Company's new QFP 525L-600 (525 liters), is the largest-volume high pressure processing (HPP) system available to date. The unit delivers 8,135 lbs. (3,690 kg) of HPP processing per hour. Its improved filling and pressurizing efficiencies achieve 10 cycles per hour with a 3-minute hold time. A 3" expansion in vessel diameter, to 18.5", accommodates larger-size packages, a trend growing in tandem with the influx of HPP products in semi-rigid packaging options. The system incorporates many innovations that boos productivity and increase efficiency, from footprint economy and speed of installation to safety enhancements and ease of maintenance.
