Starfrost Solution Boosts Soup Company Capacity
A major UK soup company has boosted processing capacity by investing in a custom built, continuous chilling system from British equipment manufacturer
Starfrost.

Starfrost is a global market leader in bespoke freezing and chilling systems for the food processing industry. Starfrost works alongside food manufacturers to develop the best IQF (Individual Quick Freeze) solution, ensuring maximum throughput and low energy costs.

Starfrost has designed and installed a bespoke double drum spiral system at the market-leading soup processor¹s production facility in the East Midlands. The fully automated in-line Helix Spiral Chiller has enabled the soup firm to increase capacity to meet growing demand from major supermarkets.

The soup processor was looking to replace a manual blast chiller with a high capacity in-line system to increase production of fresh soup in pots. Starfrost¹s ability to custom design, build, install and commission a flexible, energy efficient chilling system within a short timescale was key to securing the contract.

Starfrost¹s engineering team custom designed a Double Drum Helix Spiral
Chiller with a processing capacity of 2,700 kg/hr. The Helix Spiral
features a 26inch wide plastic conveyor belt and two rotating stainless steel drums, each with 14 spiraling tiers.

The bespoke Helix Spiral system is designed to process soup in 600g pots, at a rate of 75 pots per minute. The product enters the chiller at a
temperature of +85 degrees Celsius. Each individual pot of soup is then
chilled down to under +5 degrees Celsius.

Starfrost Sales Director Robert Long says: ³Our in-line Helix Spiral Chiller
has streamlined soup production by linking the filling line to the packing
area. It has enabled the processor to boost capacity to meet customer
demand, whilst increasing efficiency by making significant energy and
operational cost savings.

Starfrost¹s Helix Spiral is suitable for freezing and chilling food that
requires medium to long retention times, such as ready meals, poultry,
pizza, potato products, fish, desserts, bakery products and ice-cream. The system is available in site built and compact assembled format, with single drum, double drum and twin belt designs. Available with a range of belt sizes and tier heights, it can process from 500kg/hr, to capacities over 6,000kg/hr.

The Helix Spiral Freezer/Chiller is designed with low maintenance, ease of hygiene and operational efficiency in mind. Its unique vertical or horizontal air circulation system ensures quick and even chilling or
freezing without excessive air speeds that can damage delicate products, while still achieving long running times between defrosts.

Starfrost¹s Helix Spiral is a complete custom built solution, with system
design and components selected to offer maximum performance and flexibility.

Starfrost¹s standard all-stainless steel equipment design includes
framework, fully welded floor, evaporator and enclosure panels for ultimate hygiene. The Helix Spiral features a user-friendly touch screen HMI PLC control panel and optional CIP (Clean in Place) automated sanitising system.

A driving force in food processing worldwide, Starfrost has remained at the forefront of technical innovation for over 30 years. The company¹s
engineering team is dedicated to working alongside processors to develop the best IQF solution, whatever the food product.

What Fruveco Were Looking For In A Weigher
An interview with the top management of Fruveco at its Murcia site reveals that factors influencing purchasing decisions in the fast-moving frozen vegetables market go beyond throughput to include reliability, efficiency and customer service.

Located in south-eastern Spain, in an area that lays claim to the title “Vegetable Garden of Europe”, Fruveco SA has built a strong reputation for the reliable, continuous supply of quality frozen vegetables. The company is Europe’s highest volume supplier of frozen broccoli, for example, and also supplies frozen ready meals and snacks, largely vegetable-based. Over 90% of its output is packed as own-label brands for supermarkets, while 10% is sold to smaller outlets in Germany & Eastern Europe.

A major strength of Fruveco is the ability to supply large volumes, often at short notice.

“If a customer suddenly needs hundreds of tonnes for a special promotion,” says Manager Francisco E. Ramón Juárez, “we can respond very quickly. Because of our generally large volume and the need for fast response, reliability is even more important than speed among the qualities we look for in new equipment.”

Fruveco have a reputation for purchasing the most up-to-date equipment. At their highly efficient factory, vegetables are washed, blanched, quick frozen in one of the company’s five freezer tunnels at -40°C and colour-sorted before entering the packing process.

Over the last few years Fruveco has bought five Ishida 14-head weighers to keep pace with its expanding business. A standard Ishida configuration for frozen vegetables, each one is equipped with a timing hopper and its contact parts, including the 3-litre hoppers, are embossed to reduce product adhesion. The weighers are filling pillow bags at target weights ranging from 300g to 2.5kg.

In the same period, Fruveco also bought a weigher of a similar specification from a competitor of Ishida and has compared the two makes on a number of parameters.
“On speed, they were roughly comparable,” commentsFrancisco Juárez. “However, the Ishidas are consistently more accurate, with giveaway at 1% or less, compared with 2-3% for the other brand.The Ishidas are also more consistent performers, with fewer missed cycles”.

Efficiency is taken very seriously at Fruveco. The company measures line efficiency daily, monthly and yearly.

“For the five lines with Ishida multiheads, efficiency averages 87-90%, and that includes scheduled downtime for cleaning and maintenance” says Francisco Juárez.

“For me, an important factor has been the level of service and support provided by Ishida, which has a major office in this country as well as an excellent distributor, CIMA”concludes Francisco A. Ramón Gómez, CEO of Fruveco.

“Both company and distributor have skilled, qualified people who can get to us quickly, and who take it seriously if there is any threat to our production or our delivery time to our customers. This is not true for the other weigher supplier, where there has been a definite lack of responsiveness. I put this down to a lack of resources here in Spain but, whatever the reason, any problems that have occurred have cost us money.”

Riggs New Filling Line Keeps Tracklements On Track With Expansion
Riggs Autopack has recently completed two projects with their established client The Tracklement Company Ltd.

Tracklements of Malmesbury, Wiltshire, is one of the UK’s leading providers of chutneys, dressings and condiments, which are as good on the side of the plate as they are when used as dips, marinades or as an ingredient in cooking. As part of the company’s on-going investment and expanding production requirements, Riggs Autopack was selected by Tracklements to install a new filling line to accurately dispense a variety of new products and to cope with an increase in demand.

The new line incorporated a fully automatic twin head filling machine with interlock doors, selectable dipping head assembly for container neck entry, and clamps to locate the smallest bottle necks within a millimetre tolerance. The filling machine 200 litre hopper was fitted with an agitation system to keep particulates within dressings in suspension.

All change parts are quickly and easily detachable to allow for rapid cleaning and fast product change overs resulting in minimum down time. Riggs Autopack’s filling machines provide highly accurate and reliable filling with quick strip down and simple cleaning features that require no tools and involve minimal parts. Ideally suited for hot or cold fills, these machines have been used by Tracklements in various forms for nearly 10 years.

The project scope included a 6 metre continuous running conveyor through the filling machine and a new automatic capping machine suitable for twist-off lids (the capping machine was sourced from a third party supplier, integrated and project managed by Riggs Autopack as part of the scheme). The conveyor was employed to effectively transfer tall, thin and therefore relatively unstable containers through the line, before finally being taken off to the labelling machine.

The new line was configured to handle many different shapes and capacity of containers for maximum flexibility of fill. During installation and commissioning, Riggs Autopack worked closely with Tracklements engineering department to optimise the line to meet site working practices to optimise the most efficient production speeds.

Production Manager Malcolm Hudson commented: “I am very happy to have worked with Riggs Autopack to obtain what I believe is the best production line set-up, and very pleased with the partnership between the two companies”.

Future upgrades are also planned to allow for hybrid filling, by introducing a stop-to-fill routine allowing the filling of awkward shaped containers which would otherwise be unstable within a conventional conveyor gating system.

During the time on-site, Tracklements also asked Riggs to look at upgrading an existing Riggs Autopack filling line supplied 6 years earlier. This twin head automatic filling line was used on standard glass jar filling operations and regularly ran at around 32 – 34 jars per minute. Over time, some of the control enclosures and components were in need of attention and the dated pneumatic control logic was at times limiting performance.

Riggs Autopack offered to replace all pneumatic switch gears on the filling machine with electric sensors and upgrade the PLC control to meet current standard routines.

Tracklements placed an order for this work and within four weeks the line had been upgraded. It is now running consistently at rates of 62 – 64 jars per minute on their products.
Malcolm Hudson further commented: “Tracklements is extremely pleased with the upgrade. The near doubling of production capacity on this line is extremely welcome as we strive to meet an expanding client list and order book. Riggs Autopack upgraded the line within 4 weeks and delivered immediate performance benefits with no unplanned loss of production time; we were very impressed.”
