Process and Mechanical Design Engineering Service
Advanced 3D Engineering Design for visualization and animation, which is key for efficient processing of food and beverage products.
3D DESIGN, MODELING & GEOMETRICAL VISUALIZATION
LPE ensure the design process and layout of food & beverage production is carried out by our experienced engineering team with the use of the latest 3D design tools. Tank farm design and production layouts are analyzed in 3 dimensions along with flow technology. We analyze back pressure flow and pump performance throughout the production along with heat and cooling transfer data. We provide in-tank data for the client to monitor the production and in fermentation, to control valued liquid processing. Green Engineering Technology plays a big part in today’s environmental requirements.

Gravity Flow Process Engineering
The advantages of a gravity flow design in food and beverage industry are using gravity through descending levels with gravity doing the work of electric pumps. Gravity flow designs use gravity for the free flow of grapes or wine and substantially reduces the cost of processing, eliminating the use processing equipment such as pumps. Our unique SS Gravity flow fruit sorting process allows for inspection, grading and sorting of grapes and other fruits using gravity to reduce damage to fruit and reduce energy. The system can be sized to suit your requirements and combined with other green engineering technology we offer automation and PLC control to enable monitoring of energy and process for consistent performance.
Some of the advantages of a gravity flow are
- Lowers non-soluble solids
- Cost savings through using less energy
- Eliminating processing equipment such as pumps
- More compact layout for the winery
- Environmental Sustainability reduces mechanical pumping and lower
