Packing system enhancement for Wynnstay Feed

Chronos BTH recently secured an order to enhance a Richard Simon supplied automatic feed packing system to enhance the speed of the existing packing system at the Llansantffraid Mill of Wynnstay Feed Division in Powys, Wales, UK.

Wynnstay Feed Division is a major supplier of animal feeds and nutrition products for all species of livestock in Wales, the Borders and Midlands.
 
The company purchases a lot of home grown ingredients and has feed sales in excess of 300,000 tonnes of compound and blended feeds, which are supplied from five locations.
 
At the Llansantffraid Mill two Richard Simon supplied UBM weighers and Computapak II controllers were used to pack a range of animal feed pellets into bags and Big Bags.
 
New controllers
Utilising the original installation and contract documentation Chronos BTH has upgraded the old bagging weigher controllers with SpeedAC NXT weighing controllers mounted in a new control panel in the control room.
 
To ensure that enhanced packing speed are achieved and matched to the output of the existing automatic open-mouth bag placer, Chronos BTH has supplied a new Chrono-weigh E55 bagging weigher.
 
Integrating this weigher into the existing packing systems also allows Wynnstay Feeds to operate the weighers as a duplex pair or as standalone weighers when filling Big Bags.
 
Wynnstay’s own engineers installed the new equipment. Chronos BTH service engineers then checked the installation before completing the plant commissioning.
