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.”

Aurora Process So­lu­tions pro­vide spe­cial­ist mag­netic sep­a­ra­tors for a large range of in­dus­try with niche ca­pa­bil­ity in the food and di­ary sec­tors. For­eign mat­ter is an ever-in­creas­ing pri­or­ity in the process in­dus­try with an in­creas­ingly savvy con­sumer and rapidly grow­ing de­mand for guar­an­teed prod­uct in­tegrity.
