Hygienic Design

Our experts have extensive hygienic equipment and facility design experience and can help verify regulatory compliance as well as provide recommendations to your cleaning and sanitization processes.

Product recalls have the potential to result in tremendous negative impact to a company’s image, reputation and financial state. Product quality problems due to microorganism contamination are often related to improperly designed systems or cleaning and sanitization procedures that are inadequate for the specific product.

Process Plus has designed new process systems for a wide variety of products that are susceptible to microorganism contamination, including high-viscosity products. This experience has led to hygienic equipment and facility design standards being developed for key Chemical, Consumer Products, Pharmaceutical and Food & Beverage companies.
