Archimedys™ is extending its loaf flouring range.
Our modular Archimedes’ screw solution has been selected for its loaf flouring installations.
Flouring is an essential step in industrial bakeries prior to baking. How can you easily, evenly and continuously powder flour over large quantities of loaves? Most bakeries use flouring devices composed of two parallel screws in a closed circuit. The flour comes out through small openings. However, problems such as clogging and recurring supply issues require constant maintenance department interventions. Operators have to unclog everything using a hammer. Furthermore, the conveyor steel has difficulty resisting.
To solve this problem, Archimedys™ has extended its range to include mini modules. Using short step supply, operation becomes continuous and no maintenance interventions are needed any more.
Archimedys™ and its many benefits
Main advantages of this new technology are the need for quick handling by maintenance personnel, quick installation, and recovery of existing elements. Equipped with a simple and compact design, the Archimedys™ auger is lighter than a steel auger. This greatly facilitates its installation. The auger is simply constructed, without any welding, by assembling standard modules directly on site. Moreover, if damaged, modules are replaced in case of accident. They are then put back on the axle without having to replace the whole auger.
The polymer technology used in its manufacture is highly corrosion resistant. Its abrasion resistance is often three times higher than that of steel.
The Archimedys™ advantages for maintenance are innumerable. Only the damaged modules are replaced and put back on the axle, not the whole auger. Maintenance operations are very simple and quick. Maintenance costs and times are reduced, as are operating losses due to downtime.
Archimedys™, a technological revolution!
Modular auger Archimedys™ received the “Prix de l’innovation industrielle” in 2011
