The Aeolus Pneumatic Lactose Transport System -developed in cooperation with a major dairy company- prevents lactose buildup during pneumatic transport. This reduces the need for cleaning up to 12 times and drastically reduces downtime.

  • Prevents lactose build-up in pneumatic transport
  • 8-12% more production days a year
  • Huge savings on labor costs

Gigantic time savings in hygienic production processes

In the dairy and food industry, fouling of lactose transport pipelines is a major problem. To ensure product safety and quality, lactose-containing products are often processed in hygienic production processes. Due to the strict hygiene requirements, cleaning pneumatic conveying systems is a time-consuming and labor-intensive job. The piping of the conveyor system has to be disassembled, after which it has to be cleaned with hot water. To prevent bacterial growth, the pipes must be completely free of moisture before the system can be reassembled.

8 to 12% more production days a year

The cleaning process mentioned above takes several days at a time and often needs to be repeated every 8 weeks. With the new Aeolus System, you prevent lactose accumulation, reducing the need to stop production for cleaning up to 12 times. This can result in 8-12% more production days a year. In addition, it results in huge savings on labor costs.

The Aeolus Pneumatic Lactose Transport System in brief

  • Prevents lactose build-up in pneumatic transport
  • Up to 12 times less cleaning required
  • 8-12% more production time each year
  • Enormous savings on labor costs
  • Maximum product flow at all times due to retained passage diameter
  • Continuous product quality due to an absence of product contamination
  • Longer system life through reduced wear and tear thanks to smooth product flow
  • Less chance of system damage due to mechanical removal (with hammers) of accumulated lactose
  • Reduced risk of contamination and bacterial growth as less frequent opening and cleaning of systems is required
  • Broadly applicable for pneumatic transport of different products

Continuous product quality thanks to maximum passage diameter

The Aeolus concept also improves product quality; because there is no more accumulation of lactose, the passage diameter in the tubes remains at a maximum during transport. This results in continuous product flow and quality, as there is no more product accumulation and therefore no loss of transport speed, no damaged particles and less chance of bacterial growth and product contamination.

How it works

The Aeolus Lactose Transport System is specially designed for pneumatically conveying lactose and lactose-containing substances to prevent lactose build-up. The innovative shape and construction of bends and corners minimize friction, turbulence and wear. Less abrasion around corners prevents fouling. Instead of using coatings, the product design of the various components such as bends and switches has been optimized. The Aeolus transport concept is also suitable for transporting other (lactose-free) substances at risk of fouling.

What customers say about us

Quadrupled production capacity

In collaboration with Dinnissen, we have quadrupled our production capacity from 3 to 12 tons per hour.


Harald Schmalwieser- Managing Director - Solan

Six-fold increase of total production

Production has gone from 3-5 tons per day to 30 tons per day. That's a six-fold increase in total production.

Nöll & Co.

Michiel de Boer- CEO - Nöll & Co.

Filled three complete factories

Dinnissen has filled an entire factory for us with a complete production line, on three different occasions. They just get it right: from mixers and sifters to sampling and automation.

Jonker & Schut

Erik Schut- Managing Director - Jonker & Schut

No challenge is too big

At Dinnissen, they think in terms of challenges, not problems. They don't give up and keep going until there is a solution that satisfies all parties.

United Petfood

Martin Sonneveld- Production Director - United Petfood Waalwijk

Service on weekends

One day there was an important issue and one of Dinnissen's engineers immediately took action during the weekend. I have never seen other foreign partners do this.

APTe Japan

Mr. Kimio Aono- Founder - APTe Japan

Technicians, not salespeople

Dinnissen's representatives strive for the best solutions. They are engineers first and salespeople second.

Van Zutven

Frans van Zutven- Founder and Director - Van Zutven

World player in process technology

To realize production processes of the best quality, we work closely with Dinnissen: One of the strongest players in the world in process technology and hygienic design.


Gerben Koopmans- Project Engineering Manager - Nestlé

Mixers have been running 30 years

Dinnissen machines may not be the cheapest in terms of purchase price, but in terms of value for money, there are none better. Our Dinnissen mixer has been running extremely reliably for 30 years.

VDV Group

Adwin van der Vorst- Directeur - VDV Group

High-quality vacuum coaters

We chose to work with Dinnissen because they supply high-quality vacuum coaters that fit exactly within our production lines.
