Food Processing

The food processing covers a wide variety of production processes and numerous filtration applications for classification, separation, filtration and dewatering of food products. We make baskets for centrifuges, metal filter elements, baskets, filter plates, filter presses and other filtration products. With our technology we provide numerous advantages over wire mesh, perforated plates and wedge wire.

Hygiene - Most filtration elements use a support construction to strengthen their element. This construction is often the source of bacterial growth and will accumulate filth over time (despite back-flush or scraper technology). All our elements are made from a single sheet of metal, without the use of a support construction, thus eliminating the chance for bacteria to grow or filth to accumulate.

High open area - We can cut our slots closer to each other because we bring minimum force and heat into our material. This way we create an high open area compared to other production methods such as punching, laser cutting or wedge wire. Thus more filtration (and production) capacity with the same equipment. 

Long life time - The elements are robust and without a welded construction. This is why they are very useful in applications with high mechanical stresses such as centrifuges and shakers.

Excellent cleaning properties - Because we make conical perforations in the metal sheets, the contamination will not get stuck in the metal sheet. It will either be retained at the surface or pass through. Furthermore, our elements have a smooth surface for back-flush and scraper self-cleaning systems.
