To highlight the synergies of Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) and Radiant Energy Vacuum Dehydration (REV™)

Elea hosts a technology forum with EnWave

REV is a fast, low-temperature drying method that retains more of the raw product’s colour, flavour, and nutritional value. PEF induces electroporation, opening cell membranes in the raw product and increasing mass transport. PEF enhances REV, accelerating processing and improving product quality.

The two-day showcase event is taking place April 21 -22 at Elea’s R&D center in Quakenbruck, Germany where leaders in food innovation from around the world will meet to learn more about the applications and benefits of these two technologies paired together to make superior shelf-stable dried foods. The event will consist of presentations from PEF and REV process experts, followed by live demonstrations and one-to-one sessions in Elea’s pilot halls.

With over 200 installed systems, Elea is the world’s leading provider of PEF systems to the food and beverage industries. PEF works by gently puncturing the cell membrane of the organic material, whatever the size of cell, leading to enhanced product and process benefits. The PEF process is targeted, gentle and clean. Using PEF facilitates faster, easier water removal and softens the raw material being processed. The advantages of using PEF for dried products include greater yield, less product waste and improved economics. Taste, smell and colour in food products are all also enhanced through the use of PEF. Elea’s PEF process accelerates drying times and can allow for the processing of higher capacities. EnWave believes that using PEF as a pre-treatment to REV™ will allow its licensed partners to innovate products of the highest quality and taste while improving processing economics.

EnWave has placed a 10kW REV™ machine at Elea’s state-of-the-art pilot plant facility in Quakenbruck, Germany to showcase the material benefits of marrying the two technologies for the production of dried fruit, vegetable, meat, seafood, dairy and confectionary products. EnWave is leveraging this machine placement and the strategic collaboration with Elea to drive new business development and sales opportunities for REV drying equipment. Elea and EnWave have also appointed ScanStore A/S as a key European sales representative specializing in the advanced fruit and vegetable processing sector.
