One of the India's largest Ayurvedic medicine & natural consumer products manufacturer were trying to find out unique & efficient filtering solution for Honey. The company is known all over the world for the quality of Honey they delivered & to stand with their core value of High-Quality Honey, they didn’t want to compromise in installing best in place filtering system
The Production manager after analyzing modern day filtration systems, approached us for the solution.
He explained the current filtration process & the hurdles they were facing.
“As of now we are using old school vintage filter for removing foreign matters like bee part, wax, solid etc. Filter is working on Outside-in principle & it is required to be clean manually after & in between the batches. The manual cleaning influenced production due to frequent down times. Also, there was loss in production time & the filter was not working efficiently.”
After an interactive conversation with Production manager of company & our preliminary assessment, we recommended them to use Sivtek® Self Cleaning Filter.
There were mainly 2 reasons behind suggesting Sivtek® Self Cleaning Filter as solution:
The name itself clarifies that the main advantage of this filter is to clean itself automatically. There is a mechanical piston which moves along the periphery of the trapezoidal shaped basket to remove foreign particles. (Bee part, wax & solid waste)
This in return helped them to lower down the blockages, break downs & helped them to increase production. Now time was not being utilized for cleaning the filter manually as it was being cleaned during the filtration automatically.
Filter Control System:
The Filter Control System allows operator to set the system one time & be free then after. This will allow the operator to adjust the timing of piston and actuator valves.
Due to automatic cleaning & system to set the timing of piston and actuator valves eliminates the need of operators; so, operators can help & get involved in other tasks.
Due to installation of Sivtek® Self Cleaning Filter, the company were able to
- lower down their labour & production cost
- No hinders in production (No production Stoppage) due to self & automatic cleaning system.
- Less involvement of operators enabling them to focus on other work.
