The pilot is a multi-functional retort machine, which can realize spraying (water spray, oscillating, side spray), water immersion, steam, rotation and other sterilization methods. The combination is suitable for the new product development laboratory of food manufacturers, formulating the sterilization process of new products, measuring the F0 value, and simulating the sterilization environment in actual production.
Electric heating system has been equipped with the retort to provide heat for sterilization. Users can use it without boiler. It is especially suitable for small capacity production manufacturers and R&D department. It can also used for developing new products in the lab, researching new sterilizing formula which could emulate the sterilization process of bulk production and provide scientific data for the new sterilizing formula.
Pilot retorts are typically small in size and can process a relatively small batch of food products, ranging from a few hundred grams to a few kilograms. They can be used to simulate a range of retort processes, including steam retorts, water immersion retorts, and rotary retorts.
1.Cost-effective: Pilot retorts are relatively inexpensive compared to commercial retorts, making them a cost-effective solution for small-scale processing and product development.
2.Flexibility: Pilot retorts can be customized to meet the specific needs of a particular food product, including temperature, pressure, and time parameters.
3.Reduced risks: Using a pilot retort allows food manufacturers to identify and address any potential issues or risks before scaling up to commercial production.
4.Optimization: Pilot retorts can help food manufacturers optimize their processing parameters to achieve the desired quality and safety of their products.
5.Testing new products: Pilot retorts are commonly used for testing and developing new food products, as they provide a small-scale environment to test and optimize product formulations and processing methods.
In summary, pilot retorts are an important tool for food manufacturers to develop and optimize their processing parameters for the production of safe and high-quality food products. They offer a cost-effective, flexible, and low-risk solution for small-scale processing and product development.
