs that are expected from a batch production system with fryers or roasters. It utilises a loss in weight set up to accurate measure product flow per second to ensure the exact percentage of seasoning is applied to the precise weight of product flow.

Results:

Customer complaints reduced to near zero, as consistent product seasoning was achieved by increasing the accuracy of weighing and controlling the output of variable products.

Finally, a solution that works for my production line.
