The beverage industry is traditionally an area with particular high demands on hygiene and its related technologies. Impeccable hygiene is needed to maintain the high quality standards and shelf life of the end product, whether it is beer, lemonade, mineral/drinking water, fruit juice or wine and sparkling wine.
For us, process optimisation isn't just a catchword, it’s part of our daily life: from the unpacker, through bottle washer, filler, CIP and syrup room, ProMinent technologies ensure the highest level of efficiency, quality, and operational and product safety.
Optimal hygiene is a prerequisite in the drinks industry to ensure sustainably high quality and a long shelf life for the end product, regardless of whether the plant is producing beer, lemonade, mineral water / table water, fruit juices, wine or sparkling wine. The law demands design-specific optimised cleaning for all surfaces that come into contact with foods and beverages. This makes CIP-cleaning (cleaning in place) essential, in order to avoid dismantling a multitude of individual components.
A continuous disinfection of the filler with an efficient disinfection solution enables this sensitive part of the bottling process to be reliably sterilised. Continuous spraying with appropriate jet systems enables extremely exacting hygiene requirements to be met, meaning that even conventional filling machines can be used to bottle microbiologically sensitive beverages with this application.
ProMaqua accompanies its beverage industry customers from the planning stage through to the commissioning of efficient solutions and systems. For this reason, rinser hygiene forms one of our core areas of focus.
Bottle rinsing machines are continually being developed and improved by manufacturers, particularly with respect to cleaning quality and cost efficiency. By using tried and tested ProMinent designs, these machines can be optimized even more.
The bottle transportation system provides a vital link between the individual machines. Faults during bottle transportation can lead to the whole filling line coming to a standstill. The lubrication of conveyor chains is therefore extremely important.
More and more companies in the food industry store their chemical supplies centrally. Various chemicals are stored in tanks in a separate room from the production area. This type of storage has many advantages
Generally referred to as ECA water, hypochlorous acid is increasingly used in the food industry and drinks industry as a disinfectant. ProMaqua has developed an effective electrolysis process for the production of smart disinfectant ECA water: the Dulco®Lyse.
Capacity range: 8 - 12,000 g/h chlorine dioxide. Max. flow at 0.2 ppm ClO2 metering is 60,000 m³/h.
Chlorine dioxide system for continuous production, metering and monitoring of chlorine dioxide with concentrated chemicals. Bello Zon® CDKc is a ready-to-use convenient system with integrated intrinsically safe pre-dilution station.
Capacity range: 1 to 2,000 g/h chlorine dioxide. Max. flow at 0.2 ppm ClO2 metering is 10,000 m³/h.
Chlorine dioxide system for monitoring and metering chlorine dioxide and diluted chemicals. Maximum output and safety due to special reactor concept. Bello Zon® CDVc can be easily and safely integrated into any water treatment process.
Ozone capacity 70 to 735 g ozone/h
OZONFILT® OZMa represents maximum operational safety with minimal operating costs. The ozone generator is maintenance-free and generates up to 735 g/h of ozone from compressed air or oxygen.
By the use of dosing systems the dosing task becomes increasingly easier. Pre-mounted complete solutions made by ProMinent are immediately available and ready for the use in important applications of dosage. Sensor technology, controllers and metering pumps form a unit with the necessary tanks and are ready for operation without installation work.
We describe the use of measuring and control technologies for fluid dosing as “intelligent dosing”. Using the right measuring and control technology can help to substantially optimize metering of fluid chemicals.
Ozone capacity 5 to 90 g ozone/h
The OZONFILT® OZVa is high-performance and compact. For efficient ozone generation in the medium output range of up to 90 g/h from compressed air or oxygen.
With UV systems Dulcodes, reliable and chemical-free water treatment for disinfection purposes and degradation of unwanted components are possible. Easy installation, low maintenance and a variety of types, result in most economical projects for multiple applications.
Dulcoclean® UF systems are suitable for removing high turbidity peaks, particles and microbiological impurities (bacteria, viruses, parasites). Even with temporary or microbiological contamination after heavy precipitation the systems provide a constant filtrate quality – free of turbidity and pathogens.
Reverse Osmosis is the reversal of the natural osmosis process. This process is used to desalinate aqueous solutions. Using suitable high-performance membranes it is possible today to remove more than 99% of all salts from an aquaeous solution.
Nominal capacity 500 litres to 50 m³
Standardized and customer-specific storage tanks and drip pans of polyethylene, on demand, with accessories e.g. filling devices, heatings for the storage medium, devices for optical and electronic level monitoring, air scrubbers etc.
