A scalable PEF (pulsed electric field) pilot system for pasteurizing juices, lysing algae cells, and extracting compounds from plant materials is available from Diversified Technologies, Inc. of Bedford, Massachusetts.
Diversified Technologies’ Laboratory PEF System is a fully integrated pilot system that provides nonthermal juice pasteurization, lyses algae cells, and extracts compounds from plant materials. Suitable for R&D, batch testing, and process development of up to 100 l/hr, this pilot system can be scaled into a process production system for low volume, high value products.
Providing 5 log pathogen kill, Diversified Technologies’ Laboratory PEF System has PLC controls to let users apply pulsed electric fields over a wide range of products and treatment conditions. Capable of applying up
to 40 kV/cm across a fluid at conductivities up to 10 mS/cm, applications include juice sterilization and extracting intracellular materials from plant cells.
Diversified Technologies’ Laboratory PEF System is priced from $85,000.00, depending upon configuration. Literature is available upon request.
