Hygienic design of closed equipment for the processing of liquid food, Due to distribution in residence time, not all products may reach the temperature required for pasteurisation or may do so for too short a time.

Hygienic Design Guidelines

However, microbial product contamination limits the shelf life of sensitive products which are not protected by any preservatives or stablised by their formulation. First Edition, September – These guidelines focus on air handling systems installed for food factory building ventilation and its air quality control. Incidental contact between lubricants and food cannot always be fully excluded and may result in contamination of the food product. Challenge tests for the evaluation of the hygienic characteristics of packing machines, Hygienic design and safe use of double-seat mixproof valves, This document does not consider any international or national building standards or safety standards e.

Both organizations exchange their draft guidelines and standards for expert review and comments before publication. Food technology organizations Science and technology in Europe. This document applies to the control of Legionella spp.

Ehegd main objective was to convey the reasons and requirements for hygienic welding and to provide information on how this may best be achieved. This document focuses on the overall concept of cleaning validation and is intended as a general guideline for use by food manufacturers and inspectors. First Edition, September – The introduction of the product into the processing system is a key step in maintaining the sanitation and integrity of the entire process.

Second Editon, May – Rotary valves are widely used in the food processing industry for continuous discharging, metering and dosing of dry particulate materials from or into attached plant components.

Guidelines – EHEDG

guidelinss It is advisable to conduct in-place cleanability trials see Doc 2 prior to this test in order to verify the hygienic design of the equipment. Why they are necessary, when and how they should be applied, how they work and which chemicals are used.

See Doc 1 for guidelines on continuous pasteurisation of liquid foods. Systems guidelimes storing and distributing water can involve hazards, which could cause water quality to fall below acceptable standards.


Gaskets of various types were tested for reliability and hygienic aspects using EHEDG cleanability test methods and repeated sterilisation. Liquid foods containing particulates are inherently more difficult to rocess than homogenous liquids due to heat transfer limitations in particulateeliquid mixtures and the additional problems of transport and handling.

Third Edition, Julyupdated June – The method is intended as a screening test for hygienic equipment design and is not indicative of the performance of industrial cleaning processes which depend on the type guuidelines soil.

Although applicable for use in all food production environments, care must be taken when using these guidelines in considering the actual conditions, product types and the hygienic risks of contamination. This document is superseded by Doc 35, recently published. Today, food process plants incorporate various multifunctional flow paths. It is important that the plant design takes into account factors affecting the hygienic operation and cleanability of the plant.

A method for the assessment of in-line sterilisability of food processing equipment Buy Buy Buy Buy Buy Buy Buy Buy Buy Buy Second Edition, July – Food processing equipment may need to be sterilised before use, and it is important to ensure that the sterilisation method guidelies is effective. Second Edition, June – Research has shown that hydrophobic membrane filters, with a pore size of 0.

It is not the intention to be prescriptive in specific validation requirements. These principles apply to open and closed manufacturing operations, surrounding facilities, all being cleaned either wet or dry. Ehevg correct hygienic design and maintenance of food production systems is considered as a prerequisite to fulfill these requirements.

General design criteria and basic material requirements for food applications are explained. This document provides guidelines to avoid these issues. A method for assessing the in-place cleanability of food processing equipment.

Third Edition, April – This updated guideline is meant to specify the technical requirements of pumps, homogenizers and dampening devices including their hygienic application in order to ensure a safe processing and production of food under hygienic conditions. A method for the assessment of in-line sterilisability of food processing equipment. Second Edition, June – Applications in the food industry require that spray drying should meet hygienic processing standards and all components in contact with product should be hygienically designed and preferably be EHEDG approved.

European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group

Passivation of stainless steel. Any cleaning liquid that leaks across such a seat will contaminate the product. This paper details the recommended procedure for assessing the suitability of an item of food processing equipment for in-line sterilisation.

See also Doc 1 on continuous pasteurisation and Doc 6 on sterilisation of liquid products without particles. The prevention and control of Legionella spp. Furthermore, with a minimum of product transfer between equipment, there guideoines the added advantages of gidelines more compact plant, lower energy consumption and reduced cleaning time. The requirements described in the guideline apply to all pumps intended for the use in safe food processing, including centrifugal pumps, piston pumps, lobe rotor pumps, peristaltic pumps, diaphragm pumps, progressive cavity pumps, screw pumps as well as to homogenizers and dampening devices.

This document describes a test procedure to determine whether equipment can be pasteurised by circulation with hot water.

However, it focuses upon sensors for the most common process parameters, particularly temperature, pressure, conductivity, flow, level, pH value, dissolved oxygen concentration and optical systems like turbidity or colour ehhedg. The guideline does not cover cyclonic types of separators, decanters, basket centrifuges or other types of devices. This document is superseded by Doc 35, recently published. In order to offer help to the industry in these questions, EHEDG has developed and published a variety of practical guidance documents on adequate hygienic design in different areas of food production equipment and machinery, as well as on the food manufacturing infrastructure.

This is the first in a series of documents that go eherg equipment design and covers installation and associated practices. Requirements for the machine interior include monitoring of critical decontamination parameters.

Hygienic Engineering of Rotary Valves in Process Lines for Dry Particulate Materials Buy Buy Second Editon, May – Rotary valves are widely used in the food processing industry for continuous discharging, metering and dosing of dry particulate materials from or into attached plant components. It gives guidance on design, construction and installation so that it does not adversely affect food safety and quality.

Hygienic packing of food products NOTE: They are intended for use by persons involved in the design, sizing, and installation of bag, big bag and truck discharging systems operating under hygienic conditions.
