New production processes
from laboratory result to operational scale
Have you developed a new product on a laboratory scale and in doing so have developed new techniques? Would you like to scale up and automate manual processes performed on a pilot system to a large industrial operation?
In cases such as these, our engineering team can provide valuable assistance with process development. Our target group consists of manufacturing companies from the brewing and beverage industry, dairy and (liquid) food or bioethanol and biotechnology sectors.
We break down your process conceptually into smaller sub-processes or “unit operations”. This approach enables us to thoroughly understand new processes and scale them up. The material properties of new products, such as their viscosity, behavior during extraction, mass transfer coefficients or particle size distributions, are needed for calculations but may often not be available. We determine these properties in our own technical center or with the aid of contacts in our network of universities and institutes.
Our approach to such projects is grounded in our extensive knowledge of equipment manufacturing and mechanical engineering, hygienic design, control and automation technology as well as project management. These analytical and process data allow us to generate multi-disciplinary, reliable and economically feasible process solutions.
„We do not derive our motivation solely from satisfying our customers, but we also seek to inspire them with innovative solutions.“
