FOOD MANUFACTURING APPLICATION NOTES & CASE STUDIES

PRODUCTS & SERVICES

Generic ERPs are a poor fit for food manufacturers. With no specific industry focus, implementation times are frustratingly slow and extensive customizations are almost always required. JustFood ERP solves this problem with a system focused on recipe-based manufacturing. This laser focus allows companies to spend less time struggling to make the system work for them and instead devote all their energy to prioritizing the production process, quality management, and the other differentiators that lead to growth.

The regulatory landscape is constantly evolving. Product inspection technology makes it easier to meet current requirements and provide cost effective solutions that can adapt to future needs. METTLER TOLEDO's metal detection and x-ray inspection solutions make it easier to overcome your foreign body detection challenges.

The Schenck Process Vacuum Cleaning range offers a choice of Mobile, Truck / Trailer mounted or central fixed systems to suit every requirement. Removal of dust and spillage by vacuum cleaning maintains a healthy environment and reduces cross contamination caused through disturbance of dust from brushing.

The ROSS Model HSM-405SC-25 is an inline high shear rotor/stator mixing system incorporating SLIM (Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold) Technology. Unlike conventional eductors, the unique SLIM rotor/stator generates a powerful vacuum without the aid of external pumps and pulls powders directly into the mix chamber, promoting instantaneous wet out under high shear conditions. Mounted on a multipurpose skid with load cells, actuated valves and level switches, the pictured HSM-405SC-25 recirculates into a 400-gallon jacketed tank and is controlled from a 15” industrial PC with Windows.

Schenck Process has developed a method to "enhance" the operation of a dilute phase convey system by minimizing the speed of the blower under all operating conditions. EDIP translates the performance of the equipment being used into a tangible conveying velocity set by the user.

The Delta Blower Generation 5 is the synthesis of the successful characteristics developed in previous generations combined with new technical innovations that already meet the market requirements of the future. Aerzener Maschinenfabrik was the first blower manufacturer to design compact units in 1960 and has developed this machine type continuously ever since. Delta Blower Generation 5 is therefore already the 5th generation of AERZEN blower units and represents the successful combination of tradition and innovation.

About 90% of a compressor’s life cycle costs go to energy use*. A huge challenge, especially where ecological demands and global competition requires the globalisation of potential of the whole company. AERZEN is meeting this challenge with energy savings of up to 15%. Which means the investment will pay for itself after only two years, depending on the volume streams and pressures involved. That’s the Delta Hybrid.

AERZEN turbo blowers. Over the decades we have developed these packaged units to technical excellence. In doing so we have acquired expertise that sets standards throughout the world. This is reflected in improved energy efficiency, low life-cycle costs and specially developed core components. To sum it up: it can be seen in every detail of AERZEN’s continuous flow machines.

The single-stage, oil-free screw compressors in the Delta Screw Generation 5 plus series are universal tools. They bundle all the know-how of a world market leader in compressor technology to offer you ‘the user’ maximum efficiency. 

There are many reasons you may need to call AERZEN Rental Division: not just for maintenance and repair, but also to cover unexpected demand. AERZEN Rental Division can provide you with rental units and accessories, as well as individual solutions for research and development, operative leasing and contracting.
