PEF System Handles Whole Fruits And Veggies

Diversified Technologies pulsed electric field (PEF) laboratory system for pre-treating whole pieces of fruits and vegetables lets users establish parameters for production scale-up. It is a fully integrated pilot system that can accommodate the pre-treatment of whole pieces of fruits and vegetables in 0.5-liter batches in addition to a liquified flow.  Capable of achieving up to an 80% reduction of drying energy or up to 50% increase in juice yield, this precursor system for drying, juicing, and frying lets users evaluate their process and create parameters for production scale-up.

 

Featuring 5 kV/cm in batch mode and up to 40 kV/cm continuous, Diversified Technologies’ Laboratory PEF System provides a 5-log pathogen kill and permits the quantification of process improvement.  Suitable for R&D, batch testing, and process development, it can now be rented for 1 to 3 months to allow cost-benefit calculations prior to considering a capital investment.
