General Processing, Pilot, Modular & Full Line Solutions

By SPX Corporation

General Processing Technology is the portfolio of technologies which links SPX’s key technologies together in processing lines. It involves a series of essential building blocks from reception of raw materials, pre-treatment before further processing, tank sections, output of final end products and cleaning of processing lines.

We pool our expertise in flow control, heating and cooling, homogenization and dispersion, metering, pumping, drying, mixing and systems to create a solution tailored to your needs.

Designed for maximum efficiency, these solutions include:

  • Reception of raw materials
  • Pre-treatment prior to additional processing
  • Tank sections
  • Output of final end products
  • Cleaning of processing lines

We design our systems to help you meet your goals for reducing energy consumption and waste in your process facility. And you can be assured that your product will meet applicable safety standards.

Pilot Plants

SPX offers a wide range of sophisticated small scale plants designed for scientific test work, R&D and/or small scale production. The main criteria for all plant designs include flexibility, safety and upscalability.

SPX pilot plants integrates high quality components that are designed to work together to deliver lower investment costs, high performance, reliability, long service life and within a shorter payback time. They are designed with a high degree of standardisation, delivered pre-assembled and factory tested, giving high performance, low risk and very short installation and commissioning times at the customer's site.

SPX Flow Technology Pilot Plants include:

  • Spray Drying systems
  • Evaporators
  • Spin Flash Dryers
  • Fluid Bed Dryers
  • Dosing units
  • Air heaters
  • Atomizers
  • CIP bag-filters
  • Membrane filtration systems
  • UHT sterilization units
  • Pasteurization plants
  • Butter making systems
  • Mixing and blending systems
  • Deaeration Units
  • Specific food processing systems
  • Scraped Surface Heat Exchangers (SSHE)
  • Margarine systems
  • Centrifuges

Modular Solutions - APV FX Systems™

Factory Xpress Systems

FX Systems™ - also known as Factory Xpress Systems - are pre-engineered, self-contained skidded systems with short delivery times for rapid implementation in the factory. Including a range of process technologies and applications with comprehensive automation options, FX Systems offer rapid installation of processing solutions with the same quality advantages as large processing plants.

SPX engineers have used experience gathered all over the world to design these standardized modular solutions combining state-of-the-art technology in skid mounted designs.

Quicker and cheaper installation

FX Systems offer a level of customisation with choices between various modules and options, depending on the application type. The standardised module design and short delivery times of as little as a few weeks result in reduced time-to market for a new product and relieve larger plants from time consuming changeovers. Each module contains a full set of installation instructions and can be assembled quickly, keeping installation costs to a minimum and significantly shortening time-to-production.
