Whether you are after a combination of air and moisture removal, pasteurisation and rapid cooling or crystallisation /storage we’ll work with you to get the best outcome for your high-value product.
Honey drum tipping and pumping
To enable safe and efficient handling / tipping of drums, we have designed a system whereby multiple drums can be tipped at once to allow for a good flow rate for your process. Once the drums are decanted the honey is then pumped to the process plant.
Dealing with such a valuable product such as Manuka honey, several factors need to be taken into consideration to make sure the heating process is carried out in a careful and gentle manner.
Moisture Evaporation and Air Removal
Once the honey has completed its heating step it may then go through a moisture evaporation process by forwarding the honey to a vacuum vessel.
After the sugar crystals have been liquefied and excess moisture has been removed, the honey then goes through a filtration process.
Once the honey has exited the filter it is sent through to a crystallisation tank where the honey is suitably agitated to ensure there is no air incorporation within the product.
A control panel will be supplied which will enable the operator to adjust the processing speed of the product, and turn the process on and off. Pump speed and product temperatures will all be displayed. Operation intervention is very easy and product throughput can be very easily changed and controlled.
Once fabrication has been completed in our workshop we are then able to disassemble your honey process for transport. Once the equipment arrives on site a member(s) of the Thermaflo team travel to site to carry out the onsite installation if required.
Commissioning and Training
We provide a full commissioning and training service to support all of our projects. Depending on how much experience you have with process plant operations, we are able to take the time to train you on how to operate your new process equipment. It does not matter if you are a first time processor, by the time we leave you will be confident around operating your plant by yourself.
This includes both preventative maintenance service support on a scheduled program as well as on the phone support for the operators and local tradesman eg the electrician.
