Processing and liquid handling equipment covers a wide range of equipment, depending on the ingredients used and the finished products produced.

Dry products such as cereal have one set of requirements, while beverages have an entirely different set. Finished dry products that include wet ingredients during production need a combination of equipment designed to handle both wet and dry ingredients.

When working with dry ingredients, concerns such as dust management and explosion control are top of mind. Wet ingredients create challenges such as clogged nozzles or sprayers. The cleaning, sanitation, and cross-contamination requirements are also different for each type of ingredient. For example, allergen control requires one strategy for dry ingredients that can produce dust, while wet ingredients may be sticky or hard to remove from surfaces.

Processing equipment specifications and features are also driven by automation and data management goals. Equipment throughout the production process can report production data, maintenance requirements, and performance benchmarks to allow processors to understand and manage operations in an efficient manner.

Processing equipment with a wide range of safety features, including blade guards, covers for moving parts, and lift assists to reduce strain can also help protect workers. Equipment can also meet different cleaning requirements, such as clean in place (CIP) or clean out of place (COP).

In this section, you’ll find a wide selection of equipment to meet the specific needs of your ingredients and finished products. Among them are mixers, slicing machines, spray equipment, liquid fillers, and many more, for products ranging from meat to beverages to cheese.

Whatever your production demands, you’ll find equipment to meet them here.
