The quest for greater efficiencies in costs and time is exceeded only by an increasing emphasis on product consistency and quality. Shick’s Minor/Micro Ingredient Bulk Handling Systems provide levels of speed, accuracy, consistency, sanitation, scheduling and reporting that were previously unattainable.
Minor ingredient systems, by their very nature, require more knowledge about products and processes, which is why, even with our years of experience, we continue to learn every day through our full-scale test facility. Utilizing Shick's test facility, in conjunction with our process experience, allows Shick's engineers to learn about your material's convey characteristics before actually designing your minor ingredient systems. It is this experience that provides Shick the ability to conceptually develop the best approach and select the proper equipment for your system.
Considering the high demand for precision control within highly regulated markets, minor ingredient handling systems must do more than transfer small amounts of ingredients to a process. They must provide exact weighments of ingredients with the assurance of repeatability, managed by accurate reports that show recipe formulation and plant inventories.
