Vibratory feeder is the spice of success
To help improve production rates and usable yields, a company selects a vibratory feeder for its spice milling and screening operation.
Since 1947, Van de Vries Spice Corp., East Brunswick, N.J., has been
processing and supplying high-quality food ingredients for the food manufacturing, bakery supply, and food distribution industries. The company provides custom packing and private labeling services and produces spice and seasoning formulations; gravy, soup, and dry-sauce mixes; custom coffee and tea flavorings; and many other products. When making a custom coffee or tea flavoring, the company mills and screens the specified spice to the required particle size range and then packages it for shipment to the customer or sends it to a blending station for further processing. In the past, the mill that the company used to reduce the spices produced too many overs and unders, which minimized the usable yields and kept production costs high.
