The coffee roastery Martermühle also has the same quality claim when new equipment should be planned and procured for the improvement of the work processes. A modern filling scale should be completed on a new transport and supply system for coffee beans. The amount of coffee beans processed daily totaled 500 kg – the restriction on best quality and small lots should guarantee a fresh coffee aroma.
Originally, coffee beans were poured in small amounts by hand from barrels into the collection hopper. The then placed filling unit fills doses of coffee in different retail containers and sealed and marked them. The process was improved to be more work ergonomic, cleaner and simpler but without taking away from the unique aroma of the coffee.
After test runs, it was decidedto use the Volkmann VS 200 LT vacuum conveyor. The slow transport provided by the exceptionally compact and quick and easy to clean Volkmann conveyor system proved less stressful to the comparatively sensitive coffee beans, and this was critical.
The extraction of material by the suction lance directly from the barrel now makes loading the filling scale operator friendly, quick and safe. The conveyor system can be easily taken apart and cleaned with minimal intervention and without tools for pending grade changes.
“For our employees, the work situation has been considerably simplified, and the design makes it possible to clean it quickly.“
