Sodimate’s powder handling systems can be used in variety of food processing industries to transfer bulk food ingredients which can be particularly difficult to handle. Common products handled with Sodimate equipment include sugar, wheat, flour, corn, starch, whey and fishmeal.
A standard Sodimate system for dry food products includes a storage container, a mechanical unloader, and screw feeder. Sodimate supplies a variety of standard and custom-made storage containers such as silos, hoppers and super sacs, each equipped with a mechanical unloader designed to prevent bridging, caking, and clogging. A shaftless screw feeder or conveyor is then used to transfer the product to the next processing point. For food powders that need to be mixed into a slurry, Sodimate offers a slurry tank complete with a mixer, control valves, flow monitoring equipment and a skid pump.
