Kecol Pumping Case Studies

Case Study

Cereal Filler from Kecol

 

A major breakfast cereal manufacturer needed to increase production of a new jam filled product.

The Issue
Existing methods of emptying jam containers into the production system were too slow and messy, with difficulties in handling the required volumes of jam with the existing 200 litre drums.

The Solution
Kecol designed and built two ‘Megaprime’ pneumatic drum emptying pump systems capable of transferring viscous jam from 1 tonne bulk containers at up to 60 kgs per minute. A changeover panel was also supplied to allow uninterrupted supply of jam to the line.

The Outcome
Production rates and product quality have improved with a reduction in wastage and improvements in factory safety due to reduction in drum handling.

Case Study

New Pharmaceutical Cream

 

A major pharmaceutical company needed to transfer four new creams, of various viscosity, from holding vessels to a pressurised chimney of a filling machine.

The Issue
The existing pumping equipment would not handle the more viscous creams and fill weights were not consistent. Also, there were health & safety concerns regarding the use of 350 litre capacity conical holding vessels with operators having to manually scrape residual deposits of product from the vessels.

The Solution
Working closely with the customer, Kecol designed a system based around the Series H800 Maxiprime, which would accommodate the larger 300 litre drums. The system included a full polycarbonate/stainless steel guard enclosure, a drum girdle and jacking castors. Kecol also supplied 350 litre pharmaceutical quality drums and drum bogeys.

The Outcome
Production rates and product quality have improved with a reduction in wastage and improvements in factory safety due to reduction in drum handling.
