Proper buffering helps to maintain high levels of throughput, up to 98%, allowing the user to operate at the lowest cost per pound possible day in and day out.
White Pigeon, MI (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
Natural Drinks is a Brazil-based company with a passion for delivering the highest quality, freshest fruit beverages that technology and innovation will allow. Natural Drinks delivers a fresh juice cocktail line called Caipi One that has revolutionized the fresh fruit alcoholic beverage drink landscape through a firm commitment to delivering the freshest juice in their mixed drink beverages. Because of Natural Drinks focus on “fresh” they were quick to adopt High Pressure Processing and recently purchased an Avure™ 350L High Pressure Processing Machine. HPP is a cold water ultra-high pressure based technology that can drastically extend the shelf-life of totally fresh products.
In High Pressure Pasteurization all natural food products, such as juice, are submerged, in water and then subjected to incredible water pressure. Under the intense pressure the spoilage microbes are drastically reduced. The end result is a shelf life extension of between 2x and 3x the shelf life of the product in its natural state. “HPP presents an outstanding new layer of food safety and opens the door for new innovation for food manufacturers globally and can be implemented into all existing food manufacturing operations,” states Vice President of Business Development, Jon Jurhs.
Natural Drinks quickly recognized that to implement High Pressure Processing into a high volume production facility they would need the right automation solution. All Natural Freshness worked with Natural Drinks to develop a total HPP Buffering and Material Handling solution that would maximize throughput on the HPP operation, keep pace with the juice manufacturing operation, and assure the highest quality product possible.
All Natural Freshness’ goal is to bring HPP to the masses by providing solutions that allow companies to have “the lowest cost per pound with the fewest touches possible.” To make that possible ANF has developed a solution that offers customer specific levels of automation versus manual operation and, the key to the whole puzzle, a stackable, moveable, shipping ready buffering system. The minimum recommended amount of product buffer in a high volume HPP operation is 1 – shift. By buffering an entire shift of product, ready for High Pressure Processing, machine owners give themselves the flexibility to endure any of the issues that can cause diminished throughput. “Proper buffering helps to maintain high levels of throughput, up to 98%, allowing the user to operate at the lowest cost per pound possible day in and day out,” states Gerald Ludwick, President of All Natural Freshness.
“We went to the industry leading company for High Pressure Pasteurization automation solutions to ensure our HPP operation performed with the highest efficiency, and secure our fresh juice line so as to deliver the safest fresh juice in the market,” says the Ricardo Ermirio, CEO of Natural Juice.
All Natural Freshness is pleased to announce Natural Drinks has adopted the industry leading High Pressure Processing Material Handling and Buffering System. All Natural Freshness High Pressure Processing Material Handling and Buffering Solution is compatible with Avure™ 350L and the Fresher Evolution HPP, Evolution Series of Machines. “We have a commitment to continuous improvement and innovation, that is focused intently on giving our customers the safest and most efficient HPP Solution possible,” states President, Gerald Ludwick.
