Our engineers are EHEDG trained and can assure a hygienic tank design with optimal cleanability.
The shelves are filling up with an ever more varied selection of drinks. Fresh juices and sport, energy and protein drinks are becoming increasingly important. The processing of the ingredients for these products requires specialist equipment, whereby the product characteristics always need to be taken into account. Whether you want to heat up, cool, mix or store your product, Gpi can supply you with the best tanks and equipment for your production line.
Gpi has a lot of experience when it comes to building tanks and equipment for fruit juices, liquor, dairy products, beer or other drinks and concentrates. As a result, we are able to give the right advice on heating and cooling of products, on building tanks under pressure (PED/AD2000) in order to preserve freshness, and collaborate with you in order to arrive at the correct finish of the tank for hygienic purposes. In addition, we have good working relationships with all reputable suppliers for the right choice of agitators.
By having engineering, production and quality control in-house, we are able to supervise quality to the greatest extent possible and guarantee you solutions which satisfy the most stringent requirements in terms of hygiene, product longevity, safety and operating convenience, for both liquids and solids. Naturally, we adhere to international standards and regulations, and if required we can also manufacture our equipment according to EHEDG guidelines.
We can supply the agitator as well as the tank. Gpi has a good working relationship with all reputable agitator suppliers for problem-free processing and assembly.
As a standard, we give our food-grade tanks an internal roughness of Ra 0.8. If desired, this can be increased to Ra 0.4 and the tank can be electropolished (EP).
For processes such as pasteurisation and fermentation, heating and cooling of the tank are crucial. Ensure the correct combination of heating/cooling capabilities and insulation of the tank in order to heat or cool your product within the desired time frame. Let Gpi know directly what heating/cooling capacity you require, and we will collaborate with you in order to arrive at the most efficient solution, whether this concerns a dimple, a double wall or a half pipe.
