Tetra Pak has released a new automated pasteuriser that offers flexible processing capability by switching between hot and ambient-filled products.
Tetra Pak Pasteuriser PF is a new flexible, automated solution for sauces, dressings, pastes, dips, soups and other prepared food applications.
The technology extends the company’s existing hot fill / high acid portfolio, with a machine that will switch readily between hot and ambient-filled products.
For food manufacturers, this multiple product capability provides a better opportunity to respond to shifts in market demand, moving from one recipe to another with a push of a button, securing consistent product quality.
Tetra Pak centre of expertise manager Anders Yngwe Söderstjerna said: "The user-friendly technology and level of automation incorporated within Tetra Pak Pasteuriser PF adds up to a compelling solution for a broad customer profile in the prepared food industry.
"A fair proportion of these are existing users of Tetra Pak equipment, for whom adopting this technology will provide opportunities to develop new revenue streams."
"Its competitively low cost of total ownership also positions it as the ideal point of entry system for companies that hitherto have been unable to access this market."
Tetra Pak Pasteuriser PF can be operated either as a standalone system or integrated with other Tetra Pak equipment on a processing line. Its modular format also allows for more functions to be added in stages.
