Food & Beverage

Food refinement

The product properties of foods can be specifically improved by our solutions. Fine chocolates with fascinating aromas, natural colorants with high coloring power and shelf-stable suspensions. They also enable the production of alternative foods, food supplements and reduce or replace additives in conventional foods.

Maximum taste pleasure and improved texture

Our application areas have a fascinating variety


Our agitator bead mills are used to break down solid flavors and their particles and suspend them in a liquid. In this process step, they are subjected to mechanical action, friction and shear forces. As a result, flavors are extracted, multiplied and brought to a uniform particle size and particle distribution. This contributes to the homogeneous distribution of the flavors and enables better integration into food and beverage products.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology


Our innovative WAB IMPA°CREACTOR embodies the perfect symbiosis between chemical and mechanical separation of cellulose fibers. This unique combination sets a new standard in pulping and processing technology. The fractionation of Lignocellulose is an important process in biochemistry and biotechnology, in which Lignocellulose, the main component of plant biomass, is divided into its main components: Lignin, Hemicellulose and Cellulose. This fractionation enables the targeted further processing of these components into a wide range of chemical products and molecules with broad application in various industries.

Flow Chemistry


The use of our agitator bead mills in the production of substitutes is an innovative technique in the food industry. This allows traditional ingredients to be replaced with alternative ingredients to produce healthier, allergen-free products or reduce environmental impact. This method can be used in various food categories, including baked goods, snacks, beverages and more. In addition, products with higher levels of fiber, vitamins and minerals can be produced.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology


The use of our agitator bead mills in the wet grinding of natural food colors enables higher color intensities and more uniform coloring. This gives the end products an attractive appearance and eliminates unwanted sedimentation.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology

Spices and herbs

The way spices, herbs and tea are mixed together can have a significant impact on the taste, aroma and overall experience of a dish. With our 3D shaker mixers, not only homogeneous mixing results can be realized, but also coatings such as tea with flavors.

Mixing Technology


The mixing of hops is an essential part of brewing beer and has a decisive influence on the taste, aroma and bitterness of the final product. Hops is not only used for beer production, but can also be used in other applications such as teas, essences and flavors.

Mixing Technology

Food flavorings

With our three-dimensional shaker mixers the food flavors are optimally homogenized and evenly distributed over the entire volume.

Mixing Technology

Food supplements

The use of our agitator bead mills for wet grinding enables the efficient extraction of dietary supplements such as astaxanthin from organisms. This process helps to break down the cell walls to allow access to the desired ingredients. The homogeneous mixture produced is then further processed, isolated and used in dietary supplements, animal feed or food colorants.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology


Our agitator bead mills are also used in the food industry for chocolate production. This solution involves grinding chocolate mass, chocolate ingredients (cocoa beans, sugar, soy lecithin, etc.) or fillings. In a liquid environment, the particles are reduced, the texture is improved and the properties of the chocolate are changed.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology

Chocolate powder

Mixing chocolate powder makes it possible to combine different flavors and aromas. From classic cocoa to variations such as mint-flavored or orange-flavored chocolate, there are numerous ways to vary the taste.

Mixing Technology

Pet food

Our agitator bead mills are used in the processing of feed, especially for animals such as pigs, poultry or fish. The focus is on the well-being and health of the animals. In wet grinding, raw materials are ground into a fine mass, with water or another liquid added to facilitate grinding and make the resulting mixture more malleable. This process helps to improve the digestibility of the feed and optimize nutrient absorption by the animals.

Grinding & Dispersion Technology


The use of biomass instead of petroleum-based additives is an increasing trend in food production. Flow Chemistry enables continuous product flow and residence time within the WAB IMPA°CREACTOR tailored to the product. Excellent surface renewal enables particularly efficient activation of reactants and catalysts, which in turn reduces overall energy requirements and enables higher yields.
