Pilot Plant Rental
MTL operates an ultra modern pilot plant covering 3,000 sq. metres floor area. Our facility contains the most up-to-date and versatile pilot scale processing equipment.
While the plant was established around Dairy processing technologies, it now has a wide range of capabilities in general food and food ingredient development.
MTL is arranged in a modular structure of self- contained processing areas. This guarantees single client access and total confidentiality.
The plant is of sufficient scale to accurately simulate commercial food processing and has been assembled specifically for research/development and pre- commercial scale manufacturing in such product areas as;
Dairy Products: A comprehensive range of technologies covering all aspects of dairy processing; Cheese and Cultured milk products including probiotic yoghurts & desserts and milk powders & dairy ingredients.
Dried Food Ingredients: Regular, agglomerated, lecithinated & instantised powders, particulate drying & size reduction.
Bioprocessing: including Fermentation, Enzymatic conversion, and downstream Separation processes; centrifugal decantation, clarification, micro-filtration, ultra-filtration, nano-filtration and electro-dialysis.
