Plastic beats stainless steel at Döhler
Döhler is a global producer of juice and soft drink concentrates. These concentrates are stored in vats with a stainless steel relief valve that is cleaned and disinfected every time the vat is changed.
This innovative food producer worked in cooperation with Alligator Plastics to find a smarter and better solution. A plastic version was developed in conjunction. This version satisfies all strict requirements that are so typical of the food industry. The relief valve is now a disposable plastic product, which has enabled the cost price of the product as well as the handling time and costs to drop considerably. This new concept has since been rolled out across increasingly more branches of Döhler.
