Gemini/KB Systems, Philadelphia, Pa., debuted a new outdoor ingredient handling system that includes two outdoor 110,000-pound flour storage silos to store two different types of flour as well as three 5,000-pound day bins to store three minor ingredients.
· Reduced manual handling labor costs associated with transferring pallets of ingredients from the stock area to the production area.
· Eliminated cleaning costs associated with nuisance dust costs as a result of opening and dumping bags of ingredients in the production areas.
· Improved batch accuracy of delivered ingredients by eliminating human error.
· Ability to accurately weigh multiple ingredients in one weigh hopper prior to discharging into a mixer increases throughput and speeds up the mix cycle.
