Food industry

Be our partner because we know; because we can

The food industry is highly influenced by strict legal regulations. At the end of day, we all need guarantees on the food we consume. Therefore, these norms are a major issue for us when developing specific solutions for this industry. Not only in terms of materials that guarantee non-toxic final consumer products, but also in terms of the hygienic design, corrosion resistant of the materials to be used in the cleaning areas.

Solutions that go, on and on and on...as your process does

We have solutions ready to fulfil the challenging requirements of continuous 24/7 operation. The gold standard for measuring manufacturing productivity. Long-life components to keep up with non-stop production processes, taking care of a good maintenance.

Our team of experts, distributed amongst 83 countries, boast the specific expertise to support all the above daily challenges with either standard or customised solutions that are supported by our five technical centres, two of them located in Europe.

Wet areas

Wet areas require elements which ensure durability and a clean design to wash them down easily. Furthermore, hygienic requirements, and food safety itself, demand them to offer high corrosion resistance to environmental agents such as moisture, dirt, chemicals from the actual food.

Maintenance operation (OEE)

In order to minimise, or avoid, maintenance and repair costs, as well as production losses due to downtimes, a high level of system availability is essential. Therefore, we can offer components and solutions that you can rely on at any time, even at high clock frequencies and in continuous operation.

Energy-efficient components

One of the cornerstones within energy efficiency is, indeed, the “Use efficiently designed components.”

Our R&D engineers have developed a range of solutions that offer the same performance, but involves a smart design that translates both into efficiency and lower bills.

 

Others

In the food industry it is essential to fulfill strict regulations that govern daily food production.

Please find below a selection of our highlighted solutions for the food industry for use in general terms. From FDA-compliant components, to elements that will ensure good air quality in your facility.
