05 Dec Bread Manufacturing
A large Western Canadian bakery plant was experiencing challenges conveying their sticky dough product on a combination vertical / horizontal application. These dough belts were generating excessive amounts of carry-back material that stuck to the covers of the belt on the return after the discharge point. This build-up resulted in product falling on to the plant floor and created challenges with manually cleaning the belt as well as other maintenance, safety, and hygiene concerns.
Belterra recommended an aggressive food grade primary cleaner with nylon blades. Carry-back was virtually eliminated resulting in a cleaner, more effective process with significant savings in both labor (previously spent on manually cleaning the belt) and material that is now properly discharged and used in production instead of falling on the plant floor and going into waste. Additional piece of mind is now given to plant maintenance in knowing that the possibility of belt damage due to excessive product buildup and tracking issues has been eliminated.
