Raw material for obtaining them are fish oil or algae. Manufacturers place great emphasis on a hygienic design of the production plant in order to ensure a secure production of omega – 3 fatty acids.

"The hygienic screw pump is a very interesting alternative to the usual displacement and centrifugal pumps for us, because it can do both conveying products and cleaning the plant in place (CIP)," said Harald Kjearstad by the Norwegian company HPK Consult. "This saves us not only a centrifugal pump including pipes for CIP / SIP cleaning, but also brings significant benefits in terms of hygiene: The fewer components in the system are installed, the fewer sources of contamination can occur."

In Alesund, Norway, a seminar for the fish processing industry was held recently. It was organized by Lars Frost of Froster AS, the Wangen Pumpen distributor in Norway.
