Features

Advanced software

Consistent product quality, ingredients savings

Built-in control software regulates the quantity of ingredients used in the product mix. This highly controlled process gives a consistent product quality – a predictable end product for consumers and a consistent yield for producers. At the same time, it increases profitability since the high level of accuracy means virtually no ingredients are 'given away'.

Multiple ingredients handling

Enables a diversified product range

Capable of handling up to eleven individual ingredients streams at the same time, this unit can be used to formulate almost any product. All ingredient and product parameters are managed by an advanced recipe manager using a mass balance equation. This keeps precise control of the product formulation and standardization process in order to deliver the product (on specification) to the next processing step.

In-line production method

Minimizes products losses

With inline production, product flows through the system continuously. This method is economical for larger production volumes and, since it requires fewer tanks (compared to batch production), product losses caused by hold up volumes are considerably reduced.

Fewer buffer tanks

Low utilities consumption and hence operational costs

Continuous production requires fewer buffer tanks than batch production, and hence the overall consumption of utilities is reduced. To give an example, the removal of one 20,000 litre tank reduces water consumption by 600m3/yr, power needs by 26,400 kWh/yr, and CO2 emissions by 13 tonnes/yr.

Automated production system

Reduces personnel costs

Thanks to an automated control system, all the operator needs to do is select a production recipe. This is then communicated to the Tetra Alfast system, which executes the recipe without the need for further operator intervention. The amount of time an operator needs to attend to the unit is therefore negligible.
