STOCK's Newest Offering: ImmersaFlow™ Batch Retorts
STOCK multi-functional batch pilot retorts provide the flexibility to develop and optimize heat transfer and sensory profiles for multiple container geometries and recipe formulations utilizing various process and agitation modes. Available on-board linear deflection container sensor automatically generates the perfect auto-overpressure setpoint ramp and hold steps. Completely eliminate the guesswork of pressure profile development. Our Pilot Retort is designed to develop process formulations as well as container integrity modeling utilizing an array of processing techniques including immersion, partial immersion, saturated steam, and steam water spray to develop seamless process transitions for production sterilization equipment employing our ICON SMS controls (Sterilization Management System or host computer).
For brands moving into continuous sterilization, the Hydrolock multi-mode pilot provides process simulation to assist in modeling the best long-term solution for any given container or product. With continuous retorts, process optimization is a key factor in these high volume machines.
