What Is Nutraceutical Manufacturing?
Nutraceuticals are dietary supplements, beverages, and ingredients derived from foods that provide medicinal benefits when ingested. Nutraceutical manufacturers produce products and ingredients according to various certifications, such as organic, non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free, depending on the sourcing and manufacturing of the products. Manufacturers can produce and retail nutraceuticals or sell the product in bulk to a private label manufacturer, where it is packaged, labeled, and shipped to customers or retailers.
At American Alloy, we fabricate stainless steel piping, pressure filters, storage vessels, and other equipment that meet the stringent standards for food and pharmaceutical applications. Stainless steel equipment and components provide many benefits for manufacturing nutraceutical products. We will explore the types of nutraceutical manufacturing equipment available, our product offerings, and how you can benefit from using our equipment for your operation.
Typical Steel Equipment Used in Nutraceuticals Manufacturing
Nutraceutical products manufacturers depend on various equipment to create supplements in small to large volumes, such as conical gentle crushers and hammer mills that crush granules into powder. Nutraceutical manufacturers rely on in-line, continuous blenders and conical screw mixers to incorporate dry formulations. Dry and liquid fillers are common equipment for filling nutraceutical containers. Throughout nutraceutical production, storage tanks and piping are used to store and transfer ingredients.
Equipment for nutraceuticals manufacturing should be made of easy-to-clean materials to facilitate cleaning between batches. It must handle dry and liquid substances with different levels of acidity, viscosity, and flow rates. Stainless steel is ideal for its ease of sanitization and resistance to oxidation, chemicals, chlorides, and salts.
American Alloy produces piping, storage tanks, pressure vessels, pressure filters, and other equipment for handling liquid and dry nutraceutical products from stainless steel. We can make equipment to handle nearly any nutraceutical processing application or ingredient. Our stainless steel equipment can withstand chemicals and chlorides without corroding.
