The heat effect of the treatment is low and the heating of the juice is limited to only 1-3° Celsius.
The treatment is continuous and easy to retrofit into existing extraction lines. The technology is energy efficient and barely heat the product, which is otherwise detrimental to sensorial attributes like taste and color
The juiceCEPT® consists of a CEPT v6 PEF high-voltage generator and a cabinet with an optimized booster step. The equipment continuously monitors and logs pressure, temperature before and after the treatment as well as the product flow.
These sensors provide valuable information about the treatment process and allow complete quality assurance and process safety. With the flow sensor, the treatment is only enabled when there is an actual and enough flow through the system. The process connection is stainless steel, food-grade, dairy fittings.
By its activity causing natural cells, ́ electroporation facilitates juice and nutrients extraction thus reducing enzymatic and holding time. Simply feeding the product by a positive pump and controlling the flow by a magnetic flowmeter.
The juiceCEPT® solution is scalable where an increased number of units will multiply the flow rate with the same number. The juiceCEPT® is operated via controlCEPT, a Siemens-based PLC system, which is prepared for customer-based digital start/stop signals or complete integration to end-users PLC-systems.
