Leader in Ohmic Heating technology, Emmepiemme srl furnishes the food industry (and many other more) with a wide range of high-quality plants and products.
This technology was developed in 1993 for an R&D project aiming to introduce ohmic heating to the food industry.
The project was created in partnership with a microwave company specialized in food processing with expert engineers. During the first period of the cooperation, different prototypes were developed and successfully equipped for the first time in Italy, where engineers started a long period of evaluation and calibration with different types of products.
At the time, ohmic heating was an embryonic technology. Sharing information between research centers was also more difficult than nowadays. In addition, there was no public information available to consulting.
Major companies were exploring this innovative process in the same period.
Our research initially brought us to good results on empiric tests.
The technology, despite being on a first level, looked very promising.
The main goal was and still is the industrialization of the heating process, and the reliability of the equipped hardware. Materials, production processes, assembling, tests, lab-analysis, and more are the foundation of the company, growing up in more than 20 years and about 100 equipped plants in 4 continents.
The research of Emmepiemme keeps improving.
We continuously develop and test new solutions for industries.
The R&D activities are actually conducted in cooperation with specialized research centers, where technology and know-how are shared to improve industrial treatments and hardware.
Emmepiemme also 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.
