Safe production of baby foods with food door Albany RR300

In the production of baby and infant foods and clinical products, stringent hygiene regulations are in place to ensure that the health of children or adults is not endangered. Milupa, in Fulda Germany, produces more than 40,000 tons of baby foods as well as clinical products for the German and international market.

Flawless hygienic conditions

The company focuses on flawless hygienic conditions in production which exceed the mandatory requirements. Complex air filters and airlocks protect against contamination and create perfect conditions in production. To ensure a continuous material flow from the storage area to the production area Milupa introduced an airlock system from ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems.

Albany RR 300 Food Doors in airlock system

In total there are three airlock systems containing six high performance Albany RR 300 Food Doors as part of a new storage concept. Each day around 150 Big Bags of milk powder, with a volume of 500-1000 kilos each, are transported via these airlocks from the raw material warehouse to the feeding chute. There the sacks are emptied and the milk powder is prepared for further processing.

The efficient new airlock systems also allowed Milupa to extend the frequency of material runs. One airlock is assigned to each milk station in the feeding chute, where the milk powder is prepared for further processing. The warehouse staff inserts the required number of Big Bags in the airlock on demand.
