INTERPOM INNOVATION TOUR CATEGORY:
ARGUMENTATION ABOUT THE INNOVATIVE CHARACTER
A self-cleaning and disinfecting transport system for frozen food that can transport 1 ton/h to 60 ton/h products over longer and steep sections. The system also ensures good quality by minimizing product breakage thanks to extremely small drop heights of the product at the input and output, and ensures perfect product dispersion on subsequent machines or conveyor systems. This provides a solution to the food industry to ensure hygiene in their processes. The innovative character is provided by working towards the auto-disinfecting and cleaning plant for food through the combination of specific mechanical engineering and cleaning technology.
ADDED VALUE FOR THE USER (IN COMMERCIAL TERMS, USER-FRIENDLINESS ...)
With this, cleaning time can be drastically reduced in a safe automatic manner, which also reduces energy and water consumption. The efficiency of cleaning and disinfection is also significantly increased. This leads in part to an improved competitive position due to the cost savings achieved. Food producers and retailers are dying to be in the media with recalls of their products due to contamination. An automated system that no longer relies on the human "error factor" while being cost-effective and sustainable will certainly be music to your ears.
ADDED VALUE FOR THE FURTHER SUSTAINABILITY AND PROFESSIONALIZATION OF THE POTATO SECTOR
The automatically controlled process leads to complete control of water and chemical consumption. The security of cleaning and disinfection is dramatically increased, allowing the user to confirm their professional appearance. The dream of pressing a button and all machines throughout the production line are cleaned and disinfected in an efficient and sustainable and safe manner can become a reality.
