Halving the size of trolley packers.

Isoma has launched its new state-of-the-art small footprint trolley packer that is just half the size of many conventional existing or currently available trolley packers.

In the dairy industry it is now common practice to utilise two trolley packers per filling line in order to maintain poly bottle filling line capacities. While both packers are available for production, this system works well. However, many conventional large footprint trolley packers can sometimes suffer from short stoppages caused by badly aligned trolley shelves, poor condition trolleys in general or a malfunction of the packer itself. These stoppages have an immediate effect on the filler output. With one trolley packer unavailable, the throughput rating of the other packer is insufficient; therefore the filler speed needs to be ramped down to compensate for this packing capacity shortfall.

Tim Starkey, Managing Director of Isoma said: "Having listened to customers' production and engineering personnel and having studied many trolley packers in production, the overwhelming conclusion is that most of the currently available conventional trolley packers are working beyond their design capacity. In turn, this is further contributing to short and long trolley packer production stoppages. The critical matter of increasing trolley packer availability seems to have been overlooked within the design of many currently available trolley packers."

As well as increasing trolley speed and improving availability, Isoma's new concept trolley packer addresses the issue of size, where floor space in a cold room or filling hall is at a premium.
