tna stand S1-A4, Gulfood Manufacturing 2014, Dubai, UAE, 9-11 November, 2014

Integrated packaging and processing solutions provider tna will present its range of high performance total systems at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing. Underlining the importance of the Middle East region, tna will launch the tna intelli-weigh 0328 omega multi-head twin scale and demonstrate for the first time the benefits that food processing equipment manufacturer FOODesign’s cryo-jet® ambient & chilled air cooling systems can bring to production lines. Experts from tna’s global team will demonstrate the complete choice of solutions, including the tna intelli-flav® OMS 5 seasoning system and the tna robag® FX 3ci high speed vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) bagger.

At Gulfood Manufacturing,tna will release for the first time globally its new tna intelli-weigh 0328 omega multi-head twin scale. Twin configuration packaging systems provide the lowest cost of ownership of any scale due to the reduced footprint between baggers. The new tna intelli-weigh 0328 omega twin scale takes that to a new level of performance with up to 350 bags per minute.

The tna intelli-flav® OMS 5 system delivers the ultimate in flexibility for on-machine seasoning (OMS) applications, offering consistent coverage and flavour for both wet and dry seasoning. Fully integrated with both oil spray and flavour injection systems, the tna intelli-flav® OMS 5 system provides total control of adhesion and fast flavour changes for snack lines.

Delivering unrivalled throughput of up to 250 bpm, the tna robag® FX 3ci high speed VFFS packaging machine offers production flexibility in a compact, easy-to-clean system that is suitable for a wide variety of products. Also on show is the tna roflo® HM 3 conveyor, a horizontal motion distribution system whose low force operation minimises product loss, offering speed and direction control to optimise performance. Particularly suited to heavy coated products as seasoning does not build up on the pans, the tna roflo® HM 3 has an easy-to-clean design to help manufacturers comply with strict HACCP and QA standards and reduce waste. Visitors to the stand can also see the tna roflo® VM 3 vibratory motion conveyor, which gently, yet rapidly transports more fragile products, such as snacks and confectionery, minimising the risk of product breakage and rejects.

The tna hyper-detect® 5 metal detector is the world’s first non-symmetrical balanced coil metal detector with an in-built conical aperture. Able to detect ferrous contaminants from 0.8mm to 0.9mm, non-ferrous pieces up to 1.0mm and non-magnetic stainless steel from 1.0mm to 1.2mm, the tna hyper-detect® 5 metal detector greatly reduces the risk of contaminants entering the value chain, safeguarding consumer safety and the company’s reputation.

For the first time, visitors to the stand will also be able to experience FOODesign’s innovative cryo-jet® ambient & chilled air cooling systems. Cooling up to ten times faster than forced or natural convection cooling, the patented air impingement technology can be used to cool a variety of food products quickly and efficiently, while maintaining critical product properties including appearance, taste and shape.

General manager for tna Middle East, Mukul Shukla, said: “There is great growth potential in the Middle East food and packaging industry and tna has much to offer in terms of technical expertise, enabling manufacturers to boost productivity, while delivering the highest quality standards in food safety.”
