By a full-time presence of engineers on site, Lascon – to the wishes of the customer – designed the system in a short time and worked it out for implementation. Partly due to the presence of engineers the communication lines were very short and could be flexible and our mechanics were able to start immediately with the implementation. In this manner, a substantial time- and cost saving of the project was realized.
Additionally, Lascon has done detailed engineering for automated CIP distribution and automated milk manifold to replace the existing milk and CIP torque plates. Because of the flexibility of the manifold, which beholds nearly 100 valves, Lascon has made a design in which no product remains stationary. Despite the limited space, a manifold is designed and produced in a way that it still remains easy to maintain.
Thanks to good preparation and creation of a temporary production situation, the plant has had no significant downtime and Lascon has installed the manifold and the necessary valves for CIP distribution in a few days and ahead of schedule. As this conversion took place in the same period as the other situation mentioned above, this made it even more complicated.
