FOOD & BEVERAGES

Process technologies for tomorrow.

FOOD & BEVERAGES

The food industry is one of Hosokawa Micron's key business sectors, where we continuously invest in further developing technologies, expertise and services. Our efforts and investments have led to a unique range of powder processing technologies for mixing, drying and instant agglomeration. These technologies are available for development work in R&D environments to scale up pilot plants, up to full-scale production plants.

Product safety, process reliability and equipment cleanability are important aspects in selecting and designing food processing equipment. The system design and selected equipment will have an impact on your product quality, daily operation and operational cost. When we design and manufacture your equipment or system, we always keep these aspects in mind.

Our design philosophy for food applications: Innovative, Simple, Reliable, Visible, Cleanable and avoid dead spots.

Smart equipment design and first class test facilities can help you meet tomorrow's demands for global food processing. If you are looking for the right partner to support you in setting up new production lines for mixing, drying, instant agglomeration or develop new process applications, don't hesitate to contact us.

Here are some typical food applications where our process technologies are used:
