The food and beverage industry encompasses the production and distribution of all edible processed goods, including dairy and meat products, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, and packaged foods. As these products are produced with the intention of consumption, production operations are heavily regulated by stringent safety and sanitation policies and guidelines, such as employing sanitary equipment and systems to maintain a sanitary processing environment. In meeting these requirements, manufacturers satisfy regulatory standards and ensure the quality and safety of their products and the well-being of their customers.

From tanks, processors, and blenders to pressure vessels, totes, and custom fabrications, the team at Highland Equipment manufactures a variety of sanitary equipment for food and beverage processing lines. Our past clients include some of the largest food manufacturers, such as Nestle, Richardson, Mondelēz, Parmalat, and Mars.

Our Products

At Highland Equipment, we design, manufacture, and install a wide range of sanitary stainless steel parts and equipment for food and beverage processing applications. Our products include CIP/SIP systems, mixing and storage tanks, mixers, heat exchangers, piping, and valves. With these components, we design and build systems to safely process food material and beverages, such as:

  • Juices
  • Soups
  • Condiments

Sanitary Processing Experts

Highland Equipment builds complete process systems following industry sanitary standards such as ASME BPE, GMP and 3A. We use our own depth of professional knowledge and years of practical experience to provide food and beverage producers assurance our equipment will comply with their stringent industry regulations for Health and Safety and sanitary manufacturing processes.

Along with offering HTST, UHT, and Vat pasteurization processes for sanitation and storage of dairy products, Highland Equipment designs and builds complete CIP systems that provide our customers the ability to add the benefits of clean-in-place (CIP) technology into their product manufacturing processes. Clean-in-place systems are designed to use a mix of cleaning and sanitizing chemicals, heat, and water to thoroughly cleanse process pipes, vessels, and machinery “in place.” Cleaning “in place” benefits food and beverage manufacturers by removing the risk of re-contaminating equipment during reassembly after “out of place” cleaning as well as from the additional costs in time and labor associated with “out of place” cleaning.
