The advantages of Super-Flash Reliable

Thanks to the WRunfile engine, the Super-Flash applications can count on a high level of safety and operating continuity.

Compatible

Super-Flash maintains its compatibility over time. It is always possible to update an application from an old to a new version without any problems.

Economical

Thanks to the Runtime sales formula, Super-Flash can be downloaded free of charge, directly from this site in the FreeDownload section.

Simple

Super-Flash is user-friendly even for those who do not know any programming languages.

Flexible

Super-Flash is versatile and suitable for creating applications for most industrial sectors and for highly specific spheres, such as home automation, building automation, infrastructures and services.

Powerful

Thanks to MicroC, the ingenious C language compiler included in the supervisor package, the already numerous potentials of Super-Flash go even further.

The drying is produced by a stream of air passing

According to the principle of operation and to products treated we can distinguish the following “families” of dryers. Tunnel dryers model LIBECCIO and GHIBLI The process performed in the tunnel dryer is the closest system to the natural sun drying. Material to be dried is placed on trays and closed into an insulated “room” with controlled air flow and temperature. Trays can be fixed or, usually, resting on wheeled carts. The drying time ranges from 6 to 48 hours according to the product. Size of the machine is defined by the useful drying surface and varies from 10 to 860 m2. Capacity depends on the product that can be loaded at a rate of 5-20 Kg per square meter. Substances to eliminate pests and melds can be added to the air flow. This kind of dryers is used for fruit and vegetables. Little and sophisticated models are

Some materials are sensible to the temperature. Such kind of materials can be dried with hot air but reducing the time of treatment to few minutes or seconds. In the “flash” technique the air flow carries and dries the product in a single and quick passage. In particular the turboflash realizes a swirl of hot air that lift and dry the product (usually dust or little crystals, like flour or sugar, but in some circumstances also liquids). Constructively the TSF looks similar to TS family using the same patented drying tray to separate the inlet air chamber to the drying chamber. Difference is the speed of the process and the extraction system of exhaust air that allow adjusting the residence time of dust inside the dryer.

A system to overcome the problem is to design a flexible and versatile plant in which a number of key equipment are optimized to process various types of raw material (typical examples are the heat exchange equipment, the aseptic filler, the washing / sorting lines etc.) and to include dedicated machines to process specific raw material. The use of dedicated machines is essential in order to maximize the yield and the quality of the obtained juice. This fact is particularly true in the case of tropical fruits where only dedicated machines for pineapple,

Sorter for whole tomato, potato, fruit and vegetables This machine is capable of sorting tomatoes according to desired color. Depending on the application, it can reject either product of incorrect color or any foreign bodies from the product stream. The range of application is very wide; from tomatoes in general to peeled tomato, and to red peppers. This family of sorters includes both single vision systems, that inspect the product on the upper part, and double vision systems that inspect the product on both the upper and lower part. Each vision unit is equipped with a brush cleaning system for the periodic cleaning of the optical sections. The belt conveyor moves the product flow through the optical inspection system and to the ejecting unit. The exclusive electro-pneumatic ejection system with “fingers” has proven to be the most effective for average dimensioned product, such as industrial tomatoes. For products of smaller dimension, such as small tomatoes (“cherry”) and red pepper, the ejection is carried out by means of an air jet.

In Bocholt, the Fiege Group headquartered in Greven, North Rhine-Westphalia, stores branded spirits for distilleries. Before being dispatched, these products are placed on a pallet and packaged in protective film. Since conventional pallet wrapping systems failed to satisfy increasing requirements, the logistics provider needed to replace the legacy wrapping system with a new end-of-line packaging system. The end-of-line packaging system would need to package

palletised load units of different heights and contours to eliminate presorting, film changes and unnecessary film consumption. Furthermore, customer surveys showed that the pallet base should be free of film, that the film had to protect the load during transport and against theft, and that it had to be transparent enough to ensure accurate barcode reading. For this reason, shrink hooding was dismissed as a potential packaging solution, as the shrink hood covers the pallet base and becomes milky in appearance due to the shrinking process. In addition, available wrapping technologies fell short of Fiege’s requirements, as traditional stretch wrap-

levels: economics, ecology and social responsibility. The BSI is a points system that records the sustainability of products with regard to these three levels. “Economic performance, market presence, financial chances and risks are known parameters. Our products will only become economically sustainable, when we tailor them and the corresponding production processes to long-term customer use,” says Dr. Beumer. Previously, the total cost of ownership (TCO) was the focus of business activities. Sustainability was defined solely from the ecological perspective. “For us, it is about incorporating ecological social aspects. Therefore, we follow a total value of ownership (TVO) approach. That means we see each product as a whole, not just the costs.”

With the BEUMER Sustainability Index, BEUMER has introduced a standardised validation system. Each of the three areas is evaluated in five categories with up to five points. The sum is entered in the respective circle in a clock-wise direction. The individual values are added up for the total score.

Aiming for the top To evaluate sustainability with the BSI, each of the three levels is divided into five categories. For example, this includes “Efficiency and Effectiveness”, “Service Life”, “Production-Related Resource Consumption” and “Training and Education Standards”. These categories are evaluated with up to five points.

Knowing that multihead weighing could transform this situation, Starke Ayres looked into the available options and chose an Ishida CCW-M-214W-S/005SS. Known as the ‘Lilliput’ because of its small size (it has a 650mm x 650mm footprint and 50cc (0.05 litre) hoppers), it is designed to handle very small target weights with great accuracy and speed. The Ishida Lilliput at Starke Ayres has brought giveaway down to just 2%, a reduction of 60%. This means that for every 35 packs or so, a given batch of seed will yield one extra pack. Automatic weighing on the Ishida achieves this while practically eliminating the possibility of any underweight packs

ing could never accomplish with such a low level of

reaching the grower, something that manual weigh-

giveaway. Seed is delivered to the top of the Ishida using a vacuum system. It passes through the weigher driven by gravity with the assistance of a powerful vibratory system. To prevent air currents from interfering with the process, the entire machine is enclosed in a transparent case. At the outlet of the discharge chute of the Ishida, weighed product falls into a bagmaker. The filled and sealed bags are bundled and palleted. With manual weighing, the packing process ran at between 15 and 20 packs per minute. The Ishida has increased this by well over 250%, with a typical speed of 52 packs per minute. Apart from the primary benefit of consistent pack weights, the new multihead has speeded up distribution and increased capacity while markedly reducing labour costs. Starke Ayres also believes it benefited from the services surrounding the weigher. “The after sales support and training given by Ishida was outstanding,’’ says Tewie Pretorius, Factory Manager at the company’s vegetable seed packing plant.

NEW PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE HELPS MINIMIZING POWER CONSUMPTION AND IMPROVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS FOR WIND TURBINES

MIWE PRESENTED SYSTEM SOLUTIONS AND IMPORTANT INNOVATIONS AT IBA 2012 Baking expertise has many faces

T

hose who produce, process and sell baked products in the modern market face a wide variety of organizational forms, process sequences, logis-

tics concepts and technologies to choose from. Even on its own, the process landscape in baking is extremely sophisticated and complex. This is one side of “Backing expertise has many faces”, the MIWE motto for IBA 2012. Nevertheless, all modern forms of baking have two things in common: dough, a living raw material, and second, an evident sequence of temperature and moisture profiles (i.e. an air-conditioning sequence) as the core process of manufacturing baked products. MIWE sees itself as an expert partner for implementing and interlinking precisely these air conditioning-controlled baking processes, all the way from production to the shop counter. Whatever a baker decides, whatever section of the process landscape and whatever technology they choose, they can rely on MIWE for expert advice and exactly the right equipment. This is the other side of “Baking expertise has many faces”. MIWE covers the whole spectrum of technologies, leaving every path open to customers, whether they choose flue gas or thermal oil, wagon, deck or continuous ovens, or rolling production or a line concept. The same goes for the proofing process and of course though with slightly different framework conditions for in-store baking. This means that because of our

familiarity with the context and options, MIWE is able to develop high-quality, custom, system solutions that

ing, which we offer for all sizes of bakehouse and for batch and line-based production concepts.

At

MIWE a team of experts from very different professions – from master bakers and dough technologists, developers, engineers and system constructors to refrigeration, power and service technicians – work closely together to offer customers customized system solutions that provide the best throughput, high availability and reliably high-quality baked goods in the most efficient way possible. At IBA 2012 the system that exemplifies this concept clearly stands out from the other models: A loading unit with the MIWE athlet XXL and the MIWE ideal M multiple-deck baking oven, which is completely flexible and supports a large variety of products, and can be expanded at any time later on as needed.

MIWE Smart engineering – Perfectly and precisely integrated production solutions To develop a logical production concept based on the baked products a customer wants to produce and the existing spatial geometry, the requirements of dough technology, system engineering and operational organization must be balanced and considered in a smart concept. That applies all the more the higher the throughput, the more ambitious the degree of automation, the more complex the workflows which must be controlled.

saves energy in real baking situations, but also how much. The focus on energy efficiency was and remains a logical step considering the idea behind MIWE. When we enable our customers to produce better baked products with our systems, to meet their environmental requirements and reduce their energy costs, then we’re achieving what we set out to do: making baking easier. And to help our customers become better businesses. MIWE energy is based on several pillars. The most important include making systems that are inherently economical, which means energy-efficient (more on this in the next section), and heat recovery and waste heat usage systems developed specifically for the needs of the bakehouse which are integrated into heat-sharing systems. All of the heat recovery Every oven in the MIWE ideal M can

SOME THINK OPTIMAL LOAD STABILITY COSTS MORE. WE THINK DIFFERENT. At BEUMER we have a reputation for making things a little different. Take the BEUMER stretch hood® transport packaging system. In a sector where energy-intensive shrink hooding or stretch wrapping is the norm, the stretch hood method represents the state-of-the-art sustainable alternative. The result: better load stability, higher throughput and environmental protection, up to 10 times less film consumption and 90% energy savings. For more information, visit www.beumergroup.com
