Workers at a distillery

Food and Beverages

Explosive atmospheres are one of the special challenges facing the beverage industry – not only for alcohol-containing products, but also for the processing of ingredients of other soft drinks. BARTEC solutions have proven themselves for many years in the direct manufacturing process, such as that used in distilleries or soft drinks production, and in accompanying processes such as industrial label/packaging printing or upstream and downstream warehouse and shipping logistics.

Explosive atmospheres also regularly occur during the production and processing of solid foods, for example during flour processing or in various drying processes. Our experts understand the challenges of the food industry and use their decades of experience in explosion protection to ensure that our customers can concentrate on their core competencies. BARTEC stands for safety in the food and beverage industry.


Please note that BARTEC has sold the business of the Food & BMS division (moisture and infrared measuring instruments of BARTEC BENKE GmbH in Gotteszell and equipment for milk collection trucks and milk laboratories of BARTEC BENKE GmbH in Gotteszell) to Ultrakust GmbH with effect from 1 February 2024. For further information about these products please visit the Ultrakust website .

Explosion Protection in the Food and Beverage Industry

Process Control

Manufacturing processes in the food and beverage industry must meet particularly high requirements, whether to conform to manufacturers' quality stipulations or legal regulations. BARTEC facilitates this type of precise process control, even in potentially explosive atmospheres. BARTEC’s remote I/O systems have proven themselves for years in distilleries, where numerous process parameters such as temperature or flow are monitored and controlled. A tremendous variety of POLARIS HMIs are used to display the different production processes.

Ingredients Handling

Food and beverage manufacturers worldwide rely on BARTEC mobile devices when it comes to handling potentially explosive ingredients. BARTEC barcode scanners, tablets, and touchscreen/mobile computers enable safety and efficiency in inventory management, ingredient weighing, documentation, and batch management.
