Thin film and short path evaporators for healthy and tasty products


Thin film and short path evaporators for healthy and tasty products

Food Industry

Food products are processed in order to improve their properties related to storage, stability, taste, smell and flavour as well as to refine desired components. Since food in general is temperature-sensitive and sometimes difficult to handle, SMS offers its equipment for special food treatment. For example, the treatment in short path evaporators allows the separation of very temperature-sensitive molecules because of the low operating pressure and temperature. Treatment in thin film evaporators is used in chocolate production and production of natural food colours.

Evaporation Technology

We offer the world’s largest selection of thin film evaporators and build customer-specific equipment for the evaporation of materials which are difficult to process such as viscous, fouling and heat sensitive liquids.

Drying Technology

Depending on the requirement, we combine and customise drying processes and components to suit the product properties so that, for example, toxic or explosive materials can be safely and efficiently processed.

High Viscosity Technology

Our thin film processors and large volume reactors for the manufacture and preparation of polymers are world leaders and guarantee the very highest quality and efficiency as well as excellent process results.
