Food & Beverage

We realize plants for liquid food and beverages for milk & dairy products, mineral water & AFB, oils & fats and flavorings.

Also for the handling of powders and bulk goods, such as sugar, lactose, protein powder, salts, cereals, malt and cereals.

We are familiar with different hygiene standards.

For new processes, we implement your specifications from the laboratory on an industrial scale. Together with you, we gain safety for new processes in our pilot plant station.

We supply process solutions as frame units pre-assembled and tested, complete with MSR technology and interface to your control system.

Site installations are thus reduced to a minimum.
