Marplug Technologies Ltd (Martec) are Clean-in-Place & Hygienic Pigging specialists giving practical advice and solutions on best practice design, installation and use of CIP and hygienic technologies in food and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
A corporate member of the European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG) Martec own key patents on hygienic pigging which work in concert with CIP as low-waste clean-in-place solutions. Our work ranges from low cost process upgrades to enhance productivity and clean-ability through to state-of-the-art CIP sets and Product Recovery Systems (Hygienic Pigging Systems). Martec are uniquely capable of integrating these two key technologies to achieve genuine synergy, and cost effectively address process wastage from batch production.
Hygienic production should not be at the cost of efficiency. At Martec we believe it is possible to have both.
When others shied away from transferring the principles of ‘pigging’ from oil & gas to food Martec applied professional engineering know-how to solve the hygienic challenges.
Pigging is still a key part of what we do. But our expertise extends to designing clean in place (CIP) plant and equipment, integrating product recovery solutions into end of batch cleaning regimes, automating to reduce human error and maximise safety, clearing dry powder lines (such as flour) as well as designing for sterile production environments or live culture products.
