There is no more leakage or build-up of milk powder throughout the factory leading to a much more hygienic environment.
HOCHDORF Group is one of the biggest milk processors in Switzerland, processing 300 million kilograms of fresh milk each year. Their Sulgen plant was experiencing issues with the hose clamp connections between processing equipment frequently leaking powder into the factory.
They were also untidy and the hose clips were sharp, causing holes in the connector sleeves themselves and presenting an injury risk to fingers during changeovers.
As part of their continuous improvement process, HOCHDORF turned to BFM® fitting to clean up their processing system and make their changeovers much faster and safer for staff.
