Belgian company Spiromatic designs, manufactures, installs and services solid and liquid food ingredient handling equipment for the food and drink industry, with emphasis on the dough and mixed ingredient processes. With fifty years of experience within sectors including bakery, biscuits, sugar processing and brewing, Spiromatic works throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East, establishing close links with its customers in order to provide an optimal service for its ingredient handling systems.

The specialist engineering company operates from an 80,000 sq m production facility, where it designs and manufactures steel and stainless steel equipment and parts, composite silos and tanks, as well as the assembly of complete electrical and automation boards.

Products and Expertise

Spiromatic’s main products are composite outdoor silos for the storage of food ingredients like flour, sugar, salt, milking powder, gluten, etc. Spiromatic has developed a fully automated high tech manufacturing process to make vessels ranging in size from 1000 litres up to 380 cu m.

“The unique selling points of our composite technology are the extreme low temperature transfer of the silo walls, the very smooth and resistant interior wall, the high pressure values and the super-light construction. All raw materials as well as the manufacturing process is 100% food approved,” comments Dirk Dhont, key account manager at Spiromatic.

Together with its storage systems, Spiromatic also provides a specialised range of conveying equipment for dry non-free flowing and hygroscopic materials. Spiromatic can design hybrid systems, which combine mechanical and pneumatic conveying, to solve simple and complex conveying applications.

Spiromatic employs about 120 people of which a fifth are located on site at customers’ plants for installation, start-up and training purposes. A dedicated service and maintenance business unit takes care of the pro-active service and maintenance contracts and spare part management.

Spiromatic boasts an impressive client list. Its systems and expertise are evident in the process plants ofEurope’s leading frozen bread producers such as the La Lorraine Group, Lantmannen Unibake, Neuhauser and Vandemoortele. Indeed, its ingredient process solutions are installed in factories of global companies such as Puratos and Zeelandia, while chocolate and confectionary products manufactures such as Belcolade, Unilever and ADM are also loyal Spiromatic customers. Spiromatic is also a key supplier to the drinks industry, with installations at breweries, distilleries and drinks plants throughoutEurope.

Benefits of Spiromatic Technology 

“Because of their exclusive features, Spiromatic composite silos give a much higher storage quality to our customers. Ingredients have less risk of conglomeration and condensation, and old product always descends first. Also the periodical maintenance of composite silos is much easier and cheaper than conventional metal solutions,” Dirk Dhont explains. “With regards to conveying, Spiromatic can offer hybrid systems that consume less energy, have lower production-stop risks and are much more efficient on output.”
