Quality assurance for the dairy industry
If you are in charge of managing process systems you have to look for and trust your instincts to find the right person and resource to solve every situation. This was the challenge for the production manager at a global dairy company when tasked with ensuring that no miniscule particles of metallic foreign matter find their way into their premium dairy powder products. He turned to Aurora for the solution.
“We had to look at several proposals but Aurora had the most innovative solution to our problem,” says the production manager.
The answer involved installing a very powerful high-performance magnet assembly into the critically hygienic process before the dairy powder was packed and dispatched.
Aurora had to undertake extensive research and trialling to find a solution that met the stringent performance, hygiene and health and safety standards that the plant demanded. The resulting Force10 Gravity Grate ticked all the boxes and is performing very well in a demanding environment. The unit includes a revolutionary ‘express-clean’ mechanism that enables rapid, efficient and safe cleaning and sample collection.
Aurora’s process engineers had to work through a raft of technical considerations to ensure the magnetic separator reliably extracted and retained any foreign matter while maintaining process stability and not adversely effecting product f low or packing rates.
The production manager was impressed by the depth of engineering knowledge shown by Aurora, not to mention showing a constant interest in researching further at every new challenge
“Alterations in time and budget are a regular feature of our work,” he says. “And the project involved a very difficult application and was experimental but throughout the process we found Aurora to be very professional and excellent to work with.”
