All customerprocesses that use gases - Strategic application technology
The product variety of baked goods ranges from rolls to cake variations. Messer's application technology know-how in this segment is just as extensive. This starts with silo inerting during raw material storage, continues with cooling processes during kneading and extends to the transport of chilled or frozen baked goods.
Beer process chart
The brewing process starts, strictly speaking, with the selection of raw materials. According to the "German Purity Law", in Germany these can only consist of water, hops, malt and yeast. In further carefully coordinated process steps, the beer is then produced according to taste and type. Various gas applications are used to optimise the production process: the most well-known application being the carbonating of the beer by means of carbon dioxide. But gases from Messer are also used when inerting product tanks to displace unwanted oxygen or during beer filling.
Coffee production process chart
Coffee is cultivated in over 50 countries worldwide, with different levels of quality depending on the region and type of coffee. The combination of roasted, ground coffee beans and hot water finally results in the popular hot drink. A series of Messer gases are used throughout the entire production process.
Copper smelting and refining process
Copper production is carried out over several stages. Copper is either produced from copper ore (primary copper) or copper scrap (secondary copper). During primary copper manufacture, copper concentrate is used and reduced to blister copper after roasting. For secondary copper production copper scrap, slag, dross, dust or slurries are melted together with coke and slag-forming additives.
Various smelting processes are used. The resulting liquid copper matte (Cu 60 to 65%) is processed to blister copper (Cu approx. 98%) in a convertor. After fire-refining in anode furnaces the Cu purity is over 99%.
Single-origin scrap of a high purity is used for the production of wire and pipes using a direct smelting process with special shaft furnaces and immediately cast.
Heat treatment can modify the material structure and other properties of copper and adapt it for its intended use. Various furnaces such as batch type or continuous type furnaces are available for these processes. Bell furnaces are used for the final treatment.
Dairy products process chart
Milk is one of our most important basic foodstuffs and the range of dairy products is large. The manufacture of products such as yoghurt, cheese and quark consists of a whole range of process steps from purifying the raw milk, giving it a longer shelf-life to finally creating the end product. Gases from Messer are used in many of these steps.
