ViscoTec convinced with its endless piston principle
Based on the well-established endless piston principle (progressive cavity technology) ViscoTec developed a dispenser which meets highest hygienic standards. The Hygienic Dispenser enables highly accurate and gentle dispensing and filling of minute quantities of fluids or highly viscous pastes in the food industry. Combined with robots or production machines, process-safe and automated solutions can be realized. Due to a compact design of the progressive cavity, e.g. chocolate or sugar icing can be easily dosed. With a minimum dosing quantity of 0.06 ml and an accuracy of +/- 1% ViscoTec dosing systems stand out in the market. The optional suck-back function guarantees a clean process – without dripping and with a perfect thread break. This concept can be applied in various applications in the food industry.
International FoodTec Award
The International FoodTec Award is awarded by the DLG in alignment with various experts and media partners. The award honors pioneering developments in the food technology with regards to innovation, sustainability and efficiency. An international jury with experts from science and practice selects the best concepts. Every 3 years, the DLG awards the gold and silver medals. The gold medal honors new product concepts which fundamentally change the function of the product as well as new or significantly improved process concepts. Developments, which enabled a significant improvement of a product function or a process, receive a silver medal.
The visit of the Anuga FoodTec was very successful for ViscoTec and at the same time a perfect opportunity to present the Hygienic Dispenser to a larger audience. “It is an incredible honor for ViscoTec in general and the business unit Food in particular to receive the FoodTec Award 2018. It makes all employees who contributed to the development and successful launch of the Hygienic Dispenser, extremely proud. The Hygienic Dispenser offers highly interesting areas of application and is a pioneering technology for dispensing and filling, especially in combination with robotic and automization”, said the manager of the business unit Food & Cosmetics, Wolfgang Merklein.
