Capable of moving highly fragile products through multiple process operations into bulk storage for temporary holding prior to final packaging, the NBE automated bulk material handling system operates at a process rate of 12,000 lb./hr. Bulk totes of product are nested into a lift carriage and sealed to a discharge hood before being vertically conveyed to a 23-ft. discharge height. The vibratory conveyor moves the product through 2 stages of high-speed image processing and sorting. Then, the finished product is moved into a storage tote using a reverse-tilt fill method. The final takeaway conveyor section includes an integrated, NTEP-certified weigh system.
