Escaping the Silo Mentality, a recent article by Dan Malovany for Baking & Snack magazine, was an honor to have Camcorp, a manufacturer of high-performing pneumatic conveying and air pollution control equipment, contribute to.
Tom Leach, Camcorp National Sales Manager, Pneumatic Conveying Systems, provided insights as to what trends and safety concerns his baker customers are seeing with the pandemic and the increased demand for baked goods. He said some bakers are concerned that their ingredient handling systems are not in compliance with the latest OSHA regulations when it comes to explosion prevention and mitigation.
The article acknowledges that short-term modifications to a current system can be more cost-efficient than a complete replacement, particularly when demand is so high and bakers can’t afford to shutdown a line or the capital expense involved. Tom suggests in the Baking & Snack article that there are some modifications that can be made to a current system to increase capacity requirements, such as adding a bulk bag unloader.
For bakers looking to automate manual processes that increase capacity requirements can contact Tom Leach and his pneumatic conveying system team to discuss their application. They can also provide assistance and recommendations to make sure your airlocks, air disks, and blowers are performing efficiently.
Our diverse product offering for bakers starts with truck or rail unloading, storage, pneumatic conveying, discharge devices, scaling, weighing, and batching. And since Camcorp also designs dust collection systems to application requirements, baking and snack plant managers and engineers don’t need to juggle several equipment suppliers.
