Pasteurization Sterilization of prepared meals

Materials and expertise adapted to prepared meals

Temperature measurement

A range of sensors suitable for pasteurization and sterilization ready meals in autoclave or in continuous sterilizer :
HeatLOG for your current applications:
• Metal can, plastic tray, glass, bottle
• Autoclave tracking
• Pasteurization by microwave
AXImicro for all your demanding applications:
• Extreme miniaturization for all the finest and smallest packaging ( club box, 1/6 P, pocket…)
• Designed to withstand vacuum, pressure and vibration

Deformation monitoring

Probe for direct reading of the deformation of your flexible packaging :
• Steers 360° to track all side of pakaging and study targeted defects
• Adjust retort schedule to eliminate appearance or watertightness defects on trays, optimize thermal transfers or reduce packaging thickness

The vacuum measurement

• Digital display manometer
• Qualifies capping and heat sealing injections (steam, gas)
• Measures the residual vacuum after treatment
• Check autoclave pressure

Services and expertise in heat treatment

Product development and improvement

• Optimization of cooking without changing the desired stability
• Improved material yield


Elimination of packaging deformations

• Identification of the origin of the leaks, flat and curved
• Scale adjustment for new packaging and loading plans


Energy savings on autoclave consumption

• Reduction of steam and compressed air exhausts
• Gain in cooling efficiency to reduce water consumption


Productivity gains

• reducing cycle time without compromising quality (stability and organoleptic)


Study of autoclaves and tunnels

• Mapping, cold spot search and homogeneity control
• Validation of the sterilizing value by heat penetration study
