Extended durability with adapted hoses for jam
At Skånemejerierne's plant in Malmö, they experienced a short service life for the hoses used for jam transport.
Since they started testing the Beverage+ hose from Alfotech, the service life has been significantly extended. From the previous 3 months to now 12 months and upwards since the change from the traditionally used food hose for jam.
“With qualified advice from Alfotech, you get a specialized partner who can find the most optimal combination of price, quality and customization. With the help of the interlock system for our pressure couplings, you also increase the safety aspect and achieve improved hygiene during your product transports. Fast service and a large warehouse stock supply also helps in relation to rapid changes in operations," says Björn Eriksson, Head of Technology & Maintenance.
With Beverage+, the company has switched from traditional natural rubber to bromobutyl rubber (BIIR), which is more adapted to fruit acids from jams and juice products.
We care about the Swedish milk producer and the diversity of the Swedish dairy market.
Skånemejerier is so much more than a dairy in Skåne. Everyone knows that our dairy products are good. But in recent years, we have understood that the Skånemejerier brand stands for so much more. Buying milk produced in Sweden is for many an active action - a decision. It has created a closeness to our consumers that we are hugely proud of and happy about. We employ well over 600 employees directly and many more in our immediate area.
About 400 milk producers in Skåne and southern Sweden supply milk to our dairies. Skånemejerier has been part of the dairy group Groupe Lactalis since the summer of 2012.
