Measures and technical report for the export of low acid food / cans to the USA
Aim :Provide documentation with the data required for declaration of sterilised or pasteurised products (acidified products) to the American authorities
Methodology for FDA mapping
• examination of installations, power intakes, loading plan
• Temperature distribution.
This corresponds to chamber mapping
• Heat distribution.
This analysis is used to check that the addition of compressed air in the autoclave does not interfere with the heat transfer process
• Heat penetration.
This entails validating the sterilising value at the heart of the product
• Analysis of readings and interpretation with regard to the criteria for success recognised by the FDA
• Determination of thermal process data to be included on the declaration form
Qualification of any type of autoclave
Use of calibrated measurement equipment
Drafting of administrative documentation in English
Remote technical support during the submission phase through to validation of the documentation
