When Fresh Vegetable Packers were looking to improve efficiency in their potato packhouse, manager Dave Pilkington knew Aurora could assist.
After discussing production needs and the desired outcome, Aurora recommended the Galaxy KV4500 Bulk Bag and Box Filler.
The unique construction of the latest generation Galaxy box fillers assures absolute dump-cone-free filling which is essential for proper air permeability. The KV4500 uses vertical elevators with product friendly finger-carrier construction, making it possible to fill boxes of virtually any shape or size. Filling is smooth and efficient as the product and any soil is swept along and distributed across the entire box or bag, layer by layer. When full boxes are removed and empty boxes placed in the machine, the machine simply continues to fill the boxes automatically, without interruption. Sensors on the bottom of the elevators limit the drop height of the product. The additional electronic weighing indicator also means weighing boxes or Big Bags without external equipment is possible.
“It is unbelievable” says Dave “I would highly recommend it”. Being used this season for potatoes the machine is proving its full potential in increased production and efficiency. “It saves a person standing on the end of a machine; the grader doesn’t stop, it just keeps on going; and the forklift operator can go and do other things while it is operating” he adds “when it is finished, all you have to do is tie the top of the bag”.
Not only is the unit increasing efficiency, it is doing so with ease. The unit is simple to run, and runs without needing constant attention. “It is so easy to handle” comments Dave, “smooth and really quiet”
“It is a great investment” Dave concludes. Increased production, reduced labour usage, and smooth, quiet, efficient processing; the KV4500 delivers on every front.
