Steritort LAB RETORT, pilot-plant sterilizer, agitated, Y4486



The FMC Steritort Rotary Sterilizer is designed to conduct pilot plant studies of processing methods for canned or glassed food products, such as determining the rate of heat penetration and / or cooling rates, for new products, so that they may then be scaled-up for production level operations. The " Universal" model is manufacturer rated to simulate process conditions for both agitated, and non-agitating retort modes of processing; e.g. simulating still retorts, spriral retorts, and/or orbiting sterilizers (e.g. "Orbitorts"). Easily removable, interchangeable reels permit testing of a range of can sizes in one lab sterilizer.
