Farleygreene has been one of the main sieving providers in the UK since 1976. Based in Hampshire they serve some of the largest food and pharmaceutical companies in the world, and their network of international distributors currently sells to over 22 countries around the globe.
Given their main workforce based at their UK factory is made up of just 26 employees, Farleygreene continues to plow through the industry and is on course to become one of the global leading providers of sieving equipment. Farleygreene was recently recognized for their international exports at the PPMA (Processing and Packaging Machinery Association) Group Awards last year where they won Exporter of the Year 2019.
This success can be attributed to their customer-oriented approach which enabled the development of one of the most effective circular vibratory sieves on the market. Whilst remaining at its core a high functioning check sieve, the Slimline range has been continuously developed over recent years to meet changing customer requirements, especially from the food and pharmaceutical industries. Consequently, the Slimline range holds a competitive edge ranking high on overall machine quality and flow rates achieved.
Farleygreene operates their factory under strict ISO 9001 quality guidelines, ensuring that every machine has been checked against their Quality Management System before it leaves their premises. Additionally, their machinery is made in the UK making them part of the Made in Britain campaign that promotes and contributes to UK manufacturing.
The Slimline range is designed to be gravity fed as part of a continuous production line, or stand-alone on mobile or static frames supplied by Farleygreene. Different connection types are available suited to various integrations with mixers, IBC containers, rotary valves, big bag dischargers, and screw conveyors. The Slimline range is offered in four different sizes to meet various customer requirements. Pneumatic lifting and lowering systems are available on larger models to protect user’s safety whilst providing ample access to the mesh screen to be visually inspected or removed for cleaning and mesh replacements. For factories with limited room, different styles of vision inspection ports are offered.
As well as ticking several boxes for performance and integration, Farleygreene also adheres to strict requirements in place for the food and drink industries. Their Slimline range is designed largely with hygiene in mind as their crevice-free design provides little opportunity for bacteria build-up, it is also easy to take apart for cleaning, tool-free, so downtime for factories is kept to a minimum.
The Slimline range is also available with the following:
• Full ATEX certification
• Proof of compliance with EC regulation 1935/2004, FDA and CE certified components
• Metal detectable components
• A wide range of finishes including ViwateQ® finish
• Ultrasonic upgrade to reduce clogging and accelerate the material flow
• Full spares and accessories for replacement or to keep in stock
Additionally, the Slimline sieve is available with a pneumatic/pressure adaptation or sack tip station integration, again in various sizes designed to suit your set up.
To continue to serve their food and pharmaceutical customers in high demand during the Coronavirus pandemic, Farleygreene continues to remain open and operational.
