The latest edition of Alpma’s News & Trends features the completed UF project at Ausnutria, the new “Smart Factory” approach.
For the impressive new Ausnutria B.V. Powder Factory in Heerenveen ALPMA realized a new complete UF-WPC production line for processing goat whey to WPC. In addition to the proven ALPMA quality, special focus was put on the interconnection of all automated components based on IoT.
Ausnutria aims for a “lights out manufacturing unit” for all its new production facilities, which means a largely fully automated process plant.
The heart of the new process is an UF plant, which is designed for an automatic start up and production. In the sense of sustainability the product loss at production end is minimized. The water demand during cleaning is reduced to a minimum. The turnkey project delivered by ALPMA Process Technology Division includes not only the UF plant but also the complete process engineering environment.
