Diversified Technologies' PEF Pasteurization System Eliminates Use of Heat and Chemicals

BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 17, 2012) - Diversified Technologies, Inc. has introduced a highly effective pasteurization system that employs PEF (pulsed electric field) technology and does not alter the flavor of liquefied food products. Systems are now available for laboratory and full-scale production applications.

Diversified Technologies' PEF Pasteurization System achieves a > 5 log bacteria kill without heat or chemicals and is suitable for juices, yogurt, and other foods that can be pumped. Pasteurizing the liquefied food product in a chamber by employing brief pulses of very high voltage, this system does not alter the flavor or consistency of the foods and juices.

Custom engineered to process from 50 l/hr up to 10,000 l/hr throughput, Diversified Technologies' PEF Pasteurization System generates electrical pulses at up to 60 kV/cm field strength with power levels from 150 kW to 750 kW. Providing full control over pulse and frequency, PEF systems use less energy than conventional pasteurization methods, claims the firm.

Diversified Technologies' PEF Pasteurization Systems are priced from $50,000.00 for a laboratory system and from $250,000.00 for a production system. Price quotations are available upon request.
