Hygiene in food processing and medical production is more important than ever.
In modern society, there is a consumer-driven tendency towards adding less preservatives to foods, and consumers look for quality and freshness. This causes challenges for the way we produce food because the way the factories accommodate these new consumer ideals make the foods more sensitive to contamination.
Needless to say, hygiene is not just important for food processing. It is especially crucial for the production of medical equipment and medicine. In this case, hygiene can become a matter of life or death for patients.
This site gives a brief introduction to some of the most critical considerations when designing equipment for food processing or medical production facilities. It is within these two spheres of production that hygiene plays an important role. And for that reason, it is of utmost importance to make hygiene a “built in” feature of the product design.
This article deals with how modern society raises the bar for hygienic design of equipment for professional manufacturing industries such as the food processing and medical industry. We cannot stress enough the importance of making hygiene a “built in” design feature of the products. Finally, you gain an insight into some of the major design criteria for hygienic equipment.
In this article, we give you an overview of the different phases that factories go through when they design and develop medical equipment or devices. Some of these steps include discovering and conceptualizing a market need, complying with international and national standards and regulations, testing, risk assessment and quality assurance.
Ever wondered how you turn your idea for a medical device or medical equipment into reality? This article gives an overview of especially the idea generation phase where you have to look at the market and see if your idea fills a gap in the market or if it improves an already existing idea – or maybe makes a work procedure faster or better.
For food processing factories – as well as for food processing equipment manufacturers – there are a ton of regulations, specifications, guidelines, requirements and standards, both nationally and internationally, to comply with to be able to put products on the market. To make safety a top priority, there are some critical considerations to be made about the way you design the food processing equipment. This article gives a brief overview of these considerations.
