The IKA Group is a global market leader for laboratory, analytical and process technology founded in 1910 and headquartered in Staufen, Germany. Today, the IKA® group has over 800 employees at eight locations on four continents.
IKA® offers turnkey solutions and state-of-the-art manufacturing options. IKA‘s solutions include dispersing machines, homogenizers, stirrers, solid-liquid-mixers, dry mills, kneading machines, vacuum dryers as well as ready-for-use process plants, all being manufactured in IKA‘s outstanding high product quality. Consulting, design and realization of complex projects as well as proactive after-sales services complete the IKA® solution portfolio.
The high-quality process machines and plants are used in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic industries. In the IKA® test center customers can work on the development and optimization of their products and production processes supported by a qualified team of process engineers.
IKA offers extensive expertise in the diverse mixing processes used in the food industry.
IKA colloid and corundum disk mills are especially designed for the requirements of the food industry. They are used for wet milling of liquid, high viscous or pasty products and enable the production of extremely smooth spreads, hummus, horseradish and mustard in large volumes.
The new CMX machine enables users to prepare starch and sugar solutions in any quantity in a matter of minutes.
Furthermore IKA offers two high-performance systems for the production of exceptionally stable, high-quality emulsions such as mayonnaise and ketchup: The Master Plant and Standard Production Plant with a patented dispersing module.
For product development and process optimization IKA offers the magic PLANT. A laboratory-scale plant for the accurate simulation of full-scale production processes.
The magic PLANT inline incorporates solids into liquids in a recirculation process with a batch size of up to 2 liters. This laboratory scale system exactly simulates the full production process of e. g. production of starch solutions or fruit juices. It allows creating new or optimizing of existing recipes in small quantities. Similar process parameters and design in all construction sizes allow for an easy scale-up to the full production batch size.
The Corundum Disk Mill MCD is used for wet milling and homogenizing of liquid, viscous and pasty products. They are available in different grain sizes acc. to the required fineness. Due to the high shear forces the product is fine milled and then discharged through the lateral outlet of the milling chamber. A cooling jacket prevents an excessive heating of the product. Typical applications of the MCD are the production of mustards, hummus, peanut-butter or cocoa butter.
The SPP 1000 with a 4000 liter buffer tank for the final product is mainly used for the production of Mayonnaise. It is equipped with 4 funnels for the dosing of liquid and solid additives. According to the customer´s requirements the additive feeding devices are locally separated from the system and located in a room above the production plant. The SPP Standard Production Plant is available in 8 sizes from 25 up to 4000 liters and produces up to 8 tons of mayonnaise within one hour.
