Custom designed Pickle Blenching, Transfer and Weight Batching continuous system

Posted on 01 Dec, 2016

Sepak Industries isan Australian owned and operated Processing Engineering Company has successfully designed, constructed, installed and commissioned a pickle blenching, batch weighing and transfer system.

Automation Systems Sepak Automation Systems Australia Automation Systems Design

The system was designed and developed between an Australian Icon in Pickles and Condiments producer called 333s Condiments and Australian owned company Sepak Industries.

The system was designed to blench a given amount of Pickled Cauliflower and pickled cucumber in a continuous manner. The batch size of the pickles were measured on a continuous conveyors which was controlled by Omeron PLC and Touch screen system.

All ingredients measured in correct amount prior to transferring to further cooking process.

The new system has saved 333s Condiments considerable amount of labour cost and floor space.

Australian Design and made Commercial Steam Electric Cooking Kettles

Posted on 01 Dec, 2016

Sepak Industries, an Australia owned and operated Processing Engineering Company has released their CK200E (200L working volume) Electric steam cooking kettles for Commercial cooking.

Cooking Kettles Australia

These electric kettles are excellent!

  • Uses 415VAC 50Hz, power supply depends on models.
  • Are great for kitchens where gas is not readily available.
  • Cheaper to install as there are no new gas lines to be installed and no chimney for gas burner.

Sepak Industries CKxxxE series Electric Steam from 50L capacity to 500L. The heating time, using water, is impressive at 60minutes from room temperature to boiling in CK200E with 200L capacity.

Cooking Kettles Sydney

The Sepak Industries CKxxxE Electric steam Kettles standard features are;

  • Stainless steel 316 product contact parts.
  • Hygienically designed and constructed kettle interior.
  • Scrapping agitator which ensures there is no product burn on.
  • Tank bottom outlet valve which ensures 100% of the ingredients are mixed.
  • 2 x removable lids, 1 lid with safety switch which shuts off the agitator when opened. The other lid is fixed with bolts only required to be removed when agitator requires servicing.
  • Automatic water level monitoring in the jacket which is interfaced with heating element to protect premature heating element failure.
  • Digital product temperature control (not steam temperature control) hence given accurate good quality food every time.

Cooking Kettle Systems

The Electric Kettles can be supplied with following options;

  • HMI colour touch screen which enables operators to save and reuse recipes where cooking temperature and cooking times can be adjusted.
  • Water batchmeter.
  • Clean-In-Place (CIP) Washing system which uses spinning spray head to spray high velocity spray within the kettle.

Choosing a suitable Food Grade Stainless Steel Pump

Posted on 16 Aug, 2016

When some liquid food products are needed to be transferred from one vessel to another, the question arises on which type of pump would do the job? 

The answer one would need to consider first and foremost is, is the pump chosen a food grade stainless steel 316 (also known as marine grade) which is designed to be able to clean easily? Can the pump be Clean In Place (CIP)? Can the pump be easily dissembled and reassembled? 

Secondly, what is the product being transferred?

  1. Thin liquid like water or low viscosity oil, low viscosity sugar syrup, apple Juice, Orange juice etc.. then usually Centrifugal pumps are suitable. For CIP return lines, the CIP –B series pumps are suitable.
  2. Thicker liquid such as Apple sauce, Tomato sauce, Honey, Cooked Foods (spaghetti sauce, pumpkin soup etc..) then choose Lobe pump. If you are after a gentle Milk pumping for cheese making then, these TUL series lobe pumps with Bi-wing rotors are the way to go because the bi-wing rotors allow for larger volume per revolution (high volume pumping) hence can be run at lower speeds.
  3. For large chunks of fruits in syrup, Piston pumps are suitable. These pistons are also suitable for high discharge pressure for up to 30 bars.
  4. To clean these pumps either CIP or manual cleaning  Rua Kura Australian made cleaning agents work very well.

Sepak Industries has successfully designed, manufactured and installed a 2000L Fermentation System for Bread making. The mixing system is designed to Mix 50% flour to 50% water weight/weight and consists of Flour screw conveyor, Fermentation tank with load cells and heating jacket, Food grade Lobe Pump, Food grade plate heat exchanger, Food grade valves, stainless steel food grade pipe work, 2,000L storage tank with cooling jacket and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) industrial computer automation system

The Sepak Industries Fermentation tank is designed and constructed to food grade standards such that SS316 food grade stainless steel is used and suitable for CIP (Clean In Place). The stainless steel tank is supplied with Sepak Industries unique dough mixing system. The mixing of dough is achieved  by the main agitator which is a Sepak Industries Food grade scrape surface agitator and dough mixer working in counter rotating motion very much like Sepak Industries Counter Rotating Mixing system. The stainless steel tank is mounted on a set of stainless steel load cells (which measure correct amount of water and flour ratio to make dough) controlled via Automation system. 

The Automation system accurately measures the amount of water to flour through the stainless steel load cells. The control system also controls the heating temperature for fermentation process with built in timer so that operator can set a suitable fermentation rate. 

The fermented product is then transfer from stainless steel fermentation tank to another stainless steel storage tank via Sepak Industries food grade lobe pump and food grade heat exchanger. The plate heat exchanger is used to cool the fermented dough in a single pass so that the fermentation process slows as the fermented dough enters in to the stainless steel tank. The stainless steel storage tank is jacketed with glycol to keep the product cooled to slow the fermentation process. The cooling process is enhanced by Sepak Industries food grade scrape surface agitator. The operator can call up any amount of fermented dough to be added to the main bread making line.
