Brighter colour, better taste and longer shelf-life provided by PEF Advantage Pipe

When it comes to processing juices and smoothies, greater yields, improved taste and flavour and minimal loss of nutrients are just some of the benefits of using an Elea PEF Advantage Pipe system.

Elea PEF Advantage Pipe systems extend the shelf life of juice, smoothies, milk, wine and other liquid consumables with Pulsed Electric Field and at a much lower temperature than traditional thermal pasteurisation. This means your customers can enjoy higher quality, fresh and colourful juice that hasn’t compromised on essential nutrients or flavour.

Extraction with PEF Advantage Pipe is enhanced with valuable vitamins, colour and antioxidants from fruit processing which ultimately results in higher yields.

Our PEF Advantage Pipe systems create plenty of positive changes to the manufacturing process including less machine down-time. Also, as juices and smoothies have a longer shelf life,  it means

that there’s potential for greater market reach and better distribution of your product.

The PEF Advantage Pipe range of systems have processing capacities from 50L to 10,000L per hour and each individual system has a hygienic integrated design that is both CIP and SIP ready.

Our Pulsed Electric Field systems put control in the hands of the operator and mean that our clients have full customisation of the process parameters. The modular design of the PEF Advantage Pipe system is simple to configure and easy to maintain and what’s more, close monitoring ensures compliance with all HACCP requirements.
