Improved food safety and less waste through worldwide upgrade

Improved food safety and less waste through worldwide upgrade

The best possible food safety and minimum residual waste during the production process. In line with their worldwide standard and with guaranteed quality. That was the wish of an international food manufacturer. Orangeworks accepted the challenge and started the "filter skid" project in the summer of 2018, for which even the factory was partly converted. "This way we work efficiently and we can keep costs down."

Food safety as the highest priority

Orangeworks knows better than anyone that food safety is paramount in producing food. It is vital that only those ingredients end up in the product that belong there. Because if something goes wrong, the consequences can be huge. Theo Beerkens, Project Manager at Orangeworks: “This food manufacturer is constantly evaluating its systems and improving the detection methods. That led to the choice to upgrade the filter systems with a double filter. "

Less residual waste during production

In addition to the best possible food safety, reducing residual waste during the production process is also central to the project. "The definition of residual waste is constantly changing due to worldwide changes in legislation and available recycling routes for waste," says Koen Verstegen, director at Orangeworks. “The most effective strategy to save waste processing costs is therefore to reduce waste during the production process. At Orangeworks we are constantly looking for ways to achieve that. As a result of this project, the process of checking the filters will result in 45% less waste, which means a considerable profit. "

Global upgrade

All over the world, from South America to Australia, the skids of the food manufacturer will be upgraded. In the summer of 2018, Orangeworks started building the new skids, based on a worldwide standard. Theo Beerkens, Project Manager at Orangeworks: “The only changes that are permitted are those resulting from the limitations of the layout of existing factories. For example, we halved the supports of one skid and equipped them with centering tubes, otherwise the skid would not have passed through the passages. In another skid we have turned a few components for better adaption to the layout. We discuss these types of changes in advance with the customer's engineering team in order to secure adherence to their worldwide standard and quality.”

Efficiency and quality

Part of the Orangeworks facility has been specially converted for this assignment to be able to produce the skids in a line-up arrangement. Toon Tap, assisting foreman: “During the production of the first few skids, we looked closely at how to set up the process. By producing in line format and applying our unique way of working, we can keep the costs for this project low and we work very efficiently. That way we can constantly guarantee quality, even with a large project like this,"
