Nestle Mossel Bay Inclined Screw Conveyors, Mossel Bay

During the manufacturing of two pasteurisers for Nestle Mossel Bay, alternative projects were discussed, including the screw feeder project. The objective for the screw conveyors was to transfer milk powder from the outlet of a vibrating sieve to the inlet of a magnet and metal detector which then fed into the packing hopper. The project had some unique challenges to overcome. The factory layout has height constrains which forced detailed design consideration as well as having to transfer around a corner which resulted in us incorporating two screw feeders with one feeding into the other. This all had to be done while being able to convey at a volumetric flow rate of 9 tons an hour (product density of 500 kg/m3). The specific client requirement was to have scrape detection between the rotating shaft and screw housing. This could only be done using two options; vibration analysis and electrical continuity testing. Vibration analysis had been used in another Nestle factory and the feedback from this, was that there were too many false events due to the sensitivity of the system, and it was a costly installation. As a result, the electrical continuity testing option was explored and the major challenge […]

Relocation & Modification of hair care plant for Zeta Laboratories, Pinetown. June 2020

Anderson Engineering originally built a haircare production plant for a client in Pinetown in 2016. This plant was then auctioned off in 2020 and purchased by Zeta laboratories. Zeta Laboratories, manufacture several personal care cosmetics for a variety of household brands. The plant is intended to manufacture their current range of products which include but are not limited to personal care products such as lotions, body washes, creams, shampoos etc.  A unique challenge for this plant was the fact that the majority of all the recovered items that came out of the J-Strickland plant were re-used as far as possible in the new installation. This required our teams to recover all pipework as well as the pneumatic components.  The plant was originally designed for hair care-type products only. Relocation of the plant was done to ensure that the plant could now be used to manufacture a wider variety of products in their range.  The 3000L Contra-mix is the core of the manufacturing plant and at the time of manufacturing, this Contra-mix in 2016 was the biggest unit we had built. It is currently the second-largest unit currently being used in the field.  The complete Scope of Work included: Decommissioning the […]
