At PacMoore we’re always eager for more ways to execute our strategy with excellence. We aim to be the most reliable link in your supply chain, ensuring that every production run meets your specifications and schedule. When our customers come to us their fundamental need is for production capacity and that is what we supply. When we can increase the production capacity at one of our food processing facilities, it’s a win for our customers! That’s why we’re proud to announce that PacMoore has installed a new full scale plow blender. With the new addition, our blending systems in Hammond and Mooresville now include 4 full scale plow blenders, 3 full scale ribbon blenders, and 2 pilot blenders. PacMoore specializes in extrusion, spray drying, consumer packaging, and repackaging but it is dry blending that was our original core competency and remains central to our offering today.
Blender E Accommodates Fat and Oil Addition
This new blender has been installed at our headquarters in Hammond, IN and is our 5th full scale blender at this facility. The new system is named Blender E. It has two 40” Sweco sifters, a low profile hoist and slide gate valves underneath. The blender is 177 cubic feet, which is the smallest of the five blenders we have installed. We intentionally chose the size to accommodate some our fat and oil addition blends. We are able to provide options for blends with ingredients ranging from oil to shortening to all kinds of powders. Some of the unique features of the room include a flip flop gate to allow seamless pallet loading on the mezzanine, a 100 horsepower Variable Frequency Drive to change blending speeds, and low profile slide gates to provide utility within the existing height of the room.
Personally, my favorite feature of the room is the low profile hoists that generate only 7” of head height from the hoist beam to the bulk bag spreaders. Another highlight is the natural lighting in the room. These elements are unique to blender E at PacMoore’s facility in Hammond, Indiana. Other design features of the room include high pressure hot water, no leg posts to interfere with packaging equipment, and a level floor to accommodate our scaling equipment. After careful planning and engineering, I’m proud to say that Blender E is up and running! We’re excited for all the customers who will benefit from it in the future.
