ABOUT US

Our History

     D. Lamar Christy founded Christy Machine Company in 1953 with a simple flour duster for bread lines. It was quickly discovered that the Christy Duster could be successfully used to dispense a much wider variety of ingredients. In a few short years Christy Dusters were in use across the food industry. Mr. Christy retired in 1986 and Randy Fielding, then Vice President and long-time employee, became Christy Machine's President and Owner. Mr. Fielding oversaw the development of several new Christy models, such as the Recipro-Grater and Flex-Top, that were able to handle ingredients that fell outside the range of the Christy Duster. During this time Christy Machine was also producing conveyors and custom equipment on a small scale. In 2016 Mr. Fielding retired and our current President and Owner Alexander Robinson took the helm. Mr. Robinson started with Christy Machine in 2006 and has served as a polisher, welder/fabricator, CAD operator, Foreman, and Vice President before coming to his current position. In early 2017 Mr. Robinson decided to re-brand Christy Machine Company to Christy Machine & Conveyor and began to offer conveyors and custom equipment as part of the standard Christy catalog.

What We Do

   Christy Machine & Conveyor designs and produces automated food manufacturing equipment. We offer a wide range of products and services, specializing in Ingredient Depositors. Our offerings range from single depositors or conveyors to complete system solutions at every level of automation. We have over 60 years of experience answering our customer's food production needs with unique, customized solutions. We also offer a consultation service for those customers who need assistance with the design and layout of new line or facilities.

How We Work

     We are a "standard custom" shop meaning that we offer a catalog of standard, baseline equipment that is then customized to fit each customer's needs. Our customers complete and send our Request/Order Form (located in the                        section). For Depositor-Only projects we also require a sample of the customer's ingredient material so we can perform a test in our lab to determine the correct machine model and setup required. A demo video is then sent to the customer along with a quote for review and approval. For larger or specialized projects, we will conduct an engineering visit at the customer's facility to review the project location and ensure the accuracy of our system design

The Christy Duster has been at the forefront of ingredient depositing since 1953. Expanding upon the simplicity of the original operating system, the modern Dry Material Depositor models offer top of the line precision depositing and sanitary design for customers at all levels of automation. Our machines can be equipped with our standard base line configuration for single ingredients, our Quick-Change system for multiple individual ingredients, or Multi-Head configuration for simultaneous depositing of multiple ingredients.

The Christy Recipro-Grater (model 2-RG) is designed to answer the problem of handling ingredients containing medium-to-high moisture content such as cheese and onion. Utilizing a unique reciprocating Grid Die design, the 2-RG operating system is specifically designed to defeat the common bridging and clumping problems that arise with traditional depositors with rotary shaft designs. Christy offers a variety of Grid Die designs to accommodate a wide variety of material sizes and textures ranging between watery re-hydrated onion, oily bacon bits, soft crumbled egg, and most streusel recipes.

Ingredients Handled

The Christy Flex-Top (model FT) was developed to overcome the challenges of depositing moist powdered ingredients such as powdered cheeses and crumbled graham crackers. These high-moisture granulates are prone to adhesion (bridging) and material deformation when introduced to the friction found in the majority of depositing systems. The Flex-Top utilizes a unique Flex-Plate operating system that greatly reduces friction-causing "hot spots". Our skeletonized internal components deliver a consistent deposit rate while gently agitating and tumbling the material to maintain product consistency

The Christy Salter (Model SR) is the ultimate in precision salt depositing. Specifically engineered to deposit medium to super-fine granular salt, the Model SR provides consistent, reliable performance for toppings and inclusions. The enclosed operating system is built to withstand the inherent challenges of wear and

corrosion that are always present with granular salt. The Model ST also features a bolt-together design with minimal welding, further reducing the chance of rust. This model is also equipped

with only one control parameter making it very simple to operate.
