Their proprietary continuous flow microwave processing technologies are the right solution for fruit and vegetable-based products that need to be shelf stable while maintaining nutrition, color, and flavor.
SinnovaTek can perform engineering and R&D services to support their equipment integration, ensuring that new processing lines and products are ready for production.
SinnovaTek’s approach to food processing is to use the tried and true time and temperature combinations to achieve microbial lethality and therefore a safe food product. Simultaneously, the system minimizes the over-cooking that happens in conventional systems to make sure that quality is preserved.
These systems have no hot surfaces and prevent energy leakage to ensure that operators are safe.
Because the system is getting to target temperatures faster than can happen with conventional processing systems, it can be gentler to those food products. The goal is to minimize the quality gap between unprocessed product and processed product so that those products are staying as close to fresh as possible.
SinnovaTek’s sterilization systems can retain color, flavor, and nutrition better than conventional sterilization systems. Shelf stable products sterilized with the system have tested as equivalent to pasteurized, refrigerated products in terms of freshness perception, likability, and purchase intent.
Microwave processing is a direct, volumetric form of thermal processing that is 2.5x more efficient than steam processing, which is an indirect form of thermal processing that is characterized by energy loss through thermal transfer.
Microwave is an electric form of energy that may be powered by a range of sources including renewable energy sources.
SinnovaTek’s process systems also use 1/10 of the pipe length as a conventional system for heating and thus results in less product waste. This also allows for a smaller footprint than conventional systems.
SinnovaTek’s systems may be configured to run ESL, hot fill, or aseptic products. They can run both high acid and low acid products on the same line without any physical changes. All of the changes happen in the controls system, to ensure that the thermal process parameters fit your products every time with the simple selection of the product being run.
These systems are modular and scalable over time. They are designed to build toward the future and to allow your system to grow with your volume and demand.
