SSB equipment for Cetotec in nutrient production
Bagging, weighing, dosing and packaging of materials used at Cetotec GmbH. A joint project of SSB Wägetechnik GmbH and customer.
Cetotec was founded in 1996 and has established itself as a driving force for development and process optimization in vinegar and kombucha technology. Its customized plants from laboratory to industrial scale, nutrients, measurement and control technology, and filtration systems are used on all continents.
Today, Cetotec is the world market leader in the vinegar industry and the driving force for innovation in the sector. A family business: committed and ambitious when it comes to product quality and development; with experience customers can trust and knowledge of how to help effectively and solution-oriented. At the site in Bad Honnef in Germany, the focus is on production, research and development.
SSB Wägetechnik GmbH has been the specialist for bagging, weighing and control technology for over 30 years. The market leader of large-scale industrial weighing technology offers a range of weighing machines for filling in packaging units of different weights.
By means of the installed machines and equipment of SSB Wägetechnik, the nutrient substrate for acetic acid bacteria is filled into 20kg bags and into 800kg BigBags.
Bagging, weighing and dosing
The BE 25 Multifill gross bagging scale and the BigBag bagging system grant the desired results for the products of Cetotec GmbH at highest performance and precision.
Easy-to-clean screw conveyor
The installed trough screw conveyor provides better cleanability, easy access to the components and thus complete, extensive cleaning possible. The screw is located in a trough that can be easily opened at the top by means of flaps, so that it is very easy to access the inside of the screw during cleaning. The decision was made to install this high-quality and somewhat more cost-intensive screw in order to obtain a completely clean product at all times. Due to the high demands and requirements for food hygiene, the parts in contact with the product are made of stainless steel.
Closing of the bags
Another advance due to the installation of the SSB equipment: The bags are no longer sewn shut as in the past, but now welded. This ensures an air- and moisture-tight sealing and closing of the bags and the end product.
Another requirement of the project: a higher degree of automation in the individual production steps and thus the relief of the employees in some operations. Furthermore, the SSB machines at Cetotec are calibrated by SSB Weighing Technology according to the legal requirements.
In addition, SSB Wägetechnik GmbH offers further service, such as repair, spare parts supply and maintenance. Thus, a constant control of the equipment and a comprehensive service before, during and after each project is offered to each individual customer for the highest possible satisfaction.
