"In many areas of beverage production, it is now possible to switch to modern plastic systems," says Markus Kerger, Market Segment Manager Cooling at GF Piping Systems (Germany). Plastic piping systems are corrosion-free, thus significantly less susceptible to leakage, and last as long as the installation itself, at least 25 years. They thus offer beverage producers the opportunity to benefit from innovative materials and technologies in order to increase the cost-effectiveness of new and existing installations.
The system solutions from GF Piping Systems are particularly suitable for process cooling, such as precisely controlled fermentation and ripening processes, air-conditioned storage, cleaning and disinfection of the production installation and water treatment. Kerger: "The production of beverages must be hygienically flawless and economical. Plastic systems also eliminate the risk of failures due to corrosion damage and allow process and employee efficiency to be optimized through the increasing digital integration of their components."
The plastic systems from GF Piping Systems are capable of covering applications in the temperature range from -50°C to +140°C. The wide assortment of transition fittings allows easy and safe connection to metal systems. The corresponding drinking water and foodstuffs approvals are available.
