Batching System at Bendix FMP Group (Australia) Pty Ltd in Ballarat
Bulk powders are vacuum transferred via a Bulk Bag Discharger into fourteen storage silos.
Fibrous products are dumped into 300 litre Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC’s) then automatically transferred to the mezzanine floor for loading of the Fibre storage silos.
Heavy fibrous products like steel & copper filings are loaded into custom made stainless steel IBC’s and loaded into five agitated bunkers which consist of a vertical mixer with special ribbon design to keep the product moving to prevent binding. Since designing this agitated surge bin Lynchborough-GPM has implemented this into other systems for Cadbury & Mars on difficult products.
Product is then weighed out of the silos into a tub located on a travelling weigh trolley. The trolley then returns home to await pickup by the robot to then dump each product into one of three agitated batch bins.
Once entire recipe has been placed into the batch bins the mix is then vacuum transferred to the mixing building into any one of six mixer loading units.
Once entire mix has arrived at the mixer loading unit hand add products can be tipped into the unit via the sack tip door on each mixer
