Mogensen delivers its 100th vibratory feeder to Suffolk company.

Mogensen Raw Materials Handling, suppliers of vibratory feeders to the Micronizing Company UK Ltd of Framlingham, Suffolk for 20 years, has recently delivered its 100th machine to the company.

Micronizing Company UK was founded in 1971 by David Newton, the father of today's managing director, following upon his successful development of the concept of cooking cereals and other food grains by means of infra-red radiant energy.

The idea of using infra-red energy in this way was not in itself new but the concept was revolutionised in practice by the use of a gas-fired ceramic panel as the infra-red heat source.

Mogensen's part in the process is the supply of a range of vibratory feeder models with capacities up to 8000kg/hr. The feeder is installed below the radiant energy source and ensures, by virtue of the its throwing action, that the food products are evenly cooked, ie that the whole of the surface of each grain is gradually exposed to the infra-red heat, and that the products remain within the process long enough to achieve the desired degree of cooking but not long enough to incur an undesirable loss of moisture. The feeder drive frame is constructed of mild steel, whereas the conveying tray is of food quality stainless. The underside of the tray is thermally insulated to reduce heat transfer to the drive unit. The insulation also provides the benefit of some reduction in noise levels.
