Hygiene-compatible components for the food industry

As early as in the planning and set-up phases, it can be prevented that germs are gaining a foothold in factories for food production. Significant improvements to hygiene management can be made with components engineered for hygiene compatibility. Solvaro, the metal components manufacturer, supplies a number of companies whose top priority is hygiene. Designed on a project-specific basis, the product range includes stainless-steel ageing racks for cheese, dishwasher filters and additional components for industrial plant engineering.

Germs: keep out!

Cheese production, for example, requires an experienced hand. The ‘good’ microorganisms require perfect conditions. Otherwise, they will not be able to do their job and help the cheese ripen. At the same time, contaminants must be prevented from gaining a foothold. With a hygiene-compatible facility, cheese producers can easily master these challenges. Solvaro manufactures ageing racks for Studer Maschinenbau AG, a particularly high quality supplier to the cheese industry. The ageing racks have an Rv-5-8 perforation, which allows the excess liquid to drain while exposing the cheese to enough air to allow the microorganisms to do their work. The ageing racks have a diameter of 854 cm and are made of 1.4301 stainless steel, which provides ideal hygiene properties and prevents the build-up of germs. And there is no risk of rust.

Flexible and quick in small quantities

The production of cheese – and many other foods – requires highly specialised machines and facilities that are custom-engineered for the production process. As a logical consequence, companies need small quantities, and quick turnarounds are common. Creativity is as important as know-how when developing components like these. At Solvaro, cross-sectoral knowledge is often the key factor in finding the ideal solution. Solvaro CEO Gerhard Bullinger is pleased to have satisfied customers in the food industry: ‘The industry is a plus for our developers, and we have organised our production facilities to produce small quantities flexibly and quickly.’
