Processing and producing food products requires particular sensitivity. Extreme care is necessary, especially concerning the hygiene of work processes. Accordingly, the laws, directives and standards governing the requirements are very strict with the aim of maximum food safety.
AVENTICS has expertise in designing hygienic devices that ensure that the foodstuffs currently produced are not contaminated, even with adhering food residue or microorganisms.
Compliance with high hygiene requirements extends the devices' service life and reduces maintenance effort considerably. The result: Production costs decline and efficiency increases.
The solutions that AVENTICS offers for pneumatic automation in the food industry are based on the demanding requirements specified by, for example, the organization EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group) in its subgroup Design Principles. Furthermore, the legal provisions of EN 1672-2:2005 and ISO 14159:2002 are implemented as standards.
From compressed air preparation to the actuator – complete pneumatic automation for the food industry. You can find all the products in our product catalog.
The legislation that deals with food safety in production is immense. The specific aspects of individual standards that apply to different applications must be decided on a case-by-case basis. We recommend an assessment by our experts, who deal with these questions every day. We have compiled an overview of key institutions, authorities, and manufacturers, as well as the most informative journals.
Practical guidance on hygienic engineering aspects of manufacturing safety is provided by EHEDG.
A non-profit, non-governmental organization for standards development, product certification, etc.
A non-profit association representing equipment manufacturers, processors, regulatory sanitarians, etc.
Application example: packaging production
Packaging liquid products places maximum demands on cleanliness. For one of our customers, we worked in collaboration to develop an application-specific packaging system that uses environmentally friendly packaging material and includes an automatic filling station: It's easy to set up, requires little maintenance, and can be operated by only one employee.
