Handling and conveying systems to optimise productivity

No one appreciates downtime, so any conveying issues and handling requirements are treated as key factors affecting a plant’s productivity, maximising its effectiveness. The IMA Coffee Petroncini engineering department devotes much attention to ensuring maximum efficiency connecting one process to another in the processing facility. Appropriate conveying solutions are crucial to safeguard product integrity and optimise productivity and it can guarantee the highest preservation of the quality of the product, avoiding any product contamination thanks to the Hygienic Design specifications. Petroncini’ solutions include mechanical and pneumatic conveying equipment in pression or in suction, bucket elevators, chain conveyors. Each solution is designed to suit the plant.

Green Coffee Handling and Conveying Highlights

Bucket elevators suitable for gentle vertical and horizontal handling: the most cost-effective solution for the short distances.
Mechanical chain conveyors for the highest hygienic transport and cost-effectiveness in the long distances.
Pneumatic conveying in pression for processing high quantity raw coffee in the long distances, with minimum maintenance costs.
Pneumatic conveying in aspiration to handle the coffee gently, with an automatic product speed control.
Rotary distributors to handle the coffee during the process in the most efficient way, either to diverter it to different storaging station or into different storing cells.
Special dosing devices for the green bean unloading from the silos in the most effective and precise way.
Space optimisation as a very determining keyword of a green coffee plant.


The optimisation of the space is a very determining key factor since the beginning of the engineering studies, and the solution applied to the dosing and unloading process from the silos often is the keystone of the entire project. The special dosing device LINE-S has been engineered and developed by Petroncini for maximise the energy-efficiency and the cost-effectiveness in some plant’ layout conditions.

LINE-S is an effective solution for the green bean unloading from the silos and, in a minimum amount of space, can collect several accessories for the product loading, dosing and conveying, combining sensors for the control of the system. Due to the less space footprint compared to other common valves, the using of the LINE-S dosing valves allow to save a lot of vertical space, so that it is possible to earn meter hight for each silo, corresponding to an additional storaging capacity.
