Food processing is a transformation of cooked ingredients. Food processing combines raw food ingredients to produce marketable food products that can be easily prepared and served by, and to, the consumer.
Food processing typically involves activities such as mincing and macerating, liquefaction, emulsification, cooking (such as boiling, broiling, frying, or grilling), pickling, pasteurization, dicing, slicing, freezing or drying, as well as methods of preservation, canning and other packaging…. Each process requires expertise and highly specialized machinery which are selected according to the final products required and the necessary production capacity.
Main benefits of food processing include toxin removal and long life preservation making many kinds of foods safe to consume by de-activating spoilage and pathogenic micro-organisms, thus easing marketing and distribution tasks, and increasing food consistency.
The main treated products are Fruits, Vegetables, Fish and other sea food, Meat and Dairy.
Our equipment covers processes starting from primary and secondary treatments, straight through to packaging and end of line processing.
We work with selected suppliers of quality, new and used, food processing and packaging machinery, from leading manufacturers around the globe.

Recycling & Waste Management
Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. It is an alternative to “conventional” waste disposal. Recycling saves material and helps lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, thereby reducing: energy usage, air pollution and water pollution.
Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” waste hierarchy.
The recycling and waste management industry is highly prioritized in the worldwide.
The related equipment is designed to maximize uptime and throughput.
Today’s most marketable end-products are using cutting-edge technology for solid waste processing and recycling.
We have partnered with some of the largest Recycling & Waste Management companies, in order to offer our customers the best machines and equipment for their Recycling & Waste Management needs.
Solar & Power
Photovoltaics (PV) is the conversion of light into electricity using semiconducting materials.
A typical photovoltaic system employs solar panels, each comprising of a number of solar cells which generate electrical power. PV installations may be ground-mounted, rooftop mounted or wall mounted. The mount may be fixed or use a solar tracker to follow the sun across the sky.
Solar PV has specific advantages as an energy source: once installed, its operation generates no pollution and no greenhouse gas emissions, it shows simple scalability with respect to power needs, and silicon, the raw material, is largely availabe in the Earth’s crust.
Solar energy is one of the most important sources of power generation via renewable energy.
We have been partnering with some of the top companies in Solar & Renewable Energy worldwide for over a decade.

Water is an essential resource for all life on the planet. Of the entire water resource on Earth, only three percent is fresh water, and two-thirds of it is locked up in ice caps and glaciers. Of the remaining one percent, a fifth is in remote, inaccessible areas and much seasonal rainfall in monsoonal deluges and floods cannot easily be used.
Based on such facts, it is evident that Water Management is a topic of enormous importance.
Water management equipment are used in municipal wastewater treatment plants, as well as in many areas of industry such as pharmaceutical, chemicals, food processing, ophthalmic, etc…
The equipment’s aim is to collect and treat the wastewater so that it can be discharged safely into the environment or recycled.
Disctech is available to cooperate on such matters within all interested industries.
Welding & Cutting
Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion. This is very distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal.
In addition to melting the base metal, a filler material is typically added to the joint to form a pool of molten material resulting in a combination that is usually stronger than the base material. Pressure may also be used in conjunction with heat, or by itself, to produce a weld. Welding also requires a form of shield to protect the filler metals or melted metals from being contaminated or oxidized.
Welding joins work pieces, usually metals, by melting their edges so that they fuse together. The main process is arc welding.
Cutting is a compressive and shearing phenomenon, and occurs only when the total stress generated by the cutting implement exceeds the ultimate strength of the material of the object being cut.
Cutting is used to separate pieces of metal, wood, plastic sheets, structures and pipes. This is achieved by using any of the processes of flame, plasma or laser cutting.
These two industrial fabrication processes (welding and cutting) use high-speed & high-tech machinery to transform raw materials into machines and structures.
Leather is a durable and flexible material created by tanning animal rawhides, mostly cattle hide. It can be produced at manufacturing scales ranging from cottage industry to heavy industry.
