National Bulk Equipment, Inc.

National Bulk Equipment, Inc. (NBE) designs, engineers, manufactures, and installs a complete line of fully integrated and automated bulk material handling systems (http://www.nbe-inc.com/equipment.php), as well as a full line of automated product recovery systems for dry and wet packaged contents and packaging materials (http://www.nbe-inc.com/productsaver.php). NBE bulk material handling systems and product recovery systems are designed and built for sanitary, and non-sanitary, processing and packaging applications. Where sanitary systems are necessary, NBE sanitary-specific systems design, materials of construction, and workmanship combine to ensure the system delivers product safety, optimal compliance, and maximum process efficiency (http://www.nbe-inc.com/occ/). NBE sanitary bulk material handling equipment, and sanitary product recovery systems are built to meet the FDA cGMP definition for cleanability; and, therefore enable thorough cleaning and validation (http://www.nbe-inc.com/sanitary.php). Built on an NBE structural and controls infrastructure, the process sequence of an NBE bulk material handling system or product recovery system operates across an integrated, application-specific chassis; with all automation and control functions compliant to U.S. and IEC/ISO standards and centralized to enable standardized, system-wide data reporting. The NBE structural and controls infrastructure provides the basis for: increasing total packaging line process efficiency, reducing the total cost of operation relative to the common design of bolt-together, divergent ‘islands’ of equipment; and also works to shorten cleaning time targets, reduce labor allocation for cleaning and validation, minimize consumables use, and simplify verification of HACCP plans and GMP.

The ProductSaver® line of product recovery systems provides automated recovery of packaged dry or wet product and packaging that may be off-spec, mis-labeled, overruns, unsafe, or otherwise, unsalable. ProductSaver systems remove, and separate, packaged contents from its packaging, enabling residual re-sale, reuse, or disposal of recovered contents; and recycling, or disposal, of packaging material. The pursuit of sustainability improvements and reduction of landfill use have made a priority of safe and efficient recovery of packaged product and packaging materials.
