Test lab helps optimize products and retort processing

Oct 09, 2012

Allpax was recently featured in the October 2012 issue of Packaging Digest magazine showcasing their retort solution for the National Food Lab.

The Allpax Stretch 2402 multimode R&D retort lets the NFL, a world-renowned consulting and testing organization, offer its customers best in class shelf-life evaluations, pilot plant trials, food safety, and quality assurance. The retort helps them identify the optimal combination of processing parameters (agitation and heating media) that will result in the highest quality product and maximum process efficiency across a number of variables, such as time, temperature, agitation, and heating.

Terry Berman, division manager at the NFL, says, "The NFL's new retort capability means faster time-to-market for new products and potentially better sterilization solutions for products already on the market."
