Process technologies for tomorrow.


Flavours are used in almost every kind of food- and feed processed product in order to enhance its natural taste or to create a particular taste. It's obviously vital to maintain a constant taste. However this is often easier said than done. The composition of a flavour can be very complex, therefore requiring a very high level of accuracy when blending the ingredients. Hosokawa Micron provides the flavour processing industry with low-shear and gentle blending equipment, offering optimal accuracy and consistency to ensure high quality flavour blends.

Nauta® conical screw blender

The Nauta conical screw blender is specially designed for segregative, free-flowing powders and pastes. It’s named after Mr. J.E. Nauta, who developed the first conical Nauta blender in 1939. The Nauta conical screw blender is famous for its low-intensity blending and it's especially suited for delicate products and processes where very accurate results are required and is synonymous with gentle mixing.
