International Biscuit Ltd – a member of Seaprod Group – is synonymous with Jamaican favorites such as Butterkist Cookies and Snackables. With markets in USA, Canada, Caribbean and the UK, IBL is quickly building a global reputation for quality and affordability. The IBL plant in Jamaica produces a wide assortment of snack food products. This application is specifically designed for an extruded cheese snacks application.

Bucket elevators are tied to the overall volume needing to be conveyed. It is a simple function of the targeted weight to move and the density of that product.  When the product density is very light (2 lb/ft3 in this case) any fluctuation in density greatly effects the volume being conveyed.

This Ryson model Z-200 stainless steel Bucket Conveyor will be running at 40 fpm. It is ideally suited to convey the 450 ft3/hr of extruded cheese snacks. It will rise to an elevation of 12ft with enough flexibility to adjust to those critical fluctuations in density.
