Working for our customers
Spray drying and the processing of milk fats have been the core business of Uelzena for many decades. Using our experience, expertise and the latest technology, we turn our customers’ raw materials into tailor-made ingredients and products.
We have many years of expert know-how as well as a comprehensive technology portfolio available at the various production sites of the Uelzena Group. We operate advanced spraying towers and apply milk fat fractionating technology which is unique in Germany. These are the basic factors for the development of individual production processes for each customer request.
Spray drying: solving complex challenges
We dry plant colors and flavors as well as vitamins, minerals, vegetable extracts, spices and additives. Our special expertise is the development, control and systematization of production processes that match the individual drying project at its best. This also applies to difficult production processes such as the drying of susceptible natural materials, suspensions and emulsions. We have several differently sized spraying towers available at our Uelzen site which can be operated with different spraying technologies. The production of dry mixes completes our service range.
Milk fats: Expert knowledge, experience and technological expertise
On behalf of our customers, we process milk fat at our three sites in Uelzen, Bismark and Warmsen. We produce butter and concentrated butter and we standardize milk and cream products. Assisted by patented physical processes, we are also able to fractionate and decolorize milk fat or remove cholesterol upon request.
Safe production on behalf of our customers
We have a comprehensive quality management system in place at all of our sites. Apart from being frequently certified according to the most important national and international schemes including ISO and IFS, we also pass demanding audits conducted by our customers on a regular basis. For several products and processes, we have also been approved according to organics, kosher and halal rules.
OUR SERVICE RANGE
Our special technology range for spray drying applications at our Uelzen site comprises several spraying towers with different designs and performance parameters. Based on the product to be dried, we combine the appropriate drying system (disk or nozzle) with one of our towers. This means that we have the right tower for any product.
Approximately 50 years of experience makes us a real specialist in spray drying including difficult-to-handle products. Our specific expertise: We develop the perfect processing and spraying processes precisely adapted to each drying project — for a perfect drying result.
Our spray drying applications and the processing of milk fats are certified according to strict kosher and halal requirements. We are also able to spray dry and premix organic products according to the respective regulations.
Within the field of contract manufacturing, we offer various packaging options for spray dried ingredients and milk fat products. These include Big Bags, tank trucks and silo loading as well as cardboard boxes with liners, Bag-in-Box systems, Pallecons, fluid bags and stainless steel thermal containers.
We are specialists in the drying of vegetable raw materials such as colors and flavors. These products are somewhat challenging because their composition varies depending on the time of year and their origin. Thanks to our sophisticated process control, we are nevertheless able to deliver the right composition, color and particle size batch for every batch.
Our contract manufacturing processes are entirely monitored and controlled by a high performance quality management system. This includes continuous monitoring of the running production in our six specialized laboratories. We also apply a comprehensive HACCP concept.
