Sealing

When it comes to food and beverage you need to be absolutely certain that no unwanted substances can enter the process. Our product range consists of certified gasket and sealing materials that have been proven suitable for use in food and beverage processes (FDA, EU, ISO). Gaskets and seals in food and beverage applications need to tolerate different kinds of media, such as milk fat of dairy products or phosphoric acid found in cola drinks. In addition, the gaskets and seals need to withstand the cleaning and sterilization processes that are characterise the food and beverage industry.

Valves

Valves in the food and beverage industry can be divided into two groups: valves in contact with the food product and valves used in the background processes. It is critically important that the valves in contact with the food product form a seamless and smooth link with the rest of the production line to prevent any opportunity for the medium to get trapped in the line and to eliminate any potential breeding grounds for bacteria to grow. Operating pressures are lower compared to other industry segments, and the strongest chemicals that food and beverage valves need to withstand are involved in the cleaning and sterilization processes.

Calibration and instrumentation

Food and beverage producers need to adhere to strict hygiene and quality regulations while keeping their production agile and efficient. This requires the measuring and monitoring of processes. As the quality and safety of the food product depends on the accuracy of the measuring equipment and regular measurements, the reliability of the equipment needs to be ensured with calibration.
