For Premier Foods it was no longer feasible to maintain the existing ingredient vacuum transfer system due to its age and excessive down time compromising critical production line performance.
Piab’s involvement consisted of completing vacuum conveying trials of the six ingredients at our East Leake facility, witnessed by Premier Foods to vacuum transfer these product ingredients from 1 tonne FIBC bags.
The decision was made to replace the existing complete mechanical pump powered system with a more efficient Piab Premium Conveyor which provided Premier Foods with the following benefits:
- 10-25% transfer rate performance gain
- 50% reduction of maintenance downtime
- 14-36% reduced energy consumption
- A simple maintenance regime
