PROCESSING PLANTS FOR FRUIT PUREE AND COMPOTES
We build plants for the production of fruit puree and compotes, from the civil engineering work, the construction of the warehouse, to the implementation of the entire production process, and all the services necessary for the operation of a turnkey plant.
The production process for compotes, fruit juices, and concentrates includes the following phases:
Reception of raw materials
The fruit is received and stored in a cold room.
Fruit Container Dump
Feeding containers containing the product is done by a forklift truck.
The fruit is washed with shaking action to remove dirt that is in the bark of the fruit.
Water filtration system.
Visual selection process or with x-ray control.
The bucket elevator transports the product to a suitable height to load the turbo cold extraction machine.
Turbo Cold Extraction
System for "cold" extraction of fruit or vegetable puree.
A screw pump collects the product coming out of the turbo cold extractor machine and transport it to the next process.
Mixing and dosing acidic solutions for pH correction of fruit and vegetable pulp in the pH correction unit.
A process used to quickly heat fruit pulp for enzymatic inactivation.
A storage tank with an extraction pump is used to accumulate and the product and keep it warm before feeding the packaging machine.
The product can be packed in bags or bottles at a temperature of 85ºC.
Bags are subjected to a steam atmosphere at temperatures above 109ºC to extend the life of the product. Finally, a quick cool down is performed inside the same machine.
