Over the years the partnership between HpE and Krones has grown exceptionally, making it inevitable to add the HST homogenisers to the HpE portfolio. This allows all Krone product/service offerings to fall under one UK distributor, including Evoguard Valves & Servicing including Ampco Pumps.

HpE Process are an independent supplier of Pumps, Valves, Tubes, Fittings, Tank Equipment, Mixers, Product Recovery Systems, CIP Skid Systems and Pigging. To expand the product range HpE wanted to offer something for high pressure homogenisation for the Food & Drink Industry. The partnership with HST [part of the Krones Group] will supply the industry of high quality, sanitary, and fully CIP-able equipment with the support of technical expertise, after sales support from HpE Process.

HST offers application technology, along with laboratory homogenisers for small scale testing and product development. A product bought under high pressure, is passed through an adjustable annular gap. During the passage, the product is subjected to extremely high turbulent, laminarly and cavitational force.


Under the influence of these phenomena fat-particles and / or agglomerates are broken up, reduced in size and distributed equally. The physical energy transfer increases stability, enhances taste, colour-intensity, consistency and shelf life. In many cases this even eliminates or reduces the amount of emulsifiers or stabilisers required. As a result, the high-pressure homogeniser very often is the most vital part in modern production lines.

The HL Homogenisers consist of positive displacement, reciprocating high pressure pump, fitted with homogenising valve assembly, specially selected for each application.
