Simon Frères - Leader in the field of buttery equipment
Experts in butter processing since 1856


Butter pumping is realized with a PBC type pump with a sinusoidal rotor specially designed to avoid damaging the product.

Butter silos

To allow the continuous butter production and the products packaging on various packaging lines, SIMON FRÈRES has developed a range of butter silos.

The STRO butter silos from 1 to 3 tons of butter.

The ST silos for capacity from 500 kg to 10 tons of butter.

The SO silos for butter plants equipped with traditional churns.

The main advantages:
  • Very low auger speed to avoid damaging the product texture.
  • Specially designed feeding tunnel to optimize feeding of the butter pump.
  • Strong construction with a very easy and economical maintenance.
  • Carefully designed to ensure hygiene and product security.
  • Wide range of capacities.

Reworking tanks, feeding units

Our SR reworking tanks associated with a positive pump are designed for the combined reworking, feeding, pumping & dosing of temperate products blocks with high viscosity. These reworking tanks have a buffer capacity dedicated to both reworking and texturizing work. Our installations assure a constant output and dosing.

The SR 170 feeding unit is designed to continually feed or dose fresh or unfrozen butter, margarine or pasty products from blocks up to 25 kg in size. Product temperature must be between + 4°C and + 10°C.

Main advantages:
  • Wide range of capacity: 300 kg to 6 t/h
  • Discontinuous / continuous running.
  • Reduction of the production costs: increase of capacity, energy saving, productivity improvement, reduced labour costs.
  • Carefully designed to ensure hygiene and product security.
  • Automatic cleaning in place without any dismantling
  • Strong construction with a very easy and economical maintenance.
  • SIMON FRÈRES can supply stand-alone machines or a complete production line with full automation designed around the customers' applications.
  • Automatic / manual feeding in pasty blocks from 5 to 30 kg.
  • Low quantity of product inside the line.
  • Can be used with all types of positive pumps.
  • Possibility of dosing by weight loss for increased accuracy.
