New Pouch Processing Line and Thermal Process Area Automation: Phase III

Location: MS, USA
Time Frame: 2008 – 2009
Total Project Value: >$15M



This project involved the expansion of an existing pouch filling process. A complete sauce, rice and grain processing system capable of supplying two fillers were installed. Danmare developed a new sauce batching methodology.

  • Designed and supplied sauce dosing and storage skid

Specifications included:

  • Pouch handling and auto-loading equipment
  • Mechanical and electrical installation bid documents
