Let’s get to know Virto-Cuccolini’s VP2 for safety sieving

Safety sieving is one of the most common industrial sieving processes.

The aim of safety sieving is to intercept coarse particles like insects, metal or plastic particles, coarse particles in general, whose presence may cause the main product to lose its quality.

In safety sieving, the oversize product is generally limited with respect to the main product (the undersize, in this case).

How has Virto-Cuccolini created its VP2 series for safety sieving?

Of course, we have taken into account many aspects:

  • the high speed of this process, which shall not slow down the speed of the whole production line
  • the generally high flow rate required for the main, undersize product
  • the typical installation context of such a process, which requires limited space
  • the easiness of maintenance: which may not be frequent, but shall be carried out quickly

And that’s how our VP2 series was born!

If you want to observe our sieve more closely, you can have a look at below video:

    Raw materials recirculation within food production cycles is increasingly becoming a good practice to which Virto-Cuccolini is happy to participate.

    In the case of chocolate bars production, for example, many producers are recovering waste product – bars broken during their production cycle or with aesthetic defects – by passing it through a melter. The product at the melter outlet finally needs to be sieved in order to remove not perfectly melted lumps or any residues of other ingredients.

    It is at this stage that the Virto-Cuccolini vibrating screens of the C-Line series come into play, by allowing this operation to be performed easily and quickly, either by installing a fixed vibrating sieve at the melter outlet, or by using the sieve when necessary within a batch cycle, and therefore, installing it on wheels.

    In this way, liquid chocolate can be reintroduced within the production cycle safely and without altering the quality of the final product in any way.

      Safeguarding food safety involves eliminating foreign bodies, lumps and metal parts that can enter production flow together with commonly used ingredients, such as flour and sugar, to name most used ones in food production.

      Sifting these particles through a size separation process is an excellent and easy solution.

      In Virto-Cuccolini range of vibrating sieves, this application can be performed by various models, such as VPB / VPM, VP1 and VP2, depending on case parameters such as available installation space, the expected amount of oversize product and the type of production cycle (batch or continuous), which ultimately determines the vibrating sieve maintenance and cleaning procedures.

      In the case of flour, among processing residues, organic fragments from grinded cereals can also be found, as it can be seen in this video, taken from our laboratory tests:

      In the case of sugar, it is about removing lumps (as it can be seen in this other video) which could negatively influence the contribution of this ingredient to final product quality, taste and texture:

        In food sector, a check screening to ensure that the powder or liquid ingredient is included in the manufacturing process without impurities is now a fundamental step for every manufacturer.

        Virto-Cuccolini is well aware of this challenge, in which it is essential to be able to guarantee consumer safety.

        Milk is one of the most used ingredients, both in liquid and powder form, to produce cheese, baby food and as an ingredient in other food specialties.

         

         

         

        In the long history of our company, studded with the most varied applications, we have provided dozens and dozens of vibrating sieves to filter for example ricotta residues or other impurities from whey, or to classify it according to the various granulometries, in order to create different products. Or again, for the screening of powdered milk for babies, particularly rich in fats and normally difficult to sift, obtaining excellent flow results.

         

         

         

         

        Each request can have particularities regarding the particles size to which the customer wants to separate the product, the different solutions available for cleaning the network, the flow rate that the customer wants to achieve: for any need for preventive verification of our services and the correct setting of the vibrating sieve, our laboratory in Reggio Emilia is always available together with our technicians, upon reservation, for a test.

        In this video, you can see a test conducted in our laboratory to verify the ability of the VP2 vibrating sieve to sift with excellent results at 400 µm, with the aim to eliminate some unwanted particles from the powdered milk:

          Virto-Cuccolini has recently completed its range of VP2 vibrating screens for control and safety sieving with the inclusion of the VP2 2000 size.

          VP2 type vibrating screens represent an intelligent solution for security / control screening in many industries, i.e. for those applications where the mesh (that is, the quantity of product larger than the desired cut point) is about 2-3% of the total flow rate.

          The typical context in which the Virto-Cuccolini VP2 is installed is under a silo, at the bottom of a bag emptying station or at tankers load points.

          This sieve is equipped with two side vibrators, one deck and a central outlet.

          The height has been designed with a compact unit in mind, to optimize space and allow easy installation even in existing systems.

           

           

          In addition to sizes 450, 500, 800, 900, 1200 and 1500, Virto-Cuccolini has now completed this range with the 2000 size, to meet the high capacity demands of the market.
