FOOD MANUFACTURING WHITE PAPER

White Paper: The Art Of High Shear Mixing

The high-shear rotor/stator mixer (HSM), once relegated to a relatively narrow niche of mixing applications, has become a mainstay in many applications in the chemical process industries. The ability to apply intense shear and shorten mixing cycles gives these mixers broad appeal for applications that require immiscible fluids to be formulated into emulsions, or agglomerated powders to be dispersed into a liquid medium.

Accurately Measuring Fat Content Of Ground Beef

This white paper discusses chemical lean and its significance in the meat industry, as well as several of the current methods of measuring it and their applicability for current market pressures.

The Principles of Due Diligence For Quality Control and Legal Defense

The white paper explains the importance of identifying foreign body contaminants in food and can be used as a checklist to evaluate the various metal detectors and x-ray inspection systems on the market.

Does Rheology Matter To Manufacturing

You bet it does, whether or not manufacturing realizes it. Rheology is the science that looks at how materials flow. Whether the product is a liquid, cream, paste, or solid, the manufacturing process must transfer raw ingredients through multiple stages to create the finished product. By Robert McGregor, Global Marketing and High End Product Manager, Brookfield Engineering Laboratories, Inc.

FOOD MANUFACTURING APPLICATION NOTES & CASE STUDIES

  • Minimizing Quality Risks For Canned Food Manufacturers The nutritional quality of the products as well as microbiological and sensory quality are essential factors in the food industry. The thermal processing of canned food is the most important step in the canning procedure. Currently, a large quantity of canned goods is rejected during production and has to be destroyed or reprocessed due to inefficient performances of sterilization. This increases the energy consumption and other significant food processing costs.
