Food & Beverage Skid Systems



Garrett Industrial Systems has been involved in the food and beverage business for over thirty years. Our skid-mounted modular systems are designed and manufactured by IPEC, which was founded to serve the Food, Dairy, Beverage, & Consumer Product industries. We have since expanded our range of services, but maintain our place as the premier supplier of modular systems for these markets. Our capabilities include the systems shown below and beyond, including a variety of supporting Utility Systems.

    Media solutions serve many critical functions in research and manufacturing of bio-pharmaceutical products. IPEC Systems, offered by Garrett Industrial, provide controlled, repeatable production of these solutions, at small or large scales, for use in a wide range of operations. IPEC systems for batching, formulation, compounding, continuous processing, and buffer/media preparation are custom designed to meet your process specifications with efficient use of space and available utilities. Other modular systems such as CIP, Filtration, and HTST can be added for a complete production suite.

    Blending Systems offered by Garrett Industrial, incorporate ingredients into a continuous product stream utilizing flow meters, positive displacement pumps, flow control valves and static mixers. Ingredients can be supplied from totes or skid-mounted vessels. Instrumentation and components work together to blend ingredients dynamically and accurately to meet user-defined recipes and production rates. Integrated CIP capabilities, product recovery, and alternating ingredient vessels may be included.
    Our high-quality blending systems, are custom designed, engineered, and manufactured by IPEC, to provide years of copntinuous, reliable service.

    IPEC High Temperature Short Time (HTST) systems offered by Garrett Industrial are utilized by our customers in the Food & Beverage industry to heat and hold products at a specific temperature and time to ensure complete inactivation of microorganisms contained within solution.
    These systems can include product supply balance tanks, feed and booster pumps, homogenizers, and tubular or plate and frame heat exchangers which can be configured to provide regenerative heating/cooling for increased operational efficiency. Depending on the intended use, IPEC HTST Systems are available with instrumentation, design elements, and documentation required to meet USDA, FDA, and cGMP standards for legal pasteurization.

    Certain pharmaceutical products respond poorly to high temperature short time (HTST) sterilization. In these cases, bulk pasteurization can be the best solution for inactivation of microorganisms contained within solution. IPEC Bulk Pasteurization Systems (BP) offered by Garrett Industrial, provide accurate control of product temperature, exceptionally even heat distribution, and precise heat up/cool down rates required to pasteurize even the most sensitive products. Our custom BP systems are designed to meet or exceed your exact processing requirements and can be supplied with dedicated heat transfer or final filtration modules for a complete sterilization suite.

    IPEC custom transfer panels are offered by Garrett Industrial Systems tailored to your exact process and facility requirements to route and provide a physical break between CIP and process fluids as required by 3A processing regulations and cGMP’s.

    Regardless of the industry or application, we can assist with the specification and fabrication of simple flow plates or complex transfer and utility panels with integrated valves and instrumentation. Our panels are available in many design, material, and surface finish configurations to meet the specific specification.
    IPEC sanitary transfer panels can be supplied with any or all of the following optional features:
    • Inductive Proximity Switches
    • Bleed Valves (caps, ports, swings)
    • Drain Pans
    • Jumper Holder (shown at right)
    • Accessory Tray/Baskets
    • Laser Etched Identification/Tags (Ports/Swings)
    • Comprehensive Documentation Package
