FBR Staff Writer Published 09 July 2014

Multi-industry manufacturing company SPX Corporation has secured a $28m contract to supply dairy processing system for Biocom's Nesvizh Baby Food Factory in Belarus.


The dairy processing system features SPX solutions that use ultrafiltration and infusion technologies.

It will also have homogenizers, separators, plate and scraped surface heat exchangers, bacteria clarifiers, pumps, valves, membrane technology, extended shelf life technology with microfiltration and ultra high temperature tubular infusion plants, SPX claims.

SPX Flow Food and Beverage president Marc Michael said that SPX is working with Biocom to establish a state-of-the-art dairy processing plant in Belarus that is designed to deliver high capacity while also being highly flexible and highly efficient.

"We are leveraging our deep expertise in fresh dairy processing to help Biocom create a dairy plant that is optimized for product consistency, operational efficiency, food safety and sustainability," added Michael.

Biocom's proposed baby food factory will have a capacity to process around 500 tons of milk dairy. It will produce liquid baby food, a wide range of yogurts, cottage cheese and a variety of milk including ultra-high temperature, extended shelf life, pasteurized and flavored milks.
