Holmach are proud to be introducing the new Rocking System®, launched last year by Lagarde Autoclaves. The new retort will be presented from Stand B041, Hall 10.1 at the exhibition in Cologne next week (20-23 March)
This first steam and air retort Rocking System® will reduce cycle times, whilst retaining the products’ organoleptic qualities and carefully respecting the packaging shape. This is an exclusive application that uses the basket’s loading and unloading system to agitate the product load, whilst sterilisation or pasteurisation takes place.
The benefit of a rocking machine is particularly seen with milk applications, as this reduces the challenges of the Maillard effect – a non-enzymatic reaction between sugars and proteins that occurs upon heating, that causes the product to caramelise/brown.
Machine configurations are available in 1- 4 baskets and the system is easily adapted for all container types. It is most efficient with high viscosity products such as soups, sauces and cream dishes. As with other Lagarde machines, the Rocking System offers high rates of efficiency, low energy consumption and is also compatible with the latest user-friendly interface, the S.U.® Control System.
With expert guidance from Lagarde and Holmach personnel, producers can configure the optimum movement for each process. Test facilities are available to customers in both the UK and France.
As the sole UK agent for Lagarde Autoclaves, with many years of expertise, Holmach representatives will be available throughout the exhibition period to discuss your retorting requirements. To make an appointment, call Holmach on: 01780 749 097 or visit Stand B041, Hall 10.1
