Marchesini Group’s TurboMek was introduced in 2017, but a new version of the TURBO-MEK 1000 vacuum turbo-emulsifier for processing liquid and cream products appeared at PACK EXPO Las Vegas offering a more compact and eco-friendly design.
The global skincare market size alone was valued at over $129 billion in 2020 per Grand View Research, and this is likely to be bolstered further by escalating demand for face creams, sunscreens, and body lotions across the globe.
The system is produced by Dumek, a Marchesini Group company that specializes in machinery for processing cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. The new TURBO-MEK 1000 has been designed to accommodate hygiene and cleaning guidelines with energy and water savings during wash cycles.
The system’s energy efficiency is thanks to Dumek’s patented SMART TC, an intelligent control system which offers energy savings during the heating and cooling stages, as well as more precise control of processing stages for greater repeatability.
High efficiency sprayballs facilitate tank cleaning and a fully automatic clean-in-place (CIP) system allows optimization of wash water consumption.
The turbo-emulsifier features a new touchscreen control panel designed to interface with mobile devices for monitoring and control of processing parameters. A large internal database allows for storage of production recipes. The new version can be easily integrated into a production environment with centralized management using MES/MOM systems.
