The world of process technology

In March, for us in Cologne, the paramount focus will be a group of particularly demanding beverages: at the Anuga FoodTec, Krones is spotlighting process technology for milk, tea and juice.

On Stand A20-B39 in Hall 8.1, visitors will find plenty to interest them in terms of field-proven Krones solutions and our latest new products – all of them tasked with gentle, dependable production of foods and beverages.

The innovations being showcased include the new shell-and-tube heat exchanger for: warming up milk, milk-based mixed drinks, teas or juices. Heat exchange takes place here on the product-against-product principle: the colder product flows through the inner tube and as it does so is heated up by the already-warmed product in the outer tube. The advantage? A substantially optimised energy recovery rate.

Also represented on our stand at the fair are our subsidiaries HST, Evoguard and Milkron. The three companies complement each other with their different lines of business, and persuasively illustrate how Krones is continually upgrading its overall corporate competence as a complete-system vendor for the food and beverage sectors. Evoguard’s extensive portfolio of valves and pumps, meanwhile well-established on the market, will probably be familiar to a majority of the fair’s visitors. But have you also heard of the HST HL6-250K homogenizer we are exhibiting, a particularly energy-economical design able to increase the physical stability of UHT milk and desserts, plus milk-based mixed drinks?

And what do you know about our subsidiary Milkron? For what is meanwhile more than eighteen months, the company has been concentrating on planning and engineering lines and plants for processing milk – at the Anuga FoodTec, visitors will have an opportunity for mutual feedback with the experienced sectoral insiders, and to learn more about the milk experts of the Krones Group.

But process technology is not the only focus, of course. On our stand at the fair, we shall be exhibiting our entire portfolio from the “House of Krones”, and convincing visitors that Krones has the right solutions for all areas of the beverage and liquid-food industries. We’re looking forward to welcoming you!
