SPX FLOW, Inc. a provider of process solutions for the nutrition, health, and industrial markets, will provide its Ultra High Temperature (UHT) technology process lines to one of the Middle East’s leading dairy producers.
The sale comes just days after SPX FLOW and SIG announced something unprecedented in the Middle East: a new Technology Center in Dubai that will stretch the value chain from research and development to processing and packaging. The Technology Center will accelerate how customers test a complete delivery solution, speeding up their time to market.
The customer, a producer of long-life milk, flavored milk, and feta cheese, will install two UHT process lines, as well as SPX FLOW valves, pumps, a homogenizer, a mixer, and components for plate heat exchangers.
"This is exactly what we envisioned would happen with the Technology Center," said Gerard Lang, SPX FLOW’s vice president of Nutrition & Health Systems. "This new collaboration makes us a one-stop provider for a complete process solution, and companies in the Middle East have been waiting a long time for this."
SPX FLOW helped pioneer UHT development during the 1950s and 1960s. Today, the company offers a large choice of technology, ranging from low-cost "express" systems to customized solutions that meet exact processing needs and specific product qualities.
