Food & Chemicals Handling

Industrial requirements for handling and conveying foods and fine/speciality chemicals

Contamination-free material transport is paramount in the food industry and for those providing the speciality products that support it, such as excipients, flavours, colourings and other additives. Fine and speciality chemicals for the personal care industry similarly call for hygienic bulk materials handling. The materials conveyed in these sectors may be:

  • Flakes
  • Granules
  • Powders
  • Pellets & Pills

For many products it is crucial to avoid physical degradation during transport.

An important trend is to reduce manual handling, creating a requirement for machines that eliminate manual lifting and carrying. Plant is usually housed inside which means that food and chemical handling equipment is protected from the environment.
