Floveyor tanker loader perfect for bulk sugar transfer

Winning a contract is always cause for celebration. Using the opportunity to transform how you deliver your service is an added bonus. That’s exactly what happened when a West Australian transport company won a supply chain management contract for a global drinks manufacturer.

The contract called for an economical, clean, quiet conveyor and rapid decanting of 25 kg bulk bags of sugar into road tankers. They also wanted to run with minimal operator intervention and needed a mobile unit to free warehouse space. The company knew it was time to replace their pneumatic system with better powder handling.

F5 Floveyor for bulk material handling of sugar

The F5 Floveyor proved to be the perfect choice for the food and beverage application due to:

  • Light, modular design
  • 5 kw motor
  • High throughputs at a range of angles.

Additional features with the AMC conveyor, included:

  • tanker loading attachment
  • built-in venting
  • mobile skid.

Process line technology maintains flow of hygroscopic materials

The next challenge was directly related to sugar conveying. Floveyor addressed this problem in two ways.

  • Safety grid to stop or break sugar lumps formed during transit.
  • A lump breaker was retrofitted to condition the sugar prior to filling the road tankers.

Scaling bulk sugar handling with Floveyor tanker loader technology

The Floveyor adaptor inlet let the transport company feed sugar into the lump breaker to move sugar at high speeds between bulk bags or sea containers and road tankers.
