In New Zealand, a three month test of a new Pulsed Electric Field Technology (PEF) unit from Elea, from Germany, started at McCain Foods Timaru and involves industrial-scale food processing of french fries.
Exclusively for PotatoPro readers we can now show you a video of the industrial application of a Pulsemaster Conditioner Pulsed Electric Field system at industrial scale, treating the full line load of potatoes (60 tons/hour) for a large French Fry line.
Pulsemaster, a global leader in Pulsed Electric Field systems for potato processing, supplied a PEF system to a major French Fry manufacturer four months ago. Now, Pulsemaster has received another order from the same company to supply a 100kW PEF system for a new processing line.
At SNAXPO 2018, Equipment Supplier to the Snack Industry Heat and Control will showcase the latest technologies, including Heat and Control's processing systems line-up, FastBack®, Spray Dynamics®, Ishida®, and CEIA®.
With Pulsed Electric Field Treatment increasingly replacing the traditional preheating step in potato processing, insight and quantification of the effect of the PEF treatment on the potato becomes more and more important. The Membrana by Pulsemaster makes conductivity measurements of untreated and treated potato easy to apply.
