Enhancing a stainless reputation
Axium Process, a leading specialist in stainless steel system fabrication which supplies to companies throughout the hygienic industries both in the UK and abroad
At ERIKS, we have a reputation for technical know-how and engineering skill. Our ability to design, build and install custom plant solutions, or to improve existing plant, is second to none, and we have major clients across all sectors of industry. Partly this is due to our in-house expertise and advanced resources such as our Technical Centres. But it's also because we work closely with carefully chosen partners - acknowledged experts in their field with outstanding track records. And one such partner, recently added to our network in the UK, is Axium Process, a leading specialist in stainless steel system fabrication which supplies to companies throughout the hygienic industries both in the UK and abroad.
We're delighted to be working with Axium for a number of reasons, not least the fact that the company complements ERIKS' own ability to analyse process requirements, recommend an effective solution - then install and commission that solution quickly and cost-effectively. Another reason is the breadth of Axium's fabrication capabilities, which range from pressure vessels, manifolds, jacketed assemblies and flow plates, to the design and build of membrane filtration systems for the recovery of water and effluent treatment. The company extends ERIKS' capability by providing a valuable further resource in the form of in-house machining, fabrication and polishing, as well as orbital and manual welding.
Operating from a modern 10,000 square-foot facility, Axium will also work with us to provide services ranging from the rapid production of high-quality adaptors and manifolds to fully integrated, customised hygienic process plant. Designing in accordance with ASME-BPE principles, Axium's emphasis is on best practice hygienic engineering, and the company uses the very latest technologies, training, systems and procedures, to ensure that it fully complies with the stringent standards of the pharmaceutical industry relating to hygienic design, manufacturing quality, surface finish and inspection.
Filtration too, is another important aspect of Axium's capability. Of course, ERIKS' reputation in this arena is already strong, as we offer a range of leading-brand filtration products not available from any other supplier. Furthermore, we have the experience and the know-how to design, build, install and commission a solution for any specific application, through our outstanding team of design and application engineers.
But, by working with Axium, this capability is even stronger. That's because the company specialises in manufacturing custom filtration systems, process equipment, components, tube and pipe fittings primarily to the pharmaceutical, food and beverage and dairy industries. Unique in their skill designing and manufacturing membrane filtration systems, Axium also manufactures its own range of filters and sample valves which have been designed for both hygienic and general fluid processing applications. The company also stocks a comprehensive range of tube and pipe fittings.
Axium's product range is the perfect complement to ERIKS' own industry-leading range, and includes stainless steel filters with interchangeable elements from 25 - 6000 micron, sample valves, tube and pipe fittings (clamp, RJT, IDF, DIN, SMS, plain-ended, BSP), sprayballs, sightglasses and tank manways for low and high pressure applications, and valves (butterfly, ball, non-return and pressure).
For reliable and even innovative hygienic process and plant equipment developed using the HACCP methodology, the combination of ERIKS broad range of engineering with Axium's specialist capability are a clear winner.
