To dry cream cheese jars to enable the effective application of paper labelling (standard) and pressure sensitive wrap-around labelling (future need). Our client required a consistent cost-effective solution, which would be economical to run.
We visited the site, listened to their needs, and supplied two Low Noise Level (LNL) bottle drying units, in-series, to ensure Bega Cheese’s dryness requirements were achieved. The two units were incorporated in an acoustic enclosure to contain the noise and spray. The air delivery devices required needed to target the jar sides, under-cap, and tops of lids.
Three years later, we re-visited the site to help them reconfigure the system to support the introduction of a wrap-around pressure sensitive labelling. Dynamic Engineering Australia (DEA) provided a detailed list of improvements, including an additional equipment list.
Bega enlisted DEA to return to site with the new items and oversee the reconfiguration of the installation, including the fitting of the new equipment.
Bega Cheese now has dry cream cheese jars for labelling. Wastage is now minimal, but also, the possible health risk from bacteria forming around the lid has been completely removed.
They are also able to maintain low running costs, and are a satisfied customer with equipment that is already paying for itself.
