Manufacturers of ice-cream have a need to destroy returned goods with expired date and/or faulty manufacture to prevent the products being sold by mistake.
The RUNI screw compactor handles both destruction, separation and compacting in one continuous process, which means handling and storage at the manufacturer are saved. Installation of the compactor close to the production increases certainty of destruction and saves transport cost.
During separation the waste stream is split into two: The liquid can be discarded as waste water or in some cases it can be collected and sold for other purposes - This could be animal feed or energy production. The solid is now so dry it can go to to incineration at lower cost or be sold to recycling.
The defrosted ice-cream can be fed into the screw compactor manually or with a conveyor belt into the vertical hopper. The liquid is pressed out through a hole matrix and the compacted material is slowly pushed out of the departure tray and collected in a container.
For dewatering defrosted ice-cream, RUNI offers the SK370 screw compactor.
The capacity of the compactor is approx. 15.000 Litres per hour.
The perforated matrix is made of stainless steel (AISI316) to withstand liquids with low pH.
In the food industry the machine needs to be placed somewhere away from the main production.
The ice-cream must be 100% defrosted.
