Mepaco's Clean Sweep Surge Loader offers a solution that mechanically clears food product between batches on surge loading applications.
In the animation, paddles sweep the sides of the tub and continually push product into the feed screw.
The spin ridge keeps product from barreling, maintaining positive conveyance until the food product is completely unloaded.
This solution reduces food waste and eliminates the need for personnel to have to manually clear product.
The Clean Sweep Surge Loader has been engineered for prepared foods, ground or trim meat products. The design is modified to meet the requirements of the application. Some of the options include different agitator configurations, customized safety grating, load cells, pneumatic covers on the screw conveyor discharge and electropolished food contact surfaces.
Mepaco engineers a solution for metering cooked product to an elevated position while continuously reducing product temperature. This screw conveyor system is equipped with CO2 snow horns and exhaust and can regulate the flow to maintain optimum displacement and temperature control. Having the ability to remove energy during product transfer helps to increase production efficiencies.
Mepaco screw conveyors and surge loaders are built to handle various applications. Both horizontal and inclined screw assemblies are available from a 4” to 48” diameter and can be designed with full, 1/3, 1/2 or variable pitch auger configurations.
Consistent with all Mepaco equipment, our screws and surge loaders adhere to the stringent sanitary design and safety design principles.
