Our facility can mix product in a controlled environment at the rate of 900 liters per batch.
The batching process begins with a precise and accurate measurement of each ingredient following governmental regulations consistent with current “Good Manufacturing Practices”. Internal procedures detail the weighing steps and provide audits for quality assurance. Two scales allow processing of material from a fraction of a KG up to 500KG. A hard copy record of all measurements is obtained by computer interfaced printouts.
Two jacketed mixers control temperature batching between 75ºF and 175ºF. A vacuum system allows the manufacturing of viscous materials while eliminating air bubble incorporation. The smaller mixer holds 70 liters which is ideal for pre-mixes and pilot batching. The larger mixer holds 900 liters and can mix dry powders and liquids.
All contact surfaces of mixers and holding tanks are stainless steel. The holding tanks contain an internal air pressure mechanism which allows for capture of product so it is packaged rather than wasted.
New packaging equipment dedicated for either tubes or bottles are available. Both are free standing to allow for adaptation of end product design. All contact parts are stainless steel and the hoppers are temperature controlled for use with viscous materials.
A semiautomatic carton machine allows for efficient mechanized effort, but with variable speed one to several items may be dropped into the package. The finished carton is the “tuck” variety.
