Intensification of our foreign activities Fair promotion 2018

Jürgen Löhrke GmbH, one of WTSH's premium partners, will receive support from the state economic program at the capital goods trade fair "BrauBeviale 2018" in Nürnberg (13.-15.11.2018). The fair serves to intensify foreign activities and open up new target markets for automated hygiene solutions for the food and beverage industry, here with a regional focus on Europe.

PULSED LIGHT STERILIZATION OF VILSA CLOSURE: Cost-efficient alternative to peracetic acid baths

Vilsa source lies in the midst of untouched nature in the German state of Lower Saxony and is several thousand years old.
"Our VILSA mineral water is a gift of nature: naturally pure, mild in flavor and with a balanced mineral profile. Untouched for millennia, it is nature’s purest miracle. To ensure that this remains the case in the future, we have prioritized the protection of natural resources, and it is no coincidence that it is an integral part of our corporate philosophy and the foundation of everything we do."
To preserve the premium quality of their sensitive products during all the shelf-life, Vilsa sterilizes their closures.

Until the end of 2012, the caps decontamination treatment was done with PES.

Running costs were high, maintenance expensive and limited freedom in the choice of the closure due to the use of lubricant made necessary because of the use of caps with firm sealing. Vilsa Brunnen was looking for a new sterilization process.
LOEHRKE as exclusive distributor for Claranor in Germany presented the Claranor Cap sterilizer.
Since then it’s 5 filling lines that have been equipped with the Pulsed light treatment.

Main advantages highlighted:

  • Filling of even sensitive products without microbiological issues

  • (>4.3 log reduction of the A. brasiliensis, Fraunhofer Institut)

  • Maximum freedom in the choice of the closure supplier

  • No sensory impact on the product compared to Peracetic acid baths process

  • Yearly costs much lower than peracetic acid baths.


We pulse together for a cleaner future!

In May, the Pulsed light Packaging Sterilization from Claranore, where also LOEHRKE campaign for, has been awarded by the Solar Impulse foundation, as one of #1000 efficient solutions to change the world!

A coherence of vision: We need to move toward a cleaner economy

In 2016, Bertrand Piccard and his team achieved the first world tour with a plane powered by solar energy. Their aim: demonstrating around the world that green technologies can bring us far beyond commonly accepted limits, and thus represent a solution for the preservation of our planet.

Shortly after his incredible record, Bertrand Piccard and the Solar Impulse foundation launched the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions. Their objective is to identify and promote 1000 technologies bringing solutions in any industrial sector, enabling to combine ecology and economic growth.

Since the creation of Claranor in 2004, Claranor is committed to bring to the beverage, food and pharma industries a sustainable alternative to the conventional (chemical or irradiative) packaging sterilization methods. LOEHRKE provides efficient process and hygiene solutions with the aim to save resources. Both companies follow the aim of a cleaner future and decided already in 2010 to cooperate. Pulsed Light is highly efficient, chemical-free, immediate and cost-saving. The technology is more and more considered as a smart alternative to former technologies.

Both share important values with the Solar Impulse project and Foundation:

  • Tenacity: like Bertrand Piccard, Claranor started in 2004. They had to overcome several difficulties to demonstrate the efficiency of our solution

  • Pioneer Spirit: Claranor sees applications of their technology beyond what is commonly admitted, and work to make them happen

  • Team spirit: the common commitment, creativity, and expertise of their team members enables to reach their goals. We have also the culture of partnership, with machinery manufacturers, who integrate our solutions in their lines.

This is why Claranor applied to the World Alliance for Efficient Solution Challenge. In May 2018, the Claranor Pulsed Light Packaging Sterilization was awarded as Efficient solution by the SI foundation, with the #1000 efficient solution label.

This recognizes the contribution of Claranor to build a cleaner world. This strongly motivates Claranor to increase their efforts in this direction.

Thanks to their worldwide communication, Solar Impulse will accelerate the awareness about the availability of technological solutions to the major environmental problems we are facing.

Because of their incredible record around the world, Bertrand Piccard and his team have gathered the interest of millions of citizens and could make them aware of the interest of technologies to resolve environmental issues. They intend now to transform this attention into action: The Solar Impulse foundation will mobilize and inspire business leaders and key decision makers.

Claranor will participate in the next months to support the SI Foundation in their actions when needed.

Every drop counts

The Solar Impulse Foundation highlights that pioneering solutions, clean, efficient and profitable, will help proving to the world that it’s not too late; everyone, government, businesses and institutions, have a role to play. At the end of the day, if everyone takes his part, it’s not an overwhelming challenge.

So, let’s pulse together for a cleaner future!

Latest lubrication technology in field test

Last month we started to test our latest belt lubrication technology HIGH PERFORMANCE LUBRICATION (HPL). The first results are promising.

HIGH PERFORMANCE LUBRICATION is a combination of the ULTRA DRY and the established LOEHRKE dry lubrication system. We are proud of the result of more than 30 years of experience. HPL was designed especially for high filling rates and difficult bottle shapes.

The control via an user-friendly app makes it easy to apply the lubricant exactly where it is needed. This enables the operator to reduce consumption to a minimum, it protects the environment and is lowering operating costs. Another major plus is the absence of fresh water. This means no waste water issues, preserves resources and the conveyor belts and floors stay dry. Dry equipment and floors is an important precondition to avoid microbiological growth while work safety is improved highly.

The innovative LOEHRKE HIGH PERFORMANCE LUBRICATION allows the application of a minimum amount of lubricant without aerosol formation. By means of the special nozzles, an extremely fine application is possible with uniform distribution over the entire width of the conveyor belt.

The combination with the brushes allows application of a metered quantity of liquid, which is released slowly. The concentrated lubricant is distributed uniformly as a very thin film on the surface of the conveyor belt. In this case, the film can be so thin that the application does not accumulate on the deflection rollers below the transporter.


  • Developed for state-of-the-art filling systems
  • High flexibility of the application volumes
  • High frequency, full spray pattern
  • Extremely low consumption
  • No use of fresh water
  • Dry conveyor belt system and floors


  • Exact controllable via app
  • Reduces operating costs
  • Increased working safety
  • No aerosol formation
  • Improved hygiene situation
  • Optimise and increase efficiency
  • Longer life of the conveyor belt system

Belt lubrication systems are a must for conveyor belts. Especially in the food and beverage industry, in addition to the optimal functioning, hygienic conditions must also be observed. The LOEHRKE systems are adapted according to your requirements and wishes. The different systems offer the right conditions for your production, together we will find the right solution.

Automated open plant cleaning also covers work safety

Manufacturing enterprises frequently consider the subject of cleaning as a necessary evil. Also the required chemicals are expensive and constitute a risk to work safety.

Thus switching from manual to automated cleaning processes is the only way to optimal production hygiene and reproducible cleaning results. Welcome side effects are improved work safety as well as significant savings of operational costs in the area of water, energy and chemicals.

LOEHRKE offers integrated hygiene solutions, which combines all tasks around the cleaning and disinfection of processes and filling: from conventional foam cleaning to preventive spray disinfection.

The PM Premixing Station is one hygiene component from LOEHRKEs open plant cleaning package. The PREMIX serves the automated premixing and storage of cleaning and disinfection media. It mixes water with the required chemicals, reliably and with constant concentration. At the same time, the system needs less maintenance. The pre-mixed cleaning and disinfection media is stored in the integrated tank. If necessary, an energy-efficient pump transports this solution from there to the application site.

Various advantages offered by the PM Premixing Station:

  • Greatly improved work safety and increased job quality due to absolutely minimized handling of chemicals

  • Savings of operational costs in the area of water, energy and chemicals

  • Protection of the system due to already thinned chemicals

  • Reproducible hygiene results due to a constant concentration of the cleaning and disinfecting solution

  • Reliable function even under varying water feed

  • Automated control and process monitoring

  • Entire housing made of stainless steel in hygienic design

  • Expandable due to modular design

LOEHRKE provides customized concepts, no matter if they include new investments, modifications of existing systems or even for system components. We gladly inform you in detail.

LOEHRKE is developing new methods in the disinfection technology to meet the present requirements in economics and hygiene.

The LOEHRKE chlorine dioxide double system "CDES DuoDIS" combines the advantages of a drinking water compliant and a material-friendly chlorine dioxide generation in a single system.

The chlorine dioxide system CDES DuoDIS is capable of preparing two chlorine dioxide solutions (blueDIS and yellowDIS) with different properties.

Drinking water compliant with blueDIS

The ClO2 solution designated as blueDIS is prepared from sodium chloride (NaClO2) and hydrochloric acid (HCl). It is permitted for the treatment of drinking water and can be produced very inexpensively.

Material-friendly plant disinfection with yellowDIS

The second solution is yellowDIS and is used for equipment disinfection. The use of media having a chloride content of 50 mg/l can even cause corrosion in stainless steel. Therefore, many customers want to keep the chloride content in the process water as low as possible. For this reason LOEHRKE has developed a virtually chloride-free ClO2 process that replaces the hydrochloric acid (HCl), which is responsible for the chloride supply, with sulfuric acid (H2SO4). Since chlorine dioxide generated from sulfuric acid is not approved for the treatment of drinking water, the yellowDIS solution may only be used for system disinfection(e.g. conveyor lubrication, filler flushing, CIP, cooling water treatment). A drinking water treatment still requires the blueDIS solution. The strict separation of the blueDIS and yellowDIS generation and dosing ensures that there is no mixing of the two solutions.

The CDES DuoDIS combines the advantages of a drinking water compliant and material-friendly chlorine dioxide generation in a single system. The ClO2 system can be set up centrally, for example in the chemical storage, and it supplies the injection points via the connected dosing pumps. Two dosing pumps are already pre-installed on the CDES DuoDIS. Other dosing modules can be connected optionally. The necessary points of withdrawal on the daytime chemical tank are already prepared at the factory.



  • no risk of corrosion
  • removes biofilm and prevents formation
  • flexibly usable and extendable
  • drinking water compliant
  • pressureless, safe process
  • low operating costs
  • low-cost production
  • user-friendly
  • high safety standard
  • reliable technology
  • low maintenance
  • process visualization on color touchscreen


  • A ClO2 system generates two different disinfectants
  • blueDIS - drinking water compliant (and low-cost)
  • yellowDIS - low chloride (generation with sulfuric acid instead of hydrochloric acid) - material-friendly
  • nitric acid (HNO3) is possible as an alternative acid component
  • no mixing of blueDIS and yellowDIS possible
  • two dosing pumps are pre-installed on the system, more can be connected optionally
  • reading of the measured values directly on the display (CDES or ClO2 Guard)
  • Outputs (analog, Profibus, Ethernet) can be integrated optionally

Any questions? We will gladly advise you,
