LABORATORY PEF SYSTEM PERMITS PROCESS EVALUATION AND SCALE UP
A PEF (pulsed electric field) laboratory system that features PLC controls to let users automatically test numerous treatment conditions is available from Diversified Technologies, Inc. of Bedford, Massachusetts.
The Diversified Technologies Laboratory PEF System is totally integrated and features PLC controls to let users examine the utilization of pulsed electric fields over a wide range of products and treatment conditions. Capable of applying 40 kV/cm across a fluid at conductivities up to 10 mS, including 10 kV/cm into seawater, once a process is evaluated using this laboratory system, it can be scaled into a process production system.
Washdown capable, the Diversified Technologies Laboratory PEF System is designed for performing R&D experiments, batch tests, and process develop-ment at up to 50 liters/hr., depending upon the application. PEF processing works through a process of electroporation in cells which destroys the cell membranes by applying short, very high voltage pulses. Applications include food sterilization and the extraction of intracellular materials from algae.
Diversified Technologies’ Laboratory PEF System is priced from $49,995.00, depending upon configuration. Literature is available upon request.
