Sterilization of meat in vacuum pouches

Case study meat in vacuum pouches

From product requirement to solution provided

Customer request : A producer of piglets in vacuum pouches wished to take advantage of the building of a new factory to evaluate the different thermal processing technologies existing on the market : cascading retort, air steam retort or steam cooker.

Proposal : R&D trials were organized in our laboratory with a Microflow. Following good results were confirmed : 
- Tenderness of the meat
- Cycle time reduced compared to steam cooker and air steam retort
- Perfect homogeneity of the water process at low temperature
- Less exudates inside the pouches thanks to the counter pressure.
These trials ended by a quotation for a cascading water asked by the client.

Design & Production : 1 Steriflow diameter 1300, 1 door with 3 extended  was proposed to the customer. These baskets have a double bottom enabling the redistribution of water between each layer. 

Delivery : Once again, this projet confirms that the Steriflow - with the cascading shower process - is definitely the best solution for vacuum packed products, and longtime / low temperature thermal treatment.
