Measuring of salt flow: from production to packing

Akzo Nobel Salt, now Dansk Salt – part of Nobian, located in Mariager, Denmark contacted Jesma for a solution.

They wanted to measure the internal conveyance of raw materials from production to packing.  The solution was to be used for two different line types: GMP and FFP salt, which is specially intended for medical use and therefore requires frequent cleaning. In addition, the space available in the factory was quite narrow.

Close dialogue resulted in the right solutions.

The solutions for Dansk Salt included a combination of belt scales, built into existing conveyors, for four different location and a small throughput scale ‘JesIntake’ for 2-6 t/h per line.

The co-operation with Jesma has been very good, it fully complies with our expectations.

Implementation with existing equipment

As the factory sections already were using Siemens equipment, it meant that the new systems needed to be Siemens SIWAREK as well.

It was important to us, to find the perfect partner for the job. A partner, who could handle both the mechanics and the electronics, and at the same time could carry out the approvals of the systems.

Furthermore, it was necessary to approve the implemented JesIntakes according to OIML  R107. To obtain the approval, it is required to use loadcells which comply with the Welmec rules in force at the time.

A solution like this, where SIEMENS FTA is configurated with approved load cells, requires high knowledge and a good understanding of the procedures for approval.  With Jesma’s many years of experience, the know-how within the approved weighing area was the key for a straightforward process.

We attach great importance to a production with reliable machines and systems, which at the same time complies with the requirements which we, as a modern company have, and also the requirements from the authorities.
