Mixers & agitators

For processed foods, dairy, beverages,
pharmaceutical & biotech industries

THE COMPANY

A company with many years of experience and vast expertise in the manufacture of agitators and mixers for food-processing, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. This organization struggles to offer high quality products which fulfill with the high standards of the food, pharma and chemical industries.

THE PROBLEM

Achieving a perfect food-grade finish in metal parts involves repetitive and time-consuming manual tasks, which means labor-abundant work or complex multi-step processes, with hazardous products and expensive licenses to be handled. Secondly, traditional surface finishing are inefficient and error-prone manual processes which are not achieving the repetitiveness and consistency required by the sector leading to premature failure, cross-contamination risks.

THE SOLUTION

Thanks to the DryLyte Technology, GPAINNOVA successfully achieved the technical surface specifications with the lowest overall process time and cost. These specifications included stringent tolerances, non-stick properties, reduced friction on contact surfaces to prevent the adhesion of high-viscosity pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, and enhanced corrosion resistance.

After implementing the new DLyte procedure, the processing time was reduced to 180 minutes per batch, allowing for the processing of 8 pieces per batch. The initial average roughness decreased from 1.5 to 0.9 microns (60 to 35 microinches), and the final roughness reached below 0.1 microns (11 microinches) at 8 different measurement points across the surface.

Furthermore, the DLyte process replaced the polishing steps previously performed using a soft disc and liquid electropolishing. This replacement not only improved the quality of the results but also resulted in significant time and cost savings for the company.
