Bizerbas CWP Neptune increases consumer safety Balingen, 24 June 2010 – Bizerba has developed a check-weigher which perishable and packaged food to be weighed and sorted. To be the rising hygiene demands and to reduce the maintenance costs, the technology manufacturer has reduced the number of components to a minimum. The checkweigher CWP Neptune is according to the hygienic design criteria of the European hygienic engineering and design group (EHEDG) ergonomically designed, that it offers little space bacteria. The system requires neither drive nor pulleys because she used only a single conveyor belt as well as a motor. The belt is the widest part of the plant.
Fall product residue from tape, so they can get to another part of the machine, nor back into the product stream. By the new construction, cleaning cycles kept short, reduces to a minimum the maintenance costs due to less wear parts and secured a high availability. For unpackaged food use the checkweighers most individually driven conveyors. But the transitions from feeding, weighing and conveyor belt can be a hygiene problem: here fall food residue from the conveyor and accumulate in difficult-to-reach parts of the plant. The ball bearing in the drive and idler pulleys of different conveyor belts are also susceptible to penetrating cleaning agent and water. You can be destroyed and also hygienic problems.
We have reduced aware the number of individual components therefore when developing check-weigher”, explains Dieter Conzelmann, Director industry solutions at Bizerba. The checkweigher can with water pressure hygiene-just cleaned and the belt be removed quickly and easily. The load cell is also densely welded. A future field of application the CWP Neptune will arise among the production of bio products. Thanks to the absence of preservatives, the products are there more susceptible for bacterial contamination.
