ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA at Anuga FoodTec 2022 - Focus on tanks and separation technology

At this trade fair, the industry traditionally presents its new developments and technological visions. ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA GmbH, Ludwigsburg, is looking forward to presenting its innovative components, future-oriented technologies and sustainable solutions for the beverage, dairy, liquid food and edible oil industry. The scope of supply and services ranges from individual components to turnkey production plants, including individual recipe and process development in the company’s own pilot plant.

The first focus of the trade fair presentation in hall 5.1 at stand A-044 is a proven core competence of ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA – tank construction. As one of the largest tank manufacturers in the world, ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA covers this sector with all types of tanks and silos made of stainless steel – in particular fermentation tanks, process tanks, storage and blending tanks. These are manufactured in production facilities in North America, Asia or Europe and are preferably delivered in one piece. Otherwise, the assembly is carried out with own technologies on construction sites all over the world. The know-how and extraordinary vertical range of manufacture including the in-house production of tank bottoms and tops, guarantees highest quality as well as adherence to dates and deadlines - all this with shortest delivery times thanks to corresponding capacities. With the high-quality hygienic design, a maximum of biological product safety can be achieved, which also covers aseptic applications.

Solid-liquid separation in the food industry

The second focus is on the solid-liquid separation and in particular on the dynamic mash filtration system NESSIE by ZIEMANN. By means of four rotary disk filters, connected in series, NESSIE combines the process steps of separation, extraction in the counterflow procedure as well as the dynamic washing of solids. Due to this process combination, products can be processed with the identical system regardless of temperature ranges, viscosities, raw material sources or suspensions. Even the smallest batch volumes can be processed at any time. A continuous process can also be implemented.

Thanks to an effective extraction process, NESSIE by ZIEMANN achieves the best possible results with minimal use of the washing medium in the fluid or solid separation. Two examples are the lautering work in the brewery (fluid) and the separation of solids in the food industry, where the pressureless process is also particularly gentle on the product. The proven hygienic design, the very compact construction, the simple expandability and the possibility of targeted water savings by means of recuperation are additional features of the system. Another important aspect from the operator’s point of view is the high process speed of the system.
As a further separation technology, filter presses are not only to be considered for breweries, but also for other areas of food production. DRAGONFLY by ZIEMANN is designed as a thin-layer mash filter, which processes even the largest charges quickly and reliably. An alternative is BUTTERFLY by ZIEMANN, which is equipped with a so-called “mixed” plate package, where the chamber and the membrane plates are alternately arranged. By using membrane plates, the dry substance in the solids can be significantly increased.
