Suitable for all types of food, small batch cooking, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, confectionery, dairy and bakery products. Aseptic processing. Cut/cook/cool NPD vessels.
- Autoclaves and Retorts:
- Pasteurising and sterilising of pouches, cans, glass, plastic trays and cartons. Patented process for compostable board ready-meal trays. Cooking of components such as rice, meat, vegetables, marinades and dressings, sauces and pet foods, Heating media includes: steam/air/water with static, rotary and agitating action. Pilot scale retorts for NPD. Autoclaves for timber, carbon fibre, rubber and glass treatment.
- Scraped Surface Heat Exchangers:
- SSHE for delicate processing especially of fruit, sauces, soups, dairy and bakery ingredients. Aseptic fruit and dairy processing. Heating, cooling and temperature boosting.
- Tunnel pasteurisers and coolers:
- Continuous in-container pasteurising and cooling of products such as sauces, pickles, preserves, fruit ingredients, ready meals and vegetables. Double deck and pilot pasteurisers. Steam, raining water and water bath versions.
- High pressure pasteurisers:
- UHDE as part of Thyssenkrupp has pioneered advances in high pressure processing technology, which eliminates micro-organisms without the need to heat the product. This has the benefit of ensuring food safety, whilst maintaining all organoleptic properties.
- Sterilising, roasting and toasting technology:
- Revtech's patented system has received approval for a validated 7 log reduction in microbial bodies and is capable of highly consistent decontamination of dry ingredients. Particularly suitable for flours, grains, malt, nuts, seeds and spices.
- Jar, bottle and can rinsers, using water, air, steam or product. Optional gas flushing.
- Fillers and closers:
- For food and non-food applications.
Piston, vacuum, aseptic, pickle and volumetric fillers. Jar and bottle capping. Single head, rotary and vacuum can seaming.
Cappers, including trigger and pump. In-line, rotary weigh, volumetric and flow-meter fillers. Puck/depuck lines.
