Blending for Food Industry and Beverage Industry.

Semi-Bulk Systems, Inc. is considered by many of the ‘Fortune 50’ food manufacturers to be their true partner in developing specific processes customized to maximize their competitive and profitability positions. We enter into strict confidentiality agreements which allows us to completely understand each customers’ products and their primary objectives. We dig deep to identify formula constituents, volume requirements, cycle times, facility logistics and more. We provide our customers with the opportunity to see their product produced in our pilot plant or in their facility. We will then present them with a written Process Performance Guarantee for the process we have proposed. Our proposals include a description of the many benefits that will be realized by making the change to our Dynamic Mix Making Technology. This breakdown of benefits is what we call: ProcessXstreamLiningsm.

The Vacucam® Process provides new and valuable benefits versus traditional methods.  The dry side of the process will be configured based on the volume of individual ingredients, the number of individual ingredients serving the process, and the type of package used for shipping the individual dry ingredients. Dry side system components can be a single Bag Dump Hopper for minor ingredients, a single PH Bulk Bag Surge Hopper for bulk bag ingredients, multiple Bulk Bag Surge Hoppers, or any combination as required. Process control automation is critical in assuring proper sequencing, loss in weight delivery with line sweep and total batch to batch consistency. Large producers of high volume powdered materials may apply our designs for full bulk dry handling and our Continuous Steady State Dynamic Batching.

The VACUCAM® Slurry Process is the most effective method for the complete dispersion of whey and milk proteins, gelatin, pectins, gums, starch, sugar and all other dry ingredients typically used in the manufacture of pourable dressings, dips and sauces.   Vacucam® Processes are designed and built to USDA/3A specifications and include CIP compatibility of all components on both the dry and the wet sides of the process. Semi-Bulk Systems, Inc.  belongs to several Dairy Industry and industry related organizations.

Several Vacucam® processes are specifically designed for the Dairy Industry and are defined in detail under  processes. They include Frozen Desserts, Yogurt Mix, Milk Powder Reconstitution and Sugar Liquefication. Key benefits to the dairy industry includes:
