Pie producer Pooles of Wigan installed Braby’s Vacatex Atex-compliant vacuum transfer and batch weighing package in 2008.

Vacatex is designed to make handling ingredients in the process industries easy and to improve efficiency.

It eliminates manual bag handling; provides consistent batch accuracy; saves waste on split and damaged bags; reduces the storage area required for bags; and creates a cleaner working environment – thereby improving safety by eliminating dust and the consequent risk of explosion.

It meets all DSEAR and ATEX 137 regulations for fire and explosion prevention in the workplace.

Braby’s service includes the provision of a hazard and operability (HAZOP) file, identifying risks and solutions.

Braby made minor adjustments to the basic design to meet Pooles’ particular requirements.

Braby’s Derek Burrows re-visited Pooles of Wigan to see how itsVacatex products were working.

‘We adapted Vacatex to fit into Pooles of Wigan’s factory needs and after I visited the company I was encouraged to find that it felt it was working impeccably,’ he said.

Joe Parsons at Pooles of Wigan added: ‘During the installation process it was necessary for amendments to be made to the design of the Vacatex system so that it would work with our particular processing systems.

‘The engineers at Braby met every extra need we felt necessary and, two years on, we are very pleased with our Vacatex systems which do the job required with minimal maintenance costs.’
