Ensuring quality in infant formula production: In-line and End-of-Line

The role of mixing equipment in ensuring the quality of infant nutrition products

In both industrial and developing nations around the world, there is a growing demand for manufactured infant nutrition products. The expectations for these products are high: parents rightly expect that infant formula will support the nutritional health of their growing babies.

It goes without saying that all foods formulated for consumption by infants must meet stringent standards for nutritional value and food safety. These demands can only be met if the raw material components are prepared in quality-controlled systems. In addition to meeting these demands, manufacturers of infant formula also have a vested interest in efficient processing methods.

Modern mixing equipment must be gastight and dust-free in order to protect the mixing goods from environmental influence and protect employees from explosion risks. Containing the dust also has the added advantage of making the system easy to clean and maintain.
