Custom Powder Containers Streamline Material Transfer

AFC Design Fits Tight Space, Prevents Mishandling

New powder containers from process equipment manufacturer Automated Flexible Conveyor, Clifton, NJ, ( feature a custom design that streamlines material transfer in a personal care product manufacturing process. Developed for a major private label manufacturer, the powder containers set FDA-compliant, polyethylene bulk containers within durable, steel frames in a configuration that fits neatly into an existing processing line. Sporting designed-in fork tubes and iris valve discharges, the custom design permits the containers to be safely and easily moved from the manufacturing line to the filling line for packaging, then quickly cleaned and returned for service at the mixer discharge upstream.

In addition to accommodating height and footprint limitations, the custom bulk containers are also designed to prevent human errors that could lead to cross-contamination. The custom steel frames are painted in a stark white surrounding white bottles to signify dedicated usage in the sanitary process, in contrast to the company’s blue container frames used in a nearby, non-regulated process.

The custom powder containers are suitable for storing and transferring food, nutrition, pharmaceutical, and other dry ingredients and are available in a choice of sizes, colors, and configurations. AFC custom designs and manufactures the containers in the company’s New Jersey facility.
