Accelerated freeze drying
Faster moisture release
Better sensory attributes
The Elea Pulsed Electric Field belt systems are the optimal solution for the treatment of the whole range of vegetables and fruits for freeze dried products such as strawberry, kiwi, banana, peas, mushroom, bell pepper and many more. The Elea SmoothCut™ system is available in a range of four models: SmoothCut 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 production line. This system allows large energy and water savings along many other process and product benefits.
Faster freeze drying
Low energy use
Reduced water consumption
Faster process time
Enhanced process optimisation
The Elea SmoothCut™ 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 freeze dried products, resulting in greater yield, less product shrinkage and larger volume. Taste, smell and color are all also intensified. Elea PEF accelerates freeze drying times and can process higher capacities. The SmoothCut™ system saves energy and reduces water consumption.
Elea SmoothCut™: saving energy and lowering water usage, 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 freeze drying process is much faster and color is intensified.
The SmoothCut™ One. The latest system designed by Elea is a compact industrial scale system for pre-treatment of freeze dried products.
