Containerised Process Plant

Perfect for startups or small scale production where flexibility is key.


The beauty of a containerised process plant is that you receive a specifically designed, fit for purpose process plant that is housed in a fully hygienic, fitted out container that is built to meet the highest international food grade standards. 


Container plants are ideally suited to small scale and start-up plants where future production levels are unknown. Purchasing a container plant will help keep your costs down, while you begin production and therefore entry into your target market while allowing for future flexibility.


Ideal for small scale production of:

  • Beverages or liquid food (eg. milk, juice, yoghurt, plant-based alternatives etc)
  • Liquid cosmetics (eg. skin cream)
  • Pharmaceutical products

You'll benefit from:

A turnkey hygienic plant - because we design, fabricate and install everything inside the container before it leaves our workshop, it will arrive on site ready to be commissioned by our team. You'll be up and running very quickly.

Minimal site work required - all you need to supply is the concrete pad for the container to sit on, and entranceways and covers for the necessary services. If necessary, the container can be moved to another site if required.

A bespoke plant built for you - Our design will take into account the daily volume you wish to process through your plant, the necessary equipment you will need (pasteuriser, homogeniser, pill press, etc) and the given flow rate for your products.

Lower setup costs - When you compare the alternative of building a permanent plant, the container plant concept will save you a significant amount of time and money.


The details:

Technical Design: The majority of your process plant is designed and fabricated within either a 20 or 40 foot shipping container or a combination of these.


Depending on your application, the only external elements of your plant will be the piping for water connection, boiler, chiller and raw product tank, that may already be housed outside of the container

During the Build: While the team are fabricating your container plant you are able to check the progression of the plant via the internet.


We can install a monitor within the container that takes periodical photos for you to look at, while also providing you access to log into the camera and see what is happening in real-time.


This aspect of the build helps you to stay informed with what is going on and when you can expect the plant to be finished.


Site Installation: Once the process plant fabrication has been completed, our team will commission the plant within our workshop.


We will make sure everything is running the way that it should before we send it to site. Once both fabrication and commissioning is complete we will have the container transported to your location.

When the container arrives our highly skilled engineers will come to your site and carry out all the work necessary to get you up and running.


Training: This is a very important aspect that needs a lot of consideration. Although many people that contact Thermaflo have experience working in a process plant before they purchase a container plant, there is still a lot to learn in the daily operations of the plant.


Our team are able to teach all personnel involved in plant operations the correct way to operate the equipment. We will show you how to avoid waste, comply with industry-standard and make your final product. 


Compliance: Internationally there is very high compliance for the production of food, health care and pharmaceutical products.


We will work closely with you to make sure that the products you are producing are safe for human consumption and that you are operating to the highest food safety standard. This will allow you to produce a safe, quality product, without worrying about product fault.


After Sales support: This includes both preventative maintenance service support on a scheduled programme as well as on the phone support for the operators and local tradesmen.
