Food Production and Packaging Facility Case Study

Manufacturing Challenge

American Vacuum was approached by a Fortune 500 food processing company to bid on updating the vacuuming equipment and systems for a Food Production and Packaging Facility. The facility needed to upgrade certain equipment and replace obsolete and outdated equipment with the goal of increasing the efficiency of the operations, improving the cleanliness of the facility and increasing workers’ safety.

Efficient, sanitary processing for grains, such as rice requires superior dust control as the rice is transported and moved through mixing and processing.   In addition, as with all grains, dust accumulates throughout the plant and needs to be cleaned for sanitation and safety. Spills occur during transfer and processing. The requirements for the project included:

Custom-Designed Solution

American Vacuum’s solution was designed to provide the rice processing plant with high quality dust control throughout the processing facility, high volume conveyor systems, and custom vacuum systems to manage dust and spills at material transfer points.

We provided turnkey installation services, from bid through equipment commissioning. Training was provided to plant staff to ensure optimal operations.

Installation of American Vacuum’s equipment met the specific equipment requirements for the project. In addition, the plant reported increased cleanliness, improvements in efficiency, and decreased maintenance man hours throughout the plant.
