Krones’ after movie of Anuga FoodTec 2022
No matter, if you were live in Cologne or followed everything online on our Krones magazine or social media channels: This short video is a must-see for everyone, since we have collected once again the best moments of the trade show. How have you experienced Anuga FoodTec? We are looking forward for your feedback below this LinkedIn post.
After four days of hustle and bustle, Anuga FoodTec is coming to an end – time to look back on the last day. The whole Krones team was happy to finally meet customers and suppliers in person and wishes all visitors a safe trip back home. A detailed report will be online on Krones magazine on Monday.
QR code makes all important data and documents immediately available on your cell phone
Evoguard is going digital – making it much easier for you to maintain and service your pumps and valves. Flipping through folders and searching through printed documentation will be a thing of the past. Instead, all you need is your smartphone. Because in the future, every Evoguard component will come with an individual QR code which will take you to a website containing all the technical data for just that pump or valve. At a glance, you will find the serial number, a technical product specification, and information on all spare parts (even including quantity and material numbers for reordering), as well as additional documents such as the operating instructions or drawings. And with just a few clicks, you can either share the information with your colleagues or connect directly to Evoguard Customer Service if you have further questions about your component. At Anuga FoodTec, Krones' subsidiary Evoguard will be presenting the QR code function for the first time. This is then expected to be in use from summer 2022: Then all newly delivered pumps and valves will automatically receive a QR code on their nameplate.
THE trend topic for the beverage industry: plant-based drinks
All around the world, they are among the most upcoming beverage trends: vegan milk alternatives, also called plant-based drinks. For the production of oat drinks, Krones Process Technology offers three variants: from a quick market entry to an overall concept with great potential for energy savings. Alexander Scheidel from the product development team at Steinecker gives a short overview of the three different solutions in this video. A detailed article can be read with clicking on this post.
Third day of Anuga FoodTec in a photo gallery
The Krones stand was well visited also on the third day of the trade show – no wonder, since topics like plant-based drinks or exhibits like the cooling-tower VapoChill, the heat exchanger modules Evotube or pumps from Evoguard dragged many visitors on the booth. And of course, they also took the opportunity for an intensive exchange with the team from Krones and its subsidiaries – finally live and in person again.
Open, evaporative cooling towers for all branches of industry
Developed and manufactured by Krones, sold by Milkron – from now on, this is the concept behind the cooling tower series VapoChill. Thomas Koch is the responsible salesperson at Milkron and in this short video he explains what is special about the VapoChill. You can read even more about it in this Krone magazine article.
HST homogenizers of the HLI series
It is fair to say that the HLI high-pressure homogenizers from HST have proven their worth on the market. This series has been around since 2020 – and more than 20 models are meanwhile in use worldwide. The optionally available HST MultiGap homogenizing valve adapts perfectly to the required physical stability of UHT dairy products, vegan mixed drinks, desserts and fruit juices. Thanks to the optimum degree of turbulence, the homogenizing pressure can be reduced – while maintaining the same output. The practical side effect: Plant operators save energy during production while ensuring high product quality. Another advantage is already hidden in the product name itself: The "I" in the HLI series stands for Integrated. This refers to the compact design of the drive, which makes it possible to dispense with additional units and cooling media. It results in significantly lower operating costs for media and energy, optimized accessibility for service personnel, and reduced space requirements for the system. The series is currently available in three different sizes for outputs between 55 and 90 kilowatts. The largest model, the HLI90, will be on show at the Krones' booth at the Anuga FoodTec.
New multi-purpose heat exchanger module Evotube U
In this video, Dr. Roland Feilner, Head of Processing Units at Krones, presents the heat exchanger series Evotube. This is, because it was just extended by a second model: Evotube U handles not only heating and cooling jobs but also CIP process. You can also read more in this Krones magazine article.

Federal Minister Cem Özdemir visits the Krones stand
Cem Özdemir, member of the Green Party and German Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture, opened this year's Anuga FoodTec in Cologne. On his subsequent tour of the fair, he also paid a brief visit to the Krones stand. There he met, among others, with Thomas Ricker, Executive Vice President Sales, Bottling and Packaging Technology. He gave him a short overview of the Krones Group and, of course, presented him with our trade fair highlights, first and foremost the trending product category of plant-based drinks, i.e. vegan milk alternatives.
