Riggs Autopack of Lancashire, UK has recently installed an automatic depositor line and transfer pumps for Zorba Delicacies Ltd, an established UK manufacturer of chilled dips and deli products. Riggs Autopack is a market leader in filling machines and volumetric depositors as well as transfer pumps and conveyor filling lines.
Three Riggs Autopack twin head automatic depositors were installed to fill 3-portion plastic trays with hummus, salsa and guacamole products. Three Riggs Autopack transfer pumps were also installed to pump the different products from holding tanks into the depositor hoppers to maintain the production process. The machines are working at a rate of 60 packs per minute.
The low level, twin head automatic depositors were designed specifically for single or multi-portion pot/ tub/ tray filling for producers of products such as dips and deli fillers. They provide precise depositing of hot or cold liquid and semi-liquid products such as salsa, guacamole, hummus, dips and sauces.
The horizontal transfer pumps provide damage-free transfer of products and efficiently pump products direct from tote bins, cooking kettles or mixing vessels, and transfer into low or high level hoppers and holding tanks. While ensuring continuous food production, the robust food industry pumps eliminate the need for manual loading of hoppers by using tubs or buckets.
Riggs Autopack also offers depositors that can fill hot and cold liquid, semi-liquid and suspended solid goods including a wide range of ready meal products such as stews, mash potato, casseroles or curries.
