Conveying screws, sets of tools, and product turners:

Individually produced for the drinking industry

Manufacturers of beverage plants and drink fillers are faced with constantly high requirements in order to keep their filling systems in line with the latest state of technology and to successfully meet high global demand. Murtfeldt Kunststoffe supports them in their efforts through the custom processing of plastics.

Maybe the requirement is an increase in filling speeds for large order quantities, which means that new, integral, high-performance plants are required. Or maybe medium-sized filling companies want to benefit from technological innovations for single pieces of machinery. Whatever the scenario, all developments are subject to the desire for better filling quality, higher plant availability, and lower maintenance, energy, water, and cleaning agent costs. However, these costs quickly increase by 20 to 30% due to the high hygiene standards in the food sector and the corresponding amount of time required for cleaning.

The goal here is to shorten cleaning cycles while keeping product quality the same. This goal is fully achievable with conveying screws, format sets, and product turners by Murtfeldt Kunststoffe. The renowned manufacturer of components constructed to plan in accordance with drawings has already committed itself to this task for the selection and manufacture of its materials. The company is presenting its solutions at BrauBeviale 2015 at Stand D063 in Hall 10.1.

All Murtfeldt plastics have an excellent sliding ability which significantly reduces the energy required to achieve the desired drive power. They are also highly resistant to abrasion and have excellent chemical resistance. These plastic properties guarantee a long lifetime for machines and plants. This - in conjunction with high energy efficiency and long maintenance/servicing intervals - enables sustainable growth for companies.

Regardless of whether you need a design for a new product or the provision of spare parts, Murtfeldt will be glad to provide you with advice right down the line. If so desired by the customer, the long-standing Dortmund-based company can also produce entire format sets for filling plants in the beverage, food, and pharmaceutical industries in different dimensions. Murtfeldt's format sets consist of conveying screws, conveyor stars, and sliding return channel components.

Conveying screws are designed to exactly suit the bottle shape and size. The conveyor stars can be made in a single piece, from two parts, or - in the case of really large plants - in segments. Sliding return channel components are produced in an appropriate, project-specific shape and size, along with replacement slide rails if required. Whether a single part or series run, Murtfeldt can offer the best solution for any application.

Murtfeldt Kunststoffe also develops and produces a wide range of product turners, designed to meet the individual requirements of the customer. Whether turners for cans, bottles, glasses, cartons, or small/large boxes, there are no limits to the company's manufacturing expertise.

There are lots of good reasons to choose Murtfeldt product turners. Thanks to the excellent slide properties of the processed plastics, they work with very little dynamic pressure. The joint-free guide shape means that products can be conveyed really quietly, and the multi-component design of the product turners makes them easy to dismantle for cleaning. Irrespective of the industry, Murtfeldt manufactures product turners with any turning angle that can be used in virtually any production and manufacturing stage.

However, in the food industry, beverage filling sector, and all other areas where hygiene plays an important role, another important requirement must also be met: Compliance with legal requirements for the food industry. [FS] ("food-safe") has been added to the product names of Murtfeldt's plastics which are suitable for use in the food sector. These plastics are certified in accordance with the updated EC Regulation 1935/2004, which is now considerably stricter than the FDA approval scheme in the US and which governs the usage of plastics which come into contact with foods.
