At the leading trade fair Anuga FoodTec in Cologne, Leybold presents its vacuum technologies for the food processing and packaging industry from the 20th to the 23rd March 2018. The efficient solutions of the vacuum supplier are used worldwide. In a wide variety of applications, the pumps, systems and measuring devices of this long-established company make a significant contribution to sustainable and competitive products and processes in the food and beverage industry.
At one of Italy's largest producers of meat products near Parma, the installation of a Leybold system has reduced packaging time by around 20 percent. In addition to high vacuum performance, the meat product specialist attaches particular importance to an energy-efficient production process with low service and maintenance costs. The system based on the DRYVAC dry screw pump has been running reliably and without interruption for years, so that the customer was able to devote himself to the core tasks.
Efficient, hygienic food processing under vacuum is also becoming increasingly important for other reasons: In the age of global supply chains, the demands on shelf life are increasing. In view of this trend, customized vacuum solutions are essential for the economic efficiency of companies. For decades, Leybold has been manufacturing the technologies for the quality control of packaging. For example, leak tightness is increasingly tested under vacuum because only leak detectors such as the Phoenix series meet the highest testing standards. Mass spectrometers used in food analysis also make use of the performance of modern, noise-reduced pumps such as the Ecodry plus.
