Reliability and Less Leakage Are Key Factors for Ingredient-Handling Equipment
According to a recent article from Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery, customers of ingredient handling equipment are focused on a many factors to reach their optimal formulation, including:
- Food safety
Increasing Reliability and Reducing Product Loss Are Critical
As a provider of fluid sealing solutions, we here at SEPCO are honed in on increasing reliability and reducing leakage for this industry, especially since some plants risk fire hazards and safety if a product leaks too much.
According to Zach Nepa, SEPCO’s Midwest regional manager, “It’s about housekeeping, sanitation and general product loss.”
An Air Seal Is Ideal for Ingredient-Handling Equipment
An air seal has been augmented to include a stabilizing bushing so the shaft will not move more than it should — a leading cause of premature seal failure.
According to what Nepa said in the Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery article, an air seal doesn’t require this feature to operate properly, but it does improve overall equipment reliability and reduces air consumption.
By stopping product leakage and increasing reliability, solutions like this air seal:
- Reduce the time workers spend cleaning up the floors
- Eliminate the risk of contamination
- Decrease the risk of injuries on-site
