MILLIS, MA – Radio Frequency (RF) Pasteurization of food products was introduced by RFC in the 1960s and has since then grown into one of the preferred methods for the pasteurization of dry food ingredients, spices and protein supplements, including both animal and plant protein powders.
HERRSCHING – AVA recently received an order from a long-term customer from the food industry. This has been successfully producing on an AVA system for more than seven years.
MILLIS, MA – Radio Frequency Company has introduced a Macrowave Pasteurization System for batch or conveyorized applications for bagged or bulk product. In a Macrowave heating system, an RF generator creates an alternating electric field between two electrodes.
DOETINCHEM – Freeze drying (lyophilisation) has been used industrially for decades to preserve foodstuffs and organic materials. However, traditional tray-type freeze dryers have proven to be labour-intensive.
CALGARY, AB – Fluid bed technology is used for cooling, heating and drying of bulk solids materials. Fluid bed heat exchange takes place by passing a gas (most commonly air) through a perforated distributor plate which then flows through a layer (bed) of solids.
From R&D to production scale the Twin-Jet nozzle achieves both single micrometers particle granulation and mass production.
CALGARY, AB – Drying of bulk solids is often required for preservation of the product and as a final step before storage. It also serves as a feed stock preparation step for adjusting the moisture content of the incoming material to the desired level for downstream processing.
SOMERSET, WI – With ever-increasing Federal regulation and general public concern with ponding fly ash from coal-fired power plants, there is an increased interest in fly ash beneficial re-use.
CALGARY, AB – Bulk solids cooling is a common step in many chemical processes. It generally occurs near the end of the processing sequence when powders or bulk solids must be cooled prior to storage or packaging to allow for safe handling and storage.
TELFORD, PA – Flash drying is very appealing to customers that require a fine, dry powder. The turbulent nature of the drying process de-agglomerates wet cakes, instantly drying and dispersing the wet material into a dry powder.
