Preventing plugs in food processing

Consequences of chute blockages in the food industry include disrupted operations and significant losses in production, labor, and reputation. BinMaster’s Flow Detect, which is a mass flow detector; as well as capacitance probes, rotaries, and vibrating probes, to monitor bulk material flow, or no flow conditions.

German Engineering Federation statistics say that 75% of respondents in the industry faced chute blockages, resulting in a costly average downtime of six hours at $250,000 per incident. EHS Today underscores the link between manufacturing accidents and poorly maintained machinery, urging the food production sector to adopt preventive measures through advanced chute detection technologies and meticulous design strategies.

Plugged chutes design and monitor

Chutes are used to control the direction of the material, flow stream, spillage, dust and environmental pollution, production degradation, retard or control flow, and surge control. 

Cost is a factor for designing a bulk material handling system to accommodate different materials, according to Rich Tavis, BinMaster Representative, Southeast Region.

“I work with a company that purchased an agricultural facility and used it for minerals processing,” Tavis said. “They don’t want to invest in new silos, conveyors, and chutes, so they adapt and utilize sensors to monitor bulk material flow.”

High-tech sensors indicate flow and no-flow material conditions to alert operators before, or shortly after, a plug occurs.
