Storci’s great experience allows the creation of egg storage and dosing systems according to the different needs of pasta factories.
We offer three types of systems
: manual, semi-automatic and automatic management.
Today, our technical director, Mr Alberto Serventi tells us about an innovative semi-automatic system designed for one of our customers, Grandi Pastai Italiani S.p.A. of Correggio
“As part of the pasta factory project,” explains Serventi, “we installed here a system that allows different types of egg to be received and dosed on three pasta production lines, even simultaneously.
Eggs used for the production can come from external tanks, mobile internal tanks or from two fixed internal tanks that allow the mixing of egg with tomato or spinach powder”.
These internal tanks are placed in a dedicated refrigerated cell, which also houses the entire dosing unit, which is made up in detail of: a matrix of “mix proof” type valves for managing the liquid flow; batteries of peristaltic pumps that guarantee a precise and constant dosage of egg; process tanks; sensors and detection systems.
Inside this cell we additionally find the receiving group from external tanks which, by means of lobe pumps, allows the product to be sent to the internal tanks for the various mixing or to directly feed the lines.
Sanitary safety is guaranteed by a CIP washing system which automatically manages all the washing phases at different temperatures, with soda-based and sterilizing solutions, ensuring the sanitization of the system in a completely automatic way after each production cycle. The plant includes the tanks for water, soda and sterilizing solutions, the steam circuit necessary to heat the soda solution and the delivery pumps for the washing liquids.
