  • Line Integration Concepts for Food & Beverage Lines

    In today’s challenging environment, integration of production and packaging lines is the key to increase productivity. Many existing production and packaging lines consist of stand-alone machines, which are coupled pure mechanically by conveyor belts and sensors. This lack of integration creates unnecessary downtimes, complicates efficient diagnostics and reduces the efficiency of the line. This explains why there is a great demand for integration concepts that do not interfere with the internal automation of the individual machines but still allow comprehensive line integration on the basis of standardized data interfaces and network connections.

  • Achieving Food Sterility With Steam Infusion UHT Treatment

    UHT, or Ultra-High Temperature, treatment uses high temperature for a short time to kill micro-organisms in a food or beverage product. It is widely used in the dairy industry where products can easily lose nutritional value, flavor, and appearance as micro-organisms multiply. These organisms thrive at certain temperatures, but if they are not present in a product, it can be stored for many months without the need for refrigeration. This state is known as “commercial sterility.”
