A fully automatic Packo butter melting unit for Unilever.
Packo has delivered a butter melting unit to Unilever South Central Europa for their plant in Rumania. It is a fully automatic system used for the melting, homogenisation and pasteurisation of waste butter out of tubs.
Packo has a many years' experience in the development and production of packed waste melters. This particular system is based on Packo technology but the design is tailored-made. It is PLC controlled and in close communication with the production line. Other integrated components are e.g. an extra top heating plate for the heating of the bottom of the tubs for fast melting, an independent hot water module and circuit, pneumatic cylinders for automatic movement of the heating battery and the top heating plate, an agitator, a sanitary, stainless steel centrifugal pump for the melted product, etc.
This is just one of the examples of Packo's packed waste melters. Other applications are e.g. the melting of butter blocs, fats and chocolate.
