Knighton Foods and Gericke partnership to deliver new capability.
As part of the strategy for growth and continual development of Knighton Foods we are pleased to announce the installation and commissioning of our brand new GMS Multiflux® blending system from Gericke Ltd. Knighton were seeking to source a new blending system that would complement the existing facilities to enable it to realise its vision as a producer of specialist powders. This new solution would need to offer short mixing times for sensitive ingredients but also be flexible enough to deal with more challenging products which often can require high speed refiners that ensure delivery of homogeneous blends.
The GMS Multflux® system was considered and selected in part because of the innovative patented approach entailing end mounted twin intensifiers. Through trials it was demonstrated to be more effective than other solutions and because of its end mounting approach, is expected to deliver improvement in efficiencies within operations and maintenance. The installation of the GMS Multflux® is celebrated by both parties as the first of its kind to be installed in the UK.
Ivor Blanch – Engineering Development Manager at Knighton Foods said
“The decision to take the Gericke solution was done so after months of extensive trials to ensure that this investment delivered the best possible solution for the business, two suppliers had been shortlisted but it was agreed that the Gericke solution provides exactly what we need and will be an integral part in the growth and further development of Knighton Foods”
