Leicestershire-based dairy machinery supplier Machinery World has added a 1,400 litre butter homogeniser to its range of new and used machinery, and will be exhibiting at Dairy Industries Expo, being held in Harrogate 3-5 October.
Machine World’s ROKK RBR1400 butter reworking homogeniser reduces thawing time and optimises consistency, giving customers a high-quality product with improved spreadability and a longer shelf life. With a full stainless-steel construction and improved safety chute, the RBR1400 gives customers full control over the pneumatic force feeder and auger speed, making it easy to achieve a consistent, bespoke product every time, the company says.
It joins the stable of new and used machinery spanning the full range of processing needs for the dairy industry, from separation through to storage and packaging.
This one-stop-shop approach to processing gives customers a whole host of benefits, as Tim Darvill, Machinery World’s head of UK sales and procurement explains: “We can knowledgeably support and advise our customers on any aspect of their machinery needs, because we understand the processing cycle from beginning to end. This means that whatever piece of machinery they wish to replace, we can assess, recommend and supply options to suit their needs.
“We always have an excellent selection of new and used machinery in stock, and contacts around the world enable us to quickly source an alternative if that will be the best fit for the customer. Combine this with the support available from our team of expert engineers and the thousands of spare parts we have on site through our sister company, Dairy Bits, we can take the headache out of any situation.”
Darvill is a chartered engineer and joined Machinery World three and a half years ago, having spent many years working for large, blue-chip companies including Dairy Crest and Britvic Pepsi.
He was attracted to Machinery World because of its customer-centric approach, he says. “We listen and respond to the customer’s specific needs and requirements from a technical, practical, and budget focused perspective, making informed recommendations that really work for their business.
“This also enables us to identify new applications and build machines which offer a versatile range of solutions, like the ROKK CCM200 cooker, cooler or mixer. The CCM range offers a wide range of usages across many industries including dairy, plant based and food processing and is available in sizes from a five-litre pilot plant through to 1,200 litres for larger batches.”
He was joined last year by Arun Jacob, who has taken over customer contact across the north of the country to ensure every customer continues to receive the Machinery World hallmark of a bespoke and personalised service.
Also an engineer, with an M.Sc from Nottingham University and MBA from Strathclyde University, Jacon has worked in the food and dairy processing equipment industry for over 15 years and finds the Machinery World approach both educational and rewarding.
“Machinery World is the only company I know in this sector which puts the extra effort in to go and visit every customer, no matter where they are based, or what their budget is,” Jacob says. “No two client operations are the same, so this means I’m not only able to give them the best possible advice for their bespoke needs – I’m also constantly expanding my own knowledge and expertise.”
