mixing of food powders
Whether instant beverage powders, baking mixes, spices, dried soups, or dietary supplements – in the food industry there are a variety of products whose quality depends on a sophisticated blending technology. The mixing of base products with different properties such as particle size, fragility, or bulk density, requires a gentle, yet effective mixing process. The flexible AVA plants for homogenizing solids or solids with liquids deliver to these requirements. Our advanced technology ensures homogeneous mixing of even the smallest amounts, which constitutes a key economic criterion when the process involves valuable additives. Depending on the base products used, AVA offers you the mixing technology best suited to producing your product to the highest standards.
dynamic sterilization of spices
Most spices such as chili, pepper, cumin, or others are heavily contaminated with microorganisms. Many sterilization processes affect product characteristics such as taste, smell or color. Since these are important quality features and selling points, effective and gentle sterilization is crucial to establishing a successful product. To help this effort, AVA has developed automatic plants that guarantee 5-log reduction of microbiological contamination. The plants work with dynamic pressure sterilization, giving you a sterilization result free of color or flavor loss. In addition to quality aspects, our method provides a precisely controllable and particularly short sterilization process.
coating with oil, water and fat
In the food industry, a wide range of products is coated to respond to market requirements. Our specially developed AVA technology enables the introduction and homogeneous distribution of even the smallest quantities of liquids for dust binding or taste adaptation, tailored to your application. Expertise regarding the various product characteristics and associated production processes is essential to this. Delivering this know-how, we ensure that your product will unfold its full market potential regarding all characteristics.
drying of foods
AVA builds and develops plants for the various drying stages, from product-friendly vacuum drying, to steam drying and contact drying, through to roasting. Owing to the vessel shape and the agitator, each particle is subjected to the drying process. Temperature and humidity are maintained in the desired range by the constant movement of the particle collective, while localized overheating is prevented. This turns the valuable raw materials into a high-quality product that offers the required features.
