Baby food sterilisation and pasteurisation

Measurement devices and expertise adapted to baby food sterilisation or pasteurisation

Temperature measurement

For baby food sterilisation, the respect of heat process is a priority to perserve nutrients. Axitherm offers 3 models of data loggers suitable for temperature measurement. HeatLOG, ThinLOG or AXImicro loggers are designed for all your demanding applications:
• Extreme miniaturization for all the finest and smallest packaging.
• Supports vacuum and high pressure.
• Perfect for thermal mapping with a high density load.

Monitoring of deformations during baby food sterilisation

For parents, the first indication of the quality of a product to give to their baby is the physical appearance of the packaging. Perfect geometry is therefore important for both safety and marketing.
The probe for direct reading of deformation of pots and plates is common in baby food sterilisation.
• Can be placed on all sides to solve targeted defects.
• Adjustment of process to optimize thermal transfer or reduce packaging thickness.

The vacuum measurement in baby food sterilisation

Another important thing to guarantee the appearance of the packaging is the respect of its internal vacuum:
• Digital display manometer.
• Qualifies capping and heat sealing injections (steam, gas).
• Measures the residual vacuum after treatment.
• Checks retort pressure.

Services and expertise for baby food sterilisation

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, paneling and curved.
• Process adjustment for new packaging and loading plans.


Energy savings on retort consumption:

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


Productivity gains:

• Reducing process time without compromising quality (stability and organoleptic).
• Ensure process time repeatability.


Study of retorts and tunnels:

• Thermal mapping, location of cold spot and homogeneity control.
