Hiperbaric strongly believes that in order to maintain its leadership position as High Pressure Processing equipment manufacturer for the food industry, R&D is essential.

Hiperbaric invests between a 7% and a 10% turnover in R&D. The company achieves individual and numerous projects in collaboration with other companies and research organizations.

It also collaborates in various regional, national and international R&D projects co-funded by the Castilla y León Government (ADE), Spain Ministry of Trade and Industry (PROFIT and CDTI), ant the European Union (6th and 7th Framework Program).


From the early days of Hiperbaric, when the first HPP prototypes were under design, to the latest times of big international projects, R&D has always been a constant presence. The technological advances achieved are the main reason of our success.

Consequence of innovation and looking toward other applications, in 2010 the company installed the first HPP machine intended to pharmaceutical applications

There are two main research lines:

  • Improvement in equipment design and production. Presently Hiperbaric is providing the biggest, fastest and most reliable HPP equipment, specially adapted to the high demanding production environment of the food industries.
    Hiperbaric range is internationally recognized as the current world standard in HPP equipment for food industries.
  • Collaborating with laboratories, technological centres and public and private companies (from SME´s to big international groups) Hiperbaric helps with development and improvement of new innovative food concepts using High Pressure Processing.
