ACTINI has more than 65 years of know-how and a worldwide reputation in the design, manufacturing and commissioning of pasteurization and sterilization equipment for food and phytosanitary liquids.

Thanks to the technologies developed and patented by the company, ACTINI has gradually specialized in the heat treatment of liquids under high constraints (heat-sensitive, viscous, etc.).

Its ability to innovate, combined with technical mastery and historical know-how have enabled it over the years to offer ever more efficient solutions in order to extend the shelf life of treated products while preserving their organoleptic qualities and their original functional properties without adding preservatives.

If you wish to carry out tests on your products without investing in the purchase of equipment, our pilot platforms are available for rent on our site in Evian (France) or on your site. We can thus accompany you in your project and make you benefit from our experience and our expertise.
