Dairy conveyor

Dairy: the essential ingredient

Meeting the challenges of milk powder products handling

Because dairy powders are used in so many food and beverage recipes all over the world, they require hygienic conditions and industrial-grade performance. Atmospheric changes can lead to increased moisture which promotes caking and clumping, softening, and compaction — and they can all lead to product degradation. Milk powders are known to leave product build-up in conveying equipment which reduces availability and increases cleaning time. Dust is also a concern, not least because it can lead to an explosion.

The aero-mechanical method of conveying (AMC) using FloDisc® Technology is a gentle, rapid and safe way to handle bulk dairy powder products. Floveyor engineered the fully enclosed design to prevent the impact of moisture and dust while preserving the integrity of your materials. It makes Floveyor the ideal choice for a dairy conveyor for the safe, bulk material handling of milk powders at high throughputs.
