Torresan Estate is a contract packager sited in McLaren Vale, SA, catering for both small and large packaging runs.
The company’s success has meant that running one production shift daily became troublesome for staff time management. This in turn became personally intrusive and a solution was required to liberate staff time and provide a more efficient means of packaging wine. No current system was able to meet the many and varied requirements of Torresan Estate.
BHF was commissioned to design and fabricate a fully-customised filtration system, referred to as the BHF Automated Filtration System (AFS). This automated system provided immediate and manifold benefits to Torresn Estate, the most important of which was the return of staff time to family members.
The BHF AFS has many features:
> Bespoke design according to customer requirements
> High flow rate to match the new filler
> Integration with the new filler and existing CIP systems
> Smart phone remote operation
> Wine temperature adjustment capability
> Duty/standby configuration of first stage filtration housings for continuous production, even in the event of a primary filter blockage
> Automated clean, sanitise and integrity test programmes
Very happy. Personal time recovery in excess of projected. Lower $/L. Faster filling = shorter shift. Operation from home if desired. Future-proofing through programming upgrades. WISA Impact Award for Packaging 2019.
