Food Processing & Distillery

LTi can offer a range of specialist design and fabrication services for the food processing and distillery industries including machines, pipes, tube components and sterilisation equipment.

In this industry hygiene is absolutely paramount, so it’s critical that any materials and techniques used allow the thorough cleaning of surfaces and inhibit microorganism growth. Surface materials also need to prevent the transferral of flavours or odours when they are used, so there is no contamination from one batch to the next. LTi has strong capabilities and experience of working with clients in this sector and is fully compliant with the metal fabrication requirements of food and drink applications.

LTi is able to fabricate from a wide range of stainless steel grade materials, whose non-toxicity and corrosion resistance makes them ideal for use in food environments, with the ability to withstand any compounds or liquids used to clean them. Through the use of advanced techniques including TIG welding and ensuring the fabrication of smoothly bonded seams throughout, the structures LTI manufactures are able to prevent the accumulation of food particles and dirt.


LTi offers advanced welding for food handling, food preparation and food processing equipment and covers a wide range of specialisms within the industry including confectionary, dairies, meat, FMCG and water treatment breweries markets.
