Acquisition of a new TP-180 F dough mixer and QLSC 2' lift dough divider with an electrical power of 11 kW

Joy Food International, a Moroccan agro-industrial SME specialized in manufacturing all types of industrial breads, requested funding and technical assistance from the Green Value Chain (GVC) programme for its investment in new equipment.

To meet its customers’ demand, Joy Food International decided to invest in a project to install a new TP-180 F dough mixer and QLSC 2′ lift dough divider with an electrical power of 11 kW. The machine acquisition investment amounted to € 87,444.

The two machines are used to prepare the dough that goes into and completes the tortilla bread production line.

The dough divider is capable of folding large quantities of product through the 40 kg stainless steel hopper. All moving mechanical parts are lubricated in a closed loop: the lubricating oil of the machine cannot meet the dough being processed, thus guaranteeing perfect safety and ease of use even if the machine has functional problems. A variable speed drive is available to adjust the productivity of the machine per hour. The new mixer is also equipped with a variable speed drive.

This project aims to improve the company’s productivity by modernizing the production equipment. With this new installation, the company benefits from an increase in production capacity while optimizing its energy consumption. This investment also allows an energy saving of 39 Mwh/year as well as a CO2 emission reduction of 22.31 tCO2eq/year.
