Process optimisation

We offer food manufacturers to use the services of experts (process engineers) with experience in the largest international companies and the implementation of the most complex projects for the supply of equipment, its modernisation, launching new products, solving technical and technological problems that could not be solved by the technical team of the plant.
Our experts will assess the technological processes, advise the customer's specialists on the main indicators.
As a result, the client will get stability in product quality and improve the manageability of production.

You can spend months looking for a competent technologist. Or save time by contacting Viravix Engineering. You'll gain the knowledge and experience of a whole community of experts who have worked for industry leaders AB InBev and Molson Coors, as well as implementing projects for new and existing Heineken equipment.

The parable of the expert who could set up a steam boiler with a single blow of a hammer comes to mind: "The key is to know where to hit it".
Typical problems
The "headache" of all manufacturers is how to ensure stable product quality and at the same time reduce production costs.
The owner wants his production to meet the needs of the market, but not to consume a lot of energy. His goal is to sell more, avoid product returns and make a profit.

The technologist wants to control all the parameters of the production process that affect the quality of the product. He needs a stable and understandable mechanism that is easier to manage.

The chief engineer and technical specialists are responsible for the smooth operation of the equipment. It is important for them to avoid accidents, incidents and control the consumption of electricity, water, steam, carbon dioxide.

The quality specialist is responsible for the safety of the final product. Therefore, he wants to control the CIP-washing process of the equipment so that the quality complies with hygiene standards.

Everyone's motivation is different, but the goal is the same. The product must be liked by consumers, be safe from a sanitary point of view, and its production should not cost too much. A violation in at least one link nullifies the efforts of the whole chain.
Each return of a batch of goods to the manufacturer entails three groups of troubles at once.
  • Commercial - these are lost profits, fines for low-quality products and failure to fulfil obligations to customers.
  • Reputational - the consumer expects the products to be of high quality and sanitary safe. He does not see the production conditions and expects them to be compliant. Negative experiences undermine trust in the manufacturer.
  • Legal - lawmakers care about public health and impose strict requirements on food products, which are expensive to comply with, but not complying is even more expensive. These include legal costs, fines and even suspension of production.

It is difficult for a single professional to manage all the risks. They may not have the time or expertise to do so. Like AB InBev and Molson Coors, with hundreds of millions of hectolitres of beer on hundreds of different types of equipment from an army of different equipment manufacturers. That's where a community of independent experts can help.

Why can we be trusted?

Viravix Engineering is an international centre for food processing engineers. We bring together manufacturers and the best specialists.

Our employees have worked at AB InBev and Molson Coors in positions of expertise in technology, equipment, and maintenance
Each of them has worked his way up from an ordinary employee-operator to a consultant in a zonal structure with 10-20 breweries in different countries.
The brewing industry "word of mouth" knows our experts. Their knowledge and experience have already been appreciated by Heineken, Mondelez, Nestle, Unilever, Bunge and many domestic producers.

Our experts are fans of their work and are happy to share their knowledge and experience. To those who want to adopt the mix:

  • best practices from leading food manufacturers;
  • experience in the application of standards;
  • knowledge of the nuances of the work of components and systems of technological equipment, lines;
  • understanding of technological processes as a single system of interconnected elements.
And all of this is aimed at creating a quality and better product for the consumer. As fans of our business, we are constantly learning, sharing our experience, developing and applying new technical solutions, trying and experimenting, involving new tools and technical trends in our work.
How to get help from us
Getting started with us is simple. Experts need information about your enquiry, your process and technical information related to this enquiry.
This information can be collected remotely. So it is very affordable.

The COVID pandemic forced us to go remote, but there are even advantages for our clients. We have tested and proven that the remote working format is realistic today. For this purpose we use monitoring systems, one of which is the QiVisor web application.

It is a very convenient and simple thing that works as easily as a Wi Fi router. It can be connected to almost any production equipment and receive data from its sensors, components and systems.

What this format is good for you:
  • You save on expert fees
    Our engineer remotely analyses the data in the monitoring system, without travelling to the site. This reduces survey time by a factor of three. This means you spend less on hourly expert fees and no reimbursement of travelling expenses. Estimated savings of 340 euros per month.
  • Your specialists have access to the QiVisor system
    And they can control the production process themselves 24/7, from anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection. You get visualisation of the entire plant operation, timely notification of problems.
QiVisor Web
Example of work in the QiVisor Web interface in a brewery
All data is archived in the system and stored for three years. Best of all, you can easily copy the link from the web application, leave your note and question about the process and ask our experts that question. It's a unique experience that we recommend you try at least for a test.

Our experts can help you with the installation and configuration of the monitoring system for remote access. But you can also choose the traditional format of work - with an expert travelling to the sites.
How to get help from us
Stage 0
Leave a request on the website, by E-mail or by phone - any convenient way. Our specialists will contact you to discuss the details of the contract.
Stage 1
Together with your specialists, we install and configure the monitoring system on your equipment:

  • send the QiVisor hub (you only pay if you decide to keep it and continue to use the system);
  • help your engineers to correctly connect sensors to your equipment or transmit data in a secure way from your equipment (there may be a small cost for sensors at critical control points to resolve your enquiry);
  • send a file with the code you need to write to the controller software on your equipment (no cost, just a little work by your programmer);
  • customise the QiVisor (included in the price of the service).
Stage 2
We analyse the data from the monitoring system and send you regular reports. In addition, we advise your specialists on any problems that arise. We are always close to your technologists, your engineers, your quality specialists.
What is included in the result
Recommendations with technical solutions for operating the equipment. If you implement them, you will reduce your production costs.
Periodic conclusions and recommendations from a subject matter expert on the operation of the equipment and the correctness of the production process. You will see opportunities to optimise the technology.
Reducing the risks of human error in the production process. This way you can be sure of consistent product quality.
Notification by e-mail
Notify the responsible employee when a critical process deviates from the set parameters. You will reduce quality outliers, product losses, make timely changes to set parameters on equipment, minimise lost time for timely repairs, reduce accidents and respond to incidents more quickly.
