AVA Full-Service Capabilities

As a full-service company, AVA offers a complete range of services within its core competence of mixing and drying.

Providing an individual solution for your particular application is our top priority. This starts at basic planning, testing, calculation and 3D modeling, and carries right through to commissioning, training, and on-site service.

Smooth Process Flows

The innovative AVA process engineering solutions showcase our industry expertise and technology leadership in various areas. From engineering to implementation of complete package units including the necessary control at the level of automation you want, we guarantee a significant reduction of your interfaces and thus ensure smooth, cost-effective processes.

Demo Center

The AVA Demo Center: trials, scale-ups, and more.

Series of tests performed on mobile trial units or in the AVA Demo Center ensure safe and cost-effective project planning – whether as an assurance test or for new product development. You can be on site in person or join via web cam.

The innovative AVA Demo Center accommodates horizontal and vertical systems, thus facilitating a wide range of process variants for mixers and ring layer mixers, drying mixers, reactors, and evaporators. A vast range of devices and processes is supported, from helix systems to single-shaft mixers, from pressurized to vacuum designs, as a high-temperature or cooling process.

Your application requirement is our blueprint

With experience and product expertise, our engineers support your test series and define the optimal process engineering system solution.

  • Stipulation of temperature, pressure, rotation speed, power consumption, and other operating parameters
  • Heat transfer calculation
  • Clarification of product behavior under mechanical and thermal stress
  • Stipulation of all optimal process conditions

The resulting data is written to disk and recorded in logs. A test report summarizes the findings, and the test results enter into the production machine quote as a scale-up.

Experience the many facets of AVA for yourself.

Mixers, dryers, innovative solutions for starch industry

Chemically modified starches (from potatoes, corn, tapioca, wheat, peas, and others) are used in papermaking, among other applications, to improve paper strength. The wet process is used most frequently in this case. The starch is slurried in water, then the cationizing agent is added to cause it to react. The starch remains in a suspension throughout the entire process until drying. However the drying method is more economical. In this process, natural starch powder is intensively mixed with the cationizing...
