PEF ADVANTAGE™ BELT
The Elea Pulsed Electric Field belt systems are the optimal solution for the treatment of the whole range of vegetables and fruits for dried products such as strawberry, kiwi, banana, peas, mushroom, bell pepper and many more.
The Elea PEF Advantage™ Belt system is available in a range of four models: PEF Advantage™ Belt One, 10, 100 & 1000 able to process capacities from 1 t/h up to 60 t/h.
All of them have a quick start-up, small footprint and can be easily implemented in your existing drying lines, e. g. hot-air/convective, vacuum, freeze or osmotic drying process.
This system allows for large energy savings and many product benefits.
ELEA PEF BENEFITS FOR DRIED FOOD
The Elea PEF Advantage™ Belt Pulsed Electric Field treatment enables gentle cell opening of plant cells in carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, bananas, strawberries and many other fruits and vegetables. This results in water leakage and a softer raw material that’s much easier to process and brings added benefit to the production of dried products, resulting in greater yield, less product shrinkage and larger volume. Taste, smell and colour are all also intensified. Elea PEF accelerates drying times and can process higher capacities.
ELEA PEF UNLOCKS THE TRUE POTENTIAL OF RAW MATERIALS FOR DRIED FOOD
Improved colour, better taste, less shrinkage, less energy usage. Elea PEF reveals new applications to both process and raw produce.
Elea PEF Advantage™ Belt: saving energy, increasing yield and improving colour and quality.
PEF brings positive and dramatic changes to the manufacturing process as well as to the actual raw materials themselves.
Through PEF, we can create radical new opportunities for food. Elea PEF alters the cell structure and raw materials have their full potential released. For example, these red bell pepper slices above, one untreated and the other one Elea PEF
treated, shows clearly improved water release on the PEF treated product. Because of that, the drying process is much faster and color is intensified.
The PEF Advantage™ Belt One. The latest system designed by Elea is a compact industrial scale system for pre-treatment of freeze dried, vacuum dried, hot-air dried and osmotic dried products.
