Fresh Produce Processing Plant

The Best in Food-Grade Processing & Handling Systems

Colin Fairweather, CEO, Facet Engineering

In a recent project for Facet Engineering, a network of conveyer systems was needed for the receiving, washing, sizing, sorting, packing, and conveying of a client’s carrot processing line.

The upgrades and expansion had to accommodate the minimum daily process capacities while ensuring the highest food quality. Prior to manufacturing, the design team created comprehensive computer-generated 3D models of the factory. These models allowed for virtual tours of the facility, allowing the design to be adjusted to precisely fit the client’s requirements.

The facility renovations and plant expansions were installed over the course of 18 months, and consisted of a complete conveyor system that was made of 304 stainless steel, featured food-grade plastic modular conveyer belting, and integrated direct geared motor drive arrangements.

Incline and decline belt conveyers, multi-tiered product packaging stations, carousel conveyers, transfer and discharge chutes, product baths, holding tanks, and other conveyer accessories such as sorting gates and lane splitters were among the conveyers delivered.

The project required customized access gantries, walkways, platforms, and additional specialized support structures made of galvanised steel to be incorporated into the range of machinery supplied.

The project was a huge success thanks to the unique engineering design and production experience as well as close client cooperation.

Facet Engineering created a system that fully complied with the process specifications, and the plant’s output production capacity significantly increased.
