Material Handling Platform

Project Pelican

Case Study : Project Pelican

Intelect were contracted by KP Snacks to provide a total turn-key solution for a large project.

Prior to the project commencing, members of Intelect’s Electrical and Mechanical team travelled to Germany to assess the equipment and running order of two lines in a different factory that we had been contracted to decommission and relocate to the UK.

The project aim was to install two full process lines for the client, for two of their most popular products. Each line and platform had its own task to achieve within this process, in order for the products to reach the packing hall to be packaged, boxed and shipped.

As well as overseeing the project from a lead CDM role, Intelect were also contracted by KP Snacks to design, fabricate and install a series of hygienic platforms in accordance to BSEN1090. The platform design was developed in collaboration with Daxner to ensure access to their machinery was achieved to the British Standards. The platforms were also built with a hygienic design in mind, to ensure that they were easy to clean and maintain.

The platforms produced during these works included:

  • Material Handling Platform
  • Big Bag Station Platform
  • Allergen Platform
  • Compressor Platform
  • Bespoke Line Platforms

The high standard of work carried out from the design through to the fabrication and installation were shown across each individual platform.

On average, around 30 Intelect employees, across range of capabilities, were working on the site at any one time, along with additional subcontractors, who we were also responsible for.

The entire project was completed to the highest standards and to the expectations of the client, who also complimented us for our management, supervision and support throughout the project.

Tea Blend Control System

Ringtons Tea Blend Control System

Case Study : Ringtons Tea Blend Control System

Intelect were contracted by Ringtons to provide a full turnkey solution from design through to commissioning, in order to replace three existing blend panels with on master panel.

The design and integration of the new Blend Control System was created in order to replace an obsolete control system. The new system is controlled via a Siemens PLC communicating with a Siemens HMI, in order to improve efficiency.

Major features of the project included:

  • Design and Build of New Blender Control Panel
  • System Software and Coding
  • Engineering Site Surveys
  • Non-Intrusive Preliminary Installation Works
  • New Blender Panel Installation
  • Commissioning
  • Removal of Redundant Electrical Equipment

The project was completed within a short time frame to accommodate the client’s production schedule, and to minimise downtime. Installation and commissioning of the system was completed over a weekend by our skilled installation engineers, with prior planning and preparations taking place in advance within our specialised Panel workshop.

Automated Conveyor Systems

For years, Intelect have been designing, manufacturing and installing conveying systems within the material handling field, predominantly to clients in the food industry.

Our years of experience means we have the ability to offer flexible and bespoke solutions to meet your specific requirements, all whilst ensuring the highest standards of hygiene and health and safety.

Through constant innovation, we have been able to evolve the way in which we design and manufacture our conveyors, which means they are not only easy to install, but they are also easy to clean, and therefore maintain. This ensures a much more efficient process, reducing downtime and minimising loss of production.

Our specialised workshops across the UK allow us to complete the majority of work off-site, resulting in a much less invasive process, whilst still allowing clients to be fully involved throughout the entirety of the project.

Our skilled design team, paired with our qualified engineers are able to custom build conveyors and handling systems to meet any length, width, and height that you require.

News & Features

KP Billingham

Intelect and KP Snacks, Teesside

Intelect's John Henderson (Senior Electrical Supervisor) heads up the team of 5 electrical engineers who work on a long term contract at KP’s manufacturing plant on Teesside.

Intelect have been working at the plant since 2000, with John’s team permanently on site since 2005. Their role on the site is split between project, maintenance and repair work to both the production line and the building.

Working alongside KP’s own staff

The factory underwent substantial works when the roof was replaced in 2010, Intelect were heavily involved in this project, installing the switchboard into a new switch room, connecting the electrical and mechanical services to various parts of the line.

Special projects

Alongside the contracted electrical work, Intelect are involved with special projects to increase productivity, safety and efficiency of the food processing and packaging lines. The following video, produced by KP Snacks, shows the inside of their manufacturing plant on Teesside. Below the video we've described projects that Intelect have worked on as part of their ongoing relationship with KP.

Process Monitoring

Process monitoring allows the client to measure the input and output of particular production line, helping to optimise energy conservation and performance.

Working with the KP team, Intelect have installed energy monitors, airflow meters and photocells including the design and manufacture of any brackets, fixings and guards.

Conveyors and robotic systems

Most of the conveyor systems used to transport product around the facility were designed, manufactured and installed by our mechanical and electrical teams. The robotic auto palletisation equipment was purchased from a third party company and installed by Intelect as part of the packaging line.

Access bridges and inspection platforms

Our mechanical team were also involved in the design and installation of stepover, access and inspection platforms, all of which are built in-house to BSEN 1090.

Electric, air and water supply

During the process area roof refurbishment in 2010, Intelect installed:

  • Emergency lighting.
  • Electric supplies for lighting and machines.
  • Airlines for pneumatics actuation.

Additional pipework and air handling units were designed and installed by Intelect to provide:

  • Steam & condensate pipework.
  • Air handling units and extract fans.

The team

John Henderson’s team at KP are self managed and responsible for their own equipment and practices on site.

  • All staff are IPAF accredited.
  • Dressed in all the appropriate PPE for the food industry with internal pockets.
  • Single piece food safe pens.

We recently purchased an additional MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms) and podium scaffolds to reduce the need to use stepladders on site, the podium scaffolds provide a stable and compact platform that allows staff to work comfortably and safely at lower heights. The MEWP's can also fit into tighter spaces and they extend to around 5.5 metres, for heights in excess of this we also keep scissor lifts and boom lifts on site.

Intelect are a multidiscipline company and are able to support the KP team with skills in order for them to achieve their daily activities or project work.
