The dairy market in the UK weighs in at £6 billion with dairy farmers producing 14 billion litres of milk per annum. Employing some 80,000 people, milk and its associated products – yoghurt, cheese, creamery products, butter, spreads and flavoured milk drinks all significantly contribute to the UK economy and all need large scale dairy product specific production lines to cope with demand.
FB Chain has extensive experience in designing and manufacturing the attachment chain needed to operate the dairy product production lines. The chain itself is in the latter end of the process, within filling lines where indexing chains and flat top chains are used. Bottle washing, packing, shrink wrapping and pallet transfer are common processes – all requiring the right chain and the right attachment, often custom made, for the application.
