Turn-key integrated solution Case Study

Case Study: when one of the biggest European tuna can producers was losing cans to uneven heat distribution in processing, Fedegari developed a turn-key integrated solution that resulted in 0 rejected cans.

The challenge

Overcoming undesirable temperature fluctuations and overheating, guaranteeing homogeneous heat distribution throughout the load. · Developing a fully integrated solution for treating different tuna can formats, increasing productivity and, consequently, reducing operating costs.

The context

The nutritional quality of the products as well as microbiological and sensory quality are essential factors in the food industry. The thermal processing of canned food is the most important step in the canning procedure1 . Currently, a large quantity of canned goods is rejected during production and has to be destroyed or reprocessed due to inefficient performances of sterilization. This increases the energy consumption and other significant food processing costs. 1 Ibrahim M. Ismail, Alaa Fahmy, Ahmed Azab, Magdy Abadir, and Seif-Eddeen K. Fateen. “Optimizing the sterilization process of canned food using temperature distribution studies”IOSR Journal of Agriculture and Veterinary Science (IOSR-JAVS). For example, overcooking may cause a weight reduction of the product which obligates the manufacturer to complete the cans with additional product in order to comply with the weight indicated on the labelling. Such practices are costly. Sterilization plays a vital role in the food industry as the final product is intended for human consumption. It also represents a critical process since it may influence the quality and safety of the food. In this context, only optimal processing conditions through the proper application of the F-value approach in sterilization allows to optimize the balance between food safety and quality requirements. It assures an appropriate and homogeneous thermal treatment, thus avoiding over- or undercooking, and consequently maintaining the highest standards for uniformity of texture, flavor, and retention of nutrients.

The solution

Process knowledge applied in the development of a fully integrated solution for food preservation and throughput maximization. Fedegari superheated water sterilizers – FOW series (Fig.1) were chosen for improving process performance and throughput. The choice focused on the simplest, most robust and cost-effective solution for sterilizing at a wide range of temperatures with the shortest process time. Fedegari designed an unique, but completely integrated and accurate system. The key for an outstanding performance is the effective control of temperature and F-value which guarantees the highest uniformity to the sterilization process. Control efficiency eliminates errors and rejected loads while operating cost-effectively. The goal was to guarantee the microbiological target along with thermometric performance, through a new process design capable of offering competitive advantage over conventional alternatives. Besides, an additional concern was raised regarding the packaging quality.

The results

Fedegari has supported the customer, one of the biggest European tuna can producers, with in-depth knowledge in sterilization processes, developing a turn-key integrated solution focused on throughput maximization. The customer has increased its productivity at the end of every cycle and the number of rejected cans has been reduced to zero.

Filling and Packaging Line for Flavoring

Recently, Cozzoli was approached by this customer who was looking to fill gallon-sized containers of liquid flavoring. This was to be a complete line that would incorporate filling, capping, labeling and case packing. Because of the high alcohol content of what was being filled, the filling and capping sections needed to also be explosion-proof.

With the required speed of 20 containers per minute and the containers being clear, it was decided that a 10-head In-Line Fill-To-Level and our Versacapper were the best machines for this application. By using a fill-to-level machine, the liquid in each container would appear to be visually identical. If a volumetric filler was used instead, the volume of each container would be accurate, but due to slight variations in the containers, the visual levels of the liquid could appear higher or lower.

After being capped, the containers would then be moved to another room, via conveyor, where they will be labeled and eventually packed into boxes.

For the labeling and case packing sections of this line, we reached out to our partners at ID Technology and EpsonThe challenge for these areas was that the customer wanted the labels to be print-on-demand. Rather than having the labels feed off of a role, which is the typical application, they needed to be fed directly from the printer to the labeler.

The biggest challenge of integrating the printer with the labeler is that the printer backs up about 12” every time it begins to print. To combat this issue, we used a loose-loop system that uses sensors to monitor the status of the printer and labels.

3 sensors were added into the loose-loop system. The lowest sensor monitors the loose loop to stop the printer when enough labels have been printed.  The middle sensor tells the printer to produce more labels.  The top sensor signals out-of-labels and stops the applicator until more are available. By using this loose-loop system we successfully integrated the printer with the labeler.

Finally, after labeling, the containers are then moved to a table where they are manually packed into boxes and fed through a case packer, which automatically closes, tapes and applies a label to the box.
