Stainless Steel Chocolate Tanks


The production of good quality chocolate requires a very specific production process. Gpi designs and manufactures tanks and process equipment specifically intended for the processing of chocolate. The chocolate tanks meet the highest quality standards and hygiene standards.

With chocolate it is very important that the melting process is carefully controlled. Our tanks can be equipped with a double jacket in one or more segments to control the temperature of the chocolate.

U-Z Agitator juice buffer tank

Choose the correct configuration

The correct tank/agitator combination

Let us take care of the agitator outside the tank. Gpi De Gouwe has years of experience in designing and making agitators and agitator combinations that perfectly match your juice processing process. A commonly used solution is the so-called UZ agitator. This agitator maintains the homogeneity of the product, even if the product contains fiber or pulp.

Heating and cooling

When storing juices and drinks, it is essential that the product remains at the right temperature. Ensuring the correct combination of heating/cooling capacity and insulation on the tank, to heat or cool your product within the desired time.

Submit your cooling/heating case directly to Gpi with your application, we are happy to think along about the most efficient solution. Whether this is a dimple, double jacket or half pipe.

Hygenic and reliable


Gpi has a lot of experience in building tanks and equipment for fruit juices, spirits, dairy, beer or other drinks and concentrates. For example, we can give the right advice about heating or cooling the product, building pressurized tanks (PED / AD2000) to preserve freshness and thinking about the necessary finishing of the tank for hygienic purposes.

With in-house engineering, production and quality control, we maintain maximum control over quality and guarantee solutions that meet the strictest requirements in terms of hygiene, safety, durability and ease of operation. It goes without saying that we work within the set international standards and regulations, if desired we can also produce according to the EHEDG guidelines.

Aseptic storage

It is essential that no unwanted bacteria or contamination gets into the juices. For the most demanding applications, Gpi is able to design and manufacture aseptic, or sterile, storage tanks. Aseptic storage tanks are designed very hygienically, are often under pressure and are protected against unsolicited external influences.
