Olympic success leads to robot investment at Speciality Breads
The installation of a second-user robotic system by Pacepacker has revolutionised the palletising of artisan loaves for Speciality Breads. Cutting palletising time in half, the robot is keeping up with the bakery’s daily production of 100,000 individual loaves from its brand new state of the art £3million bakery.

Resistor choppers slow overspeeding fans
Fans don’t normally need a braking resistor and chopper but when they are operating in a closed system, a situation may arise where one fan will over-speed the next and the DC bus voltage on their motor drives will then rise. Here John Mitchell, business development manager of CP Automation, reports on the case of GA Pet Food Partners in Leyland, Lancashire.

Retrofit safety using innovative control valves
The food and beverage industry has embraced automation - partly due to the necessity of reducing production costs, but also to help meet food safety standards and personnel safety legislation. By taking a modular approach to automation, plant owners can gradually introduce new technologies and expand the number of automated processes, in order to maintain productivity and keep up with the latest safety legislation.

HRS Heat Exchangers: Creating a richer biofertiliser
Following the welcome news that the RHI budget is set to treble between now and 2021, Britain’s AD industry is breathing a small sigh of relief. However, succeeding in the AD industry means optimising every single part of the operation. Today’s successful operators understand that maximising the value of the significant volumes of digestate generated from the AD process can be the difference between a project’s success or failure.
