A sieving machine was required to break down blocks of honeycomb and separate it into five grades.

Grading

The client needed to supply various sized pieces of honeycomb product for confectionery and ice cream manufacture. 

They required a machine to break down blocks of ‘honeycomb’ and separate it into five grades.

A Rota was used to break down the honeycomb confectionery into various sizes and the fines (product discharge) were then transferred to the Sievmaster Multiscreen 1200 grading sieve for further processing.

The Multiscreen divided the product into large to fine groups each being collected within plastic containers. The whole arrangement was supplied with full control and safety system.

 

 

  • Requirement

    The client needed to supply various sized pieces of honeycomb product for confectionery and ice cream manufacture. They required a machine to break down blocks of ‘honeycomb’ and separate it into five grades.

  • Operation

    The product was lifted and tipped directly from EuroBin type containers, fed directly into a grading separator below and then into small containers.

  • Solution

    A Sievmaster Rota 200 centrifugal sifting machine (mounted upon a stainless steel frame) was supplied, along with a lift and tip unit designed to elevate a 200 litre EuroBin of product. A specially made bulk hopper/vibratory feed arrangement was assembled at the inlet to the centrifugal sifter, ensuring a direct flow of product.

    The Rota was used to break down the honeycomb confectionery into various sizes and the fines (product discharge) were then transferred to the Sievmaster Multiscreen 1200 grading sieve for further processing. The Multiscreen divided the product into large to fine groups each being collected within plastic containers. The whole arrangement was supplied with full control and safety system.

  • Results

    The client was able to satisfy the requirement with a standalone system and without the need to obtain equipment from various suppliers. The customer was also able to make use of each size of final product for different clients, even making use of product that was previously thrown away.
