Food Process

panks_food_process

From field to shop – Panks are on hand to help your crop on its journey every step of the way.

From seedling to saleable product we understand how to help you care for your crop; whether it’s misting in greenhouses for young plants or PH controlled conduit systems for floating lettuces! Right through to multi-pump steam stations in pack houses and food processing, at Panks we have the knowledge and expertise to understand your requirements – and the means to supply you with the best possible solution.

Whatever the scale of your operation, we have the design ideas, water systems, treatment plants, pumps and pressure boosters to help you safely and efficiently transport, wash, sanitise and process vegetable and fruit crops ready for distribution.

From design concept to installation and servicing; Panks does it all. Make it work well – work with us.

Efficiency Gains

If you are looking to improve your productivity and profit in the long-term, let us find you ways to make efficiency gains and recommend systems to invest in, or upgrades to your existing machinery.

And with energy efficiency as a priority, we can help you reduce your carbon footprint through systems for water reuse and conservation and the optimisation of your on-site power usage.

Pack Houses

Panks’ specialist machines and equipment safely spray, transport, cool, chill, sanitise and sterilise your produce and recycle waste water, keeping your costs down.

Our range of high pressure wash systems and pumps specifically feed reception tanks, cyclones, steam stations, flumes and conduits turning Norfolk and Suffolk’s ‘field muddy’ crops into shop ready produce.

And what about the waste water after washing down? Have you considered reusing the wash water? After treatment as part of a water saving initiative we can, in some circumstances, treat, boost, filter and sterilise this water for reuse around the site.

And if you really are looking for the complete solution, Panks can deal with your peelings and waste disposal too. We can take care of it all.

Processing Plants

If you are processing ready-meals and packaged food, a hygienic site is imperative. Let Panks provide the equipment to keep your site clean and sterile. From our high pressure pumps delivering powerful wash-down to on-site facilities for your workers’ sanitation, we have the answers. From produce transfer and washing, cooking and cooling processes, to chemical dosing and UV filtering, our pumps and water treatment systems get the job done.

As we are constantly innovating and looking to improve, we work in partnership with the (OEMs) original machine manufacturers from the initial design stage to setting up product trials, to check our systems are fit for purpose whilst striving for energy efficiency and keeping costs affordable.

Local to Global

Panks have many years’ knowledge and experience of working within the food industry across East Anglia and enjoy working with the individual pack houses and farmers across the Eastern region to look after all on-site water requirements.

But Panks have also worked in conjunction with original equipment manufacturers (OMEs) to select the right pumping equipment for their machines. These machines continue to be shipped all over the world. The pumps and processes are constantly reviewed to ensure systems provide consistent washing capabilities with the most efficient use of power.

Just as the market develops, so do our engineers, keeping up to date with evolving technology and innovations.

Panks Services

At Panks we listen. We hear what you want and we advise you on how to achieve it. And rest assured, you can trust us to do exactly what we say we will do.

From concept to delivery we can work with you to design, supply and install a reliable application that meets your specific plant requirements. We can install from scratch, or we can work with your existing systems to upgrade or improve efficiency.

And if something does go wrong, our dedicated in-house maintenance and repair staff are always on hand. Panks’ expert engineers have the technical knowledge and experience to keep your systems working smoothly whilst you concentrate on your business.

We understand that maintaining a hygienic plant is essential to food sites. Why not take advantage of Panks separate ‘clean room’ pump repair shop within our service centre? This purpose built workshop ensures your high standards of cleanliness are maintained off-site.

However big or small your operation we want to be involved. From small scale pumps to the whole system installation – just call Panks.
