Context: A leading peanut processor needed to build a new roasting facility to keep up with increasing demand, improve food safety and replace existing capital with better and more efficient equipment. In the strategic planning phase, the search began with looking for the right engineering partner with the following attributes: One with expertise managing a
News & Case Studies
Case studies, education, and news on MPE technology so that industry professionals can better understand our systems, grinders, and conveyors.
When our friends at Philz Coffee told us their amazing new MPE-designed processing system—with its shiny new green coffee silos, classification system, Chain-Vey tube conveyors, roasters, and packa
MPE’s Chain-Vey and Systems Group Divisions opened a new Testing Lab located in Chicago, USA. This “state of the art” testing facility houses 7 full-size Chain-Vey systems and a fully functional loss in weight unload, batching, and mixing system. Seeing is believing and what better way to validate a new conveyance solution than to run
A large North American roaster needed to build a new coffee roasting plant. MPE Systems Group engineers managed the project from conception to commissioning. From pre-design to commissioning, the project spanned roughly one year. The project was completed on-time, despite the Coronavirus pandemic. MPE’s commitment to the project is perhaps best exemplified by one systems
Keeping complex equipment running is important, but not easy. So when travel or timelines don’t allow you to bring a technician on-site, you can bring in an MPE virtual technician instead. It is a fast, organized, and effective way to make your local team trained experts. With MPE’s Virtual Support, your personnel can interface live
The conveying of ingredients, foods, and bulk solids all require energy. However, the loss of energy through excess motion of air, noise, and heat varies greatly among conveying options. Usually, plant engineers have a litany of requirements that, when taken into consideration collectively, tilt the scales toward one type of conveyor over another. But when
The topic of gentle conveyance in the production of finished foods, and any application where degradation is a high-value loss for plant managers, is fraught with misinformation and unsubstantiated claims. Tubular drag conveyors are a type of enclosed, dust-tight, space-saving and fully customizable conveyor system popular among many of the world’s leading finished food processors.
A large coffee import and processing company wanted to grow its green coffee cleaning, processing, and handling capacity. The company relied on MPE’s Systems Engineering Group to design the majority of its process system with key features such as tubular drag conveyance, custom-designed mezzanine funnels, automated batching, and dust collection, among others. “We wanted to provide the customer with
