Fragile food

Conveying fragile food? Ask Piab how to!

Date 23/05/2018

Don't go nuts conveying fragile food! In Piab's piFLOW®t your products are in safe hands.

Taby, Sweden – There is no reason why you should put up with crushed candy, bruised nuts, smashed seeds, broken beans or chipped and no-longer-intact nutraceutical tablets and capsules emerging from your conveying system. You simply need a conveyor that is dedicated to handling such fragile goods.

Piab offers precisely that – the piFLOW®t conveyor has been equipped with innovative features that enables it to handle delicate ingredients and food items really gently and safely.

”The trick is to have no sharp edges in the conveyor, and to feed items through a guided entry at a controlled low speed,” explains Jarno Tahvanainen, Vice President of Piab's Material Handling Division.

Suitable for transporting up to four million items per hour, the piFLOW®t conveyor can be used for transporting any fragile goods within a processing plant. For the food industry this enables the safe handling of, for instance, coated sweets, candy, roasted coffee beans, whole nuts, and nutraceutical tablets. Eliminating the use of inadequate standard equipment and alternative, often back-breaking, manual procedures, piFLOW®t will safely transfer ingredients and products between various processing units, such as tablet presses, coating drums, and packaging lines, avoiding all risks of damage.

piFLOW®t is an extension to Piab's popular and high-quality range of piFLOW® conveyors for powder and bulk materials, and is specially developed to meet the stringent demands regarding operational safety and hygiene within the food (piFLOW®f), pharmaceutical (piFLOW®p), and chemical (piFLOW®i) industries.
