Challenges and Solutions

Dairy plants require sanitary production environments. Powdered milk, whey, casein and baby formula are often batched or blended.


Portability requirements

Product movement can be dangerous and tedious. We offer portable feed bin hoppers that allow you to move your products safely and efficiently.


Fragile Products

Our products use speed control as well as a boxed inlet system that helps deduce impact and prevent a breakdown of the materials.


Limited Floor Space

Not every factory has the same amount of space. Our systems are built to work in compact layouts with specially placed side access filters for convenience.


Dust control

Our systems are equipped with primary and secondary filtration systems, and built with high efficiency PTFE filter media that ensure a dust-free environment.

Customize your machinery

  • Custom material inlets. Sanitary inlets,
    boxed inlets and Ferrule/tri-clamp fittings.
  • Under 8 Cubic foot volume limit as safe
    design in view of NFPA Explosion guidelines.

  • Various voltage configurations:
    120v, 220v, 24V, 460v.
  • Batching Scale hopper to hold/dispense desired amount of material by weight or volume, by loss in weight or gain in Weight.
  • Custom design specific to applications.
  • Batch, continuous, or flood fed systems.
