    How 5 Electro-Magnetic Technologies Are Heating Foods Safely, Quickly, And Efficiently

    Five innovative heating techniques, including infrared (IR), microwave (MW), dielectric or radio-frequency (RF), ohmic (OH), and magnetic induction heating (MI) utilize electro-magnetic energy and can heat foods faster and more efficiently.

  • Food Irradiation Technologies: Principles, Commercial Advantages, And Limitations
    Food Irradiation Technologies: Principles, Commercial Advantages, And Limitations

    Food irradiation has proven to be a safe and effective non-thermal process for enhancing food safety and extending shelf life of a wide variety of foods. Nearly 50 countries have approved or allow food irradiation, although the foods and doses can differ by country. Gamma irradiation technology was patented more than a century ago (in 1906) and has been one of the first non-thermal technologies thoroughly tested, validated, and adopted by medical and food industry over the past 60 years. Despite this, there is a lot of misunderstanding and concerns associated with the consumer acceptance, transport, storage, occupational hazards, and disposal of radiation sources.

  • Weighing In On F&B Industry Checkweighers
    Weighing In On F&B Industry Checkweighers

    Food inspection systems using state-of-the-art technologies are most successful when they are designed with many support methods and principles. I’ve written articles on how this is true with metal detection technology, X-Ray inspection machines, and vision inspection systems. This article will explore checkweighing systems, how they add support to food safety methods and principles, and the benefits implementing them can provide food manufacturers.

     

  • Tips For Avoiding Nasty Surprises In An ERP Selection And Implementation Process
    Tips For Avoiding Nasty Surprises In An ERP Selection And Implementation Process

    The vital role that enterprise resource planning (ERP) software plays in a company makes its selection and implementation a source of risk but also a huge opportunity to gain advantages. ERP software performs many functions, but defined at a high level, ERP is a consistent way of managing a company to make money.

  • Under Pressure: Novel Technologies Are Preserving Food & Extending Shelf Life
    Under Pressure: Novel Technologies Are Preserving Food & Extending Shelf Life

    The key advantages of elevated pressures present an attractive and powerful tool to implement processing of food products and beverages at mild and ambient temperatures. However, many food processors don’t necessarily know that different types of pressure specifications and applications may lead to different microbial inactivation effects. In addition to well-known pressure homogenization and hydrostatic pressure processing, there are a few other pressure-based techniques that can be used for different categories of products in food preservation operations. Do you want to pasteurize or sterilize? Do you simply want to extend shelf life? What about added value? Here’s what you need to know about food preservation under elevated pressures.

Project Complexity And Lifecycle Costs Of Optimized Packaging Lines

Lifecycle costs of packaging lines are similar have two sets of costs: initial costs—machines and equipment — and hidden costs — integration, energy, spares, and indirect costs. To reduce these costs, a tight integration of operations and data is required across your packaging line. This video explains the concepts and advantages of optimized packaging line (OPL).
