Leader in Ohmic Heating technology, Emmepiemme srl produces a wide range of plants for food industries and other fields.
In 1993, a cooperation for an R&D project started. The main topic was the ohmic industrial heating for food industry. The project was created in partnership with a microwave specialized company and food processing with expert engineers. During the first period of the cooperation, different prototypes were developed and successfully equipped for the first time in a plant from Italy, where engineers starts a long period of evaluation with different types of food.
Originally the research program was independent, because in that years ohmic heating was an embryonic technology and there were not public information of research centers. However, major companies were exploring the ohmic process in the same period. The research gave initially good results on empiric tests and the technology, despite being on a first level, looked promising.
The main topic after the first test (even today) was the industrialization of the process, and the reliability of the equipped hardware. Materials, production processes, assembling, tests, lab-analysis and more are the foundation of the company, grown up in more than 20 years and about 100 equipped plants in 4 continents. The research of Emmepiemme has not stopped and assists from technology and material progress, continuously develop and test new solution for industries. The R&D activities are actually conducted in cooperation with specialized research centers, where technology and know-how is shared to improve industrial treatments and hardware.
Emmepiemme offers post-sale assistance for clients all over the world, production process and product specification are strictly confidential and monitored by expert technicians, with no externalization of the know-how and intellectual properties.
