Recover the value – Reduce the waste

Product recovery systems

Product Recovery Systems

Cleaning of process lines is always an issue – both to meet the strictest criteria for hygienic design both also to gain as much product out of the pipes as possible. The answer to both cleaning and maximum output is a Product Recovery System. With such a system you recover the valuable finished product from the process lines and this technique also substantially reduces consumption of the effluents traditionally used for push out. The system is available as fully automated, semi-automated or with manual operation depending on the product and the customer’s requirements.

  • Reduced product loss
  • Reduced effluent disposal costs
  • Reduced consumption of water and CIP media
  • Reduced production down times
