Customised weighers for each product component
Multipond offers a range of customised solutions for salads and vegetables. Each weigh bucket is selected and calibrated with integral calibration weights to suit individual components and overall output requirements.
For multi-component products, each component can be individually weighed and dosed to ensure the correct distribution within the mix.
Outputs of up to 110 weighings per minute are possible, depending on product and target weight.
Line integration flexibility
Multipond weighers can also be integrated with counting, mixing and packaging equipment. Products are accurately weighed before being automatically mixed and packed with other components, for example adding sachets containing croutons, sauces, dressings etc. They are then transferred into almost any pack format eg bags, trays or multi-compartment trays.
Multipond’s highly accurate weighing system is ideal for single and multiple component salads, such as ready-to-eat salad bowls or ready-to-cook stir-fry vegetable packs etc.
Even difficult products, like moist salad leaves, are easily handled with Multipond’s patented surface profile. These machines handle a variety of shapes and sizes of salad leaves and other fresh food components including:
- Lettuces like leaf, iceberg, oak-leaf, chicory
- Chopped vegetables, coleslaws
- Greek salad mix
- Fruit salad mix
- Noodles (dry and moist)
- Cured meat pieces, prawns etc
