Process integrity, recipe compliance, and product reliability are basic prerequisites in food technology. Hygienic aspects and cleanability play a central role: The process must remain closed and contamination of the process media must be prevented in every phase of production.
LEWA supplies precise system solutions in the manner in which they are required in the food and beverage industry for processes such as homogenization, mixing, and filling.
Our products allow you to convey and meter, as well as process and homogenize.

Illnesses and allergies from contaminated food are all too commonplace unfortunately. That's why food safety, recipe compliance, and process integrity are top priorities for LEWA equipment. With our products, you can process and homogenize food and guarantee your end customers the best quality as a result.
Thanks to their hermetic seals, our products and systems prevent cross-contamination and contamination resulting from abrasion. And the optimum cleanability that they offer helps here too.
This is ensured thanks to a hygienic design that complies with national and international guidelines and standards. EHEDG certificates are available for the relevant products.
Perfectly designed pumps and process-safe systems for homogenization, for example, guarantee recipe compliance and reliable quality in the end product – always reproducible and economical, even over long periods.
We work together in technical commissions with end users and official agencies to create and review guidelines. This allows us to focus our actions on the current needs of customers and ensure that our knowledge is always up to date.
We deliver high-end pumps integrated into complete systems and units for your specific applications. In doing so, we of course rely on the tried-and-tested LEWA quality.
An especially important advantage for pharmaceutical and food industry is that our systems can be quickly and easily cleaned with cleaning chemicals or hot steam.
Our systems are extremely reliable and low maintenance. Thus, you can get the maximum out of your production and avoid costly downtime.
Highly polished surfaces and a minimal dead space construction are the basis for a system design that meets all the industry's hygienic standards.
We always deliver economic pumps, systems and units with minimized energy consumption, high efficiency, low maintenance and a long lifetime.
We design our systems and units in modular design with numerous engine and pump head combinations for different applications.
On request, we can build systems with special materials such as Hastelloy, titanium, duplex stainless steel or further materials. If you are interested, please contact our product manager.
Our patented diaphragm metering pumps use metal or PTFE sandwich diaphragms with Diaphragm Protection System (DPS) for maximum operational safety.
LEWA pumps, systems and units are compliant with major international standards such as DVGW G280, WHG, PED, ISO 9001, ASME, ATEX and TA-Luft. Of course, you can also define your own standards.
