Plant Engineering for the Food Industry
In companies in the food and beverage industry, it is necessary to fulfill advanced hygienic requirements to prevent possible contamination. These are to be considered during the planning of a production plant.
Although the regulatory requirements for food processing plants are not (currently) as strict as those for pharmaceutical plants, similarly high standards are currently being set in the engineering of a plant for the food industry. Phase-out-capable plants, cleaning options and sterilization capability are just as much a part of the hygiene standards with which compliance is required as the proof of the suitability of materials, risk analyses and the documentation of the complete system, through to the welding certificates and material certificates.
All the plants can be manufactured in modular design, including the control system, so that as far as possible, they can be delivered in pre-assembled, wired and tested form.
