Consumer Products

The Consumer Products industry supplies items such as batteries, laundry and dish detergent, soap, and pet foods.

This industry is continuously searching for means to increase production, reduce manufacturing costs, improve product quality, or develop innovative products offering a competitive edge.  In order to meet these demands, producers must design the material handling equipment to provide consistent, reliable feed and maintain consumer product quality from formulation through final packaging.  Market success can quickly degrade due to a recall, series of customer complaints, or poor product performance.

Common Consumer Products Industry Challenges

Many consumer products, such as detergent or soap, can be prone to poor flow due to arching or ratholing during routine storage and handling.  These flow problems can result in powder caking, production delays, increased operator intervention, or product losses.  Some products like dry cell battery cathode blends may be free-flowing, but have a high tendency to segregate.  Segregation of the final blend components can have an adverse effect upon batch quality, product uniformity, and final product performance.
