I wanted to know if any one would have any suggestions for a problem at our facility. I work for a nut processing facility where we create honey coated nuts by producing them in small batches in copper kettles. For the longest time we were measuring the honey/glucose using disposal containers where after one use they would be disposed of.
We recently had a major customer do a tour of the facility and deemed the plastic containers a non-conformance as it is a potential chemical hazard. They wanted us to switch to reusable, measurable containers. The issue is the actual measuring of the honey/glusose. They honey has a tendency to stick to the measuring cup. As well, actually measuring the honey out of the big container is awkward. This is an issue because the kettle operators literally have a minute to add the honey/glucose before the batch burns. They can't stand there waiting for the honey to pour out.
Also, the measuring cups are just leaving a mess behind.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
