Smart Machine Technologies designs and builds pasteurizers to help businesses in the food and beverage industry prolong the shelf-life of their products, ensuring they’re safe for consumption.
When you work with us, you gain access to various options for configurations, scale, and technical specifications, all of which enable us to build a pasteurizer that meets your exact operational needs.
Pasteurizer Applications and Industries
Pasteurizers, including both steam box and tunnel pasteurizers, are widely used in the food and beverage industry. Many liquid and particulate products should be pasteurized to see to it that they’re safe for consumption.
Our pasteurizers can process any liquid or particulate product, all while making sure not to affect the initial quality or flavor.
Products our machines can handle include:
- Salad dressing
- Baby food
- Canned goods
Pasteurizing these products needs to be done carefully to prevent loss of flavor or inconsistencies in texture, yet heating the product just enough to kill off any bacteria or other pathogens.
At Smart Machine Technologies, we can design a pasteurizer system that accomplishes just that, whether you need a steam box pasteurizer or a tunnel pasteurizer.
Steam Box Pasteurizers
We design steam box pasteurizers to treat large batches of product at a time. These pasteurizers consist of a large chamber in which batches of product can be treated all at once.
With our steam box pasteurizers, you need to simply place the palletized product inside the chamber, close it up, and wait for the process to complete. Steam is used to evenly and safely heat bottled or canned product at a rate that won’t damage the packaging, yet which will still ensure the product is completely safe for consumption afterward.
The advantages of steam box pasteurizers include:
- Custom volume – Pasteurize products in batch sizes based on your production volumes
- Versatility – Process any type of product independent of production lines
- Reliability – Each of our pasteurizers is built to last
Tunnel pasteurizers are composed of a series of chambers where product is heated either directly or indirectly. Steam, continuous water sprays, or hot water baths are used to gradually heat a product as it passes through each chamber, making sure proper temperatures are reached without damaging bottles or cans.
Our tunnel pasteurizers can be scaled to match the volumes that pass through your production lines, making them ideal for recurrent manufacturing processes.
The advantages offered by tunnel pasteurizers include:
- Speed – Tunnel pasteurizers can rapidly process large volumes of product
- Continuous operation – Pasteurize product as part of an automated production line
- Reliability – A built-to-last system is vital when used as part of an automated line
