Sealing Solutions was engaged in the upgrade of the Bega Strathmerton processed cheese plant ribbon blenders and augers. This was a massive project over six months that was completed on budget and on time in 2010.
Purpose designed and built split CinchSeals® were fitted to 83 shafts on seven ribbon blenders and auger carts that transport the blended cheese to the cooking stage of the process.
The seals ranged in size and design from 50mm up to150mm, and the total cost of the seals was approximately $295,000. To date there have been no seal failures with regular inspection of seals as part of the SOP.
