Global provider of used process plants and process equipment International Process Plants (IPP) has announced the availability of a detergent plant along with the filling and packaging line, for sale.
The plant comprises a 150 million lb/yr formulation, filling and packaging line for gel detergent products.
In 2000, the detergent line underwent major upgrades including the installation of a depalletizing robot and a new color system.
The detergent formulation line of the plant is centered around two 1,600 gallon soap crutchers, which can feed up to seven liquid and two solid raw materials.
Up to 420,000 lbs of product is stored in three stainless steel soap tanks. The color mix system feeds an in-line system that adds colors and fragrances to the finished product at the filling operation of the filling and packaging line.
Depending upon the bottle size, the filling line runs at about 20 cases per minute and includes bottle guides for four sizes of 45, 65, 75 and 120oz.
