tna makes starch mogul more reliable
tna has upgraded its flagship NID M3000 mogul (image) to improve operational efficiencies and ensure the equipment adheres to the highest hygiene and safety standards. Since its acquisition of confectionery specialist NID, tna has made some considerable investments to accelerate the development process and equip NID’s starch moulding technology with a range of new features that further increase operational reliability, enhance quality control and improve overall system performance.
As part of the latest upgrade, any internal parts of the feeder and stacker that are in regular contact with starch trays are now manufactured in stainless steel for advanced hygiene and consumer safety. In addition, the new range of NID moguls was specifically engineered to achieve full compliance with the EU’s latest Atex directive on the use of equipment in explosive environments. This has resulted in the incorporation of Atex-certified electrical devices and temperature sensors, and the repositioning and redesign of key mechanical components to mitigate the hazards associated with the handling of starch. •
