Full water immersion counterpressure retort concept

Energy contained in the storage vessel allows for an extremely short temperature come-up-time.
Water envelops the containers - even temperature penetration into the product from all sides.
Optimised water circulation system guarantees homogenous temperature distribution.
Buoyancy in full water immersion relieves sensible containers as semi-rigid trays, pouches etc.
Counterpressure control with steam in the storage vessel avoids pressure peaks and minimises stress to packaging material.
Containers are at no process phase in contact with air - oxidation of products is securely excluded.
Even, gentle but nevertheless fast cooling avoids thermal shock and post-sterilisation cooking effect.
High temperatures, transferred swiftly into the product, ensure that the required lethality effect (F-value) is obtained as fast as possible.
