Complete Line of Sanitary, Dry Process Equipment
Gericke offers food-grade bulk processing equipment and systems to promote the safe, sanitary, dust-free transport and secure storage of ingredients for food, beverage, nutraceutical and other products. Its GMS Multiflux® batch mixer has earned acclaim for achieving maximum homogeneity quickly with a gentle mixing action that protects fragile ingredients. Similarly, the Pulse-FlowTM PTA dense phase pneumatic conveying system has become standard equipment for gently transporting fragile ingredients up to hundreds of yards, whether powdered, granular, coarse or agglomerated. The Gericke Nibbler for de-agglomeration and other size reduction needs features an optional proprietary advance that helps safeguard against combustible dust issues. These and other sanitary food ingredient handling systems come with USDA and/or FDA approvals as needed, along with stainless steel construction, continuously welded seams and CIP capabilities.
