Food & Pharmaceutical Hydraulics

Advanced hygienic equipment designed for the food, beverage & pharmaceutical industries

We can design systems and supply bespoke components for complex food and pharmaceutical processing tasks such as conveyers for products within a factory, sorting processes for manufacturing, and more.

We are experts in the manufacture of specialist bespoke fluid power cylinders, valves, pumps, air compressors and pipework, fittings and systems for both hydraulic and pneumatic applications

We collaborate with you on the design or application requirements. Our highly experienced technical team will provide the technical information you require and, in many cases, give you a 3D Solidworks design of your requirements.

Hydraulics in food processing

Applications in food and beverage production typically require specific levels of cleanliness for hydraulic or pneumatic components and other associated equipment that requires special clean design features that minimise entrapment points for bacteria. Our designs and components are procured from suppliers who are dedicated to advancing hygienic equipment design for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

These environmental challenges often require the use of stainless steel as the most commonly used material for food and pharmaceutical processing applications. Although stainless steel is more expensive and more costly to machine than aluminium, it can resist the steam, high pressure water, and caustic cleaners often used in food and beverage production. This makes it easier for designers to meet stringent requirements for hygiene and corrosion resistance, which justifies the higher initial investment for many machine designers.

Examples of applications include:

  • Cleaning
  • Conveying
  • Crushing
  • Feeding and dosing
  • Filtration
  • Material handling
  • Process control
  • Pumping
  • Screening
  • Storage and despatch
