Spee-Dee® To Unveil Sanitary Servo Drive Auger Filler At Pack Expo Las Vegas

sanitarySturtevant, Wis. — James P. Navin, President of Spee-Dee® Packaging Machinery, Inc., announced that the company will debut the Sanitary Servo Drive Auger Filler at Booth C-1327 during this year’s Pack Expo Las Vegas, October 5 – October 7, 2009, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. “This innovative filler was engineered by our team to meet demanding USDA and 3A Dairy design requirements. These requirements provide manufacturers with a safe, accurate and highly efficient method to fill a variety of products,” he revealed.

Timm Johnson, Vice President, Sales/Marketing, explained that the 3A standards were originally developed for dry milk products and associated ingredients. However, a growing number of manufacturers within the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries are seeking equipment that conforms to these rigorous criteria, which are designed to protect product against bacteria, metal and other foreign contaminants.

“In the development of this system, our overriding objective was to prevent product corruption from outside sources by stopping contaminants from coming into contact with the material being filled. In addition, we focused on eliminating all cracks and crevices that are typically hard to clean in traditional auger fillers. As a result, all of the mechanical connections are outside the product contact area of the Sanitary Servo Drive. All surfaces of the auger feeder under or adjacent to the driving mechanism are readily accessible and the agitator blade and auger drive shaft may be efficiently removed for inspection and cleaning,” Johnson explained.

“All product contact surfaces are made from stainless steel for easy maintenance and to resist corrosion. In addition, all permanent joints in metal product contact surfaces are continuously welded, polished and free of imperfections. No threads or fasteners are permitted in any portion of the system that is in contact with the product being filled,” he concluded.
