Food, ingredients and dairy production
Industrial equipment for processing meat, fish, poultry, vegetables, fruit and cereals food processing equipment - plays a crucial role in the production and processing of food. The equipment is designed to optimize efficiency, ensure quality and increase production capacity.
Critical factors for food equipment
What key elements should OEM manufacturers, service and maintenance companies be aware of when designing, repairing and rebuilding equipment for the food industry?
Robustness, durability and performance
The machines must withstand high production volumes and constant use, often in harsh environments. Stainless steel and other durable materials are typically chosen for their ability to resist wear and corrosion. The machines must handle food with high precision and consistency. This requires advanced control and guidance systems in addition to precision components.
Product safety and hygiene
Machine parts and components that come into contact with food must meet applicable industry standards or regulations and have the necessary approvals.
Equipmentmust should be easy to clean and maintain to prevent bacterial growth and cross-contamination. A good design minimizes dead zones and makese easy to disassemble components for thorough cleaning.
Energy and cost efficiency
With rising energy prices and increased focus on sustainability, manufacturers are continuously looking for ways to reduce energy consumption. This can be achieved through innovative design solutions such as energy-efficient motors and heat recovery systems. An initial outlay for high-quality machinery and equipment can be significant, but the long-term savings in terms of increased productivity, reduced downtime and lower maintenance costs can make it a sound, worthwhile investment.
When machine builders and service companies meet these stringent requirements and industry standards, they deliver the highest value to their customers.
Product solutions that meet all standards and requirements in the food industry
Do you want to avoid spending time and costly misinvestments on components that don't meet the requirements of the food industry anyway?
Betech offers manufacturing conditions and product solutions in materials that meet standards, approvals and regulations on three continents. These include approvals and standards for food contact materials (FCM) and drinking water applications or the sanitary standards often required in process equipment and manufacturing plants.

In the food industry the right choice of gaskets, seals, technicale rubberparts as well as vibration dampers and machine feet are essential for reliable operation and safe product quality:
Industrial gaskets are essential to ensure tightness in different parts of food equipment. In pumps and valves, industrial gaskets prevent leakage of liquids and gases, ensuring efficient and safe operation. In heat exchangers, they ensure there is no cross-contamination between different fluids passing through the equipment.
Static seals are used (as gaskets) in situations where the sealing surfaces are fixed in relation to each other. They ensurerthat no leakage leakage during operation. In pressure vessels prevent sealingnprevents leakage leakage under high pressure and temperature. In pipe connections preventleakage of liquid, steam or gasand here are O-rings and in particular clamp-seals are popular due to easy disassembly when cleaning the pipe systems.
Dynamic seals are used in machinepartsthat move in relation to each otherand ensurethat no leakage leakage during movementn. In rotating equipment such as pumps and mixers mechanical shaftseals or braided packing ringsthat no leakage occurs during rotation. In hydraulic and pneumatic cylindersystems prevent piston and rod seals leakage of fluids or gases.
Rubber and silicone moulded parts
Molded parts made of rubber and silicone are used many places in food production and processing equipment due to the materials' characteristic abrasion resistance and elasticity. In conveyor belts and otherand other handling equipment, moulded rubber parts help absorb shock and minimize wear. In pumps and valves, they can provide flexible connections and sealsthat resistr pressure- and temperature changes. Designed as hoses or flexible tubes, rubber parts can be used in fluid and media transport applications.
Vibration dampers and machine feet
Vibration dampers and machine feet minimizer noise and vibrations from pumps, mixers and other vibrating machinery. They improve the physical working environment, stabilize machinery and extendr extends the equipment lifetime by reducing wear and absorbing shock. They are especially important in high-speed and high-volume production lines, where even minor vibrations can have a significant impact on product quality and equipment lifespan.
High quality products and service
It's important to us that you get high-quality products and advice. That's why we have ISO 9001:2015 quality management system covering product design, production and service.
We perform measurement reports on critical dimensions and produce according to ISO 3302-1 (Tolerances for rubber and silicone products), DIN 7715-5 (Tolerances for rubber stampings and cut-outs), DIN 61206 (tolerances for needle felt/wool felt) and GKV tolerances for PTFE/plate materials. Finer tolerances can usually be met upon request.
