many years conveyor and general have been closely associated
with the meat processing industry, with a range of specialised
handling equipment, this has covered rendering plant, under
kill floor waste and processing equipment — overhead meat
rail fabrication to carton and tote box conveyors and pallet
conveyors recently cage have completed some very large auto
flash freezer conveyor plant. The consultants to the meat industry
have for some time been working towards the identification of
the meat on your plate back to the farm that produced it .
C&GE have been assisting in the design of
equipment to enable this tracking and minimising cross contamination
in the abattoirs. Many problems relate to automatic routing
and tracking of the carcasses to the boning rooms, other problems
relate to the after packing maturation and the use of “food
caps” for both maturation and repacking.
Large 1000 head a day complexes require automation
and with different maturation times etc large volumes of bins
have to be stored and selected automatically as required.
CAGE has overcome some of these problems in conjunction with
the consultants and the implications for automated pre-packaged
food warehouses are now ready for the industry.
C&GE is in the forefront of these developments.
Food processing and treatment of by products requires special
equipment to comply with the environmental aspects in today’s
modern society, it is no longer acceptable to pollute in any
form and the processing and treatment require new technologies
to render waste safe for disposal C&GE has assisted in the
development of Thermal Desorption for polluted ground in conjunction
with the Australian Government Australian Defence Industries
ADI, the thermal destruction of waste with Dioxin adsorption
equipment with rotary indirect furnaces is one area that C&GE
has relevant experience in the conceptual design and prototype
